V8 Cars

V8 Cars are renowned the world over for their power, growl, and acceleration. Although most often associated with American muscle cars, the V8 is a favourite of a number of international car manufacturers, and you'll find a wide variety of used V8 cars in South Africa.

What Makes a V8?

A V8 engine has a few distinctive features that set it apart from other auto mobile engines. Firstly, like its name, the engine resembles a V shape, formed by the arrangement of the cylinders. Secondly, the engine is very powerful, and as a result often mainly found on muscle cars, pick up trucks, or luxury and sports models. V8 engines are also only found in rear-wheel drive vehicles, as the size of the engine bore is generally far too large for front wheel drive configurations.

Common V8 Cars

There is a wide variety of V8 cars in South Africa, hailing from all over the world. Most common of course, are the American varieties. Chevrolets are perhaps among the most iconic V8s to be found, with classic models such as the 1980s Chevrolet Corvette, and of course the Camaro. Newer models include the Lumina, available in a variety of configurations from four-door Sedan to pick up. Chevrolet trucks themselves often sport V8 engines too, and once again range from the stylish to the rugged and practical. There are some other notable V8 cars in addition to the famous American vehicles.

The luxurious Rolls Royce and Bentley vehicles still use a classic V8 design that hails back to the 1950s and are as luxurious as ever. As a result, and thanks to the history and a steady demand, used V8 cars are a common occurrence, and picking up secondhand V8 car will of course be a lot cheaper than buying new. That said, if you're looking for the classics, then this may not always be the case.

Whatever kind of V8 car in South Africa you're looking for, owning one will always be an investment, as well as a pleasure to drive. V8s are unlikely to ever lose demand, and as newer models age, they often become very desirable to collectors. Regardless of whether you're looking for a sleek modern design, or timeless classic, a V8 car is always a solid choice.
