Furthermore, all V6 and V8 engines, produced by Lexus have been engineered by using modern applications and modifications. For example, the V-type engines are arranged by placing two rows of cylinders, angled 60-degrees while the cylinders in the V8 version are angled at 90-degrees, which ensures compact packaging and maximum power and fuel efficiency. Also, there is a detail that still impresses engineers – the crankshaft at the bottom of the V rotates in main bearings secured into the engine block by numerous bearing caps – four for the V6 and five for the V8 engines. Sweet!
