The Scuderi Group has announced its proof-of-concept prototype of the Scuderi Split-Cycle Engine. The one-liter, gasoline, naturally aspirated engine, along with its Air-Hybrid component, is expected to reach significant gains in fuel efficiency and emit up to 80% less toxins than vehicles on the road today. The engine ­is considered one of the most significant advancements in internal combustion engines since the Otto Cycle over 130 years ago and promises to give OEMs a new way of burning fuel cleaner while not having to invest significant new costs in the production process. The engine is also a solution to meeting the tough emissions standards going into effect around the world.
