" Ford Performance has been working on developing a more powerful variant of the existing naturally-aspirated Ford 7.3 V8 Godzilla powerplant dubbed Megazilla. At that time, the automaker didn’t share any more details on this new engine other than the fact that it will produce more power than the Godzilla, which generates 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Now, this new trademark filing for Megazilla hints that this new powerplant may very well be offered in crate motor form, too.....

What’s particularly interesting about this Megazilla patent is the fact that it doesn’t just list this potential offering as an ICE-powered engine – but rather, an electric motor as well. It’s unclear what this means for the future use of the Megazilla name, though it’s worth noting that the recently-released Eluminator is the automaker’s very first electric crate motor, and is derived from the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT. However, at least for the time being, it certainly seems like the Megazilla will be offered as a more powerful, performance-focused version of the existing Godzilla gas engine, if it does indeed come to fruition."

I just want to point out that the Japanese Market Nissan Skyline is referred to as
Godzilla.

Ford own the US automotive trade marks for Skyline(part of why Nissan renamed it to just GT-R when it went global with the R35) and Godzilla.

Ford can make a Skyline with a Godzilla.......

If a BMW can identify as a Toyota, why the hell not?
