A flat plane engine isn't going to solve the induction noise problem, if the car has forced induction, IMO.
If you talking V8 R8, it´s good car for it´s price 120k€, car and driver except that Bmw is double priced (250k€) so engine need to be something special, I think ordinary V8 is not that.
Can they make it? I don´t know, but always can speculate. 250k€ price is so high that they maybe can make engine just for M8, there are also lots of little manufacturer which are trouble on emission requipments and they maybe intrested on new tecnology flat plane V8tt engine, it sound also good.
