A 5000 cc V8 is not exactly small. Besides, that doesn't matter too much. eg. the McLaren MP4-12C produces over to 616 bhp from a 3.8 litre V8.

It would be quite a feat if they do succeed in producing 700 ponies from a V8.
Additionally, If they do indeed succeed, I'm beginning to wonder if the car will be as much fun with so much power going through the rear wheels or would we have another SLS where its just 'too much'. I find the F-type, from all the reviews I've read, In its V6S iteration to be the best balance of all the variants on offer.

Either way, I look forward to it.
