A 427!!! Small block!
Like to shove this under the hood of my camaro!
Now, will there be another LS7 powered chevrolet? GTO? Cool no matter what.
Most impressive is the new "LS7" 7.0-liter/427-cubic-inch Gen IV V-8 with
lightweight reciprocating components that was directly lifted from the
all-conquering C5-R. This small-block 427, which will be hand built at GM
Powertrain's new Performance Build Center in Wixom, MI, delivers 500
horsepower at 6200 rpm, 475 lb.-ft. of torque at 4800 rpm, has an 11.0:1
compression ratio and a 7000 rpm redline, and features titanium connecting
rods and intake valves, and a dry-sump engine lubrication system. The ZO6
also features major modifications from the stock C6, including aluminum body
structure with one-piece hydroformed perimeter frame rails and a magnesium
front cradle, a fastback fixed roof design to optimize body rigidity and
aerodynamics, and carbon-fiber composite front fenders and front
wheelhouses. The ZO6 also has a unique front fascia incorporating a larger
grille, cold-air scoop and lower air splitter with "Gurney lips" along the
sides, larger vertical air vents behind the wheels, wide-body rear fenders
with brake scoops and a unique rear spoiler. The package of aero tweaks
delivers a Cd of .31.
