A few weeks back, we told you that GM was going to offer the 2019 ZR1 engine for sale in a crate form. Well SEMA is this week and GM did indeed show off the crate LT5 installed in a 1973 Chevrolet Chevelle Laguna. The price of the LT5 has also been announced, $17,915.00. Not bad for a drop-in and play 755hp!
Not to be outdone, Dodge has announced a crate engine with 1,000-hp. They have named this beast the Hellephant, a 426-cubic-inch (7.0L), 3.0-liter twin-screw supercharged, V8. The name comes from the muscle car days 426 engine Dodge called the Elephant, because of its size and weight, and the current Hellcat engine; hence the Hellephant moniker.
And then Specialty Vehicle Engineering showed off their LT1 based Stage I (835-hp) and Stage II (1,000-hp) offerings. As we brought you a few months ago, both the Stage I and Stage II can be ordered directly from your Chevrolet dealership as options on a new Grand Sport.
Did you ever think that you could walk into and American car dealer and drive out with a 1,000hp under the hood? With American car manufactures turning to hybrid power, this may just be the start of another HP war.
