Chevrolet Performance is showing off the new LT4 crate engine in the most attractive way possible - under the hood of a classic 1970 Camaro RS. The concept vehicle was introduced at the 2015 SEMA Show, in Las Vegas.
As the supercharged 6.2L heart of the Corvette Z06, the LT4 is rated at 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful production-vehicle engine ever from General Motors. The new crate engine - offered in dry-sump and wet-sump versions - allows builders to use the high-tech performance engine in their hot rod projects.
To harness the power of the supercharged powertrain, the concept's chassis and suspension systems have been upgraded with an independent front suspension with coil-overs and a rack-and-pinion steering system, as well as a four-link rear suspension, also with coil-overs. It rides on a set of 19-inch polished aluminum wheels and stops with the assistance of Corvette Z06-based front and rear disc brake kits developed as upgrades for the Stingray.
