1973 Chevelle Laguna will demonstrate the most powerful engine ChevroletOctober 17, 2018
Chevrolet was one of the first to announce its desire to become a participant in the automotive exhibition Special Estate Equipment Association (SEMA). Already at the end of the month the concept of the updated 2019 model year Chevrolet Camaro will be presented. However, it has now become further known that the company will also present a new line of motors in the bodies of old concepts.
For this purpose, Chevrolet will use three cars: the 1973 Chevelle Laguna, the 1967 C10 and the 1978 Silverado. Chevelle Laguna will get a new 6.2-liter LTL engine with a maximum power of up to 755 horsepower and 970 Nm of torque. In addition, the retro car will receive a carbon fiber hood.
An old pickup Chevrolet C10 will show us the engine ZZ6 EFI, which is considered by the manufacturer itself to be the best engine for various retro projects. Its power is up to 420 horsepower. A fairly heavy truck on the 1978 K10 Silverado platform will show the new L96 engine capable of developing up to 360 horsepower and 515 Nm of torque.
“The expanding engine lineup of Chevrolet Performance offers something for every enthusiast and his or her dream project,” – said Jim Campbell, GM’s vice president of car sales, in a statement.
