It looks like no one told the guys at GM Performance Parts that oil prices are now at record highs because early next year they’ll be launching a modern interpretation of the classic 427 ZL-1 V8 engine. The new big-block will have a price tag of $20,000 and only 427 examples will be made. The engines will be constructed from the original tooling used during the late 1960s, which was recovered recently when a GM Racing team member spotted it in a Michigan scrap yard.

Like the original 7.0L monster, the new V8 will be rated at 430hp and 610Nm (450lb-ft) of torque, reports Ward’s Auto


ZL1 FTW!!! :drool:

Very true, I am not saying I would get one, but for a purist that wants a ZL1 engine, they are willing to pay the price.

I agree with you for the purpose of making a clone car, but if you just want a big engine, i dont think this is the route.
