Chevrolet Reveals 10-litre 1,004Hp Naturally-Aspirated V8 Engine

This should be Chevy’s final hurrah as far as super-powered ICE performance before switching to EVs

  • This mill is not street-legal. It’s meant for drag racing.

  • Total output 1,004 horsepower and 876 lb.-ft. of torque.

We’ve said this before and we will again: These are automotive golden days. As we near the switch over to electric vehicles, automakers are having some fun with final internal combustion engines. GM is seriously invested in the switch, but they’ve got one final biggest and most powerful V8 ever for sale for drag racing enthusiasts.

Chevrolet’s Performance division has just revealed details on their latest and last internal combustion engine designed for drag racing. The 632-cubic-inch ZZ632/1000 crate engine is not for street use. The iron-block V8 produces a massive 1,004 horsepower and 876 lb.-ft. of torque without any type of forced induction.

This new crate engine will either replace or complement the current 9.4-litre ZZ527/740R Deluxe, rated at 727 hp and 680 lb.-ft. and priced at $16,000. Pricing for the ZZ632/1000 is not yet known however we suspect it’ll hover in the low $20,000s.

The new ZZ632/1000 10-litre V8 will debut at next month’s SEMA show in Las Vegas and deliveries will begin in early 2022.
