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.
