GM unveiled a V-16 engine concept at Detroit's North American International Auto Show in January, which was designed, according to Tom Stephens, vice president of GM Powertrain Division, as a "showcase for the future direction of the small-block architecture." From that statement, we can draw an accurate sketch of the V-8 powering the next-gen Vette. The "XV16" is rated at over 1000 horsepower and over 1000 lb-ft of torque. Sawed in half, the 828 cubic-inch (13.6-liter) V-16 would yield two 414 cubic-inch (6.8-liter) aluminum V-8s, each making 500 horses and 500 lb-ft of torque.


Compare them to the larger and far heavier 500-horsepower, 505-cubic-inch V-10 used to propel the approximately 250-pound-heavier Viper. Our best guess is that the new car will launch with a 425-horse, 350-cubic-inch engine. Approximately a year later, a Z06 version making around 500 horsepower will take on the exotics from Europe--and polish off the Dodge Viper. Already, an ultra-powerful development mule called the "Blue Devil" is jetting about GM's test loop, shaking down that next Z06 powerplant.

Yea, but they forgot one little item - the V-10 Viper Hemi engine (2005) that produces over 600HP. :lol: Idiots....
