One for each wheel? We hope they're wide.
If there's one American-made engine that is suitable for just about any swap, it has to the LS. We can hear the Ford boys already moaning, and the Dodge guys are whining about how much power a Hellcat can make, but if you want something powerful and reliable, the Chevy LS range is the go-to. We've seen it in the notoriously unreliable Mazda RX-7, we've seen it in a tiny Chevy Sonic, and we've even seen it in a Rolls-Royce. LS swaps are popular, but one man has taken the concept to another level, by swapping the popular engine into the same car twice - at the same time.
This crazy machine was created by Gordon Tronson, a man whose dual-engine creations have garnered him a level of notoriety in the tuning scene. His latest build is clearly based on the Chevrolet Corvette and has no name, although the company that had the vehicle on display at Hot August Nights - AMS Oil - calls it the world's first Super Super Car. A more imaginative name could not have been created with a think tank of the country's greatest marketing minds. All jokes aside, performance from this crazy car is expected to be very serious indeed, with each of the rebuilt and supercharged LT4 engines expected to produce 650 horsepower with 640 lb-ft of torque.
That means that the car will produce a total of 1,300 hp if all goes according to plan. Based on the massively wide back end and the minimal ground clearance, we suspect that all of that is supposed to go to the rear wheels. That makes us wonder just how the projected capabilities of 290-300 mph will be achieved without a mile of smoke preceding any attempt at a top speed run. Wild claims aside, there's no doubt that this machine, whatever it ends up being called, is one of the most interesting and wacky projects we've ever seen. Since it looks more like a backyard build than a Pagani or Koenigsegg, we won't be volunteering for that top speed attempt - if it ever happens.
