  Devel Sixty is Made for Your Inner GI Joe Devel Motors is at it again with a new prototype called the Devel Sixty that reminds us of GI Joe’s Mobile Support Vehicle (MSV) from the early 1970s. Except instead of eight wheels, the Sixty has only six. The black beauty with gold trim (Joe’s was yellow) was unveiled at the 2017 Dubai International Motor Show last week.This year, the company also introduced another Devel Sixteen prototype that looks like rocket ship made for the Caped Crusader. It has an alleged 5,000 horsepower, which seems a bit excessive in case anyone is keeping track at home.But back to the Mobile Support Vehicle—it was the coolest truck in the world.

Chevrolet just announced the 755- hp Corvette ZR1, but no matter how incredible it is to drive, it’s going to have a But considering how big a deal the mid - engine Corvette is, assume that Chevrolet will keep an extremely tight lid on photos and information until the moment it decides to reveal the car.

Highlights from the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals!

  Highlights from the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals! On the final approach of Chicago’s massive O’Hare Airport sits the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. The massive building is host to what many consider the gathering place for the biggest and coolest indoor shows dedicated to the American muscle car. And while the sounds of GE, Rolls Royce, and Pratt &The annual Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, common known as MCACN among its participants and diehard attendees, is the brainchild of Bob and Vicki Ashton. These two, with high-octane leaded fuel pumping through their veins, got the idea years ago to create the ultimate indoor show just for muscle cars, but also the lifestyle promotional marketing items from back in the day.

The leaked engine has been a number of places online, including in this tweet: It does appear to be Our pal Bozi points out that the engine appears similar to GM’s 3.6-liter turbo V6 LGW engine , at According to the tweet there, the new V8 will be called the LT7, and “will likely form the basis of GM’s

Leaked analyst document reveals three engine choices for the next-generation Vette. Apparently, there will be three of them, all V8s. According to the engine production forecasting document , GM will soon start production of two new DOHC V8 engines at the Tonawanda plant in New York.

Corvette Forum is citing a document shared by a forum member, which is purported to be a forecast of engine production from analysts IHS Markit that spells out Chevy's near-term plans for the Corvette, or rather, Corvettes plural.

Mind you, this is all pretty speculative since we can't know the veracity of the document, and a lot of earnest interpretation and numbers-crunching by forum members is also involved, but here's what the forum has gleaned from it:

— The mid-engine C8 Corvette, expected to be revealed at the Detroit auto show, will have three V8 engine choices: the current 6.2-liter V8, along with a 4.2-liter and a 5.5-liter, both of those DOHC, both of them twin-turbo.

— Production of the two DOHC engines has already begun at GM's Tonawanda powertrain facility in Buffalo, N.Y.

— Interestingly, IHS Market predicts the 6.2L to be the main choice of buyers, projecting 14,000 units per year before its popularity starts to taper off. That number appears to be exclusive to the C8 and doesn't seem to include that engine's application in the C7 since GM sold 40,000 units of that car last year.

Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

  Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 This month, Chevrolet showed off the long-awaited 2019 Corvette ZR1. Making 755 hp and 715 lb-ft of torque from a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8, the new ultimate Corvette can hit a top speed of 210 mph, according to Chevy. At the moment, there’s no official price, but considering that the C6 ZR1 came with a base price north of $100,000, expect the new one to be even pricier. Speaking of the C6, how does the new ZR1's design compare to the old one? Research chevrolet corvette See All Model Years See Pricing Up front, you get a much more aggressive look this time around.

According to a market analyst document from IHS Markit which was leaked by a Corvette Forum user, the new Corvette C8 will come with two new As for the actual power figures, the 5.5-liter V8 is expected to produce as much as 850 hp and 720lb-ft of torque, which sounds exciting to say the least.

Bone-stock, the powerplant churns out 755 hp but Hennessey can up that to 850 hp , and a claimed run from 0 to 60 mph of 2.6 seconds. What you need to keep in mind is that these estimated power ratings are measured at the engine . Hennessey mentions that power levels will be measured at the

— The DOHC engines would be more exclusive, with the 4.2-liter produced at a rate of 7,000 per year, and the 5.5L at 5,000. By the way, there's no correlation in the document between engines and trim levels.

— Forum members have sussed out that the 5.5-liter engine could make 850 horsepower and 720 pound-feet of torque — so likely, that's the ZR1. They reckon the output of the 4.2L at around 650 horsepower.

— The document mentions a use case for the 4.2-liter engine in a "Cadillac Sports Car," but at numbers so low, the folks at the forum think it must be only for racing. Or maybe not.

— And finally, the current front-engine, rear-drive C7 Corvette will live on for perhaps three more years, with motor production scheduled to continue through 2021.

We'll get confirmation on any or all of the above when the mid-engine Corvette is expected to hit the floor at the North American International Auto Show in January.
