The milestone engine is a 638-hp supercharged LS9 small-block,  the powerplant behind the 205-mph Corvette. It represents the fourth generation of the small-block and is the most powerful engine ever built by GM for a regular-production car. GM will preserve the engine as part of its historical collection.
