You may have heard that Chevrolet will be unveiling the new seventh-generation Corvette in 2014. What you may not have heard is that it will also be packing an all-new powerplant: the LT1.
We got a sneak preview of the new engine at SEMA 2012. Chevrolet had a completed engine on a stand as well as a display showing each of the engine’s internals. Before we go into what’s new, I’d like to take a moment to talk about the history of the LT1 name.
