What do we know about this engine or is it still under wraps?

"it (C6.R) will use a 5.5-liter Chevy V-8 based on a brand-new powerplant to be used throughout the GM line"

A carbon-carbon piston placed inside a carbon-carbon cylinder sleeve might operate with virtually no gap, substantially diminishing this environmental problem."

There are still likely some materials developments down the road that could make the ICE viable for a long time.

But somehow the powertrain guys and gals manage to get more HP, more refinement and more fuel economy with less emissions every year. It wasn't that long ago the Corvette and Camaro were barely cracking 300 HP and the Camaro now has that with the base engine.

On another note, the original Z/28 was based on racing specs, wouldn't it be interesting if the new 5.5 V8 introduced for racing was put in the Z/28, I mean UniRainbow?
