The General Motors supercharged LT4 small-block V8 package is nuts. It produces 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque through the likes of the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 as well as the third-generation Cadillac CTS-V. More recently, the engine has been dropped into a mid-size off-road truck known as the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. And let us just tell you, it’s quite the combo. Check it out, right here.
Chevrolet recently announced that the sixth-generation Camaro will be retired at the close of 2024.

Maybe that’s what made The Black Ghost such a spectacle, the mystery of it all. But in any case, the story of this classic ride is tremendous, and truly worth the watch.
