Check this out. Even a Pontiac guy can appreciate this.

They say it's powered by a "7 liter" Ford V8. But didn't Ford make three totally different 7-liter V8's: a 427, a 428 and a 429? Wonder which it is?

a 6.6 liter is a 455.. so like a 502 (although a bowtie number) would be about 7 liters! How sweet!

If a 5L engine is a about 305 CI, then a 7L is a 427CI, when I do the calculations.

Liters times 61 usually gives you a good cubic inch estimate

yep, 1 litre = 61 cubic inches. So 6.6L=400 ci. A 455 would be 7.4L Its interesting(in a good way) to see a supercar powered by a pushrod engine instead of a DOHC.

(from the mentioned article)
...the car has enough ground effects at 160 mph to stick to an inverted roadway.

If it's true, that's impressive.

I had a '79 T/A with the 6.6 (at least that's what the shaker hood scoop said). I'm pretty sure that was a 401?

A 401 was an AMC Javelin engine. That T/A would either have a 400 or 403.

The Calloway is just a tuner Corvette. It's not a car all on its own so that eliminates it. I don't think the Vector ever made it into production, did it? Too bad. Last I read, that guy was working on version # 12 or something. Maybe, one of these days...
