Borrowed from the Corvette ZR1, the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 is now available as a crate engine.

Showing off its latest crate engines, General Motors has installed the Corvette ZR1's supercharged V8 in a 1973 Chevelle Laguna.

Chevrolet's most powerful production engine ever, the LT5 6.2-liter V8 is rated at 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque.

Designers created a new hood for the Chevelle that evokes the ZR1's carbon fiber hood, while the front and rear spoilers pay homage to NASCAR racers of the '70s.

The company is also bringing a 1967 C/10 with the all-new ZZ6 EFI 5.7-liter V8 crate engine and a 1978 Silverado with the L96 6.0-liter V8 crate engine.

The trio of modified historical cars will be on display October 30 through November 2.
