Mini Corvette Engine Runs at 11,000 RPM

It may not sound much different that a weed-whacker, but I can assure you that if this 1/6 scale replica of the 1964 Corvette L76 327 cubic-inch V8 was put into a tiny car, it would give a Leprechaun the ride of its life.

Corvette Speedboat Comes Equipped With Actual 505-HP 'Vette Engine

If Ben Heck modded speedboats, I like to think it'd turn out similar to Malibu's Z06 Corvette Speedboat, which is Frankensteined with a 505-HP LS7 Corvette Engine.
