It wouldn’t be a big auto show if there weren’t cutaway engines and other components. Above is the all-new LT1 engine from the new C7 Corvette Stingray, which has direct injection for power (450 HP, 450 lbs ft) and cylinder deactivation for fuel economy. I wonder what Ed Cole, who designed the original small block Chevy V8, whose bore centers the new engine continues to match, would say about 30+ MPG on the highway from a car with more than one horsepower per cubic inch displacement. In the gallery are also included the new Madza SkyActive Diesel engine for the new Mazda6, the Viper V10, a cutaway Porsche wasserboxer from the Boxster, and a complete NASCAR Sprint Cup drivetrain from Toyota.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
