Info on the car is on their website now...it's a 427 motor:
510+ BHP @ 6000 RPM
530 lbs-ft of torque @ 4600 RPM

Isn't that a little low for a 427?

If that's just for the engine, I am not sure. I know that the tuner shop near me will do a 447 (that's 40, not 20) for $18-20k after core, and I think he said it's 500-550 range at the rear but I'll have to double check if it's important to anyone. It is definitely pricey for a 427, on Mallett's site I believe the 427 upgrade is $15k.

This is the stats from Mallett's 427.

427cid engine upgrade (uses genuine C5R block)$15,000.00

I believe that is $15,000 ABOVE the base Mallett CTS-V package price, which is $16,500... The C5 R block is about a third of that price alone.

If i remember reading right the motor in the C5R lemans series car costs 26 or 28 grand. I might be wrong though

The engine can produce more power but the Lingenfelter cars are developed to be smooth and reliable. If you review the tuner shootouts over the years their cars usually win, do not break and perform as advertised. Speaking as one who owns one. Catera V
