2018 Woodward Dream Cruise: What the Designers Actually Drive

Motor Trend Logo Motor Trend | Slide 2 of 10: Tony Churchwell, paint shopBeneath the hood of this lovely Impala sport-roof sleeper adorned with lowly "283" engine badges beats the heart of an angry 6.2-liter LS3 Small Block being force-fed by a pair of giant Garrett turbos and intercoolers. Tony has yet to dyno this setup, but he runs consistent 10.60-second, 135-mph quarter-mile times. A super cool touch: Inside the cockpit he has a Samsung tablet magnet-mounted to the dash that uses a Bluetooth connection to an OBD port dongle that gives him several screens' worth of engine gauge information. Using switches mounted in the ashtray, he can also toggle between 10 and 18 psi of boost pressure, the latter setting serving only when running racing fuel. One of his proudest moments: Beating a Hellcat with the 10-psi setting! Now that's an ashtray application we can endorse!
