Designed, developed and manufactured in-house, the Mercury Racing 32-Valve DOHC SB4 7.0 engine adapts our proven high-performance valve train to a customized LS-based cylinder block that produces a staggering 750 naturally aspirated horsepower. Mercury Racing’s advanced four-valve cylinder head combustion system and dual overhead camshaft valve train provide significantly improved performance and durability compared to a standard two-valve design.

Roadster Shop re-engineered and rebuilt both iconic American muscle cars featuring Mercury Racing’s 750hp SB4 crate engine.

Viewing of the sports cars  will be available 6pm-9pm Saturday, July 20.  Entrance to the Concours area in Elkhart Lake is free to all spectators.
