According to 9News Australia, it all started when a woman contacted the National Roads and Motorists' Association (NRMA)—basically the Australian version of AAA—for help with what was thought to be a dead battery.

After arriving, an NRMA patrolman opened the hood of the car and made a shocking discovery. He saw what turned out to be a diamond python sitting on the engine and realized "there it was right in front of my face."

The python was released “at a suitable location” a short time after being removed from the woman's car.

Chevrolet supercharges the Silverado with the Silverado Performance concept .
It's just a concept for now.The best part of the truck is under the hood. Here, the smallest 5.3-liter V8 is thoroughly heated up with an intercooled supercharger based on the unit used on the LT4 engine in the Corvette Z06 and Camaro ZL1. Chevrolet claims it adds over 100 horsepower, which means the 5.3's standard 355 horsepower would jump to at least 455. That would also mean it makes 35 more horsepower than the available 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8. That does present the question of why GM wouldn't have simply supercharged the 6.2-liter, but we applaud the company for considering the potential of more than just the top-spec powertrains.
