With the recently concluded 2017 New York Auto Show displaying hordes of muscle and sports cars, we are in awe at how many new vehicles will be soon swooping in and out of our roads. The newly unveiled high powered American muscle - 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon also graced the halls of the Auto Show with its 2.7 L supercharger that produces up to 808 hp. But hoping to steal the spotlight from the Dodge Challenger SRT is the latest vehicle of the Trans Am: the 2017 Trans Am Super Duty.
The Pontiac label was put to its shallow grave after General Motors axed the brand in 2010 as a result of financial dilemma. But now the Pontiac's classic muscle car is given a second life in the form of the 2017 Trans Am 455 Super Duty. The previous Trans Am vehicles were modelled from the 5th generation Chevrolet Camaro and General Motor's Zeta chassis, now the newly unveiled Trans Am 455 Super Duty is probably the first unit ever produced that is molded around the sixth gen Chevy Camaro and the lightweight Alpha chassis.
The biggest asset of this beast of a vehicle is its 455 cubic inch (7.4 L) variant of the GM's recent generation V LT1 V8 engine equipped with a Magnuson TVS2300 supercharger that produces up to 14 psi of boost- which has 0.5 less psi compared to the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Trans Am Worldwide further revealed that the engine of the 455 Super Duty was made in partnership with a still unnamed premier NASCAR engine builder hailing from Martinsville, Virginia. Turns out, our guesses would directly point to the Arrington Performance by the very own NASCAR racer and team owner Joey Arrington. A cold air intake and purely ceramic coated headers, with 3.0 inch of exhaust powers contribute to an impressive 1,000 hp and 1,046 lb-ft of torque: a 160 hp and 276 lb-ft more than the Demon's performance on gas and 192 hp and 329 lb-ft more than the Demon's execution on 91 octane.Read the entire article Meet the Dodge SRT Demon's Ultimate Challenger: The Trans AM 1,000 HP Super Duty
Contacting Father Damien Karras, Hennessey’s new “Exorcist” Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is getting out of control! We already know that Dodge is well on its way to unwrap its very own SRT Demon Challenger. Not to be outdone, Hennessey is also out to steal the limelight with its very own---The Exorcist. The horror of all horrors!
Hennessey Performance Engineering has created a 1000hp monster out of the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1-- and even naming it after one of the “most profitable” horror movies ever made. But, way before Hennessey had cast its evil chants on the poor Camaro, the devilish muscle car already packs a strong 650hp and 650 lb ft-of torque. As if the Hellcats and SRT Demons aren’t good enough. Or should we say, “bad enough” for the hell’s standards.
With the new package, the 6.2-liter LT4 V8 receives a modified ECU, new larger intakes and an updated intercooler. Aside from the sufficiently large supercharger, Hennessey further enhanced the engine with long tube stainless steel headers, ported factory heads and high performance camshaft. Overall, this provides the LT4 with an extra 350hp and 316lb-ft of torque.Read the entire article Hennessey unleashes the new Exorcist Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
One of the many advantages of buying muscle cars is that they are never perversely expensive. Of course, it won’t be as affordable as the budget cars but they do offer excellent value. A good example of this is the Chevrolet Camaro, which in the U.S., is priced roughly at about $26,000.
However, the same cannot be said of other big markets like China. General Motors just announced that in China, its sixth-generation Camaro will have a starting price of RMB 399,900, which in current exchange rates comes in at about $58,000. That’s right, it is indeed double the U.S. price.
There are many possible reasons for the high difference in price and one of this is that the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired to the automatic eight-speed transmission costs almost the same as that of the high-end ZL1 in the U.S.Read the entire article Chevy Camaro for Chinese market is priced at $58,000, US version is being sold for half this price
Because of the fact that local automobile manufacturer, Holden, has stopped production in the country. Australia is about to lose its homegrown muscle cars now that the Commodore has come its way as the Opel Insignia’s variant. However, Crossover Car Conversions, Australia’s leading import and conversion specialist since 1990, that has a wide array of choices from a Mustang, Camaro, to Ford GT, is offering a right-hand drive Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 as an alternative.
But it isn’t that simple. The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 has a base price of $63,435 with a six-speed manual, and if you want a 10-speed manual, it will cost you $65,830. But it doesn’t end there. Having the car shipped all the way to Australia will means you’ll have to add shipping fees and local taxes. So, getting the ZL1 and then converting it to a right-hand drive will be very costly. In fact, simply swapping the steering wheel will cost you another $33,700 (44,000 Australian dollars), and after adding all the other costs, the Camaro will have a price tag price of around $115,000 ($150,000 AUD).
With a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that can yield up to 650 horsepower (485 kilowatts) and 650 pound-feet (880 Newton-metres) of torque, the ZL1 is actually the fastest Camaro ever, having a top speed of 198 miles per hour (318 kilometers per hour). Furthermore, due to its 10-speed automatic rapid acceleration, it can shift much faster than a Porsche dual-clutch PDK - that in just 3.5 seconds, it can sprint from 0 to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour). The 2017 Camaro ZL1 is definitely one powerful machine.Read the entire article Costs of bringing in and converting Chevy Camaro ZL1 in Australia are very high
The recently unveiled road-going Chevrolet Camaro – the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE track-capable sports car – is simply amazing in terms of performance. Already boasting an array of aerodynamic technologies, the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE is powered by the LT4 supercharged engine that could offer up to 650 hp of output as mated to a manual six-speed transmission.
But it seems General Motors isn’t finished yet with the Chevrolet Camaro. While we were getting amazed on how dynamically incredible the new Camaro car would be, GM jumped the gun and fired another surprise – a more powerful Camaro that is built to race on the track. GM is announcing the arrival of the new Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R and as its name indicates it is a racer with GT4 specifications.
The new Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R is actually the brand’s first turn-key racecar – a complete GT4 vehicle straight from the factory – built to comply with global sporting regulations. It is engineered by Pratt & Miller, the same outfit that built the Corvette C7.R and the Cadillac ATS-V.R. Chevrolet has also designated Pratt & Miller to be in charge of production of the new Camaro GT4.R.Read the entire article New Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R is the brand’s first turnkey GT4 racer
Just when you think that nothing could surprise you anymore when it comes to wild cars, a few more cars come along to astonish you. These versions seen at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show were built by either the carmakers themselves or by specialty tuners.
At this time of the year, we all expect to see the most stunning recreations of cars gathered at the Convention Palexpo, where the 2017 Geneva Motor Show is currently being held.
Carmakers and tuners have spent quite a good deal of time and effort to make these cars quite different from their original versions.Read the entire article The Wildest Modified Vehicles at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show
Chevrolet has long been known to set new standards in terms of performance every time it releases a new model. The brand has once again shown this to be true with the track-capable Camaro model, the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE.
Already recognized to be tuned for the tracks, the 1LE blueprint was not simply utilized by Chevrolet for this new model. In fact, prepare to be amazed with its new levels of performance and sophistication.
Aside from having been given aerodynamic technologies, it has been fitted with a suspension that is clearly based on racing. Those who want to take to an even higher level can opt to have the extreme track performance package which includes, among others, the exclusive Supercar 3R Eagle F1 summer-only tires from Goodyear.Read the entire article 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE has exceptional track capability
At the most-awaited 2017 Geneva Motor Show, General Motors paraded a striking and track-ready Chevy Camaro with some promising upgrades, combining Camaro’s legendary street performance and enhanced track capability.
The concept rocked the show with its head-turning satin green paint finishing, V8 engine under its hood and a stance sitting 30 mm (1.2 inches) closer to the road. The Camaro Track Concept also boasts of an expanded engine range, transmission and differential coolers as well as leverages an upgraded FE4 suspension which is lowered by 30 mm for superior cornering capability. The FE4 suspension made it even swifter when driving past corners at higher speeds.
The Geneva showcar’s electronic limited-slip differential supports extra stability. It also operates Brembo performance brakes – six –piston monoblock aluminum front calipers with performance brake pads and two-piece 14.6-inch x 1.3-inch (370 mm x 34 mm) vented and slotted Duralife rotors for superior stopping power.Read the entire article Chevy Camaro Track Concept presented at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show
How fast can a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 actually go? Considering the amount of power lurking underneath its line-laden bonnet, the 2017 Camaro ZL1 is capable of achieving a top speed that goes beyond 200 mph (322 km/h). But then, nothing is official unless Chevrolet exerts effort to prove how fast the Camaro ZL1 could go.
With nothing but top speed as the goal, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 took the challenge and proceeded to the High Speed Oval of Automotive Testing Papenburg GmbH in Germany. Keep in mind that this particular 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is nearly all stock – as the modifications made only involved the addition of mandatory safety equipment and data logging equipment.
Take note that even a stock Camaro ZL1 already features several special performance-enhancing parts -- balanced enough to reduce lift while not affecting drag. Chevrolet fitted the 2017 Camaro ZL1 with special aerodynamic elements like a stanchion rear spoiler that is considered to be capable of delivering a lift/drag ratio better than a blade-style rear spoiler. Moreover, the carmaker fitted the 2017 Camaro ZL1 with a patent-pending auxiliary transmission oil cooler cover that could lower front-end lift without affecting drag. Chevrolet also tuned the coupe’s front-to-rear aero balance to offer better high-speed stability.Read the entire article 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 confirmed to reach top speed of 198 mph
Fireball Performance Cars has been known to make the fastest sixth generation LT1 Camaros in the world. Once again it has managed to walk the talk as it hit a new record running the Thunder Valley Speedway located in Noble, Oklahoma. Fireball unleashed a customized 2017 Fireball 900 Camaro which went for 149 mph and reach a quarter of a mile in 9.006 seconds.
Clearly the question on everyone’s mind is how they managed to tweak a stock 455 hp Camaro SS into what may well be the fastest Camaro there is. The quick answer is that it was a combination of expert tuning, straight-forward modifications, and of course, skillful driving.
The company already has the Fireball 900, a Camaro SS with a 990 hp engine and paired to an automatic 8-speed transmission. This could already make a run in the mid-9s but it was obvious Fireball wanted to do more. Thus, the LT1 headers were supercharged and ported in order to enhance the flow. Though already powerful, this was not enough to set a new world record and it needed some extra modifications.Read the entire article 2017 Fireball 900 Camaro runs a quarter mile at Thunder Valley in 9 seconds
In 2013, Ultimate Auto (a car builder from Orlando Florida) modified a 1967 Chevy Camaro and had it showcased at the SEMA Show. Dubbed as the “Ultimate Sixty-Seven”, the high performance Camaro is now on eBay for the price of 299,000 USD. But before you start raising your eyebrows, let’s find out the story behind its current value.
To begin with, we think the asking price is fairly reasonable considering if the cost for customization was originally at 420,000 USD. Well, that’s what it said on eBay when the owner had the old Chevy commissioned years ago. Now if you add the “Goodguys Builder’s Choice” Award it won in 2015, no doubt, this Chev could be considered among the Florida-based auto tuner’s “ultimate” creations.
At first, the 1967 Chevy Camaro features Baer four-wheel disk brakes, Borla custom side exhaust and a 1969 Camaro inverted tail lights. To complete the striking exterior package, the builder has equipped this Chevy with bespoke hood, custom trunk lid, Vellano VKS wheels, a handmade carbon fiber roof and the special BASF Carizzma Ruthless red body paint.Read the entire article Ultimate Auto’s ’67 Camaro now on sale with show-stopping price of $299,000
It just keeps getting hotter. McLaren, Porsche and Ford Motors have heated up the GT4 racing runways. In no time, BMW and Mercedes-AMG will be joining in. Not to be left out of the game, Chevrolet has raised the temperature even higher with a new GT4 race car.
Pratt & Miller has reformulated the 6th generation Chevrolet Camaro to take on any dare --- whether it be with a Cayman or a Mustang on the loose. Simply put, the track-ready Chevy GT4.R is now suitable for a spin at the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and Pirelli World Challenge. These are just the top two GT racing championships in North America by the way. Apparently, there are many other GT4 racing series around the world just like the GT4 European Series, the British GT Championship, the Hankook 24Hour Series and the Nurburgring Endurance Series.
Going back to the subject, the new Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R is using the same engine platform as that of the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 28.R. Yes, it’s the same type of engine on a Chevy that won at the Continental Tire SportsCar event in 2015.Read the entire article Chevrolet gets ready to unleash the Camaro GT4.R race car for this year’s competition
Several years after it first came out on eBay, the “DreamRyder” convertible is back on the classified ads. But this time, it appears on “the world’s largest collector car marketplace” ---that’s the Hemmings to be exact.
In retrospect, this Camaro looks like a nice throwback to the 80s. It may not be as drop dead gorgeous as the Camaros we have today but it is a good reminder of Bill Logan’s lifelong dream.
So who’s Bill Logan? Well, he’s the guy behind this 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 creation. In case you don’t know, Logan spent thirteen years in customizing this Chevy into a dream machine.Read the entire article DreamRyder 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 for sale at $250K
Fine-tuned American muscle cars like Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang are pretty common in the US. Most likely, you will come across one supercharged Camaro when you’re out on the street. But in Europe? Probably not as much. Over the years, there have been no known car tuners that specialise in building car kits for a car like this. However, things are about to change after GeigerCars comes out with its own version of the 630hp Chevy Camaro.
There is no denying, GeigerCars is making a bold move by introducing a supercharged 630hp Chevrolet Camaro in Europe. The Germany-based conversion specialists equipped the Camaro SS 6.2L V8 LT1 with new ECU software, new oil cooler and a new supercharger. Geiger Cars, led by Karl Geiger has been in the tuning industry for years. The auto tuner from Germany has in fact, made special kits for Dodge and Ford‘s high performance cars before.
An exclusively available sport exhaust system can also go with the newly tuned Chevrolet. These enhancements allow the Camaro to deliver 630hp at 6,500rpm and 583 pound feet of torque at 4,700rpm. Overall, GeigerCars’ Chevrolet Camaro can go from 0-62mph in less than 3.9 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 190mph using its 8-speed auto transmission gear.Read the entire article Supercharged Chevrolet Camaro takes over Europe thanks to GeigerCars
Fireball recently unveiled their latest racing monster at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. As far as we can tell, this 990 hp Camaro can put the Roush Mustangs and Hellcats to shame. The creators of the Fireball Chevy surely know how to do their thing. They set the bar, win the game, break the records and guess what? They can even offer the first ever 990hp Camaro for as low as $100 per horse or $90,000. Not bad.
The Fireball 900’s racing powers come from its 990 hp at the flywheel. Obviously, the 900 on its billing does not necessarily imply its powerful output. Dubbed as the fastest track-capable and street legal Camaro, the 990 hp Fireball can also speed off more quickly than the previous Chevy muscle cars. True enough, nothing even comes close to this definitive challenger.
Earlier this year, Fireball made a record breaking 9.83 second run with its very own rendition of 6th generation Camaro SS. Talking about pushing things to the limits, the Fireball 900 boasts up to 485 more hp than the Camaro Z28 and 340 more hp than the ZL1.Read the entire article 2017 Fireball 900 Camaro is a badass muscle car, comes with 990 hp
Slammed vehicles, with their road-hugging stance, are usually not welcomed from the functional point of view. However, slammed vehicles are a sight to behold from the design point of view. Currently in Las Vegas, Nevada, Chevrolet is featuring a slammed version of its Gen 6 Camaro – the 2017 Camaro SS Slammer Concept.
Wrapped in Dazzling Black exterior, the 2017 Camaro SS Slammer concept at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (2016 SEMA Show) show dons a road-hugging stance, several exclusive custom elements and a number of expressive details.
The modified Camaro’s low and slammed stance is helped by the fact that it features an air-adjustable suspension and rides on custom 22-inch front and 24-inch rear chrome wheels wrapped in large 245/30R22 wheels in front and 275/25R24 in the rear.Read the entire article SEMA: 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS Slammer Concept combines classic and modern cues

Through continuous development and evolution, the Camaro has become one of the most beloved supercars in terms of dynamic performance on the road.
At the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Chevrolet has been showing off a Camaro Concept with primary focus on handing.

Power is sent to the wheels through a six-speed manual transmission with a concept short-throw shifter.Read the entire article Very agile Chevrolet Camaro Turbo AutoX Concept shown at 2016 SEMA Show
Camaro has been a staple of drag racing events for around 50 years, grabbing numerous wins in the process. Chevrolet is now furthering this winning legacy by unveiling its new Camaro SS Drag Race Development Program and the 2017 COPO Camaro show car at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Whoever said that golf carts are boring, four-wheeled slowpokes must have lived in the past. Cars now come in all shapes and sizes so it wouldn’t be surprising for automakers to venture to designs and markets to hit the sales charts. Recently, Chevrolet has ventured into the golf market with the creation of a new Camaro golf cart.
With the advent of electric vehicles, it’s not surprising to hear that automakers are slowly turning to a (close to) zero-emissions version of their current models and Chevrolet is one of them. Before we know it, Chevy might be paving its way towards a pure electric Camaro what with rumors spreading throughout the internet of a Corvette EV. It’s not too far-fetched to expect both.
Until then, we will have to endure the long wait and make do with what is at hand. Now, Chevrolet does not manufacture any pure electric Camaros but the guys from Caddyshack Gold Carts in California might have one – well, almost. Actually, Caddyshack is offering an officially licensed Camaro-styled golf cart complete with General Motor’s stamp of approval.Read the entire article Get your style on with this Chevrolet Camaro Fifty golf cart
