The first official images of the 2010 SMS Camaro will be introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, according to Steve Saleen's SMS Supercars. The market launch is scheduled for the second quarter of 2010.
In a press release, Steve Saleen, President and CEO of SMS Supercars, said that the SMS 620 Camaro will be the only Camaro authorized to incorporate innovations derived from more than 30 years of racing and manufacturing experience.
Saleen added that the company is excited to add the SMS 620 Camaro to its line of SMS Signature Series cars, which includes the SMS 570 Challenger and SMS 460 Mustang.
For its interior, the third and latest contraption from SMS Supercars includes high performance gauges and all-new Alcantara and leather SMS performance seats that feature the patented Signature Series chevron stripes.
Chief Creative Officer of SMS, Phil Frank, said that the company has incorporated its well-known functional SMS Red Butterfly Dual Side Induction Hood as well as its race-proven aerodynamics in this third vehicle in its SMS Signature Series.
Frank added that the SMS 620 Camaro is a dramatic and iconic visual statement that very clearly bears the SMS design DNA. Powering the 2010 SMS Camaro is a 6.2l V8 engine that enables the car to output 575 hp and 600 ft-lb of torque, while the 620X version will deliver 715 hp and 700 ft-lb of torque.
Both versions will use the patent pending SMS 296 Supercharger, while transmission options include a 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual.
The SMS 620 Camaro is able to accelerate to 60mph in under 4.3 seconds, while the 620X version is able to accomplish it in nearly 4.0 seconds. The 620X version will also feature options such as Magneto-Rheological Semi-Active Dampers and Torvec Isotorque Differential and 21-inch rear wheels.
