Sareni United revealed today its newly designed Camaro GT, a brand new GT3 car that promises to make an impression on racing tracks all around the world. For those who don’t know, Sareni United is a company started by Hans Reiter (founder of Reiter Engineering, well-known for its Lamborghini race cars).
New Camaro GT is powered by a 7.9 litre eight-cylinder (V8) engine delivering 650 hp and up to 800 Nm of torque.
The engine is mated to a newly designed HOLINGER gearbox. This gearbox shift system with paddle shift on the steering wheel weighs only 37 kg. As expected, the power is delivered to the ground to the rear tyres.
The new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro pays tributes to the original model -- built from 1967 through 1969 – by sporting a similar design. Its classic proportions are defined with a length of 190.4 inches (4,836 mm), width of 75.5 inches (1,918 mm) and height of 54.2 inches (1,376 mm), with a wheelbase of 112.3 inches (2,852 mm).
Thanks to a long hood and short deck pushed to the corners of the muscular fender forms as well as to 67-degree rake windshield, the V-6 versions boasts of a 0.37 coefficient of drag (Cd) on V-6 models while the V-8-powered SS version comes with a 0.35 Cd – both exposing a superb aerodynamic performance.
Meanwhile, the Camaro’s wheel arch openings reveal 18-inch wheels (standard), or 19-inch or 20-inch wheels (optional), with a consistent relationship between the top of the tire and bottom of the fender on all models.
In addition, the new Camaro is provided with a classic "V" design motif in the nose and a 2.5-inch (63.5 mm) power dome in the aluminum hood. SS models feature a simulated air intake in the upper front fascia and a larger lower air intake. On the other hand, the top section of the new Camaro borrows a styling cue from Corvette to parade a more characteristic Chevrolet presence: the sculpted twin cockpits across the roof.
Since the B-pillar -- designed to provide greater structural rigidity -- seems invisible when viewed from the outside, the Camaro looks like a hardtop coupe. Chevrolet employed a one-piece body stamping to ensure quality during the manufacturing process, thereby resulting to a cleaner and neater side appearance free from gaps, seams and plastic appliqués.
Helping identify the new car as a true Camaro are the "gills" in the front of the rear quarter panel. Customers could choose from ten available exterior colors: Aqua Blue Metallic, Black, Cyber Gray Metallic, Imperial Blue Metallic, Inferno Orange Metallic, Rally Yellow, Red Jewel Tintcoat and Silver Ice Metallic, Victory Red and White.
LT and SS models of the Camaro could be availed with an RS appearance package that includes HID headlamps with integrated halo rings, specific taillamps, 20-inch wheels with a Midnight Silver finish and a rear spoiler on the Camaro LT.
