This 1968 RS/SS black Camaro is far beyond impressive when it comes to the engine powering this beast; a GM crate motor high compression EFI 572 R cu inch rated at 720 hp coupled with 930 Nm of torque at 4500 RPM, two stages NITROS of 300/500hp, automatic 400 transmission 4500 stall converter with a trans brake, 9 inch Ford deferential and a set of 513 gears reaching more than 1200HP.
Zooming out for the engine bay, it is even more striking than the engine itself with carbon fiber plates all around, shiny chrome parts and gadgets guaranteed to blow your mind.
Moving beyond the beating heart of this monster, the body and interior are even more remarkable with a custom made hood scoop that tells you not to mess with this machine and giving you a true feeling of what’s under the hood, in addition to the rear wing, dual double exhaust tips, and white stripes.
If this doesn’t give you the feeling of a dragster, we are keen that the huge rear tires will say it all, as this Camaro comes equipped with an outrageous rear view that will leave you speechless while looking at the ET Street Pro drag slick tires of size 33×18.5×15 on lightweight SS deep dish alloys.
Inside the cockpit is a whole different story only Jet pilots will know what I’m talking about, fully enforced with Carbon Fiber plates, roll caging front and rear and set up with racing seats for ultimate safety, sitting inside a Camaro has never been so exciting.
Looking at the dashboard and panels, you will see custom-made instruments, gauges and buttons all around not to forget the racing gear stick.
All of this and more made an impression on the judges and visitors of the Lebanon Motorsport and Tuning Show 2015 and truly earned the title of “BEST AMERICAN RETRO MUSCLE CAR 2015”.
This 1968 Camaro is a true impersonation of the saying “seeing is believing”.
