How about an ultra-clean 2014 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS/RS 1LE Supercharged with just 25k miles on the clock? How about loaded with options, a great color combination, and a look that still draws stares everywhere it goes? And how about the performance of an asphalt-pounding, built-up 6.2L liter V8 LS3 married to a quick-shifting 6-speed manual that makes this a car that's a blast to drive? This muscle car Camaro is loaded to the gills with it all - style, power, performance, and a particular je ne sais quoi that only modern Supercharged American sports cars can possess.
The color is called Summit White, and it's the kind of color that people will stop you on the street to ask what it is called. It's simply gorgeous, punctuated further by the contrast of the black accents scattered about the exterior. The 2SS/RS package is the best of both worlds for this V8 Camaro, with aggressive curb appeal that makes it look like it's breaking the speed limit even when it's parked. They did a great job revising the retro-looking F-body for these 5th generation line, and it keeps its chiseled good looks without looking dated. Really, could you have guessed that this slick design is 8 years old? Add in killer styling cues like the revised front fascia and aggressive lower grille up front, the chin spoiler, beefy hood with the big scoop, and the blacked-out rear spoiler and lower panel out back, and there's just no question what kind of car this is. Obviously with so few miles on the clock, it looks superclean in just about every way, with perhaps one or two tiny nicks as evidence that it's been driven, but it's quite clear that someone really cherished this car. Furthermore, a clear 'bra' was added to all the potential rock-chip vulnerable areas on the lower portion of the car, so it should maintain its dialed-in presentation for years to come. The RS package gives the car upgraded HID and LED lamps fore and aft, not to mention the dual exhaust tip set-up that pokes out in the back. Other than the 'SS' badges at the bookends, there's not a ton of advertising that goes with the car, certainly nothing that gives away the organized violence of the supercharger under the hood. That's exactly how we like it though, and provides the prime opportunity to shame any pesky Mustangs that foolishly want a taste of GM excellence at the red light.
The interior was likewise redesigned and upgraded for more power and speed in this generation of Camaros, starting with deeply bolstered leather bucket seats with suede inserts that grab you like Velcro. SS embroidery makes this one really stand out, just in case nobody noticed the bodywork, the badges, or the exhaust note, and there's a seriously beefy leather-wrapped steering wheel with proper thumb notches at 10 and 2. Pronounced white stitching throughout the upholstery (including the dash) lends it a racy look, too, and you'll note there are throwback design cues everywhere, including auxiliary gauges down on the center console. Of course, it's still plenty comfortable to drive and everything was standard on Chevy's top-of-the-line F-body, including A/C, cruise control, power windows, locks, seats, and mirrors, and a pretty impressive premium audio system with touch screen and navigation just to name a few. No, you won't feel like this is some bare-bones race car, it's loaded like a Lexus. There's a reasonable back seat and even the trunk offers proper storage for those longer Power Tours.
At its heart is a 6.2 liter supercharged LS3 V8, which is descended from the famous LS1. Virtually bulletproof and designed to lap the track for hours on end, it's seriously over-built in all the right ways. HPP Racing did the work, and with the addition of the big supercharger, American Racing headers, and cackling dual exhaust, it registered 565HP and 527 lb-ft of torque on a recent Dyno test. Nail the loud pedal at any speed and the LS3 V8 lunges forward like it's hungry, with a soft supercharger whine coming from up front and a baritone bellow from the oversized pipes out back. The only transmission you want with this kind of power is a 6-speed manual and the car will pull well over 100 MPH with two-three gears to spare (depending on how long you can withstand the redline), which should give you some idea of just how fast this insane Camaro really is. The SS 1LE Performance Package includes a suspension and handling package that was designed with the track in mind, so you get a fully independent setup fore and aft with a lowered ride height, stiffer springs and shocks, and an added shock-tower brace in the engine bay that helps stiffen the car in the corners. Massive Brembo 4-wheel disc brakes are part of the package, which provide fade-free performance lap after lap, and the blacked-out 20-inch aluminum wheels wear giant 275/40/20 Pirelli P-Zero rubbers that stick to the asphalt.
A ton of bang for the buck, a reasona
