When the all-new 5th generation Camaro hit the streets, it was a huge hit. Today, there are dozens of them at every car show, so how do you stand out? Well, showing up in this incredible 2010 Camaro SS with a 418 Stroker V8 and big honkin' supercharger at the helm might do the trick. Finished with a vivid blue paint job and a set of custom white stripes, a custom ram-air hood and ducktail spoiler, flashy 20-inch wheels, and plenty of attitude, there's exactly nothing subtle about this late-model F-body.
This Camaro isn't exactly subtle, but when you can run blistering quarter mile times at will, well, there's not much reason to keep a low profile. Actually, the mods are pretty low-key relatively speaking, and most folks on the street may not even see this as the threat it actually is. There's the custom white stripes that run the length of the body a shade of white borrowed from Aston Martin called Morning Frost White and the Blue Metallic finish on the rest of the car, the MPDI Z-Force ram-air hood, T3 front bumper ports, Heritage grill assembly installed to account for the supercharger under the hood, and the muscular rear end that features an MPDI rear wing and somewhat low-key rear diffuser, but by the time anyone really notices that stuff, it's already too late. With just 11,669 actual miles, this Camaro is still barely broken in and hasn't been abused, raced, or flogged, so the sheetmetal and paint looks about as close to factory fresh as you'll find on the secondary market. The searing blue paint is better than what you'd expect adorning a GM, befitting a much more expensive car, and the retro-inspired look is aging well, because this car still gets a lot of looks on the street. Add in those contrasting white stripes, oversized chrome surrounds for the exhaust pipes, and the hunkered-down stance on those killer custom rims, and you have one heck of an intimidating Camaro.
The interior is cool enough to be left pretty much as GM intended. The leather seats have SS script in the head rests, the flashy inserts in the door panels and dash match the exterior finish in drama, and all the clean components really make it look upscale and expensive inside. The gauges emulate the first-generation cars, with deep-set dials that light up the moment you turn the key, and auxiliary gauges are down on the center console, just like on your old '69. Seating surfaces look fresh and very lightly used save for some incredibly small comfort marks on the drivers' lower cushion. This car is also loaded with just about everything they could throw at it, from automatic climate control to power everything to a kicking stereo system. Obviously, with just 11k original miles, everything works like it should and remains in first-class condition. There's a powerful AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth stereo system with high-end speakers throughout the car, but we're guessing you'll prefer the sound of the supercharged monster under the hood much more. We'd be shocked if the rear seat has ever been sat in, and even the trunk remains as the factory made it.
But the big deal on this car is under the hood, where you'll find a brightly polished Vortech supercharger sitting on top of the vastly augmented 418 V8 LS engine. It's an insanely powerful motor build that was put together by the pros to output a whopping 900 horses and 634 ft.-lb. of torque, and it features a host of goodies including a GMPP LS3 conversion, forged pistons, Stage 3 heads, loads of ARP internals, an upgraded FAST fuel system, and an oversized stainless steel intake system that breathes via the race scoop above. An quite frankly, that's only a small fraction of the performance parts, give us a call to gather the rest. The blower makes full boost before you can get your foot on the floor, so acceleration is insane, yet thanks to careful computer tuning, it runs like a stocker and never gets fussy. That's some nice engineering. It's been presented for show in the engine bay, with that bright blower and contrasting black-and-white valve covers and blue FAST LSX manifold leading the way in the WOW factor. It's linked to a 6L80E Century automatic transmission that stays civil at every gear, making this the ultimate stomp-and-steer machine, with explosive acceleration at any speed, so be careful when you take it out on the street. A giant radiator keeps the whole show nice and cool, and long-tube headers feed into a custom KOOKS dual exhaust system that sounds spectacular, especially with those fat cans out back. The upgraded Pfadt suspension underneath attacks corners and spits them out with ease, and massive Brembo 4-wheel disc brakes stop all this muscle car violence on a dime. The 20-inch Savini wheels are the perfect complement to the bodywork, and they're wrapped in grippy 245/45/20 front and 315/35/20 rear Nitto performance radials.
An incredible performer with a look to match, this Camaro is th
