When it comes to cars, the 1970 custom Camaro is a certified stunner. It sure made heads turn during the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. In fact, we ourselves had to do a double take. We couldn’t believe our eyes then and we still couldn’t now. This big chunk of metal is not your typical mean machine. It’s a rare blue diamond.
We’ve all seen a Camaro from the seventies so what separates this vehicle from the rest? What’s so special about it?
Chevrolet, the automobile division of the American manufacturer General Motors, made waves when it presented the perfect blend of technology with a classic twist in the form of the Custom 1970 Camaro at the SEMA Show. The SEMA auto show, which stands for Specialty Equipment Market Association, is a trade-only event attended by qualified individuals from the automotive industry known for its grand displays, educational seminars, product demonstrations, special events and networking opportunities.
With its hyper blue metallic exterior and white rally stripes, it sure is a show stopper. The 2 door coupe muscle car with a maximum speed of 155 mph held steadfast its classic and timeless appeal but has been upgraded with an LT4 crate engine and a T-56 Super Magnum six-speed manual gearbox. It boasts of an astounding 650 horsepower and a 650 pound-feet of torque. With the additional power, the 6.2 liter supercharged V8 has been given titanium intake valves, aluminum cylinder heads and forged aluminum pistons. Furthermore, manufacturers added in a Corvette Z06-based disc brake installation, a six-point roll cage and custom gauges for maximum safety.
The vehicle’s chassis has been revised to perfection with suspension coil-overs installed at all four corners and a four-link setup upgrade. The head and taillights featured LED lighting and 19-inch wheels were brought in.
Inside, it comes with custom-trimmed seats that are reminiscent of a Gen3 Camaro. The custom leather wrapped instrumental panel features new gauges to monitor engine performance and works perfectly with the electronic systems.
Jim Campbell, Chevrolet USA’s VP of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports, said in an official statement that the brand aims to endlessly fuel the dreams of enthusiasts with endless possibilities be it in a classic resto-mod concept Camaro, a vintage truck or street rod. Without further explanation, the company obviously achieved such feat with the brilliance of its hyper blue metallic Custom 1970 Camaro. With this astounding muscle car, we say bring it on Chevy!
