As late as a decade ago, you probably would’ve wondered if there was any way that a muscle car like the Chevrolet Camaro could ever get its pony power up to four digits.
But these days, it’s not a question of "if" anymore as it is "how much?"
Take what Nelson Super Cars did to this 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. It’s owned by one Bruce Hanson and at first glance, it doesn’t look all that different from a stock model, but things aren’t always as clear as they seem.
In order to accommodate that much power, Nelson Super Cars completely rebuilt the Camaro from the ground up, including the addition of a fiberglass hood, a roll cage, a safety net, and a slew of other safety features that’s likely required for a car carrying that much ponies under its hood.
Speaking of power, Nelson Super Cars fitted the Camaro with a modified engine of sorts: a 6.4-liter twin-turbo LS3 engine that produces 1,500 horsepower. The best part of all the work done on the Camaro? It’s street-legal.
Anytime you can get that much power from a muscle car like the Camaro and have it run on the road with no problems, you have to make sure that you’ve got your wits screwed on tight.
