Hurst Performance is known for its highly collectible muscle cars, so when they come out with a package for a Camaro, we tend to shut up and listen. Earlier this year, they introduced the 2010 Chevy Camaro Series 5 by Hurst and now they have unveiled the special edition Redline Series Hurst Camaro. Enough with tuning V8s, this package takes the V6 engine out for a ride. The first model in this series is a RS V6 Camaro that features a unique combination of painted graphics and aerodynamic enhancements.
The Hurst Camaro gets an STS turbocharger mounted to the Hurst Modified exhaust system in the rear. As a result of turbocharging, there is a 50% gain in rear wheel HP and additional torque. Not only will this Camaro go faster, but it will also do it while delivering 30% better fuel economy than the stock Camaro SS with its 6.2 liter V8.
The package also includes a manual or an automatic Hurst HARD-Drive “Pistol Grip” Shifters transmission, Hurst/Detroit Speed coil-over suspension, sway bars, and special BFGoodrich Radial T/A Spec Redline Edition rubber. The exterior sees a new rear deck spoiler and five-spoke 18" Hurst T1 alloy wheels. The interior gets Hurst/Katzkin leather seating finished with contrast stitching and embroidered Hurst logos, a real metal sequentially numbered interior dash plaque, and logo-embroidered floor mats.
Press release after the jump.
For the first time in company history, Hurst Performance Vehicles is offering enthusiasts a turbocharged V6 powered Hurst branded muscle car with the introduction of the Redline Series Hurst Camaro. The company, long known for its highly collectible limited edition muscle cars, announced this new vehicle as part of a partnership with performance tire manufacturer BFGoodrich® Tires, highlighting its BFGoodrich Radial T/A® Spec Redline Edition tire in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Radial T/A line of tires.
The new Redline Series Hurst Camaro begins as an ordinary RS V6 from Chevrolet and is modified at the company’s Irvine headquarters transforming into a modern muscle car that performs as well as it looks.
For the exterior, the Redline Series Hurst Camaro wears a unique combination of painted graphics and aerodynamic enhancements. An exclusive Hurst AIR-SPEED™ rear deck spoiler and specially designed five-spoke 18” Hurst T1 alloy wheels are unique to Redline Series cars and help finish off the exterior performance modifications.
The centerpieces of this special edition vehicle are its significant horsepower and fuel economy gains courtesy of forced induction via an STS Turbo. The STS turbocharger is remote mounted in the rear of the car to the Hurst Modified exhaust system. As a result of turbocharging, there is a 50% gain in rear wheel horsepower and additional torque, all the while delivering 30% better fuel economy than the stock Camaro SS with its 6.2 liter V8.
The added power is channeled via either manual or an automatic Hurst HARD-Drive “Pistol Grip” Shifters and put to the ground through the Hurst/Detroit Speed coil-over suspension, sway bars and special BFGoodrich Radial T/A Spec Redline Edition rubber. An optional gauge package is available and includes boost and exhaust temperature gauges
Just as one would expect, the interior is the standard of cool with Hurst/Katzkin leather seating finished with contrast stitching and embroidered Hurst logos, a real metal sequentially numbered interior dash plaque and logo-embroidered floor mats.
Only 50 of these vehicles will be built by Hurst each year and each comes with a custom Hurst car cover, a signed Certificate of Authenticity and signatures in the trunk from the Hurst Team to complete the car’s provenance.
“This vehicle represents a dramatic leap forward in muscle car technology,” said Hurst President Nate Shelton. “For the first time ever, we’ve been able to create a car that can compete, and often times out perform, vehicles costing much more, while returning increased fuel economy.”
