The Chevrolet Camaro SS - Mustang-lovers shield your eyes - isn’t exactly a car that needs much done for it to look and perform like a real muscle car, but when a tuner takes this vehicle and goes the extra mile then appreciation should definitely ensue. German tuner, Irmscher, may be one of those tuners as they have revealed a tuning package for the Camaro SS that not only updates the car’s look, but also makes some changes to the muscle car’s engine.
From the factory, a Camaro SS is powered by an LS3 engine that delivers 422 HP and 408 lb.-ft. of torque, but after a few tweaks, Irmscher has managed to obtain a total of 509 HP. With this new update, the Camaro SS can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4 seconds and hit a top speed of 275 Km/h (170 mph).
In order to handle the new power, the car also gets larger brake discs (380mm front / 355 mm rear) with 6 piston/4 piston calipers and a height adjustable suspension.
For the exterior, the Camaro SS gets a new door, hood, and roof decals, as well a new 22" black alloys and a new exhaust system
For comparison’s sake, let’s take a look at another Camaro SS that received a different kind of tuning treatment. The Camaro SS LS9 by Lingenfelter is anything but tame with its GM LS9 Eaton TVS2300 supercharged engine producing a massive 1,234 HP. Now you would think that the Lingenfelter package would be astronomically priced, but it sells for a total of $41,316. If that sounds expensive then you should know that the weaker package of the two, the Irmscher kit, is priced at 49,000 Euro, or $65,000 at the current rates. Doesn’t make much sense, does it?
