The Chevrolet Camaro is maybe one of the sexiest models currently available on the market and it has been ever since it debuted in 1966. Despite its already-stout looks and performance, the folks at Magnat have optimized the Camaro in terms of its look, its sound, and its performance, and turned it into a sick show car.
We will start with the work made under the hood. Beneath the bonnet, the tuner installed a performance kit by the Wimmer Racing Engineering, remapped the ECU, and optimized the air induction. All these, along with the addition of a new stainless-steel exhaust system, pushed the total output up to 451 horsepower and 439 pound-feet of torque at 4,300 rpm. Since this is the automatic-transmission-equipped Camaro SS, which has a detuned 6.2-liter V-8 engine, the upgrades are good for a 51-horsepower and 29-pound-feet increase over the factory numbers. Top speed has been increased to 170 mph and we’re sure it’s significantly quicker to 60 mph than it was from the factory.
The car sits on a set of 22-inch wheels combined with Yokohama Advan Sport tires measuring 265/30ZR22 at the front and 295/25ZR22 at the rear axle.
On the inside, the tuner added high-quality leather and Alcantara, and an Audiovox VME 9520NAV audio system. It includes navigation, Bluetooth hands-free system, iPod and iPhone control, DVD, and steering-wheel-mounted controls. The audio system features a 2-way component front system, coaxial rear system, two 30 cm subwoofers and digital amplifiers that transform this Camaro into a rolling concert hall — a super-fast, rolling concert hall.
