2010 HURST/Camaro Performance Series
We are more accustomed to hearing about the classic American tuners from Hurst Performance creating special edition Challengers and Mustangs, however they have teamed up with Chevrolet to auction off the very first preproduction HURST/Camaro on eBay prior to the 2009 SEMA show in order to fund the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Now the auction is already under way, and aside from this 445 HP stunning silver and black pony car, the highest bidder will also walk away with a very special SEMA experience prize package. The package includes two tickets to the show, a two night stay at the Las Vegas Hilton, $1000 worth of American Airlines flight vouchers to get you there and a pair of passes to the eBay party at the Bellagio while in Sin City. The winning bid will ensure that the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, a program that fosters industry leadership by supporting the education of students pursuing careers in the automotive aftermarket, continues on.
As if the trip of a lifetime to Las Vegas isn’t enticing enough, the HURST/Camaro comes complete with plenty of goodies of its own, like a set of 20 inch forged aluminum HURST T-2 wheels, a Hurst Competition Plus short throw pistol grip shifter and a Hurst AIRSPEED rear deck spoiler to complete the aerodynamic modifications. The modified muscle car rides on an aftermarket Eibach suspension to give the Camaro just the right stance, while a Magnaflow stainless steel performance exhaust gives the HURST/Camaro a much more aggressive bark to match the car’s bad boy livery.
Press release after the jump.
SEMA, in cooperation with General Motors and Hurst Performance Vehicles, announced today that it will auction the first pre-production HURST/Camaro prior to the 2009 SEMA Show. The proceeds are to benefit the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, a program that fosters industry leadership by supporting the education of students pursuing careers in the automotive aftermarket.
The car will be auctioned on eBay Motors during the two weeks prior to the show. “SEMA has a wonderful history of supporting our industry through scholarships made to deserving students,” said Scooter Brothers, Chairman of the SEMA Scholarship Committee. “The SEMA Scholarship Committee is delighted that Hurst Performance, along with GM, is making this generous donation with this one-of-a-kind HURST/Camaro. We look forward to a very successful auction culminating at the SEMA Show this November.”
“We are thrilled to be able to support the SEMA Scholarship Fund by contributing this very special Camaro,” said Bob Kern, General Motors SEMA Relations Manager. “GM is very committed to growing this industry and we are certainly dedicated to be part of a program that helps enrich the lives of so many young, aspiring automotive scholars.”
The very first HURST/Camaro is finished in Hurst’s best bad-boy colors; brilliant black with honestto- goodness real painted silver and red stripes. Hurst hardware could pass for art; especially the massive 20” polished forged aluminum HURST T-2 wheels, a Hurst Competition Plus short-throw shifter with a special red anodized HARD-DRIVE® billet pistol-grip shift handle and a Hurst AIRSPEED ® rear deck spoiler and real metal exterior badges. The Eibach suspension and Magnaflow stainless performance exhaust system deliver more attitude and performance to match the looks of this stellar performance machine. The interior has a personalized HURST/Camaro dash plaque and logo embroidered floor mats. Signatures from the Hurst Executive Team are under the trunk lid and documentation is provided to complete the car’s provenance and guarantee that it is truly one-of-akind.
“This is hands-down the coolest Hurst Camaro ever…in fact, it’s the first one!” said Hurst Performance CEO and 25 year SEMA Scholarship Committee member, Chris Phillips. “At Hurst Performance, we are committed making a difference with our cars and that includes helping young people get started in their careers in this industry. We are honored to join SEMA and GM in donating this car to this very worthy cause.”
Joining Hurst Performance as Sponsors are many of the industry’s most respected companies including Aria Design, BF Goodrich Tires, Magnaflow, K&N, Eibach, Acsco Products, Star West and CoverKing. Watch for the unveiling of the new 2010 HURST/Camaro Performance Series at the 2009 SEMA Show in November.
