The Chevrolet Camaro is a muscle car that should have nothing to do with gull-wing doors. That kind of stuff is for sports cars right? Apparently not. The tuner LSD is offering you the chance to customize your Camaro SS with a cool set of gull-wing doors. That if is, of course, if you are interested! The price for the set is 1599 Euro.

It’s probably a little scary to think about putting a set of these doors on the Camaro, but, don’t worry, the doors were tested by the Federal German Transport Authority who confirmed in a side crash-test that the LSD-doors were as safe as any serially fitted door.

The LSD plates are fitted to the original door attachment points of the dismantled original plates. After the assembly the otherwise unchanged original door opens outwards first and then is securely guided and damped upwards. Adjustable plates stop doors from opening too far or from falling inwards or downwards when opened. And it also only takes one grip to close the doors.

Press release after the jump.

With gull-wing door plates by LSD, the Chevrolet Camaro SS becomes a real head-turner. Now LSD offers the hinges either as a complete set for both doors for only 1599 Euro including VAT or for each door individually. This lowers the entry price to 749 Euro and the driver has all eyes on him when he opens the doors.

The plates are equipped with the new GRS+ (Guided Roller System). It offers an adjustment possibility with the roller guidance of the roller bearing integrated in the hinges and additional stability through a catch which that locks in fully-opened condition. This results in more safety and more precise opening and closing of the door.

LSD plates are delivered with a part certificate by the German Technical Control Board which ensures that the LSD gull-wing doors fulfil all security standards.

Compared to other retrofit-sets for gull-wing doors, the LSD plates “made in Germany“ impress with a fully developed technology and the highest-possible quality standard. Moreover, a test laboratory accredited by the Federal German Transport Authority confirmed in a side crash-test that the LSD-solution which is patented in Germany is as safe as any serially fitted door. That means that passenger safety in a side crash is guaranteed according to guideline 96/27/EG by the LSD hinge system. LSD enables an easy and quick assembly without welding or painting works and impresses by its perfect fitting accuracy due to its three-dimensional adjustment.

The LSD plates are fitted to the original door attachment points of the dismantled original plates. After the assembly, the otherwise unchanged original door first opens outwards and then securely guided and damped upwards. Adjustable plates stop doors from opening too far or from falling inwards or downwards when opened. And also, it only takes one grip to close the doors. The LSD gull-wing doors render a sensational look to any car and are the ideal solution of fans of extraordinary tuning- and show cars. The LSD door plates can be obtained directly from LSD or from a specialist dealer.

It would be better if the custom gull wing is smaller, I think this special edition is just a rip off of everything. I am not satisfied on it current looks. Sorry. Maybe you have other opinions, please I wanted to know your reactions on this thread. Thanks.

The Camaro doesn’t even interest me slightly - I’d never buy one. I own a Chrysler 300 and I am not even excited about the Challenger. Its something about the look of the car that doesn’t excite me. Perhaps its because I’m 30 and most people who’d want these cars couldn’t get them back during the 70’s/80’s.

Practicality takes a backseat to performance and style when it comes to muscle cars though. Either way A two-door isn’t going to be practical if you have a family, especially if you need to put a baby seat back there.

hmm i think it will gain more weight because of the hinges and reiforced doors, unless they used a carbon or aluminum on it.

LSD door plates can be ordered directly from a LSD dealership or at LSD-Doors.com.

For sure they will include this as a special edition..but I think a regular camaro ss with custom gull wing is more cheaper than the OTB Camaro SS special edition.

In the terms of mounting, the LSD plates are placed on the original door attachment points of the dismantled original plates. When the assembly process is over, the otherwise unchanged original door first opens outwards and then securely guided and damped upwards.
