TheChevrolet 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?

Scion, Kia, and now GM (and others that don’t immediately pop into mind right now) apparently have come to the conclusion that these offerings make money, so I guess I can see why they would do it from a business standpoint. Minimum investment for premium price.

I personally think limited editions are pointless unless it offers something more than a few dress up bits, but to each their own. For this price, I would rather move up to the 2LT package and get the leather seats instead.

I realize they want the pace cars to look flashy, but how come they end up looking a little desperate for attention, like the 1998 Corvette pace car?

As we mentioned before, no changes were brought to the engine of the vehicle, but the engine lineup for the Dodge Challenger should be sufficient for just about any driver.

Ok, first off, what’s with i42, plain stupid name that doesn’t relate to anything in the car, and btw Irmscher the Camaro started in ’67... just a little fact.

The model debuted at the Essen Motor Show a few weeks ago and has a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 under the hood producing 509bhp.

$65.000 for a car of this magnitude is a bargain! (if you’re in the market for this kind of car)

This is a proof that the shape and aerodynamics fall short when you have proper engine. I mean this looks more like a sedan than a sport car and yet it is capable of some great performance.

In about 5 years those polluting engines will make these cars museum pieces or the property of some real rick people who can afford to pay few times the price of the car on the eco-taxes smiley
