American tuner, Baldwin Motion, has announced one of the most impressive tuning upgrades for the new Chevrolet Camaro SS we have seen. It is appropriately called "Fantastic Five" and consists of five different upgrade levels with power ranging from 525 to 800 HP.

The Fantastic Five include engine updates that range from 525 HP to a monstrous 800 HP. Aesthetic modifications were also made to differentiate the line from standard Camaros, but they don’t include anything to write home about.

Aside from the amazing engine updates provided for the muscle car, MOTION also went to a great deal to ensure that the project’s specifications are fully customizable and private. Each vehicle will be built based on the customer’s wishes and will be sanctioned, serialized, and signed by Joel Rosen, creator of the Baldwin-Motion 427 & 454 Camaros and the owner of the MOTION Camaro Phase III 427-SC that was showcased at the Super Chevy Show at the Palm Beach Florida International Raceway.

Exterior and Interior

For every muscle car that receives an enormous power upgrade with many options to choose from, there is a milder exterior package that gets installed to help set the tuned up version apart from the standard model. In the Camaro by Baldwin Motion’s case, it has been donned with a green exterior paint job and some gold painted striping for added effect. The muscle car also gets an aggressive front fascia with air intake inlets, a new rear spoiler, perforated seat inserts, and a new set of wheels.

Fans of the Chevrolet Camaro will have plenty of options to choose from in terms of power, with five different choices to match each individual’s personality. The base version is called the SS-427 and includes a power boost up to 525 HP, up from the standard 426 HP. Not only do you get a 99 HP bump in power, but the SS-427 package also comes with a new exhaust system, race prepared aluminum intakes, a titanium intake, and cast aluminum pistons. Take it one step further and you have the Phase III 427 with 600 HP of upgrade goodness. This package is pretty much just like the SS-427 version, but with a custom Redline R3 camshaft and an American Racing high-efficiency tubular exhaust system.

The next package is called the SS-454 and includes an impressive 550 HP upgrade. This package includes forged aluminum pistons, a forged steel crankshaft, aluminum LS7 cylinder heads, and a Corvette Z06 LS7 intake manifold. That package is followed up with the Phase III 454, which is the next step up from the SS-454 and delivers a total of 626 HP. It features all of the same components then adds race-prepped CNC-ported LS7 Aluminum heads and a high-capacity air intake system.

The top version, Phase 427-SC, is the most powerful in the line-up and boasts of a whopping 800 HP. That kind of power needs a few more accessories than your average conversion, so Baldwin Motion has added a 2.8-Liter Twin-Screw supercharger system, forged pistons, a new exhaust system, a high-capacity air intake system, a custom calibrated engine management system, and a high-capacity fuel system.

The 2011 MOTION Camaro Phase III 427-SC was showcased at the Super Chevy Show at the Palm Beach Florida International Raceway on April 8, 2011 and was purchased for $ 150,000. Only a undisclosed limited number of models will be built for this phase, so anyone interested will have to pay that price for this ride. Phase One starts off at $80,000.

Confidential MOTION Registry

MOTION states that since they understand everything about muscle car collector cars, they ensured that ultimate privacy is attained with each car built. Each vehicle will be built to order at Redline and tuned by Howard Tanner on his DYNOmite 1,400 horsepower Eddy Current Load dyno. Official Baldwin-Motion documentation, including custom MOTION VIN plates and a full dyno report will be in the car upon delivery. Each Camaro by Motion will also be sanctioned, serialized, and signed by Joel Rosen.

MOTION will also be setting up a confidential MOTION Registry detailing VINs, vehicle specifications and original purchaser data on the web. The confidentiality will ensure that replicas will not be made of these exclusive packages.

It looks cool on its green body paint. However, I noticed that it looks too huge to be a Camaro sports car, and I think they should use a more powerful engine than on what they use now.

Wow! It seems that Baldwin Motion makes a great upgrade on the performance of this car. For a muscle car, I find the 600 hp kind of impressive! This performance kit is quite awesome, I can’t wait to have one of this.

hmm. It seems that muscle car nowadays has been so powerful and the boost power is amazing for this type of car! I’m starting to like American Musclesmiley

I like the green paint job of this car. It makes me want to shout "Lets go Green"! Plus the upgrade of this car its simply amazing!

This one actually looks cool even though it is not yet completed. I would say that this is one of the finest works done by Baldwin Motion in the last few months.

Wow, this one actually looks much better in green than in red. And those performance upgrades are definitely amazing, with all the output that they have put into the car.

Actually, as far as I know, Baldwin Motors do offer a variety of color schemes for this one. And they also have many options for the graphics, which means you will be able to customize the car’s look to your taste.

I hope this one comes in black, that would certainly make it look even cooler. And the color would certainly match the performance of the car.

Nice car body. But what I really love is the engine upgrades that they have put int this one. Those are certainly staggering numbers that they have.

A red body and white racing stripes certainly makes this Camaro stand out. The front bumper is also a nice touch on this one, made it look more aggressive.

These upgrades always are a bit higher on the normal standards. I wonder other than on the racing track, will these high performance vehicles be used on the roads? Or is it like those thousands of applications and features provided by Smart phones which are seldom used by the users.

Wow! I think this is the coolest Camaro that I have ever seen. Those wheel adds up on the aggressiveness of the car. Its kinda edgy but in the good way. However, I have to comment a little on its front, I think it needed a facelift.

  (797) posted on 03.29.2011

Phase 427-SC is probably the craziest upgrade that I have seen. Imagine that, an engine output of more than 800 hp. Wonder how you could use that.

  (592) posted on 03.29.2011

Wow! Five different levels of upgrades, now that certainly a first. And the exterior work done here is certainly good enough to match the ones done under the hood.
