Wearing a familiar black, silver and red color scheme, Chevrolet Camaro SS/RC1 #3 is a custom built performance car with a 500 horsepower LS3 V8 that is the third of a limited production run from RCR.
The factory body panels are covered in showroom caliber GM gloss black and display excellent fit and finish. At the front of the car, an already menacing Camaro SS specific front bumper receives a carbon fiber front valence that would look right at home on a NASCAR stock car. Above that valence, HID headlamps with round halos sit at either side of a GM heritage grille and combine with factory fog lights in black factory surrounds to provide excellent illumination. Behind the grille, a custom hood with a carbon fiber hood scoop and mesh air intakes wears silver graphics that are outlined in red. At the side of the car, the clean black profile wears another silver and red graphic that traces the car's front and rear fenders. Below the door, carbon fiber side skirts match the ground to body ratio of the carbon fiber front valence and widen to line up with massive 10.5 inch wide rear tires. At the back of the car, a NASCAR inspired high profile carbon fiber rear spoiler sits above a blacked out marker lights. At the corners of the car, 20 inch custom machined wheels include RCR Street Performance center caps and wear 275/40/20 Pirelli P-Zero performance radials.
Raise the custom hood and you'll find GM's honed and perfected 6.2 liter LS3 V8 that creates 400 horsepower straight from the factory. The LS3 uses a cast aluminum block, high flow aluminum heads, a high flow intake manifold, an aggressive camshaft, offset intake rocker arms, upgraded electronic fuel injectors and coil near plug firing for a 10.7:1 compression ratio and virtually unmatched street car performance. The RC1 package adds an Airaid cold air intake with a reusable filter and a custom RCR engine tune to bump the power up to a nice, even 500 horses. The motor is dressed in a cool Camaro exclusive shroud that carries the same black and silver theme as the rest of the car and retains its OEM appearance.
Underneath the car, a factory Camaro SS Tremec 6060 6-speed manual transmission sends the horsepower to a factory Camaro SS limited slip rear end which has been upfitted with 3.73 gears. Built around that transmission and rear end is a Nurburgring tested Macpherson strut front and independent rear suspension that includes heavy duty stabilizer bars and Pfadt Performance 1.25 inch drop springs at all four corners. Variable ratio, speed sensitive power steering and Camaro SS specific Brembo four-wheel vented disc brakes aid in handling while GM's Stabilitrak traction and stability control system and a 6-speed Camaro SS exclusive launch control system attempt to keep a handle on all the added horsepower. At the rear of the car, a stainless cat back Billy Boat Performance Exhaust system looks cool and sounds awesome.
In the cockpit of this Camaro, a custom gray and black interior carries over the two toned theme of the exterior and shows no wear at all. At the top of the front seats, custom RCR Street Performance headrests are a natural fit. The heritage inspired dash houses a Driver Information Center between a square speedometer and square tachometer, and includes GM's acclaimed Heads Up Display which projects vital information onto the windshield. To the right of the driver, a Boston Acoustics premium audio system plays an AM/FM radio, a CD player, an MP3 player or XM satellite radio through 9 speakers. Below the dash, the console features factory optioned four pack gauges and a shifter with a leather wrapped shift knob. In front of the driver, the leather wrapped and silver stitched tilt and telescoping steering wheel includes buttons for the cars Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and redundant audio controls. At the floor board, billet pedals sit above custom RCR Street Performance floor mats that protect light gray carpet.
