Tuners and hot rod shops have been souping up and modifying the Chevrolet Camaro since its rebirth in 2009. Back in the late 1960s and early 1970’s the Camaro was a pure road beast. Tuners would take factory showroom cars and modify them into full-on supercars. It’s now 44 years later and it seems as though nothing has changed as the guys from Baldwin Motion, one of the original super tuners, have now just released the specs for their new 2011 Camaro SS Phase III cars.
According to Joel Rosen, the legendary founder of Baldwin Motion,
“We have re-launched the Baldwin-Motion and MOTION brands again, this time capturing the true spirit of what we did in 1967-1974: Market built-to-order, dyno-proven and warranted SS & Phase III 427 & 454 Camaros, crafted by a high-tech dyno shop and available exclusively from a single authorized Chevrolet dealer.”
Available through DeNooyer Chevrolet in upstate New York, customers will have a choice of cars ranging from the SS-427 (dyno-rated at 525hp), or the 427-SC Supercar (dyno-rated at 800 horsepower). The 2011 Camaro SS Phase III cars will start at under $80,000 and go up from there. It should be interesting to see how things actually run, especially since Chevrolet is working on their own 550+ hp Camaro Z/28 that’s set to debut for the 2012 model year.
