For sale in our Chicago showroom is this stunning Inferno Orange Metallic 2011 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS/RS. The 6.2 liter aluminum V8 engine produces just over 400 horsepower... in factory form. This Camaro was originally a demo model for the first 6,600 miles or so, until it was purchased by the first titled owner. The modifications immediately began, and the power level just kept climbing. The project started innocent enough, with an exhaust system and an aftermarket camshaft to eliminate the finicky displacement on demand feature that is known to have lifters fail. Soon enough, the car was capable of running low 10-second times in the � mile legally at the strip. Air is pulled in through the Heritage badgeless grille, working its way into the intake tract before being stuffed through the 2.8L Mammoth Kenne Bell supercharger. It is force-fed through the worked-over cylinder heads, then back out through the Stainless Works long-tube headers into the Stainless Works exhaust making an incredible sound, and an estimated 600+ rwhp. While the factory 6L80E 6-speed automatic would have handled the power for a while, the decision was made to upgrade it to aftermarket 6L90E specifications with a PATC transmission upgrade kit to avoid any potential future issues. All of the work into that engine does no good if it can't get put to the ground effectively. As the old adage goes "Spinnin' ain't winnin'." One of the first sets of PFADT Stage 1 Drag Racing Kit was installed to help eliminate wheel hop and stop the control arms from twisting, allowing for a more effective and safer launch. A set of Weld rims wrapped in sticky Mickey Thomson tires really brings the 60' times down, and the aftermarket chassis stiffeners keep the body from twisting itself into a pretzel. Pop the trunk and see the custom ice tank/fuel cell combo and Optima red top battery. Stepping inside the cabin and nestle yourself in the Corbeau seats with Recaro 5-point harnesses and you will already feel the adrenaline pumping. The Roll cage will keep you safe from any potential mishaps, either on the road or on the racetrack. This modern-muscle has had a full race treatment, but was designed to maintain its streetability as much as possible. Options include: Air-Conditioning (available, but not installed), AM/FM/CD Player. Cruise Control, GPS, Power Brakes, PowerSteering, Power Locks, Power Sunroof, Power Windows, Anti-Lock Brakes, Tilt/Telescopic Steering Wheel, Traction Control, Keyless Entry, Seat Belts, Drivers/Passengers Airbag, Anti-Theft System, Cloth Interior, and Racing Wheels.
