Chevy has an awesome classic Camaro on display at SEMA 2015. The car is a 1970 Camaro RS that looks original on the outside and on the interior. Under the hood, the car is a complete transformation from ’70s technology to the modern technology found under the hood of the Corvette Z06. Chevy has crammed a 6.2L supercharged V8 under the hood of the car.
That V8 engine is rated for 650hp and 650 lb-ft of torque and is available in crate form with wet or dry sump options. This Camaro build uses the wet sump option and has air conditioning and front-end drive kits needed to make the engine work. That big V8 us backed by a T-56 Super Magnum 6-speed manual transmission.
Chevy also upgraded the chassis and suspension of the ’70 Camaro with independent front suspension with coilovers and rack and pinion steering. The rear suspension is a four-link unit with coilovers. Brakes are disc front and rear units designed as an upgrade for the Z06 Stingray Corvette. Chevy fitted the car with a 6-point roll cage and new gauges to work with the electronics in the new drive train.
