They used to be considered a secret tip: powerful Muscle-Cars from the USA, driven by high-performance V8-engines with more than 400 HP at insanely low prices.

The processing quality has improved, chassis technology has turned more modern and even the high-performance engines are much more drivable than they used to be.

Our team spotted an interesting find for sale on Craiglist, Sacramento – custom made 2012 Chevrolet Camaro SS. What is also interesting is that this Chevy is estimated at $ 50000 USD.
The car looks quite good, although some of the enhancements in our opinion are too much. Let’s review why. Maybe the car is good enough for muscle-car shows, because its optical tuning makes it look like a vehicle used in superhero-movies.
The original ZL1 Camaro is one of the most coveted cars ever produced by General Motors. Its fire breathing aluminum 427 is truly the stuff of hot rodding legend. When Chevrolet announced that they would build a modernized version of that famed F-body on their new Zeta platform, enthusiasts across the nation immediately began spec’ing out their hopes for the car. By the time SEMA 2011 rolled around in November, it was clear that most major shops in North America had also spent the year dreaming and creating their own visions of what the hot new Camaro should be. While there was no shortage of F-bodies at SEMA that year, none took performance as seriously as this 2011 Camaro SS.
Built by Source Interlink Media, who you may know better as the parent company of magazines like Super Chevy, Hot Rod, Automobile and Motor Trend, plenty of BIG names were called in to help out. The list includes GM Performance Division, Thomson Automotive and Pedders Suspension just to name a few. After its SEMA debut, the car was taken to Lingenfelter Performance Engineering for a full shake down. The end result is a brand new Camaro packing over 800 fully streetable horsepower. There are few fifth generation Camaros that could touch this car in a quarter mile and absolutely zero with this kind of provenance. If you’ve been eyeing a new Camaro as an investment, they simply don’t get better than this. Click on Read more!
