  • "Turbo" Chevrolet Camaro is a 700-HP fantasy car come to life



    For a concept car built to promote an animated movie about a snail that wants to go racing, this thing ain't half bad. The outsized monster you see before you started life as a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and then went through a big-time Hollywood makeover before being positioned on the Chevrolet stand here in Chicago.

    This 2013 "Turbo" Camaro Coupe is getting the promotion machine ratcheted up for a new DreamWorks tale by the name of, you guessed it, Turbo. Coming this summer, the movie will follow one snail's quest to become a race driver worthy of making the cut at the Indy 500. Like many DreamWorks vehicles before it, we're guessing that the petrolhead snail will star in a movie that adults (especially racing fans) with have no trouble watching with their kids. Check out the trailer below to see if you agree.

    As for the car, we're told that it is "instrumental" in transforming Turbo from snail into racer. Helping the beastly pony car in this mighty task, is an ankle-cracking front splitter matched by a ungodly huge rear wing out back, a COPO hood and a supercharged (yes, supercharged) V8 engine making more than 700 horsepower. 24-inch wheels all the way around - 10-inches wide in front and 15-inches wide in back - should allow the "Turbo" Camaro to hook up with ease, as well.

    Read on below for the full press release and to watch the trailer, and be sure to grab a closer look at this awesome show car in our live gallery of images.Continue reading "Turbo" Chevrolet Camaro is a 700-HP fantasy car come to life [w/video]

    Went to a muffler shop yesterday, comes highly recommended on Google/Yelp. Guy said $400 for a Magnaflow installed.

    Does that sound right?

    If I could by stripped out one for 20-22k, I would do a 4cyl as a daily driver.

    So it's an inline 4 cyl. I missed that.

    It's gear towards the young kids. Something to introduce the brand to them.
