With all the hoopla surrounding the new Camaro 1LE, let's look back at the original.
The story of the ZL1 Camaro, fitted with that rarest of the rare, all-aluminum 427 big-block V-8, is one that has often been told: How only 69 were made, how they exploited the GM option-ordering system, and how they've become the Camaro guy's ultimate Camaro.
Classic Car Overview
The name Calloway has become synonymous with bespoke, high-end and seriously fast Chevys, and this 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS by Callaway is no exception. Supercharged, lowered, and dressed to impress, its a limited edition Camaro built by one of the biggest and most respected names in the business. And youd better believe it works right! This bright orange Camaro is probably the opposite of subtle, with the screaming paint showcasing the muscular Camaro shape in a fantastic way. Although Callaway was famous for their body kits on Corvettes, this Camaro largely sticks to the factory recipe, although a custom hood with a window so you can see the supercharger and some Callaway badging ensure that nobody will mistake it for a garden-variety SS. It remains in exceptional condition, which youd expect with only 2587 miles on the odometer; this car is virtually new in every way. It was purchased and maintained as an investment and the superb condition showcases the care that its one and only owner has shown it. It has never been used as a daily driver, it has never been raced or abused, and it certainly hasnt seen rain, so this is as close as youre going to get to showroom fresh if you want one of these special Camaros. The interior was treated to a few custom upgrades, most notably the special orange leather inserts on the factory bucket seats. The high-grade seating surfaces are worlds better than GM production stuff and with custom Callaway embroidery on the headrests, it looks right. Callaway added the short-throw shifter for the 6-speed manual transmission, special sill plates with the Callaway logo, and a set of custom floor mats, but the rest remains factory Camaro stuff. That also means its loaded with fully operational upgrades, including ice cold A/C, power everything, and a kickin AM/FM/CD stereo system. The back seats were upholstered to match, a nice touch, and theres a sunroof overhead, a seldom-seen option in the Camaro. The trunk is large enough to be useful and includes a cargo net and a set of Callaway mats that have never been unwrapped. All thats nice, but you buy a Callaway for the performance and this Camaro doesnt disappoint. At its heart, theres a TVS2300 supercharger with a custom intake manifold and air-to-liquid intercooler system. It inhales through a Callaway Honker high flow intake system thats enclosed in a trick Plexiglas box that looks extremely trick. Carbon fiber coil covers dress up the engine bay and are another reminder that this is not a stock F-body. Custom calibrations ensure that it runs and drives like a stock, but when you drop the pedal this sucker launches with about 50% more horsepower than stock. Its extremely impressive. The 6-speed manual doesnt mind the added power and with Callaway upgrades to the suspension, exhaust, and rolling stock, the power can easily be put to use without any drama. The soundtrack is downright heroic but doesnt get annoying on the highway, another sign of Callaways attention to detail. Youll note that the undercarriage is pretty much as-new and even the massive 20-inch Pirelli tires on those custom wheels have plenty of tread left on them. Reeves Callaways reputation should speak for itself and you know this is a special Camaro. Anyone can own a late-model F-body, but only a handful of people own a Callaway. Call today!
