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
This 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS/RS has been given a ton of upgrade to be a true Bumblebee tribute. And while youre enjoying custom details like the electric paint and awesome leather interior, dont forget that there is a 400 horsepower superhero within the engine bay. This Camaro was ordered by a true enthusiast. Theres a custom hood plaque commemorating it was part of the part of the early orders (March 2008) and delivered in May 2009. And so its one of the first 5,000 cars when the Camaro name was resurrected for the fifth generation. That makes it quite special even before you start to look at the full upgraded package. To be a true Bumblebee, this needs to stand out above the crowd. Thats why it has been given House of Kolor Sunrise Gold with an outstanding pearl coat on top to make this one radiate every time the sunshine finds the sheetmetal. And speaking of the body panels, they have the straightness that tells you this Camaro has lived a well-respaced life so far. This coupe has a terrific dark side with a blacked-out front, blackout taillights, and the iconic dual stripes on top of the yellow. Plus, this reminds everyone that its a Bumblebee with Transformer badging on 20-inch alloys, the sides, and the Chevy bow ties front and rear. Chevrolet didnt offer a yellow trim package when they re-debuted the Camaro name for 2010, and so one had to be created for this custom machine. Those yellow and black seats are a unique creation finished in a supple leather. The two-tone continues to intertwine on the door panels and dash to deliver a terrific look. And youll love the detail work, like the Transformers logo in the headrest, horn cap, and the special light up one in the cup holder. Beyond the custom details, you also have a loaded machine. This means a comfortable coupe with power windows, power sunroof, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, cruise control, and ice-cold air conditioning. The stereo is a premium AM/FM/CD unit with connections for satellite radio and Bluetooth, and theres an upgraded subwoofer speaker system. The retro part of this car comes into play with cool throwback features like the deeply recessed speedo and tach directly in front of you, and the auxiliary gauge quad-pack built into the center console. But while it looks retro, this also got the latest in safety, so you have anti-lock brakes, front air bags, and side airbags. Theres even a backup camera and a head-up display. While this car has been custom built to be a superhero, one of the reasons it truly lives up to its superior status is what Chevy used for the Camaros comeback. The fuel-injected 6.2-liter L99 V8 under the hood is the numbers-matching motor, and it looks fantastic in the engine bay. The bold yellow details and polished components remind you that the whole car is ready to show off. And the cold air intake adds even more power to the already impressive 400 hp rating from the factory. This combines with a six-speed automatic transmission, so it has the ability to be everything from a true tire-burning Camaro, to a sensible overdrive cruiser. And dont forget, this is the first Camaro with a fully independent suspension. So we know you wont be able to resist adding miles to this cool custom. Plus, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and modern performance tires means this is a total package that will feel great on any road. The sale comes complete with the original window sticker, owners manual, and build receipts. This is a very cool Bumblebee that has been given all the right investments to get plenty of attention.
