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
Starting with the already desirable 2011 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Coupe, this is the 2011 Martin Technologies SS. The heart of the matter is the LS3 6.2L V8 with a ProCharger supercharger and Air-to-Air High Performance Intercooler. The ProCharger is a track-proven power adder, and Martin Technologies takes adding the supercharger seriously. More than a simple installation, the Martin Performance Enhancement Supercharged Engine includes supercharger enhancements and fuel optimization, plus an optimized high-performance fuel system with optimized engine calibration. This means the engine is professionally calibrated, tuned and completely turn-key. It is then dynamometer and road tested to verify the results. Youll feel those results as soon as you let out the heavy duty clutch. A launch control provides the needed assistance to handle 600 horsepower. 590 lb/ft of torque bears witness to the fact that the motor wasnt tweaked just to get a big horsepower number. The highly respected Tremec TR6060 6-speed manual transmission teams with a 3.45 geared limited slip differential for a nicely balanced drivetrain. The Martin Technologies SS package concentrates on hardware and value, and that philosophy carries over to the chassis, the exterior, and the interior. Tested at Nurburgring, Martin springs and roll bars help this Camaro pull nearly 1 g in the corners. Brembo brakes with vented rotors are integrated with the factory ABS and Electronic Brake Distribution to ensure confident control along with speed sensitive, variable ratio power steering. Handsome black leather seats with blue seating areas highlight the Martin Luxury Leather Sport Interior, which is unique yet elegantly restrained. This example has the optional custom trunk mat with the Martin logo beautifully embroidered into it. And while the Martin high-flow tuned exhaust system makes beautiful music, there is also a Boston Acoustics sound system with 9 speakers on board. This is a comfortable ride. The car is fully equipped including air conditioning with air filtration and all power accessories including the optional sunroof. A rich Imperial Blue adorns the pristine body with only the Martin badges to hint at the exclusivity of the car. Even the spoiler is the original factory unit. You may notice, however, that Martins 22-inch wheel and tire upgrade was ordered, featuring chrome Boss Motorsports 337s wrapped with 265/35R22 Hankook Ventus ST tires. Coming from an OEM engineering background, Harold Martin brought his innovative ideas and boundless energy to drag racing. He became known as the EFI Wizard and was awarded 15 world patents. Martin Technologies advanced engineering team planted its roots in motorsports and the company has evolved into a full-spectrum transportation, aerospace, and defense industry solutions provider. The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Martin Technologies SS is a product of passion and knowledge that shows in every detail. DISCLAIMER MAXmotive specializes in collectible classic and custom vehicles.
