Dream car of the week: Chevrolet Camaro SS Supercharged V8

Every week we bring you a dream car – you know, the one you’d buy if you won the lottery.

THE CHEVROLET CAMARO SS Supercharged is as fun to say as it is to drive. It is pure Americana; the USA on wheels, if you will. Its styling is as loud and brash as the noise that roars out from that V8. This car has attitude with the power to back it up.

This two door coupe Camaro is in rubber-melting Super Sport guise with a gnarly looking supercharger dominating the hood. Around the back the tail light bezels feature a triple-lens styling and there is a chrome trim along the side panels and wheel arches. It rolls on 15-inch American Racing chrome five-spoke alloys.

This car has gone through loads of modifications and the engine has been built out of a Chevvy big block and bored to 8.4 litres. The two heads come from Corvettes and that big monster on the hood is a Weiand Supercharger with twin Holley carburetors.

There’s a line-lock feature on this Camaro that locks the front brakes for easy burnouts, if you are into that sort of thing.

The interior is original ‘stock interior’ and features black-on-black vinyl seats and carpets. Oh, and it is a left-hand drive. Just check out the cool retro styling; that oversized three-spoke steering wheel, that airplane gearshift, and the cockpit style round instrument dials. It just looks so badass.

This car is powered by 8.4-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine and is mated to a three-speed automatic Turbo 400 transmission, which sends power to the rear wheels. The engine produces in excess of 750hp and accelerates 0-100km/h in about 3.5 seconds and goes on to a top speed of 241km/h or 150mph if you are keeping in old school. Drag diff. Line lockers.

This 1969 motor is a classic and therefore only €55 a year to tax and doesn’t go through the NCT. It also qualifies for classic motor insurance. It comes with 7,057km on the clock and a €59,950 price tag.

If this Chevrolet Camaro SS is your dream car, then contact Cameron Cars in Dublin to arrange a test drive.
