2010 VR Camaro – Click above for high-res gallery

The idea sure sounds horrible; a Camaro with styling cues from the Lamborghini Reventon; but seeing the VR Camaro tells a different story. Available only in two color schemes, a Bandit-pleasing black and gold, or Hurst-reminiscent white and gold, the VR looks badass, either way. Making it past the bombastic fascia, the rest of the body modifications are knife-edged but less over-the-top. The decklid gets a '70s-inspired ducktail spoiler, and while the styling tweaks are un-subtle, Denmark's Hermann and Brandt has used a balanced hand.

It's not all show and no go, either. The body mods have been rendered out of carbon fiber, and the big 22-inch wheels are actually lighter than original equipment. A new coil-over suspension replaces stock components, and upgraded brakes carry 12-piston (!) front calipers while rear brakes are forced to make do with eight pistons per caliper - enough for two complete braking systems in some lesser cars. The engine is also treated to a supercharger of Union Jack origins for an expected 600-plus horsepower.

Considering that GM is not exporting the Camaro to European markets that require a steering wheel on the right, the only way to get one is by importing a wrong-hand-drive (to them) version or waiting for this VR Camaro, which will be the first LHD conversion available, to arrive early next year.

      Here in N/A the parachutes usually go on at the back of the car.


      Maybe if they were...oh, about 1/10 scale? Maybe??

      For the love of God please, please stop with the bad Camaro concepts. They just keep trying to milk that dead horse into oblivion. Enough already!!!!

      lame... so you rip off the front fenders of a Lamborghini worth 42X as much and call it a day? I liked the camaro when it came out, but with all the whoring that people have done its basically the next mustang in terms being whored out to anyone with a dollar and a dream.

      Wow. Absolutely epic.
        • 5 Years Ago
        yeah, epic failure

      Funny... I don't think it looks all that bad. It's not pretty by any means, (& I'd never want one) but they'd have to mess it up a lot more than that for the Camaro to be ugly IMO.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Agreed. Although it does look like the car has mutton chops.

      RHD Camaro's are already being made and sold downunder.
