CGS Camaro for SEMA 2010 – Click above for high-res image

CGS is a lock to bring something unique to the annual SEMA show, and after the ReFlex and FlatBack Mustang of the last two years, the tuner has left the Ford family for GM. This year, a 2011 Chevy Camaro will step into the modification chamber, getting a body kit that includes a ZR1-style hood. Under the window you might get a glimpse of the Whipple twin-screw blower that helps boost output to 500 horsepower. 22-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli rubber bands help complete the look. Follow the jump to read the press release, and check out the high-res image below.

      Get rid of the over-the-top wheels and I actually like the color scheme quite a bit.

      The rest of the go-fast bits are just too much - especially when the uprated engine finally gets released, but I do dig the paint.

        I struggle to take a performance tuner seriously when they enhancement formula includes adding unspring weight. I also like the color scheme, but overall, my aftermarket Camaro boat remains best floated by Callaway.

      *sigh*

      I miss the days when cars came with tires.

      I dont get this whole 18-22" "rims" craze.

      Gimme a nice set of 15's with some meaty tires and i'll be happy as a clam.

        Big rims jumped the shark a while ago, I think when donks came on the scene. I can't grasp why people choose to have poor performance, lousy mileage and flat tires.

      Enough with all the custom Camaros....

      Can any company make a clean and simple design? Apparently everyone loves tacky lately
        • 4 Years Ago
        Can not agree with you more...keep it clean, refined. And enough already with transparent hood insert.

      Looking at this and the Mustang, CGS would appear to be big fans of the 71 Charger R/T stripe package.

      Reflex and FlatBack were designed for CGS by Sean Smith (http://seansmithdesigns.com/). He is obviously not working with CGS this year. Additionally, I believe the FlatBack Mustang was owned by Sean, and recently sold at Barret Jackson.

      What is with concept/rendering artists and giant tacky looking wheels??? I mean seriously I've never seen a car with enormous rims in which they didn't make the car look horrible and tasteless. Just pop on a set of these rims and be done with it.

      I'm always amazed to read the comments on these forums. Jus a few points from other posts from people who know nothing about building real cars.

      1. Everyone who is making comments about the wheels and sizes. "A stock 2011 SS comes with 20" wheels" so these are not hugely oversized...to the guys who say 15" or 17" is the way to go, your 1985 Iroc is waiting for you... enjoy!

      2. Where did anyone get chrome from? The description says Boyd wheels they make Billet wheels. Its a rendering, they are just trying to give a preview of the car to spark interest.

      3. The power rating was at the rear wheels conservatively. The car is all over the internet with 672hp at the flywheel. If you went with a 20% loss your at 537 rear wheel hp.

      4. What ever happened to, if you dont have something nice to say keep your opinion to yourself. All of these companies put alot of time, work and money into building the cars everyone looks at in the magazines, SEMA and car shows but somehow its the guy with the 82 stock camary that runs his mouth. With the economy the way it is were lucky people are still forking over the money to build cool cars.

      I dont mean to rant but I enjoy seeing new designs, some you will like.. some you wont but I appreciate the efforts none the less. You might be an american car fan or an import but if you cant appreciate the time, and effort your not a real fan of car building...

      Thats all..

        Polished billet is as close to chrome as you can get.

        Oh, and welcome to the intrawebz:)

      Trying to rip off your own car from lasr year C(can't) D(design)S(SH**). Maybe you guys need to step up to the plate and try to be unique instead of doing the same old car with just a few minor changes. Looks an awful lot like flatback. When are you guys going to give it up and stick to something you know say for instance customizing trucks from the 90's cause that is the only time you were fresh. Dont hold your breath for any awards this year but hey your used to that.

      Almost 500 HP ? What's the blower putting out , 2lbs. of pressure ? And when will they ever get away from those twenty something wheels . I say 17's or less is plenty .
      I would love to see the difference in HP/Torque - weight - stopping distance - 0-60 - & quarter mile times between say 16 or 17 " wheels & tires as apposed to 22-24" wheels & tires .
      I think a lot of people would be surprised at the difference .

        Car & Driver had an article a couple months ago about wheel sizes, according to them there was no benefit after 18" wheels and the bigger they got the worse they performed in every way.

      Did you even look at the drawing? What is unique about that? There will be 50 of them at SEMA...just like it. Here's my quote from SEMA 2010, "Oh look. Another Camaro with a Corvette motor and 22" wheels. How unique."

      Please get a copy of The Elements of Style and look up the section on hackneyed phrases.

      kthxbye
