Hurst Redline Series Camaro - Click above for high-res image gallery

Proving that SEMA is more than just loud stereos and long buffet lines, we wanted to share with you our first in-person shots of the Hurst Redline Series Chevrolet Camaro. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of BFGoodrich's Radial T/A tire, Hurst has supplied each example of this limited-edition car with Spec Redline Edition Radial T/As. Under the hood, the Redline Series Camaro utilizes a 3.6-liter V6 engine but Hurst has added forced induction to the powertrain and as a result, power has risen to 360 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque. A turbocharger from STS is remotely mounted towards the rear of the car. The Camaro gains 50-percent more rear-wheel horsepower and torque over the standard V6, yet it still delivers 30 percent better fuel economy than the SS V8.

Sticking to the company's common theme of Hurst-centric styling touches inside and out, the car wears a black and white paint scheme that is offset with red pinstriping, large Hurst emblems on the front fenders, a ducktail spoiler off the rear of the car, badging on the exterior and interior and features the familiar pistol-grip shifter in the cabin.

The Hurst Redline Series Camaro is going to be limited to just 50 examples annually. Pricing is expected to fall in the mid-$50,000 range.

      So does this mean that Hurst and STS are the first one's to crack the 3.6L's computer?
      • 4 Years Ago
      The STS Turbo Camaro V6 kit does not produce 350hp. This is wrong. It does 400whp. STS is the only company that has cracked the computer. Whoever did this writeup was completely wrong and got their info mixed up. www.ststurboblog.com shows the STS Turbo system on the Hurst Camaro V6 and a dyno sheet. For an autoblog their info sucks.

        Thanks for the info. That makes a lot more sense.

      weaksauce. why not try? then you'd see decent gains. in a world where crap v6 hatchbacks comfortable eek 600+ hp from v6 powerplants I'd expect a modern muscle car to be able to at least reach the 400hp level with a turbo... but that would take a modicum of finess... and placement in the engine compartment.

      Uh oh. I'm gonna say it:

      the v8

      $50K for what amounts essentially amounts better fuel economy? What is Hurst smoking?
      • 4 Years Ago
      I've seen many of the STS systems suffer from oil starvation (they get their oil from the motor)....which means if something fails and you are running the car hard - turbo seizes and motor as well. At least then you could look at a LS3/LSA power train...if the car doesn't catch fire that is.
        • 4 Years Ago
        That's why my STS kit has a super duper loud warning buzzer if their is an issue with oil. I tested it. It's INSANELY LOUD. You would have to be deaf to not hear it. That way I don't ruin my motor.

      The problem is that they do not say that the 360HP is RWHP, and few manufacturers or tuners are going to publish RWHP because the numbers would be lower than the widely published crank HP numbers that everyone is going to compare against.

      No matter how it is shown by crank or rear wheel HP their 50% improvement claim doesn't hold water. And more than that it is a tough sell against the unstressed 426HP (crank) LS3 V8 engine, which gets pretty good gas mileage considering it's HP, and you can't forget the V8's 420FTTQ, compared to the blown V6's 320FTTQ.

      This is probably a BIG reason why Ford chose to use their 412HP 5.0 V8 in the Mustang GT, even though they could have probably gotten nearly as much HP (and slightly better gas mileage) using the turbo V6 EcoBoost engine.

      And most likely $50K will buy the supercharged LSA V8 powered Z/28 Camaro due out soon.

      weak sauce.
      • 4 Years Ago
      An increase of 48 hp that translates to a 50% increase at the wheels? Am I missing something?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Somebody's math is totally screwed up because I get:
      312 bhp (15% drivetrain loss) = 312-46.8= 265.2 rear wheel hp stock
      Now they claim that their modifications increase rear wheel hp by 50 % so:
      265.2 divided by 2 = 132.6
      Adding the 132.6 to 265.2 = 397.8 total rear wheel hp. NOT 360 rear wheel hp.
      Am I wrong?

      Math aside, I always thought it would be an awesome idea to get a DI V6 Camaro RS and slap twin turbos on it instead of getting the SS V8 version. It's nice to see this car and I like it.
      • 4 Years Ago
      A turbo mounted towards the rear of the car? What's the point of that? I could see turbo lag being measured in minutes or hours.
      • 4 Years Ago
      So many custom camaros, where are the sema stangs, or did the sema explorers eat them?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Damn it AUTOBLOG/AOL... Why do we the readers have to come in here and correct U???

        360rwhp (50% gain in rwhp and torque over stock) THAT'S AT THE WHEELS!!!!
        30 percent better fuel economy than the stock Camaro SS with its 6.2 liter V8
