Dale Earnhardt Intimidator Chevrolet Camaro - Click above for high-res image gallery

Just when you thought you'd seen every special-edition Chevrolet Camaro out there another model comes along. Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet of Newton, NC has pulled the sheets back on a new Intimidator Camaro. The model follows in the footsteps of the 2001 Intimidator Camaro SS, by throwing a heap of extra horsepower at the already formidable muscle car. Under the hood, a supercharged V8 churns out 704 horsepower and 695 pound-feet of torque, while the rest of the vehicle has received suitable upgrades to cope with the increased performance. The suspension now wears one-inch drop rate springs, adjustable sway bars and new subframe connectors, along with a set of cross-drilled rotors help bring the vehicle down from speed.

A custom, single-piece aluminum shifter is part of the package indoors, as well as suede seat inserts, white-face gauges and an Intimidator logo embroidered into each headrest. Outside, the Intimidator Camaro can be distinguished from its non-NASCAR name-checking counterparts by its cowl hood, race-inspired spoilers and chrome wheels. Hit the jump to check out a video of the car under construction.

      The NASCAR-Dad demo will love it. Hopefully a few of them can even afford it and make this worth GM's while. But it still looks like a Pep Boys Batmobile... and this from someone who positively wants a stock SS.

      A scoop, a splitter, a spoiler and no seat belts.

        No seat belts? If so, lose the airbags too, and drop in a racing harness.

      The man is dead. When he was alive he was just a race car driver who sometimes acted like an *******. It's time for NASCAR fans to get over it and stop genuflecting at the mention of the name.

        Not a NASCAR fan myself, but I actually like the looks of this, not to mention the 704 ponies. That said, the man was a legend in his sport, so I have to respect that.

      Just a note, cross drilled rotors don't make you stop any better.

      I don't see the point of even spending the effort of writing an article about ANOTHER tuned muscle car. With the Camaro, it seems as if anyone can slap on some forced induction, crank up the boost and put up 700-1000hp no problem, but it still doesn't outperform a sportscar with half the power. Muscle cars aren't sports cars. A four-figure horsepower output doesn't change that.
