2010 Lingenfelter Camaro SS - Click above for high-res image gallery
The controversially-styled T/A Concept wasn't the only car that Lingenfelter Performance Engineering brought out to SEMA this year. Yesterday the legendary performance company unveiled its 2010 Camaro SS, and we made sure to stop by the Hotchkis booth to see the car in person.
With a modified version of the 427ci LS7 V8, the Lingenfelter Camaro is a serious contender for the most potent Camaro on the show floor. With a Magnuson supercharger, titanium connecting rods, forged JE pistons and titanium intake valves, the 7.0-liter motor pushes out 750 horsepower! Performance upgrades also include a clutch and flywheel from the ZR1 that have a better shot at standing up to the abuse, Corsa exhaust system, Brembo brakes, Hotchkis suspension components and more.
Visually, the Camaro gets Lingenfelter's body kit that leaves no panel untouched including a carbon fiber grille, a hood with functional air extractors and custom 10-spoke wheels. Read more about the car after the jump, or check out our live photos in the high-res gallery below.
