Car and Driver: I Wanna Be Your Sledgehammer: Callaway Announces 610-hp Camaro

Callaway Camaro SC610

-

When Callaway was working on its C7 program, ultimately resulting in a 627-hp Corvette Stingray and a 757-horse Z06, the venerable tuning company had an eye on Chevy’s next car powered by the LT-series small block: the Camaro. And now they’ve loosed the bindings on their version of the sixth-generation of GM’s long-running coupe. The result is called the Camaro SC610 and, as you’ve likely surmised, the reworked LT1 engine makes a healthy 610 horsepower.

The majority of the extra meat comes courtesy of the Eaton TVS2300 Roots-type blower, the largest unit in the TVS line. Eaton’s unit is the core of what Callaway refers to as its GenThree supercharger system. In classic hot-rod style, the forced-induction pack makes use of a hole in the hood. But in the SC610’s case, it’s not to make room for a big ol’ 6-71 wearing an Enderle bugcatcher. Rather, the bonnet’s been opened up to expose the supercharger to cooler ambient air. An intercooler system features one main cooling element bolstered by two additional units to keep charge temperatures manageable. The SC610 also receives a high-flow cold-air intake.

Other standard equipment includes embroidered floor mats, carbon-fiber engine accents, custom sill panels, an underhood build plaque featuring the car’s VIN, and, of course, special badging to make it clear to the punters that you splashed out for a Callaway. The price for all the goodness? $16,995 on top of $37,275 for a basic Camaro SS coupe. Callaway will perform the conversion on convertibles as well, and the price is the same regardless of body style or transmission choice. The tuner warrants its work for three years or 36,000 miles, and repairs can be carried out at a Chevy dealer. Conveniently, that’s also where you’ll place your order.

There is a company out there that is making a 1000 hp LS motor for us hot rodders.  I need to borrow $40,000 to buy one.  Pump gas, reliable, and I need more money.
