Three years ago, the chaps at Roadster Shop decided to convert a 1969 Chevy Camaro into something a little more special. They dubbed it 'Inferno' and, excuse the pun, but boy is it hot!
The idea behind the design was to create a 'concept car' vibe, which means plenty of the vehicle is custom built. From the flush-mounted windshield and custom backlight to the shaved drip-rails, custom acrylic taillights with billet-aluminium bezels and a 3D printed backing housing the LED boards.
Under the hood, you'll find a huge 6.2 litre LT1 V8 – built by Texas Speed & Performance – with a Tremec T56 Magnum transmission attached, delivering a rather significant 680hp to the rear wheels.
To get the electric power steering of the LT1 working correctly, The Roadster Shop engineered their own serpentine-drive system, based on a computer model provided by Chevy, to mount a KRD power-steering pump. A Woodward Racing rack-and-pinion was selected to finish things off.
To attached the Inferno to the tarmac, Greening Auto Company designed two-piece billet wheels especially for the car based on scans of the brake callipers and 14-inch Baer brake rotors used. And to keep it stuck, there are 265/30/19 Michelin Pilot Super Sports up front and 335/30/20 at the rear.
The suspension employs Penske double-adjustable coil overs on each corner while the three-inch exhaust and Borla mufflers end at machined tips in a custom valence.
The interior was fabricated by Avant-Garde Design in Palm City, Florida, using CNC-machined panels that are held in place with powerful magnets, which allows the leather and suede upholstered panels to be removed in a matter of minutes.
The result is gorgeous and we think this conversion is amazing. What do you think? Leave your comments below.
