Popular American actress Mila Kunis has been featured on our latest car girls section posing in front of a new Chevrolet Camaro.

If you really need attention, then turn to the guys at Tintek, a Czech tuning company that specializes in chrome wrap as seen here on the Chevrolet Camaro SS. They say this is the first chrome wrapped car of its kind in the Czech Republic, and that would mean it’s also the only car that could possibly blind you. The tuners were able to do this with a special 3D foil car wrap applied to the exterior over the original paint. It seems that this is becoming more popular with tuning firms these days, so the customers must be pleased. Tintek has several other colors available as well with the chrome look, including gold, black, green, blue, orange, red, and violet. Hit the jump to watch a video of the car in action.
Here is the 2011 MOTION Chevy Camaro Phase III that was on display at the Super Chevy Show in Palm Beach, Florida. It was held at the Florida International Raceway last weekend, and this car packs a real punch with a GM LS7 427 aluminum block engine holding a 2.8-liter Twin-Screw Supercharger producing 800 horsepower. The Camaro creation comes from the partnership of tuners Joel Rosen and Howard Tanner of Redline Motorsports. Rosen created the Baldwin-Motion 427 and 454 Camaros, while saying, “Back in the day we built record-setting 500-horsepower big-block Camaros and backed them up with warranties. My new 427-SC delivers 300 more horsepower…And, it has a one-year, 12,000-mile warranty.”
A new tuning kit for the Chevy Camaro convertible has been released by Hennessey Performance. We now have a video of the tuned ride, called the HPE600, and featuring a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine. A TVS2300 supercharger to be exact, along with new high flow fuel injectors, cold air induction system, sport exhaust system, and a re-programmed ECU to keep everything running smooth. After the tuning, the modded Camaro now produces 602 horsepower and 605 lb-ft of torque. At the track, this allows the Chevrolet to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds, while completing the quarter mile in 12.0 seconds flat at 118 mph.
The new Irmscher i42 Camaro was a hit at the Essen Motor Show, and now the tuning company plans to start producing a limited run of these cars. Based on the Chevrolet Camaro SS, it comes with a 6.2-liter V8 engine, but received a supercharger and custom exhaust for extra power. The tuners were able to boost the horsepower number to 509, and the track figures don’t lie. It is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds, and top out at 275 km/h, which is much more powerful than the factory Camaro SS. This Chevy Camaro i42 needed a high performance brake kit from Irmscher, so they installed 380 mm discs with 6-piston calipers at the front, and 355 mm discs with 4-piston calipers at the rear.
Here is the latest car tuning project from Hennessey Performance based on the all new Chevy Camaro SS called the HPE600. The orange car you see here is actually the model for the HPE550 package, but we think it looks better than the maroon HPE600 pictured below. It will be available for the 2010-2011 LS3 or L99 engines and boosted with a TVS2300 Supercharger System. Hence the HPE600 name, the modified Camaro now puts down 602 hp and 807 Nm of torque. The tuners who are located in Texas, claim that the 0-60 mph time is in the mid three-second range, and it can run the quarter mile in 11 seconds. A full list of performance customizations include the new supercharger system, HPE cold air induction system, 1 7/8 inch long tube stainless steel headers, fuel injector upgrade, high flowing catalytic converters, HPE engine management calibration, and a dyno tune to get everything in sync.
The car manufacturers from Chevrolet have brought a trio of test cars for their new Z-Spec line of aftermarket accessories for the Chevy Volt, Cruze, and Spark models. The first teaser is with the concept version of the all-new Volt electric car. Sure, an electric vehicle is not a typical tuning project, however that doesn’t mean it can’t look good with a body kit, blacked-out trim, and a new wheel package. The Chevy Volt also received a new sports steering wheel, leather wrapped Recaro seats, and racing foot pedals. This new Z-Spec lineup is being showcased on the three small cars; the Volt, Cruze, and Spark right now, but in the future Chevrolet plans to offer the whole line to all models. Chris Perry, the vice president of Chevrolet marketing said, “Chevrolets have always been vehicles customers love to personalize and Z-Spec could give them more choices than ever.” Hit the jump to view the full press release and see all the pictures.
The tuners from aLL STaR Performance have revealed this image of the custom Chevy Camaro SS set to debut at the 2010 SEMA Show in a few weeks. They’ve been teasing the tuning enthusiasts with the Camaro under wraps, but we now have the clear picture of the project. From what we can see, Gene Marcel will take a more conservative route with this car, keeping the natural lines of the Chevy Camaro in tack. The paint job comes courtesy of Dupont, while a set of Forgestar wheels wrapped in Falken high performance tires complete the exterior.
A killer wide body kit conversion has been made for the Chevrolet Corvette, from the tuners at ZR1 Body Kits. The Chevy Corvette already looks great from the factory, but this look has been inspired by the C6.R Corvette racing cars, featuring an aggressive stance and exterior styling. It is available in two varieties, the more aggressive called the Extreme Style ZR1 for the C6 Z06 Grand Sport retails for $7,599, while the tuning firm also offers the mild OEM-style ZR1 body kit for $6,999. Both of these performance packages are made from fiberglass using compression molds, and is similar to what the GM OEM manufacturers use for their body panels, while keeping the factory mounting points.
The Chevrolet Cruze is sure to be a hit on the market with its economical numbers and great price. Future Chevy Cruze owners will now have a chance to customize their sporty sedan with a pit kit package from the manufacturer. Chevrolet is offering this race-inspired option pack to enhance the styling of the Cruze automobile, and they even partnered up with the Silverline Chevrolet team to work out the final tweaks. This tuning kit includes the 18-inch white multi-spoke alloy rims wrapped in high performance tires, a stiffer suspension setup, boot spoiler, and unique CS graphics.
