The custom tuners from Chrome & Carbon in Dubai have sent us these images of their Chevy Camaro widebody kit called the Guyver. Why is it called the Guyver? The name is from an older Japanese anime series where the characters transformed into robotic warriors. This sports car definitely looks like it could have been in the movie Transformers while the widebody kit is priced at 18,000 USD or 13,500 EURO and will hold plenty of carbon fiber as expected from a company named Chrome and Carbon.

MOTION Chevy Camaro Phase III Packs a Punch
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.”
Hennessey Camaro HPE600
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.
Irmscher i42 Camaro
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.
Hennessey Camaro SS HPE600
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.
Chevy Z-Spec Line For Volt, Cruze, and Spark
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.
