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.
The tuners at Lingenfelter have released two new tuning kits for the Chevrolet Camaro sports car. It starts out with the Signature Series 1 which consists of several new aero parts, a new hood, revised grille, front spoiler, side skirts, and trunk spoiler round out the package. The styling upgrades continue inside the Chevy Camaro with new embroidery for the seats, aluminum pedals, and a number plaque to note its rarity. Performance modifications are modest, but do feature a sport suspnesion kit and Magnaflow high performance exhaust.
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.
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.
Two tuners, Pennzoil and RCR Street Performance Group teamed up to complete this special edition Chevrolet Camaro SS for the track. Included in the package is a new aero kit consisting of a front splitter, rear diffuser, side skirts, rear spoiler, and a carbon fiber hood. The tuning firms then decided to black out the tail lights and rear light area, redesign the front grille for a more aggressive look, and install a new set of 22-inch aftermarket wheels. Performance tuning was next on the list, and this Chevy Camaro SS went through an intensive lineup of parts.
Hurst Performance has released a limited edition package for the Chevy Camaro Series 5. Trying to keep it exclusive, only 50 of these models will be made each year, and will be painted with Hurst’s white and gold colors. It received a unique feature with a gold mica in the white and gloss black graphics that were placed along the hood, sides, and rear. The most interesting detail about this Hurst Performance Camaro are the custom forged alloy rims measuring 20-inches that come wrapped in BFG KDW high performance tires. Improving the aesthetic value even further is an AIR-SPEED rear deck spoiler to separate it from the norm.
Specter Werkes, a Corvette tuning company from Troy, MI have released pictures of their Corvette C6 GTR that is set to reveal at the SEMA show next week. Under the hood is the Corvette LS7 V8 engine with a twin-turbo setup courtesy of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. After the tuning was completed, the performance numbers show an incredible 800 hp with looks that can kill. The exterior received BASF pearl blue paint, HRE CF40 carbon fiber wheels, and Specter Werkes custom body kit package for the Corvette C6 GTR. I think the paint looks great, and the body work along with the black wheels to contrast the blue worked out very well for Specter Werkes.
