    Chevrolet 272 Cobalt SS Supercharged Coupe




    Vehicle Highlights

    With the production SS Supercharged arriving in dealers later this year, GM Performance Division has already been tweaking. Never a group that can leave well enough alone, Performance Division’s modus operandi can be clearly seen in the Cobalt SS Supercharged Coupe. This vehicle was created to demonstrate the potential for street performance. The subtle exterior treatment of this show vehicle cloaks a host of engineering upgrades that yield significant improvements in acceleration and handling. Horsepower hits 270, larger brakes spin at the ready, and a lowered suspension steadies the chassis. Carbon fiber cues hint at the performance potential of this complete package.

    Supercharged and intercooled 2.0L engine producing 270 horsepower
    Functional fresh air intake integrated into hood
    Fabricated air intake box
    Low-restriction exhaust system from the catalyst rearward
    Traction-enhancing limited-slip differential added to the heavy-duty five-speed manual transmission
    Suspension lowered by 40 mm (1.6 inches) and tuned by GM High Performance Vehicle Operations (HPVO)
    Large-diameter four-wheel-disc braking system with Baer rotors and production calipers
    19-inch wheel and tire package
    Audio system with Pioneer Electronics speakers and Alpine amplifiers
    Aftermarket Motorola cell phone with IHF 1000 Premium Car Kit
    Re-trimmed, custom interior that highlights SS heritage
    Exterior styling that explores new concepts based on production Cobalt SS Supercharged

    I would like to see this in dealers, even in limited prod. numbers, so that Chevy could hold bragging rights over Mitsu, Dodge and Subaru.

    The only thing I don't like is the hood scoop. Looks tacked on. Should be integrated better.

    As I said before...that Ecotec is capable of way more than 205 HP on stock components. And where is our production LSD?? The Redline Ion needs one....bad!

    I like the Corvette inspired exhaust haha.

    AWESOME. I love the way it looks ( - the scoop), and you cant argue with 270 hp. Thats 1997 Z28 numbers right there! (and more than 2004 mustange GT numbers)

    The Saturn ION Redline will have an available competion package in mid-2005 with LSD and a boost gauge integrated into the face of the tachometer.

    I'm not the fast and furious type, give me a V8 any day, but I like it. I think the scoop being tacked on gives it more of a WRX type look, but doesn't fit the smooth look of the car.

    "Supercharged and intercooled 2.0L engine producing 270 horsepower"

    in one of the Top Gear programmes they complained that the Solstice makes "only" 170 hp from 2.4L engine.
    what will they say now???

    Looks good. If this was also in sedan form with AWD/4WD, it would compete well with the EVO and STi.
