    Lightbulb Saleen Camaro

    if what super steve has said is true and he will be working on the camaro, i hope it gets the S7 visual treatment. here are a few chops of what that might look like:






    i know they aren't perfect, this is one of my first attempts at multiple angles of the same chop.

    comments welcome

    it doesn't, the outside left one is behind the rear extension. look at the s281 and you'll see what i'm talking about, or just look at the right taillights .

    God I hope not. I hate ground effects/body cladding like they use on the Saleen Mustangs.
    They should have been left on the porch in the eighties.

    Re: Saleen Camaro

    I am more interested in what he had to say about the future Camaro powertrain.


    carcrazy.com assistant editor John Breaux caught up with Saleen at the 2006 Cruisin the Coast Auto Show in Biloxi Mississippi.

    CC: Are the rumors of you teaming up with GM true or false?

    Saleen: My team just worked with GM last month on the Transformers movie. We had such a good relationship with them that we are infact going to team up with them on future projects?

    CC: What future projects?

    Saleen: Well the Camaro project is one of them, I've watched from a distance while they've been putting the production model together. I think it would be foolish on our part if we didn't get a part of that action (Steve laughs).

    CC: So are you going to do your own versions of the new Camaro?

    Saleen: It's not legally official right now, but that's what we're hoping for.

    CC: What kind of upgrades will you make, have you seen the engine GM is using in the Camaro?

    Saleen: I hope I don't get in trouble with GM for saying this, but they're using a 6.2 liter 450 horsepower engine for the premium V8 in the 2009 Camaro and the base Corvette. The base V8 will probably be a detuned version of the same 6.2. So we'll just upgrade the 6.2 liter V8 to Saleen level specifications. We're going to upgrade the 6.2 liter V8 if we're given the legal chance by GM. Our base model should have around 485 horsepower, and expect our Extreme Supercharged Camaro to have over 600 horsepower.

    yes yes very interesting, but when you see one on the road the engine isn't what'll catch your attention .

    Looks pretty cool. I especially like the blacked out rear taillight area.

    I beg to differ. The engine can attract a lot of attention. The roar from a bored-out small block definately puts hands to ears and eyes to cars
