Custom Dually Chevy Camaro Wants Not For Traction, Subtlety 20

Chevy makes all kinds of vehicles – among them, at opposite ends of the spectrum, work-a-day pickup trucks like the Silverado and performance models like the Camaro. Seldom do the two meet, but that’s just what we appear to have here.

Shared with the world via Reddit and UAE Muscle is what appears to be a custom Camaro with the dual rear axle from a Silverado HD, spotted in the United Arab Emirates.

The wheels are enclosed in custom bodywork, but those don’t appear to be the only modifications. The whole thing is apparently dropped to the ground, fitted with Lambo-style scissor doors, some weird Giger-esque engine cover, a two-tone brown and white paintjob, an interior bathed in LEDs, and more tribal tattoos than a Pamela Anderson centerfold.

Subtle it is not, and we doubt the mods give it much of a performance edge. And those standard side mirrors aren’t going to show much beyond the rear haunches. But however much power it is packing, it doesn’t look like it’ll have much trouble getting it down to the tarmac.

Is The Base Chevrolet Camaro 2.0T A Proper Muscle Car? 16

Posted by Michael Karkafiris in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Camaro, Chevrolet Videos, video on 11 16th, 2017


The idea of having a Camaro powered by a turbo four-cylinder engine might sound strange to some people, even sacrilegious to some other, but that doesn’t make it necessarily a bad car.

Especially in this case, as the owner found his car -a brand new fully-loaded 2016 Camaro 2.0T with a manual and an original sticker price of $37k- sitting unwanted on a lot for eight months before buying it for just $26,000.

That’s basically Toyota 86-money for a very nicely balanced rear-drive coupe with 275hp and 295lb-ft of torque that also happens to be a Camaro. It’s all about perspective.

Sure, we’ve been used to Camaros destroying their rear tires to the tune of angry V8s but the current generation has also proven that it has a top-notch handling character so the base 2.0T model should be a very nice car indeed.

Let’s find out then if the four-banger Camaro deserves some credit thanks to Matt Farah’s latest One Take video.

All You Need To Know About The Chevy Camaro In 10 Minutes 12

The pony car industry has become one of the most exciting segments of the automotive market ever since the Ford Mustang was introduced some 53 years ago.

In the decades since the Mustang hit the road, many brands have tried to emulate the vehicle’s success, with varying degrees of success. Of all the Mustang emulators, one car stands out, the Chevrolet Camaro.

To get you up to speed with everything there is to know about the Camaro, Donut Media has published a 10-minute clip tracing the car’s history and detailing some of the most important variants built in the last five decades, including the famed Z/28.

Ever since launching, the Camaro has traded blows with the Mustang. However, that all ended in 2002 when Chevrolet pulled the plug on its pony car due to poor sales, effectively crowning the Mustang as the king of all pony cars. Eight years later, Chevrolet relaunched the Camaro with the generation we’re most familiar with.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Road & Track Names The McLaren 720S The 2018 Performance Car of The Year 2

Road & Track has named the McLaren 720S the 2018 Performance Car of The Year.

Designed to recognize cars that push the “limits of performance and pleasure,” the award was given to the McLaren which beat out nine other contenders in this year’s test which took place over the course of four days.

The ten contenders for the fifth-annual Performance Car of the Year award were broken into four categories and the McLaren 720S was pitted against the Lamborghini Huracán Performante in the prestigious supercar group. Despite calling the Huracán Performante the “unchallenged star of the show,” R&T’s editors gave the award to the 720S as “nothing short of a Kawasaki ZX-10RR has a prayer of keeping up with the McLaren.” They also praised the car’s natural feel and unintimidating driving experience.

The Grand Tourers category saw the Bentley Continental Supersports and Lexus LC 500 face off for top honors. The editors noted this was a difficult choice but decided the Lexus was the winner as it is a “stylish cruiser that can still clip an apex and be steered with the throttle.”

The Track Stars category is particularly interesting as it saw the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE compete with higher-end vehicles such as the Mercedes-AMG GT R and Porsche 911 GT3. The prestige of the latter two models wasn’t enough to overcome the Camaro’s impressive performance and modest price tag.

Lastly, there are the Wild Cards which include the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, Audi TT RS, and Honda Civic Type R. The first two vehicles have a serious horsepower advantage but the editors were impressed by the Civic’s ability to be “calm and comfortable when you’re cruising” and a “firecracker when you lean into it.”
