RAM­PAGE CHEVY CA­MARO, BUILT BY ROAD­STER SHOP

NZ Performance Car - - Event Sema -

Ken Block’s wild 4WD Mus­tang wasn’t ri­valled by many builds, in terms of all-out crazi­ness, but one to hap­pily hold its own was the Road­ster Shop-built Ram­page Ca­maro. Un­like Ken’s Ford, the Ca­maro fea­tured some of the high­est-qual­ity fit and fin­ish, at a level the world has come to ex­pect from the Road­ster Shop. Based on a 1970 Ca­maro, the body is pri­mar­ily made of car­bon, with cus­tom (ex­tremely wide) over­fend­ers, rear wing, cus­tom front split­ter, rear dif­fusers, bon­net and boot. The 559kW (750hp) LS7 fea­tures a Har­rop cross­ram in­take and hor­i­zon­tally mounted Jerico five-speed dog box (it’s mounted like this as the Ca­maro is so damn low). The chas­sis is a com­plete one-off box chas­sis with man­drel-bent RHS rails, cus­tom tubu­lar dou­ble A-arms and hor­i­zon­tally mounted Penske coilovers op­er­ated by cus­tom bil­let bell­cranks. The wheels are two-piece Jong­bloed 305-Aeros with mas­sive 335/30-18 Hoosiers front and rear. The in­te­rior is all race, fea­tur­ing a MoTeC-con­trolled MoTeC dis­play, plenty of cus­tom bil­let com­po­nents , Ki­wimade Racetech seats, and car­bon fi­bre pan­els. The car it­self might not be your style, but imag­ine trans­fer­ring that level of build onto any Ja­panese chas­sis.
