We’ll stick with the new Camaro for another week, this time highlighting the Martin Z875, featuring 875 hp and a premium body kit from Grip Tuning.
This modified 2011 Camaro SS convertible offers power and performance tuned by renowned race car builder Harold Martin that revs with a unique roaring exhaust note. The finishing touch is Grip’s aggressive, low-to-the-ground body kit that includes front and rear air dams, rocker panels and a highly styled rear deck lid spoiler.
This is the second “Extreme Elegance” vehicle Grip Tuning has developed in partnership with Martin-the other is the Martin V1000, a modified Cadillac CTS-V Coupe capable of 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds. Both will be at SEMA in Grip’s Booth #13047 in the North Hall.
The Martin Z875 Camaro is built for power on demand, featuring a 427-ci, blueprinted supercharged/intercooled engine that produces 875 hp and 710 foot-pounds of torque at 11 psi. Martin’s Z875 engine includes unique pistons, rods, crankshaft and camshaft assembly, according to a press release.
Martin also developed a CNC cylinder head and intake port to optimize breathing and air flow. The fuel system is optimized on the Martin fuel flow bench.
Other features include a tubular stainless steel high-performance, free-flowing exhaust that broadcasts power with a roar, and 20-inch luxury BBS black painted wheels mounted to high-grip Toyo Proxes 4 performance tires.
Elegance is further defined with a custom painted engine cover, red and black premium leather interior and Grip’s body style kit made of proprietary composite materials for added strength and durability.
“The Martin Z875 is part of a growing stable of vehicles being built under the Extreme Elegance brand,” Martin said. “Each has the potential to be modified for specific performance enhancements based upon the client’s preferences. Our goal is to build vehicles that synthesize speed and style. Our partnership with Grip provides some of the best exterior styling we’ve seen for today’s late model luxury and hot rods. Both of these vehicles provide the ultimate in comfort while pushing the envelope for performance.”
