It’s A Project: Camaro To Drive For

Nov 9, 2012

Maybe you saw the illustration of this Rick Bottom Camaro in last month’s Restyling. Well here are some photos of the completed, restyled vehicle.

Every time Rick Bottom gets his hands on a car to restyle, it’s time to sit back and watch him go. Bottom teamed with Jannetty Racing Enterprises JRE on this “XTC 800,” a 2013 Camaro SS/RS convertible, featuring a Vortech V3supercharger with air-to-air intercooler.

But like those informercials say, “Wait. There’s more!”

How about the Eaton TruTrac posi unit; Jannetty billet diff side plates, “Rough idle blower cam” and Jannetty Vortech upgrade kit; Billy Boatperformance dual-mode exhaust; and American Racing Headers 1-7/8″-long tube headers and floor brace; and Pedders USA SuperCar suspension system by Raymond Performance.

Look at the exterior for Planet Color paint; 3dCarbon body kit and spoiler; RaceMesh grilles; Showstopper hood side marker lights and under-hood covers; Gary’s Customz vented fenders; Anzo taillights; American Brothers Designs billet accessories and door handles; and Pennington wind restrictor. Plus find the Classic Design Concepts sport bar; Axiom forged wheels; and Pirelli tires.

Go inside to see Metra 2-din dash kit and OE navigation; TruConnect wiring; and Vibe audio. Surround the driver and passengers in Roadwire leather upholstery; give the muscle car a Hurst shifter and roll controland Innovate gauges.

How about the Centerforce clutch  Lingenfelter fuel system and 3.70 gears?

Tucked away are Granetelli Motorsports  rotors and  plug wires; Autometer pillar pod; SCT tuning software; ID-850 injectors by Injector DynamicsHolley coil covers; Fragola AN fittings; and Driveshaft Shop 1,000-hp axles and aluminum drive shaft.
