Lingenfelter’s New Weapon in Optima Challenge: the “L28 Camaro”
 
1 Attachment(s)
The guys at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering will be toting a brand new weapon to take on the baddest street cars in the U.S.A. at the upcoming 4th Annual OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational. The event has gained a reputation of bringing together the biggest names in the automotive performance industry and some of the most impressive hand-built supercars that America has to offer. You had better be locked and loaded if you want to take on this field of contenders- and Lingenfelter is bringing out the big guns with their 2010 “L28” Camaro.

The L28 Camaro project team was kind enough to share some of the details of their secret weapon with us, and we can tell you the L28 Camaro’s mile-long modification’s list is topped off by an LPE-built LS7 that churns out 681 horsepower and 588 pound-feet of twist, and LPE’s signature body kit for the 5th Gen Camaro. That big, beautiful body will be rolling on a set of 20×10.5 Forgeline wheels, and enormous six-piston Brembos paired with 15-inch two piece rotors ought to stop the Camaro in a hurry, while the LPE/Pedders SportsRyder Supercar Coil-over Suspension package will keep it all firmly planted to the track.

The 2011 Annual OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational will be held on Saturday, November 5th, at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Pahrump, Nevada. We can’t wait to see how this car performs, and for the first time ever, spectators will be allowed to purchase tickets for the event, and will get to see first-hand just how well the LPE L28 Camaro will stack up against its stiff competition.

This will be a great event to keep track of. Anyone going that could take some videos would be nice to post here! Congrats to the hard working, creative folks at LPE and all sponsors.

So SLP does a ZL1 version before Chevrolet...and now Lingenfelter does a L28 (come on its their Z28 version) before Chevrolet. O, please let Chevrolet put out a limited run of Z28s before the platform changes. Would be nice, no?

Well, there is two more years of G5 NO? Well, it sure as sh@t should happen! Two years is too long to wait without giving the Boss something to worry about.

All in fun...

Zactly!!! And was why I stated limited run and not unlimited which would make it more a potential to have it sooner than later...the pooners would under stand that concept...LAND PIRATES!!! ARGH...:yikes:

We ran a 1:51.3 around the Spring Mountain Race Course, and finished with the 9th fastest time of the day. The remaining results are still coming in. Our goal was to finish top 10 in the road course. Not bad for a 4,100+ lbs. car [including driver] !!

Click the first link to view the gallery, which I'll be adding to throughout the next few days.

Nice! Its interesting how large the 5th gen looks near a 1st and 2nd gen.

Looks like Mr and Mrs DSE up there in the front row with ya.

LOWDOWN 11-07-2011 07:13 PM

A Gen-5 Camaro casts about the same shadow as a late-'60s Chevelle...

The Tuckers did well at Pahrump...as they do most places they run. Good people making good products that run well.

Congrads LPE, ninth overall is great at that event,only the best of the best in the country get invited.Not to mention the LPE 5th gen camaro was over 8 seconds faster than the next fastest 5th gen camaro.I think LPE and Pedders made a nice package tons of power and glued to the track.

At the risk of repeating myself, this is from the other thread:

I think your "Top 10" finish, considering 6" of snow in the pass 'tween Vegas and Pahrump, combined with a 37* temp Saturday AM...in a Brand New combination untested @ Spring Mountain...speaks VOLUMES for potentialities!

Well-done, Pete, and all those who were a party to this worthy endeavour!


Remember, folks, the NUMBER 1 mod for any car? Seat time...

Gramps69Z 11-08-2011 10:24 AM

Just watched the show and :drool::drool::drool::drool:.

Great job!!

LOWDOWN 11-08-2011 11:00 AM

Too bad there hadn't been a relatively stock Z06 or ZR1 (or dare I say ZL1!) present...

I just cut down this footage of our hot lap, which is actually when I shot that shot coming out of turn 10 (Entering the beginning of this lap). Great video to work with, and a lot of fun cranking it up! This new crate motor has a real sense of urgency!

JusticePete 11-08-2011 03:02 PM

Well yeah there is the LPE crate motor, the LPE side exhaust, the LPE... :D

Couldn't have done it without Pedders, Forgeline wheels, Brembo brakes, and the Michelin's too... and all the hard work. Thanks again Pete! I love how flat this thing corners!

The motor is NA 427 LS7 putting down those numbers or does it have the TVS blower on it??
