Nickey Chicago to offer Phase III 700HP version of 2010 Camaro SS!!!

As featured on homepage.

Exciting News Camaro Fans: Nickey Chicago in St. Charles, IL will be offering a 5th gen Camaro in Stage I, II or III options. If you know anyone who went to Chevy Vettefest or will be going, pick up the Official Program. You can read about each Phase. The article is on the back of the cover page aka page 1 of the program. Most of you guys are familiar with the old school Baldwin/Motion 1st gen and early 2nd gen Camaro's it will be something similar to that effect with a modern twist. The Stage III Nickey version will have a custom racing roll cage and a car that puts out 700 Horsepower.

For the younger guys on the site: Nickey, Fred Gibb, Dick Harrell were all legends in Illinois and the Midwest. Baldwin Motion & Don Yenko were legends out East. These guys built some of the fastest Camaro's made from 1967 - 1973. Nickey Chicago is trying to bring the magic back with their Stage I, II and III offerings.

I would think about $20K! Maybe I'm wrong but 700hp and the exterior looks too...way more than i have!

Mr Twisty 11-24-2008 09:30 PM

Probably ZR1 prices...AND ZR1 performance ;)

The stingray hood looks good along with that 427 badge.

tsg1391 11-24-2008 09:51 PM

But that beautiful hood (or any aftermarket hood for the 2010 Camaro that features a nice hoodscoop) will not look right with the SS fascia with the (non-functional) mail slot. And it will be pretty expensive having to replace both the hood and the front fascia in order to achieve the look of the yellow Camaro in the Nickey site.

Uh, I hate to be picky, but....... The Name of the Company is Nickey Chicago, not Nickey Chevrolet.

They are not the Old Nickey Chevrolet Dealership. However, they do make some really bad *ssss Cars!

I'm kinda a noob when it comes to these 3rd party companies, do they have a rich history ?

Stephano bought what was left of the company and is focusing on performance. They no longer sell new cars but legally, it's the same company.

I think he meant 20K over the price of the Camaro...

My problem with the nickey car, is since it has no connnection with a dealer that you have no chance of a warranty.

Hylton, was the 5th gen camaro there at the Chevy Vette Fest? Because I heard it might have been there but I decided not to go because I didn't hear anything else.

No but he had all the engines packages displayed. I have pictures but I am just waiting for package detail information.

True. I believe the Tom Henry edition is still trying to get around that warranty void right now. I figure anyone building a 700HP car is going to be stuck with a voided warranty regardless of what you do.

Oh yeah...that $20K didn't even include the cost of the car! I'm sure it's even more than that even for a basic package of engine and exterior stuff!

If the crate engine everyone is talking about is $14K then just imagine how much this will be...including the labor costs too!

Cool as hell but man, it's going to be major $$$$!!!

I'd rock it and drive the piss out of it but it's going to cost some major coin!

What do you guys think a 700HP 3900 LB car will do in the 1/4?

Here's a pic of the headers planned for the Phase III car.....:drool:

I would have serious doubts about the ability of the drivetrain to withstand that much horsepower.
If anybody has any supporting information on what the drivetrain went through during testing it would be appreaciated. I am seriously considering a procharger for mine and would like to feel confident in the drivetrain being able to handle even that increase confortably.

I think the weak link will be the rear. Guys around my area racing the gto area busting them up. So with 700hp they better address the rear.
