Post SMS 620 Camaro Unveiled and Auctioned

I think it's kindof disappointing that they didn't really do any unique bodywork other than the (ugly) hood.

The front is stock, which doesn't look ANYTHING like their rendering.

Isn't that a Stillen splitter?

Quote:
When Steve Saleen launched his new company, SMS Supercars, back in 2008, he announced that he would be expanding his portfolio of vehicles to include the muscle car offerings from Chevrolet and Dodge. First up was the 570 and 570X Challenger, followed soon after by the 302 Mustang.

Now, Steve Saleen's muscle car trifecta is finally complete, as SMS officially unveiled the 620 Camaro at Barrett-Jackson this week. The car maintains the styling cues featured on both the Challenger and Mustang with an aggressive front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser, butterfly hood and chrome 20-inch wheels. Inside is a custom leather interior, and under the hood, the 6.2-liter V8 has been supercharged to 620 horsepower and 570 pound-feet torque.

In addition to unveiling the car at Barrett-Jackson this week, SMS actually auctioned off the first production example last night. This particular car was also a special "Bondurant Edition" in honor of Steve Saleen's former racing teammate, Bob Bondurant, and the two decided to donate the proceeds from the sale to two charities: Cox Charities and the Make A Wish Foundation of Arizona.

So, how did the car do? Bidding for the SMS 620 Camaro eventually reached the $100,000 mark, meaning the two charities will be getting a significant donation and the lucky new owner just got a nice tax write-off. Did we mention a Bondurant three-day performance driving school is included with the car? - http://www.autoblog.com/2012/01/20/s...t-example-for/

Looks like the whole stillen body kit. Cool rims though... I wish they would have made that bumper!

I'd expect more.

Cool nonetheless, but it'd be nice if they did more...

Wow, I would have thought that this car would have "popped" a little more. I am not really that impresses. Especially for $100,000

I'm at B/J for the week, seen it, not impressed. Hennessy, SLP, Callaway are way nicer more complete offerings. It looks like a lot of aftermarket parts just bolted on, nothing unique to it except the hood (yuk), wheels (eh), and seat covers (nice). The brake upgrade is to the fronts only, I was expecting more I guess. I'm just wondering what it will actually sell for to the public. I think SMS should go back to the drawing board if they want to complete with the big tuners out there.

IMHO, it wouldnt matter how cool the car was, Id dislike it on principal. All Saleen could do was badmouth the Camaro before the '10s hit production.
