Only bad thing about that is to get it financed you would have to basically put the $19,000 for the conversion down, so a bank would finance it.

Warranty

Is there a warranty offered with the Berger Camaro? Factory warranty or ?

Very nice car!!
I am sure that it is under a warranty as it is a Chevrolet dealership that the car is being ordered out of.
I wonder what the limited edition amount will be?

I'm not seeing the value. Wheels are horrible, all the black out pieces and stripes you can find anywhere, and the emblems can be CUSTOM ordered to your liking, not a dealerships. I guess if you like to spend $20k to be someones billboard....

4 autos and 16 manuals are being made. 12 were still available at the time of the release when I was at the berger show for the revealing of it.

Berger Chevrolet is our Club sponsor. I have ridden in this very car, and I'm here to tell you it's very fast. Gobs of torque and very linear power delivery.

The wheels are high dollar Forgeline wheels with custom made center caps. They will be available in polished (like these) a brushed finish and a few with black centers.

The suspension upgrades make a great handling car even better. The car is awesome, and of course is available in all the other colors (besides yellow) (as well, if you don't want to be Bumblebee). The chambered exhaust sounds great too, BTW.

The price is very competitive and will be less than a comparable level of performance from other aftermarket tuners.

Berger, being a Chevrolet dealership, has always had a full factory warranty on their modified Camaros. Of course ,nobody knows what the future will hold, but the 4th Gen Berger Camaros have become quite collectible and have held their value very well. Almost certain to increase in value down the road.

The initial batch of Berger SS Camaros will be 20 cars, with more in the future. I believe they have deposits on about half of the first 20 cars already.

$19k for a supercharger!? Pass! For that price they should change the body work some more and come up with more unique striping.

I'd rather spend $7k for SLP's supercharger package.

So did you factor in the supercharger, the rims and tires, all of the suspension up grades, exhaust and etc..or did you just see a supercharger on that list? there is more to modding a car than just adding horsepower and torque..nice first post by the way

I kinda figured the following:
  • 2000 for paint work - custom stripes, rear fascia, grill area... I was quoted 700 just to have the stripes on my hatch and stock spoiler painted by a local paint shop. Those jobs ain't cheap.
  • 500 for the custom grill (comparing the phantom grill posted last week on camaro5 was 550)
  • 3000 for the wheels alone on the low side - the USED listings for the same brand 3 piece forged wheels are 2500+
  • 500 for the tires (those are big tires...)
  • 5000 for the supercharger from what I found doing google searches for the same kit
  • 500 for the supercharged tune
  • 150 for the floor mats (a good Lloyd set [i think that's the brand I bought?] will go for about that)

That only leaves $7,550 on the table for the labor for installing the supercharger and suspension upgrades, the suspension changes with progressive rate springs, rod and rear subframe bushings, car cover, and all the little emblems that they do.

These prices are with the thought of "what it would take to replicate" by purchasing everything brand new and having a shop do the installs.

LOL!! I agree 1320junkie.
I'm not sure if you guys are familiar with the BERGER name? (It's kind of a big deal.) Sort of like COPO & BALDWIN-MOTION. I think it's totally worth the money. Keep in mind that it is a LIMITED EDITION type car that will more than likely bring some hefty cash later on down the road if keep as is and not really driven much. Plus, labor for working on these cars, isn't cheap!
