2010 SMS (Steve Saleen) 620 Camaro to debut in Detroit NAIAS -- first photos

Quote:
PRESS RELEASE:

Corona, CA/Detroit, MI – (January 11, 2010) At the 2010 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Steve Saleen is launching the first official images of the 2010 SMS 620 Camaro, the third and latest of the ultra-high performance automobiles produced by Steve Saleen's company, SMS Supercars of Corona, CA.

Steve Saleen, President and CEO of SMS Supercars, explains "The SMS 620 Camaro will be the only Camaro authorized to benefit from my heritage and to incorporate innovations derived from my thirty plus years of racing and manufacturing experience. We are excited to add the SMS 620 Camaro to our line of SMS Signature Series cars, which includes the SMS 570 Challenger and SMS 460 Mustang."

The SMS 620 Camaro has a striking design that makes it stand out in the market. Chief Creative Officer of SMS, Phil Frank notes, "We have incorporated our well-known functional SMS Red Butterfly™ Dual Side Induction Hood as well as our race-proven aerodynamics in this third vehicle in our SMS Signature Series. The SMS 620 Camaro is a dramatic and iconic visual statement that very clearly bears the SMS design DNA."

The bespoke interior includes high performance gauges and all-new Alcantara and leather SMS performance seats that feature the patented Signature Series chevron stripes. SMS offers its Tailor Made™ options for the exterior, interior and engine compartment; highlighted by a dozen show car quality custom SMS exterior colors. This newest creation by Steve Saleen's company is scheduled for a market launch in the second quarter of 2010.

These vehicles' power, performance and engineering befit their design. The SMS 620 Camaro will utilize a 6.2 liter V8 engine featuring 575 hp and 600 ft-lb of torque, while the even more powerful 6.2 liter V8 of the SMS 620X Camaro, with all new internals and CNC headwork, delivers a stunning 715 hp and 700 ft-lb. Both use the (patent pending) SMS 296™ Supercharger for their incredible horsepower and torque gains. Transmission options include a 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual on both models.

The SMS 620 Camaro accelerates from 0 to 60 in under 4.3 seconds, while the SMS 620X Camaro manages the same in closer to 4.0. In addition to engine output, handling, road holding and braking improvements, the 620X will feature options such as Magneto-Rheological Semi-Active Dampers and Torvec Isotorque Differential and 21" rear wheels. Both will offer new SMS 16" 8-piston front and 14" 6-piston rear brakes deliver impressive stopping power to match rail like cornering and jaw-dropping acceleration.
I personally think it looks good. I love the air vents on the hood Should be a good example of the Z28.

After the bullsh*t Steve Saleen said about the Camaro (back in 06 I think), I don't want anything to do with an SMS Chevy. Plenty of of GM loyal shops building supercars around here.

the whole front fascia is probably unique to the SMS cars.



I kinda like it, side butterfly valves are cool, engine setup is cool, but I wouldn't want Saleen to touch it.

Remember, those pics are just artists drawings. It will probably look alot different when the pics of the actual car show up.

I can do without the butterfly valves and I like the bottom of the fascia. Engine cover looks clean, but I would never let any of his touch my car.



FYI to those wondering why most of us don't like him

I could care less about bashing him, SMS doesn't belong to this forum yet. (and yes I closed the thread to avoid reviving it)

no offense to the mustang guys over my mustang market comment. Just wanted to clarify that.


Many of the Mustang aftermarket companies, (and in some cases Ford themselves) I've noticed are over the top and flashy.
NOt to say that you don't see Camaros like that either, it just seems to happen in the Mustang market much more often.

To say it nicely,

F**K SALEEN!

Who in their right mind would get Camaro modified by such a joke as Saleen. I'll leave them to the Mustang owners. If you want to get your Camaro modified, bring it to someone whos not full of sh*t.

That is true. Bumblebee was a modified GTO built by Saleen.
