Restomods are the new thing these days, so you can imagine how much attention the supercharged, 1970 Chevrolet Camaro RS Concept featured here received when it was unveiled at SEMA 2015.
In case you don’t know what restomods are, they are classic cars that have been modernized with current manufacturing techniques and technologies. They shouldn’t be confused with restorations, which generally involve taking great classic cars and restoring them with all (or most) of the original factory parts.
With the so-called Camaro RS Concept, Chevrolet took a second-generation F-Body 1970 Camaro and updated it with some truly impressive modern piece of tech, the most noteworthy of which is an all-new LT4 supercharged V8 borrowed from the current, C7 Corvette Z06.
That’s right, while the exterior is from a bygone era, breathing under the hood of this retro Camaro is one of the most powerful engines ever to grace the earth. Paired with a T-56 Super Magnum six-speed manual gearbox, it produces 650 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 650 lb-ft. (880 Nm) of torque at 3,600 rpm.
Other performance upgrades include an independent front layout and a four-link rear arrangement for the suspension, as well as a rack-and-pinion steering system and ceramic-matrix brakes also taken from the Corvette Z06.
As far as looks go, Chevrolet applied a Hyper Blue Metallic exterior paint scheme like the one offered on the latest Camaro, combining it with white rally stripes for a more race-ready look. We also see LED headlights and taillights, and a sweet set of 9-inch polished alloy wheels.
Inside, the American muscle car boasts a special instrument cluster, custom-trimmed seats borrowed from the third-generation Camaro, and a six-point roll cage.
Sadly, the only purpose of the restomod Chevrolet Camaro RS Concept is to promote Chevrolet’s LT4 crate engine, meaning it will never be made. Are you mad?
Next-Gen Chevy Bolt EV Will Arrive In 2025
General Motors’ ambitious electric car plan will see the arrival of an all-new Chevrolet Bolt, but not for a long while.
Of the 20 new or more electric cars that the American automaker plans to release by 2023, none will be a replacement for the Bolt, a vehicle considered to be the first “affordable” long-range EV to hit the market. According to a report from , the current model will stick around until 2025, when the second-generation Bolt arrives.
If the report is true, that means that the Bolt will be on the market for nearly eight years without a full redesign, which is a long time considering how fast electric cars are changing. We can expect it to receive battery pack and electric motor upgrades as part of a mid-cycle refresh to remain competitive.
2025 also happens to be when the Cruze AV — the autonomous version of the Bolt — will enter production. Both the Bolt and Cruze AV will presumably be built on General Motors’ architecture for electric vehicles, which will be the basis for at least ten other models.
Chevy Drivers Can Now buy Gas Without Getting Out Of Their Car
Chevy and Shell have partnered up to make it easier for Chevy drivers to pay for gas without getting out of their car.
The two companies have introduced the first ever in-dash fuel payment system that allows drivers to pay directly through their Chevrolet’s touchscreen, sparing them the trouble of having to swipe a credit car or use a mobile device.
The new feature is accessed via the new Marketplace feature that’s available on select Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles and allows. All the driver simply has to do to begin fueling is hit a few buttons on the touchscreen to generate a unique code that activates a desired pump at a Shell gas station.
The new in-dash payment for Shell gas stations is currently in the pilot phase in select markets, but Chevy expects it to be rolled out the U.S. and possible Canada in a few months.
General Motors’s new Marketplace system was announced near the end of 2017 and also allows users to shop and make restaurant reservations via their vehicle’s touchscreen.
The easy life…
Chevy Camaro Gets New Face And Butt, Plus Turbo 1LE Model For 2019 MY
The sixth-generation Chevy Camaro has received a refresh for its 2019 model year in an effort to narrow the sales gap with the Ford Mustang, gaining a revised exterior, a new 1LE Turbo model, a new 10-speed automatic transmission, and improved gadgets.
Starting off with the exterior, designers have revised the front end to be distinct between the LS/LT, RS and SS variants. The SS stands out with a ‘flowtie’ open bowtie grille emblem and larger air curtains, package-specific headlights, and a new extractor-style hood, while the RS appearance package includes a unique polished black grille with Galvano Chrome lower inserts, an LED signature bar, and 20-inch wheels. The RS, SS and ZL1 models get dark-tinted lenses.
All models now feature classic-design, four LED oval taillights, which I think looks better than the generic rectangle shape of the original design.
Inside, the updated Camaro gets Chevy’s next-generation Infotainment 3 system. The standard system uses a 7-inch touchscreen, while a larger 8-inch touchscreen is optional. A Rear Camera Mirror and Forward Collision Alert system are now available.
The biggest news is the introduction of Camaro Turbo 1LE, which joins the V6 1LE, SS 1LE and ZL1 1LE models in the Camaro lineup. It is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that — paired exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission — produces 275-hp and 295 lb-ft. of torque.
An upgraded suspension, staggered 20-inch summer tires, Brembo brakes, and a Driver Mode Selector with Sport Mode and new Track mode are also part of the package.
So, what do you think about the Camaro’s new face and butt? Did Chevy’s designers get them right?
