The Craziest Camaro?

Posted August 06, 2010 12:01 AM by CarDomain

Is this the craziest fifth-generation Camaro yet? The LSX 454-ci crate motor is paired with the Turbonetics 91-mm hybrid turbo and good for 1,400-whp and 900-lb-ft of torque. It was also converted to a solid rear axle with ladder bar suspension and back-halved with a custom carbon fiber tub. Some 3,800 man hours and $320,000 later, this is the result.

But will it still run on regular gas? Premium Plus is soooo much more expensive!

Spend 320,000 plus USD on a car you are going to worry about the cost of the fuel?

I know people who spent $56,000+ on a pickup and wont use it because they don't want the new box liner getting scratched up.

I also know someone else who has a industrial plasma cutter that can make over $1000 a day in profit processing stainless steel but he quit using it because the cost of electricity went up about $2 per running day on that machine.

So yes I would expect someone with a $320,000 car to stop driving it because the extra few dollars per tank for premium fuel seems like too much of a waist of money for them.
