Chevrolet Camaro Factory Race Car to Be Auctioned Next Month

Back in 1969, Penske’s Chevrolet Camaro Z28 was dominating the SCCA Trans Am series with Mark Donohue behind the steering wheel. That season alone made the blue and yellow Camaro quite famous and led to the development of the concept car depicted above.

Some of you might know this modern replica of the Trans Am-winning Camaro from the 2008 SEMA Show. In case you don’t recall it, this prototype was developed by GM as a factory race car and tested at the company’s Milford test track.

Powered by a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine connected to a Tremec 6060 six-speed gearbox, the Camaro prototype features a carbon fiber hood, trunk lid, door and fenders, Koni shocks, brake upgrades, chassis upgraded, roll cage and Coast Fab mufflers. Not to mention the gorgeous Sunoco Blue and Yellow paint scheme that’s bound to break necks just about anywhere.

This unique piece of machinery will go under the hammer at the Mecum Auctions during the Monterey Car Week next month (August 15-17). The vehicle is estimated to sell for at least $110,000.
