Mika Salo Gets 600 Hp Supercharged Camaro

Camaro Motorsport just introduced a wide variety of performance parts for the new Camaro, which include a supercharger for the V8 engine. And what better way to advertise it then to deliver the first supercharged Camaro to a motorsport personality like ex-F1 driver, Mika Salo.

“I'm a Camaro fan, I already own a classic '69 Camaro with supercharger. That car delivers well over 1000 hp. With this new car, I have a modern car with ‘retro' looks and stunning performance. A great combination. On top, it has proven to be very reliable as all parts are built according to the highest quality standard,”
said Salo.

Salo, who is preparing for next year’s NASCAR championship in the Unites States, took delivery of a Camaro with the 6.2 liter V8, paddle shift 6 speed automatic and SC 600 Supercharger package, which increases the engine’s performance from 400 hp and 557 Nm of torque to 600 hp and 747 Nm.

“Suspension and brakes have not been modified yet. But when the snow has disappeared, I will sure fit stiffer suspension and different brakes. For the time being this setting is fine, it enables me to drive the car over winter time as well,” he added.

If interested in a supercharged Camaro, you should know that this car is equipped with a Motorsport SC600 package which contains a supercharger, special air intake system, exhaust system, exhaust headers and Dyno tuning of the engine management. The SC600 package costs €17,250.

“The price/performance ratio is just fantastic, there is no car on the market delivering the same horsepower at such a fair price,” Salo said.
