Visual, audio and performance enhancements have given the American muscle car a touch of European class.
In Germany, Magnat is inextricably linked with hi-tech audio gear, and in transforming this Chevy Camaro, has put some of its best-known products to good use. Before installing a state-of-the-art sound system, a performance kit by Wimmer Racing Engineering was fitted, including an ECU remap, stainless-steel exhaust and air induction optimization. As a result, output has increased to 451 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque, with the top speed increasing to 171 mph.
Putting the power to the tarmac is a set of 22-inch Oxigin alloys wrapped in Yokohama Advan Sport tires, while handling is improved via a KW Variant 1 adjustable coilover suspension. Inside, the cabin is upholstered with leather and Alcantara and comes with a new head unit packed with equipment, from navigation to iPhone control, while a 4,400-Watt sound system is controlled from the steering wheel and linked to a permanently installed iPod. Two subwoofers and digital amplifiers have been loaded in the trunk along with custom illumination.
