It seems the thirst for more power, more performance, and more pace from cars is unquenchable. And that’s why tuning companies like Callaway exist; with the mission of taking whatever is built with a Small Block V8, and amplifying its abilities beyond the dial. The latest of which is the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 — the fastest road-course Camaro to date — and made it even faster. Enter the Camaro Z/28 SC652.
To do so, the Connecticut-based tuner adds an Eaton TVS2300 LS7 supercharger system that it previously developed for its C6 Corvette Z06 SC652. This bumps total output to exactly 652 horsepower at 6,700 rpm and 620 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm – which are increases of 147 hp and 139 lb-ft, respectively. That’s also 72 hp and 64 lb-ft more than the supercharged Camaro ZL1 and 14 hp and 16 lb-ft more than the supercharged C6 Corvette ZR1. Callaway claims this power increase will propel the Z/28 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and finish the quarter-mile in 11.5 seconds at 124 mph.
Want one? You better be somebody, as the Z/28 SC652 will be limited to just 10 examples, and will cost $19,995, plus the car.
