It’s an ongoing debate even today: classic muscle, or modern day hustle? CR Supercars says why not both? Fresh off the success of the 1968 Villain Mustang shown at the 2014 SEMA show, the CR1 Chevrolet Camaro applies the same superb formula for excellent results.
The basis of the build is a 1969 F-body Camaro, and CR Supecars outfits it with the high-revving LS7 engine, a six-speed Tremec transmission, Detroit Speed Engineering suspension, Forgeline Wheels, and Wilwood disc brakes. The appetizing package has already warranted some attention, and the company has announced it has received its first pre-order for the CR1 Camaro.
After its debut in Las Vegas, the first production CR1 Camaro will be delivered to its lucky owner in the Buckeye State, painted in a classic Hugger Orange hue.
Jason Engel, owner of Classic Restorations, is excited to be responsible for these vehicles, fusing iconic muscle car looks with modern day speed, comfort and reliability.
“We are excited to offer customers the opportunity to order customizable 1968 Mustang fastbacks and 1969 Camaros,” said Engel. “For years, I had people ask me to handbuild them tailor-made cars and now I’m able to offer my customers Mustangs and Camaros that can be built to their exact specifications. We also hope that with the addition of the CR-1 to the CR Supercars lineup we will be able to introduce the Classic Recreations name to a whole new audience.”
We look forward to seeing the CR1 Camaro in the flesh this coming Fall in Las Vegas. For now, we may have a new wallpaper for our computers to stare at.
