The “Fireball 700” sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is a 720-horsepower savage, ready to pounce on Dodge Hellcats, Ford Shelby Cobras and GT350 Mustangs. With capabilities like that you’d expect a hefty price tag, but no, the Fireball Camaro can be had for under $50,000, all in.
This deal is only available through Eskridge Chevrolet, which is located in Guthrie, Oklahoma. There is currently a white 2016 Camaro SS with just under 2,300 miles listed on the website with a price tag of $51,900 – contradictory to the “less thank $50K” sales point, but whatever. At any rate, it’s still a good price for a Camaro with over 720 horsepower that apparently also comes with a lifetime engine warranty. Other lifetime amenities include oil changes, alignment checks, multi-point inspections, pre-vacation check-ups, and a 10 percent discount on all accessories.
According to LSXMag, the Fireball 700 Camaro features custom Fireball Niche wheels, and Fireball stitching on the interior and badging on the exterior. The added power comes from a ProCharger 1200 CFM supercharger, and either a 91 or 93 octane tune.
If you’re skeptic, rest assured, Fireball has a bit of experience with the 2016-2017 Chevrolet Camaro. They’re the same guys who ran the first recorded 9-second Camaro Six ever, and were able to get the car in the low 10s with a retune, stickier rubber, and a 150-shot of nitrous. The fact that it’s approved by AZN and Farmtruck from Street Outlaws gives one added assurance.
We would really like to see how the Fireball 700 Camaro stacks up against the 2017 Camaro ZL1, or offerings from that of Hennessey Performance and Lingenfelter. What’s your guess as to what would be the better option? Aside from straight-line performance, there’s also handling as well as reliability to consider. Not to mention resale value, or any other factor you can think of. Sound off in the comment section below.
