One of the latest press releases from General Motors talks of a street legal race machine that boasts a 700 hp supercharged LS9 engine, a reengineered drivetrain and a six-piston Baer brake system. These are some of the highlights that come with the NeSmith Storm – a special dealer-tuned Chevrolet Camaro SS that was featured on the cover of the 2011 GM Performance Parts Catalog. However, one very important detail seems to have been left out of public knowledge in the presser: the price. Today, we would like to share with you what we have discovered.
After contacting NeSmith Chevrolet’s own Steve Gordon, he informed us that those seeking one of these super Camaros would have to make a six figure decision, as the Storm commands an MSRP of $115,999 – roughly the same price of a small house. He also pointed out that all of these fixings on what was once a standard Camaro SS ends up voiding GM’s 5 year/100,000 mile Powertrain warranty. Instead, the vehicle is covered with the dealership’s own 3 year/36,000 mile warranty – which is significantly reduced compared than the original… but then again, this beast isn’t meant to be a daily driver.
Though the NeSmith Storm is more expensive than a Corvette ZR-1, it’s much more exclusive. According to the video provided below, only 25 of them are planned to grace the Earth.
