Modernizing classic cars is nothing new in the tuning industry, but the creative minds at Ultimate Auto, whom you may remember from last year’s Dodge Challenger SRT-8 Widebody tune, went the whole nine yards with the 2013 SEMA Show offering, aptly named “Ultimate 67”.
And yes, it’s based on a first generation 1967 Chevrolet Camaro, but the similarities might as well end there as Ultimate Auto, with the support of a number of aftermarket companies, turned the classic muscle car inside out.
There’s a host of exterior modifications such as the hand fabricated, widened rear fenders, sectioned and recessed bumpers, a modern front valance with LED headlamps, custom grille, carbon fiber spoilers, aprons and skirts, custom Borla exhaust pipes and LED tail lamps.
The body itself is painted in a unique BASF R-M Carizzma “Ruthless Red” finish and comes with hand laid carbon fiber accents, while the car rides on bespoke Vellano VKS wheels size 20-inches at the front and 21-inches at the back, wrapped in Pirelli’s 265/30-20 and 355/25-21 P-Zero ultra-high performance tires respectively.
The interior melds components from the 2013 Camaro with hand fabricated composite panels wrapped in Italian leather, and also features a high-end audio system.
At the heart of the tune and under the futuristic engine compartment cover lies a supercharged GM Performance LS9 V8 paired to a Tremec T-56 transmission.
