JAY LENO CAMARO RUNNING ON PEDDERS AT SEMA

If you have followed our threads, you will know that we are a preferred vendor for GM, and have had the honor of working extensively with GM on the 2010 Camaro and other projects in the past and are working on future ones as well. This is a great honor for Pedders! The engineers we are working with are seriously first class and is a honor to work with them!! The install of this twin turbo is beyond good!. It is flawless and perfect. The guys at Milford are SERIOUSLY beyond perfect!!

GM made a very special Camaro for SEMA for Jay Leno. Guess what suspension system is on the the Queen of the Show? PEDDERS!!!!!! In fact, EVERY GM Camaro that GM made is riding on Pedders!!

Here is the data that was released tonight that we were present at the press introduction:

Powered by a twin-turbocharged version of the 3.6L direct injected V-6 that is standard in Camaro LS and LT models, Leno’s Camaro blends high performance with surprising efficiency in a racing-ready package. A pair of Turbonetics T-3 turbochargers blows through a custom air-to-air intercooler, force-feeding the engine about seven pounds of boost and lifting its horsepower level to about 425. That’s about 40 percent greater than stock and in normal driving (when the turbochargers aren’t making boost), there’s virtually no penalty in fuel economy over the non-turbocharged 3.6L engine.

“Jay’s Camaro offers style, performance and efficiency in a big way,” said Dewar. “It delivers the power of a Camaro SS on demand, but with the fuel economy of a V-6.”

Supporting upgrades for the turbo system include a larger-capacity Be-Kool radiator and a custom exhaust system, as well as a Centerforce-supplied clutch and pressure plate for the six-speed manual transmission. The tubing for the turbo system is powder-coated blue. The powertrain was designed to deliver consistent, controllable power for both the street and race track. In fact, road racing was a primary mission for the car during its development.

Additional vehicle also support its racing intent:
• Brembo six-piston brake package
• Pedders coil-over lowering kit
• New front fascia with custom fog lamps and integral brake cooling vents
• Air extractor-style hood

The exterior styling of Leno’s car is the most radical of all the Camaro concepts at SEMA. The front fascia and hood are one-off creations as are the unique upper and lower grilles and the ground effects package (including a rear diffuser). The heritage-inspired vent styling in front of the rear wheels has been replaced with functional brake cooling ducts.


Here are some pictures with Jay Leno introducing his Camaro:

A functional vent on the rear quarterpanels? See, that wasn't so hard GM! Sheesh, why couldn't they have made that work in production? I hope we can buy those one day.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

It's cool that it's functional, but imo, it needs to be bigger. It looks weird being so small.
