GM Performance Parts 427 SS

The 427 Camaro Back With Its Version Of THE 2010 CamaroJust as the COPO option gave enthusiasts a back door to performance in 1969 with its factory 427cid engine, GM Performance Parts carries on this legacy with its hopped-up version of the 2010 Camaro SS. Starting, of course, by supplanting the LS3 for an LS7, GMPP was intent on creating the wildest fifth-gen to date while staying true to the Camaro's historic roots. Lucky for us, achieving extraordinary performance is possible while making so few deviations from the factory equipment, or in this case, GM products-albeit from the pages of the GMPP catalogue.

The GMPP Camaro was originally part of an early run, and is actually not a production version so-to-speak, but "all of the components are production design," says GM Performance Division Project Manager Mike Copeland. It was originally black, and was repainted a more eye-catching red aside from the hood and rear panel, which were painted flat black in an ode to old school hot rodding. That of course is balanced nicely with the very new school Brembo 6-piston front and 4-piston rear brake upgrade to fill up the one-off 20-inch hoops. Meaty Pirelli P Zero 255/40R20 and 305/65R20 rubber accompanies them.
