LupiniPower Tunes Chevrolet SportUte


Tuner LupiniPower has taken the job for transforming the South African edition of the Chevrolet SuperUte SS. The Chevy was sold until recently in sedan form as the Pontiac G8 in the U.S. Unlike the defunct Pontiac, it continues to sell as the Holden Ute SS in Australia. LupiniPower has pumped up this Chevy SS pickup to an output of 535 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. All this power comes from a supercharged 6.0-liter V8 powerplant that's similar to the one that's in the Corvette ZR1.

The 0 to 60 time on this vehicle is 4.5 seconds and its top speed reaches 175 mph. The tune also provided a suspension tweak for better handling and race-spec front disc brakes and calipers. The price for this El Camino/ Chevrolet SuperUte SS is a cool $91,500 and there's also a full Bilstein suspension and a limited-slip differential that's optional (at extra cost, of course).
