Just try and guess who's behind this.
The all-new Camaro ZL1 was unveiled only a few days ago and already a tuning company has taken a wrench to it. Callaway has beefed up the already monstrous engine sitting inside of the ZL1 so that it makes 740 horsepower. As a reminder the “stock” supercharged 6.2-liter V8 makes 640 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque. The new Callaway Camaro has been aptly named the SC740. If you’ll remember it was only a few weeks ago that the company debuted the SC610 based on the Camaro SS. What a time to be alive.
Callaway managed to add 100 horsepower to the ZL1 by adding a new supercharger, its own GenThree TVS2300. Like in the SC610 there’s also a Callaway TripleCooled intercooler system as well. Callaway hasn’t released any images of the SC740 but it will reportedly have a new hood so that it can fit that beefy new supercharger. The hood will also allow the supercharger to poke through just a bit. It probably won’t be anything like Dominic Toretto’s Charger but it should still be badass. The Callaway SC740 will be offered with both a six-speed manual and GM’s new 10-speed auto. We don’t know how much this bad boy will cost but expect it to be pricier than the SC610 which ran $54,290 for the entire car and $16,995 for the kit alone.
The ZL1 has a base price of $60,000 which means the SC740 will probably land somewhere in the $70,000 range. That’s a lot of coin for a Camaro but 740 horsepower is, well that’s a lot of damn power. Hellcat, your move. Also, note that the white Camaro pictured here is the SC640 and not the SC740. We'll be sure to share photos of Callaway's latest creation when we get them.
