V6 Camaro vs GT-R

East Texas Muscle Cars in Longview Texas have started developing a turbocharged 2010 V6 Camaro. Their intent is to use the platform to build an American Muscle car to take on Godzilla around the ring. That would be the GT-R’s Nurburgring time of 7 minutes 26.7 seconds also coming dangerously close to the Corvette ZR1’s time of 7:26.4.

East Texas Muscle Cars in Longview Texas have started developing a turbocharged 2010 V6 Camaro. Their intent is to use the platform to build an American Muscle car to take on Godzilla around the ring. That would be the GT-R’s Nurburgring time of 7 minutes 26.7 seconds also coming dangerously close to the Corvette ZR1’s time of 7:26.4.

It’s not as easy as strapping on a turbo and pushing the car to the projected 500 horsepower, the GT-R has a massively unique and sophisticated AWD system that allows it to make the most of its 480hp from its twin-turbo 3.8 liter V6. The guys at East Texas Muscle Cars are addressing this by changing up the suspension and brakes on the car as well.

Mike White from East Texas Muscle Cars told Edmunds “We wanted to do something a little different. We’re seeing a lot of interest in something like this for the V6 Camaros.”

The car will make its debut at the 2009 SEMA Show this year in the Squires Turbo System Booth.
