An American muscle car in Europe.
It’s not every day that you see an American muscle car like the Chevrolet Camaro SS speeding through German roads. It’s the home of Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and others but this 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS by DD Customs is making a name for itself on the winding roads with more power and a sinister black and red style.
The powerful 6.2-liter V-8 is part of the classic muscle car formula that has made these American cars so popular for decades. The team at DD Customs were given the duty of increasing power on the big V-8 and did so by adding on a new K&N air filter system, two-inch manifold, and a pair of 200-cell catalytic converters mated to a flap-controlled exhaust system with four 115 mm tailpipes. The menacing V-8 pumps out a thundering 468 horsepower and 449 lb-ft. of torque while letting out a classic roar.
Burnouts are a hallmark of muscle cars like the Camaro SS but DD Customs worked to improve grip and handling to tear up those winding European roads. The factory wheel and tire setup was replaced with a new set of Drewske STC-10 double-spoke wheels with red spokes and black rim bed. The 9.0 x 22 front wheels wear 265/30 R22 tires while the rear staggers in with a set of massive 11.0 x 22 wheels and 305/25 R22 tires. Adding to the overall handling dynamics of the Camaro SS is a new KW Variant 1 suspension.
DD Customs decided to keep things subtle yet aggressive with the exterior design of the Camaro SS. The team developed a new carbon fiber front spoiler lip that helps generate downforce along with a carbon fiber cowl. A new carbon fiber rear diffuser makes room for the quad 115 mm tailpipes and also aids in improving aerodynamics at speed. To wrap things up, the black muscle car was given new red stripes along the side sills with contrasting “DD Customs” lettering.
In a land where Porsche, Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz rule, this DD Customs Chevrolet Camaro SS is raising all sorts of hell.
