Default SMS Supercars unveils 620 Camaro



When Steve Saleen launched his new company, SMS Supercars, back in 2008, he announced that he would be expanding his portfolio of vehicles to include the muscle car offerings from Chevrolet and Dodge. First up was the 570 and 570X Challenger, followed soon after by the 302 Mustang.



Now, Steve Saleen'* muscle car trifecta is finally complete, as SMS officially unveiled the 620 Camaro at Barrett-Jackson this week. The car maintains the styling cues featured on both the Challenger and Mustang with an aggressive front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser, butterfly hood and chrome 20-inch wheels. Inside is a custom leather interior, and under the hood, the 6.2-litre V8 has been supercharged to 620 horsepower and 570 pound-feet torque.

In addition to unveiling the car at Barrett-Jackson this week, SMS actually auctioned off the first production example last night. This particular car was also a special "Bondurant Edition" in honor of Steve Saleen'* former racing teammate, Bob Bondurant, and the two decided to donate the proceeds from the sale to two charities: *** Charities and the Make A Wish Foundation of Arizona.

So, how did the car do? Bidding for the SMS 620 Camaro eventually reached the $100,000 mark, meaning the two charities will be getting a significant donation and the lucky new owner just got a nice tax write-off. Did we mention a Bondurant three-day performance driving school is included with the car?

That is a sexy car, but there'* just something about Saleen and Camaros that just don't seem "natural" lol. I loved the 570 Challenger when I first saw pictures of it

Did they put the hood intake slots on the camaro too?? I can't tell but it looks like they did in that first pic. That was BY FAR my favorite part of the SMS challenger.

I like the camaro better than the challenger, and that'* coming from a mopar fan....SMS made the 570 look too much like a 1971 GTX, which to the purist is a disgrace(as much as a 4 door Charger)...novel idea though and performance wise it would be awesome to have...
