X275 Camaro Race Car is a $175K Build Up for Grabs in the Marketplace
Camaro is a serious race car with a serious price, but for someone who wants to run X275, this car is ready to rock.
The LS1Tech Marketplace is packed with fourth generation Chevrolet Camaro project cars in all states of drivability. Some are rollers without any drivetrain, some are stockers in need of some love and some are purpose-built race cars. While flipping through the marketplace last week, we came across one fourth generation Camaro race car that might be one of the baddest machines we have seen posted for sale on the forum, packing 2,000 horsepower and offering the ability to cover an eighth-mile track in the low-four-second range.
This wicked 1999 Chevrolet Camaro was posted for sale by “ATLSS”, who didn’t provide much information, but he explained why the car is available.
This $175,000 build was a front runner last year in X275. The car makes around 2,000 hp, and is capable of 4.30s at around 165 mph. I bought the car with intentions of racing it this year, but have had to commit my time to other things. This car needs to go to someone that is going to race it.
PM me with any questions. I can email a build sheet.
See below pictures.
Thanks for your interest.
The Camaro may be geared for the eighth mile, but for those wondering, a 4.30-second eighth mile converts to a quarter mile time in the high-6 or low-7 second range. However, for someone looking to compete in the popular X275 group, all that matters is that this Chevy is built to compete at that level.
Since there are no details spelled out on this 1999 Camaro, we only know what we can see, but we can see enough to know that this car is what the owner claims. Under the pull-off front end is a gigantic Garrett turbocharger that feeds through an equally massive air-to-water intercooler that is seemingly fed from an ice tank in the car.
We can also see that this Camaro has an elaborate safety cage, a race-ready suspension setup, a heavy duty rear differential, some custom aero bits and a parachute.
In most states, this Camaro probably isn’t street legal, but if you want to compete in the X275 class this season, you will be hard-pressed to find a better turnkey option than this one. At $75,000, this is not a car for the faint-of-heart when it comes to opening up the checkbook, but that is a fraction of what the car cost to build so it is, technically, a great deal on a monster car.
