Of course you can teach an old dog new tricks, but why go through all that trouble when you can just bolt on a supercharger and drop in a Corvette engine? Among all the concepts on display in SEMA, Chevrolet introduced a supercharged 1970 Camaro RS, boasting the brand's new LT4 crate engine. Old meets new with this model, which sees modern underpinnings wrapped in a beautiful classic body, taking the Corvette Z06 powerplant and dropping it into a '70 Camaro RS. When all is said and done, the Chevrolet 1970 Camaro RS with its V8 6.2-liter supercharged engine pumps out 650HP a with 650 lb-ft of torque, harnessed with a T-56 Super Magnum six-speed manual trans. A set of shiney 19-inch alloy wheels, special instrument panel, a third gen Camaro interior, and a Hyper Blue Metallic exterior paint finish the effect while LED lamps and a six-point roll cage are nice touches. Now here's the bad news: this was just a one-off, but don't let that stop you from continuing the preview below.
