Dodge’s maniacal Hellcat and the 650-horspower Corvette Z06 may be getting all the headlines lately, but American tuner DD Customs has just tuned a Camaro SS to 468 horsepower and 449 pound-feet of torque. If that’s not enough power to turn heads, the exhaust note surely will be.
DD Customs, which is primarily known for modifying motorcycles, started with an already impressive 2010 Camaro SS and cranked it up to 11. A K&N air filtration system, two-inch fan manifold, and quad exhaust system with flap control was added to the Camaro’s 6.2-liter V8, which took an already-impressive 419 hp and added about a Carice MK1’s worth of oomph.
To steer clear of muscle car stereotypes, DD Customs added a KW Variant 1 coilover and damper kit to the Camaro, which allows customers to lower the height of their pony car from .9 inches to 2 inches, front and rear.
According to DD, the exhaust system “screams loudly enough to freeze the blood in any passer-by’s veins,” though, which fulfills muscle car stereotypes in all the right ways. With four tailpipes measuring 4.5 inches each, there isn’t much reason to doubt DD Customs’ hyperbolic claims.
22-inch Drewske wheel alloys (and massive 305/25 ZR22 tires) were bolted on to increase grip, which feature a red-and-black theme that matches the Camaro’s vampire-esque aesthetic theme. The front lip, cowl, and rear diffuser are all constructed from carbon fiber.
The Camaro SS may have a couple more hubs than the American tuners usually deal with, but they’ve outdone themselves this time. With its modified Camaro, DD Customs took an already formidable pony car and made it even more menacing, powerful, and intimidating. Is there anything that screams “American tuner” more than that?
