So what do you get when you play Frankenstein with a 1968 Camaro, some turbos, and the All-Wheel-Drive parts from a GMC Typhoon? You get pure awesome in the form of a classic muscle car that is now AWD, and can put down gobs of horsepower!
Marcin Blauth is the mad scientist that made this car happen with his own 1968 Camaro and it’s one of the coolest things we’ve seen in a long time!
Blauth and the team from VTG in Poland have been working on perfecting his Camaro for a few years and have been steadily chipping away at making it faster. The car is powered by a small-block Chevy that’s filled with top-shelf parts and is connected to the Typhoon’s AWD system via a TH400 transmission. Providing the boost for the built small-block is a pair of Turbonetics snails. The car weighs nearly 3,000 pounds, so it’s making well over 1,500 horsepower to lay down its single digit passes.
The Camaro made a trip to the Turboscheune test session recently where Blauth was able to turn the wick up on his creation to see what it could do. After making a few test passes and working on getting the car dialed in, Blauth was able to rip off a new personal best pass of 5.077 to the eighth-mile mark and 7.834 at 176.96 mph out the back door, with a 1.277 60-foot time.
You really have to appreciate the thought and engineering that went into making this car happen and run as quick as it does. Check out the video from VTG that shows Blauth working on making his Camaro fly!
