Lingenfelter Performance Engineering to display forced induction Camaro, Corvette at 2010 Chicago Auto Show
Friday, February 5, 2010
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) will feature two specially designed forced induction vehicles at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 12-21, at McCormick Place. The vehicles will be on display in the Greater Chicago Chevrolet Dealers/Chicago Blackhawks Family Fun Zone booth located in the South Hall.
The Lingenfelter 2010 Camaro SS has been outfitted with the company’s supercharged 427 CID/7.0L LS7 power plant and features Hotchkis suspension components, a CORSA Performance Exhaust system, an upgraded brake system, and custom wheels and interior. Boasting 750 hp, this Camaro was awarded the General Motors Design Award for Best Sports Car during the 2009 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. It also features a Lingenfelter body enhancement package – including a front fascia splitter, rocker extensions, carbon fiber grille, new hood with air extractors, rear deck lip and spoiler – that was designed as a functional addition to enhance the stunning looks of the 2010 Camaro SS.
Also on display at the Chicago Auto Show is the Lingenfelter Twin Turbo Corvette GTR built by Specter Werkes. Featuring Lingenfelter’s powerful 800 hp LS7 twin turbo charged engine, this car has been upgraded with Specter Werkes GTR body enhancements, HRE custom carbon fiber wheels, Stoptech brakes, a Spinneybeck custom interior and a CORSA Performance Exhaust system with GTR-specific tips.
First staged in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show is the largest auto show in North America and has been held more times than any other auto exposition on the continent. This year marks the 102nd edition of the Chicago Auto Show. For more information, visit www.chicagoautoshow.com.
