There is an explosion of 2nd gen Camaros at the 2014 SEMA Show, but none come close to the level of crazy mods the Go Pro “Rampage” 1970 Camaro is displaying. Built at the Roadster Shop [RS] in Mundelein, Illinois, it’s a bit over-the-top for a street car, with more than racecar cues populating the build. This thing has scoops on top of vents on top of heat extractors.

Besides the fenders being made of carbon fiber; the nose, hood, trunk lid, rockers and diffusers are all carbon. Power is from a 750hp LS7 with a carbon fiber Harrop crossram injection and a sideways Jerico 5-speed trans. Why sideways? Because this is so low if it was mounted conventionally it would drag on the ground. A Motec Engineering management system controls the spark and flow.

Inside the RS badging carries through to the seats, and there are machined aluminum bits and brackets throughout. The dash houses a RacePak display, and the containment net adds the finishing touch.
