Lingenfelter’s New Weapon in Optima Challenge: the “L28 Camaro”

The guys at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering will be toting a brand new weapon to take on the baddest street cars in the U.S.A. at the upcoming 4th Annual OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational. The event has gained a reputation of bringing together the biggest names in the automotive performance industry and some of the most impressive hand-built supercars that America has to offer. You had better be locked and loaded if you want to take on this field of contenders- and Lingenfelter is bringing out the big guns with their 2010 “L28” Camaro.

The L28 Camaro project team was kind enough to share some of the details of their secret weapon with us, and we can tell you the L28 Camaro’s mile-long modification’s list is topped off by an LPE-built LS7 that churns out 681 horsepower and 588 pound-feet of twist, and LPE’s signature body kit for the 5th Gen Camaro. That big, beautiful body will be rolling on a set of 20×10.5 Forgeline wheels, and enormous six-piston Brembos paired with 15-inch two piece rotors ought to stop the Camaro in a hurry, while the LPE/Pedders SportsRyder Supercar Coil-over Suspension package will keep it all firmly planted to the track.

The 2011 Annual OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational will be held on Saturday, November 5th, at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Pahrump, Nevada. We can’t wait to see how this car performs, and for the first time ever, spectators will be allowed to purchase tickets for the event, and will get to see first-hand just how well the LPE L28 Camaro will stack up against its stiff competition.
