Back in 2009, recently-bankrupt General Motors still made its way to the annual SEMA Show, where it rolled out the red carpet for several tuners who worked their magic on the then-new 2010 Camaro. When it came down to it, all the other Camaro tuners had to tip their hat to Neil Tjin and the Tjin Edition Camaro, with its supercharged 6.8 liter V8 and smooth, elegant lines. No wonder it was unanimously voted as the best GM vehicle at SEMA 2009.
And now has been placed up for auction on eBay, item number 281176772976, with the high bid of $31,100 failing to meet the reserve. For a custom show car that easily has three times that amount in work, it’s a deal that may be too good to pass up.
The Tjin Edition Camaro is part of the first wave of modified Camaros, before the potential of the LS3 had really been tapped into. Even so, the 415 cubic-inch stroker engine still managed to kick out 608 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque at the wheels, thanks to a Vortech supercharger. On top of that, a Nitrous Express system adds even more power.
The mods don’t stop there either; an air-lift suspension allows for an adjustable ride height, and the custom bodykit and paint job ensure there is no other Camaro on the planet that looks like it. With just 5,100 miles on the odometer, it is barely broken in too, though it probably has more value as a collector car than anything else. Would you add this award-winner to your collection? And if so, at what price?
