If you were quick to look past this unassuming 2012 Chevrolet Camaro SS, you would have missed out on one of the most complete and incredible builds we have ever seen roll through the doors. Simply put, this Camaro is not for the timid or faint of heart. This 5th-gen is a 700hp fire-breathing, track day, monster that was professionally built, driven and raced by Kyle Tucker owner of Detroit Speed Engineering and his team at their headquarters in Mooresville, NC.
The team at Detroit Speed Engineering never does anything halfway. Point in case, this incredible 2012 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS that has earned the nickname of the DSE staff of ""The White Monster"". Take a moment and examine every corner of the car and you'll notice very quickly the inspiration and intention of this build. Kyle Tucker and Detroit Speed's plan was to build this Camaro as a no-nonsense, barely street-legal, race-ready, hot rod that is built to perform at the highest level at any road course or auto cross. All-while still being fully street legal.
Originally used as a test mule for BF Goodrich, today the car is powered by a 7.14L aluminum RHS block that MAST Motorsports machined the LS7 to 436ci and then was built with only the best products including Callies Dragonslayer crank, Callies HD I-beam rods, Diamond Racing pistons, MAST 305 LS7 aluminum heads and ARP fasteners. Kyle Tucker and DSE Engineer Ryan Matthews piloted the car to multiple class wins during the 2013 USCA Optima GT schedule, GoodGuys All-American Sunday winner, a SCCA class winner and graced the cover of the final issue of Camaro Performers in July of 2014.
Anyone familiar with the fifth gen Camaros know that weight is the biggest obstacle facing a driver wanting to compete with the vehicle. Take a moment and look in the interior to see how much was done to lighten up the vehicle. If it wasn't essential for the vehicle operation it was done away with. The body and tunnel was lightened, all four seats removed, custom carbon fiber dash and a Autometer LCD dash system installed, Custom carbon fiber false floors, Carbon Fiber decklid, aluminum hood, aluminum rear diffuser, and a pair of Sparco EVO seats installed with a FIA NASA roll cage.
We haven't even touched on the incredible suspension and stopping power yet, but you can see the complete build specs below contain only the best equipment. And once again, you'll see how no corners were cut, no shortcuts were taken, every aspect of the car was meticulously examined or custom designed. In total over $200,000 was invested in this car and it needs absolutely nothing. If you are in the market for the ultimate performance car that can handle and stop as well as it can accelerate than this is it. Call today! See below for full build specs.
