The all-new 2016 Camaro joins the proud list of Chevy pony cars boosted with insane power, thanks to the new Callaway Camaro SC600. 

Tuner and performance parts manufacturer Callaway earned its reputation building incredibly fast Corvettes, and is now offering a pumped-up Camaro with more than 600 horsepower that can be bought at Chevrolet dealerships, which previously offered factory-built Camaros that topped out at 455 horsepower.

The last-generation Camaro included the ZL1 and Z28 models, with their insane performance at the drag strip and road race circuit. But so far, Chevrolet hasn't introduced a mega-powered version of the crisp-handling, lightweight new 2016 Camaro. So Callaway thoughtfully stepped in, bolting on a 2.3-liter supercharger.

“The 2016 Camaro is a superb car that’s light, nimble and fun to drive,” said Reeves Callaway, founder and CEO of Callaway Cars. “We designed the Callaway Camaro SC600 to deliver an even more driver-focused experience for those seeking even more power.     

The blower protrudes through the hood, so everyone can admire the source of the SC600's extra oomph. The Callaway is available with either an automatic or manual transmission, in either coupe or convertible form, and comes with a three-year warranty.

The base price is $54,290, and Callaway is taking orders now for delivery after production starts some time in the first quarter of the year.
