The Chevrolet Camaro SS '00 is a Road car produced by Chevrolet. It first appears in Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec.

In-game descriptionEdit

This description is taken from the description page in GT5. It is transcluded from here.



In 1998, the Camaro has[4] received even further redesigns to its exterior, and the standard engine of the Z28 was switched over to the LS1 350ci aluminum block V8 that had been highly regarded in the new C5 Corvette.

In 1996, just two years before this minor change was implements, two letters once again made their grand appearance on the options list: SS.

At $3999, the R7T options package was by far the most expensive options package of all. It included performance parts such as a ram-air unit that pushed output up to 301 HP from the standard 275, functional hood scoops, a ground effects package and rear spoiler, as well as also including features such as upgraded suspension and exclusive wheels.

The sudden appearance of this new SS was actually not the doing of General Motors. Instead, it was developed by a group known as SLP engineering. Having earlier produced such models as the Pontiac Firebird "Firehawk", SLP Engineering was a hardcore race tuner with strong connections to General Motors that had engineered vehicle parts for stock cars, as well as performance parts for vehicles meant for the street.

With the fairly minor changes that were implemented in 1998, the standard engine for the SS was switched over to the LS1, and its maximum output was improved to over 316 HP. In addition to this, SLP Engineering even went so far as to offer hardcore SS-only options, such as Brembo brakes and a roll cage. The fully optioned SS could indeed be called a true street racer.
