ROAD TEST: 2010 Hurst Performance Vehicles Camaro

The first thing you notice when you see the car is its sheer size.  Measuring over 190 inches in length, it’s 7 inches longer than a GT-R.  It’s also an inch wider, which helps keep the passenger and driver well spaced – no elbow bumping here.

Though there is no arguing this is a very large vehicle, its lines are very well proportioned and it just flows.  Mike and I kept talking about how much we liked the way the car looked, but wished we could proportionally shrink it by 10%-15%.  Not only would a size reduction help around town maneuvering, but the Camaro could definitely use a ittle help in the weight department.  According to Chevrolet the Camaro 2SS has a curb weight of 3,840 lbs, but to GM’s credit, it is spread out evenly throughout the car.  The new Camaro has a 52/48 front-to-rear weight distribution.

To help keep all that weight under control Hurst Performance Vehicles equips the Camaro with a set of HRE one piece billet wheels, made especially for Hurst, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sports.  The fronts use 255/40/20’s while the rears finish off its aggressive stance with beefy 305/35/20’s.  Yes, they’re dubs, but the wheel wells are HUGE so the 20 inch wheels fill them perfectly.

Behind the wheels you wont find anything from Hurst, but you will find some goodies from the GM parts bin – Brembo brakes at all four corners from a Corvette.  The rotors are almost as big as the rims on some of our race cars, 14×1.26 up front and 14.4×1.1 out back to be exact.
