While such automakers, as Audi, Aston Martin, BMW, Lamborghini, Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, and Porsche present their vehicles to compete in FIA GT3 racing, the German-built Sareni Chevrolet Camaro GT is to hit the track this year, too. It was intentionally designed by Sareni United which in its turn was founded by Reiter Engineering to field a newly built model in GT3 racing. A real "man car" is to be fitted with 7.9-liter V-8 engine built by Katech in the U.S. Katech's famous for building high-performance racing engines for such cars, as Chevy Corvette C6R in FIA GT1 racing and the Caddy CTS-VR in the SCCA World Challenge. Equipped with high-performance engine, Sareni Chevrolet Camaro GT will produce 650-hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.
Apart from new engine and a Holinger six-speed paddle-shift manual transmission, the car receives a racing suspension designed by Reiter, an added roll cage, and a Teves Racing anti-lock braking system, a massive rear wing, and new front splitter. Moreover, the model features the reduced weight, having about 1000 lbs lost. The muscle car that will compete in GT3 is also a find when it comes to its cost. Priced $254,700, the model is a bargain. Expect SAreni to build 20 Camaro GTs per year.
