This one of a kind vehicle, a modified 2011 Camaro convertible, features an incredible 875 horsepower engine produced and tuned to perfection by renowned race car builder Harold Martin that revs with a unique roaring exhaust note. The finishing touch is Grip’s aggressive, low to the ground, aerodynamic body kit that includes: front and rear air dams, rocker panels and a highly styled rear decklid spoiler.
This is the second “Extreme Elegance” vehicle Grip Tuning has developed in partnership with renowned race car builder, Harold Martin. Both, the Martin V1000, a modified Cadillac CTS-V Coupe capable of 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, and the Martin Z875 will be at the Grip Tuning booth located in the Accessories and Restyling section of the North Hall, booth #13047.
Grip Tuning’s innovative styling was first introduced at SEMA in 2005 when the company easily racked up two coveted Chrysler design awards for their interpretive body kit for the 2005 Charger.
Grip Tuning marketing and sales manager, Robert Barnard, says, “We have not exhibited a car at the show for quite a few years. I feel confident that the Grip product will turn heads and be a strong contender for best of SEMA show cars. It is unlike anything you can find including any of the Camaro special edition vehicles and is designed to outperform the Camaro’s ZL1.”
The Martin Z875 Camaro is built for power on demand featuring a 427 CID blueprinted SUPERCHARGED/
Each new engine program is installed on one of Martin’s engine dynamometer test cells at their state of the art engineering center. While testing the engine, the Martin engineering team carefully determines the optimum fuel and spark requirements for the entire engine operating range. Once this task is completed, Martin develops and tests the powertrain calibration and fuel injection to assure a smooth performer across the rpm band.
Other features include a tubular stainless steel high performance free flowing exhaust that broadcasts power with a roar, and 20” luxury BBS black painted wheels mounted to high grip Toyo Proxes 4 performance tires.
Elegance is further defined with a custom painted engine cover, red and black premium leather interior and Grip’s body style kit made of proprietary composite materials for added strength and durability.
“This is the second vehicle to be introduced in the last 30 days of our Extreme Elegance line,” says Harold Martin, president of Martin Technologies. “The Martin Z875 is part of a growing stable of vehicles being build under the Extreme Elegance brand. Each has the potential to be modified for specific performance enhancements based upon the client’s preferences. Our goal is to build vehicles that synthesize speed and style. Our partnership with Grip provides some of the best exterior styling we’ve seen for today’s late model luxury and hot rods. Both of these vehicles provide the ultimate in comfort while pushing the envelope for performance.”
