Bo Zolland is a much accomplished transportation designer from Sweden who has designed masterpieces in metal and cutting edge composites for everything from Formula One race cars, to super-boats, and hot rods. His latest series of creations re-envision the 1968 Chevrolet Camaro…. and although I didn’t think the original needed much tweaking stylistically, Zolland’s re-working of the classic muscle car definitely brings it into the modern age (if you’re into that sort of thing).
Modifications look to include flared fenders front and back that give it the contemporary and racy wide-body look. And while it’s standard procedure for most modified hot rods to benefit from a chopped down roof line, it would appear that Zolland’s Camaro’s do just the opposite. The doors have been cut down instead to lower the beltline and ensure that the lines of the modified body maintain a stylish flow, effectively making the car’s opening larger and actually aiding in overall comfort and drivability.
The car will also benefit from updated mechanics as well. We hear that it will have a supercharged LS3 V-8 under the hood, and although there’s no official word on the suspension and brakes it’s safe to say both have been updated to take advantage of the increased horsepower and provide stopping power.
If you’d like to see one in person it has just been announced that at least one of these killer Camaros is slated to be showcased at SEMA 2012, and although the show is still many months away it gives us something to look forward to.
Some of the other creations from the Swedish car designer Bo Zolland’s firm, Vizualtech (which has now been renamed Zolland Design AB), include the updated Volvo P1800 and the Jaguar E-Type-inspired Growler, which will see limited production as the Lyonheart K. By: depthsounding
