The 2010 Lingenfelter L/28 Camaro started life as a tool, used to develop performance packages and parts for 5th GEN Camaros. It was used from late 2009 until late 2011 for this purpose. The body had parts from a 4 different cars. It had a supercharged LS3 engine, making 600hp. It had 2 different styles of wheels, and part of the interior was missing. Although it had less than 1000 miles, it was in pretty rough shape when the decision was made to build it for use in the OPTIMA Search for the Ultimate Street Car Series.
The engine was replaced with a 680+hp naturally aspirated 427ci LS7. American Racing headers and Magnaflow mufflers were used for the exhaust. The transmission was replaced with a custom built Tremec, connected to the engine with a dual disc Centerforce clutch. The rear axle was replaced with a Lingenfelter 9.5" unit, equipped with 4.10 gears. The suspension was updated with Ridetech components, including triple adjustable coil-over struts on all 4 corners. Baer supplied the stopping power, with 6 piston calipers and 14" rotors. Forgeline built the 20"X10.5" wheels that are wrapped with Continental tires. The interior was updated with racing seats and belts, 6 point roll bar, and removable steering wheel. After a little accident at Road America, where both the front and rear of the car was damaged, it was updated with 2014 Camaro fascias. Originally dark red, it was repainted a custom blue with pearl white stripes..
Even with a curb weight pushing 4000 pounds, the car has proven to be very competitive. It has won a number of OPTIMA / USCA events around the country. Driver Danny Popp consistently sets the fastest road course times driving this Camaro. On the track, the LS7 engine in music to the ears, running at the 7700rpm redline.
