The area of electronic and mechanical power upgrading – which means in clear chip tuning, engine and exhaust system conversions – is field of activities of WIMMER Rennsporttechnik at Solingen since more than 20 years. Under most recent conditions and corresponding to the MOT certification demands, the team around managing director Thorsten WIMMER works in a 2.400 m² workshop, if it matters to make works on engine aeration, exhaust systems, chassis techniques, sports clutches, braking systems or car accessories.
Originally built as a competitor against the Ford Mustang since 1966, the Chevrolet Camaro by GM sees the light of the day in the fifth generation since 2009 in the Canadian Oshawa and it is a typical representative of the so-called pony cars, which exist parallel to the also American vehicle class of muscle cars.
The firm AUDIOVOX from Pulheim, whose brand Magnat is inextricably linked with German sound technology, has optimized this Camaro visibly and audibly and turned into an impressive show car. To increase the engine performance a performance kit by the firm Wimmer racing engineering has been utilized. Due to a software customization, an optimization of the air induction and a stainless steel exhaust system the Magnat Camaro achieves now a performance of 332 kW or 451 hp and has a maximum torque of 596 Nm (at 4,300 r / min). The maximum speed after this power increase is 274 km/h.
