Alpine Camaro Trunk

The trunk lid is home to a single Alpine TME-S370 6.5-inch LCD monitor that displays the image from an Alpine HCE-C300R Active Rear View camera system. The HCE-C300R is unique in that not only does it act as a wide-screen backup camera, but it incorporates motion detection technology, putting a red box around an object that is moving in the camera image while providing an audible warning that there is a moving target. The video signal from the HCE-C300R is also displayed on the screen of the INA-W910 when the vehicle is in reverse.

 

To beef up the performance and styling of the car to match the audio install, a Turbonetics 76mm T-Series turbo kit running at 6 pounds of boost was installed. This kit brings the output of the 6.2L LS3 motor to an impressive 560hp and 537 lb-ft of torque. To make sure this puts a smile on the driver’s face, we should note that these numbers were measured at the rear wheels. A MagnaFlow exhaust system assists in this impressive increase in performance and gives the car a decidedly aggressive sound. Engine parameters can be monitored by a Zeitronix data logging system that was molded into the leading edge of the center console.

The Camaro rolls on 22-inch HRE Monoblock P40 wheels that are wrapped in Toyo Proxes rubber. Keeping the car planted are Pedders Extreme Xa coilovers and a massive 15-inch StopTech brake kit helps burn off speed when required. The factory hood and front bumper were replaced with new units from ACS Composites. A Fesler Series 2 body kit brings the car even closer to the ground and adds an aggressive stance. Once all the body parts were in place, MV Designz treated the car to the blue, silver and grey paint job. Final details on the car include a Viper 5902V two-way remote start and security system and billet aluminum door sills from Defender Worx.

 

The result of the Camaro build is a testament to the planning that was put into the project before it even began. Clean and elegant details combine with advanced functionality and monstrous performance in all aspects. The Camaro represents a slight departure from Alpine’s history of over-the-top CES builds, but retails the masterful execution that makes Alpine cars a destination for CES attendees year after year.
