Speaking with Edmunds, Houlihan explained that the Nurburging track sessions helped engineers determine the best tire, steering and suspension settings for the car – all of which improve more mundane public road driving as well. The engine was the stock standard 6.2L L99 V8 rated at 422hp (314kW) and 408lb-ft (553Nm) of torque.
All 2010 Camaro models, both V6 and V8, feature the latest StabiliTrak stability control system, while the SS also gets the same computer controlled active handling system as the Corvette. Owners will be able to select a special track mode in the SS, which can fully disable the car’s electronic stability and traction control. An additional feature is a special launch control mode for the manual models.
