The rebirth of the American muscle car was about as ill-timed as it could be given the industry's global meltdown in the past 12 months, but somehow General Motors’ new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro has managed to be a stellar performer--both on the track and in showrooms. Now, American performance workshop Hurst has announced that it will auction its first modified version of the Camaro prior to the 2009 SEMA Auto Show in November.

Along with today’s announcement, Hurst has also released the first few tentative details for its new Camaro Performance Series along with this preview rendering.

The first example will be finished almost completely in black, broken only by silver and red stripes. Other details include 20-inch forged aluminium T-2 wheels, a short-throw shifter, rear wing-spoiler, and unique badging.

Performance modifications will include an Eibach suspension set-up, a high-flow Magnaflow stainless-steel exhaust and a K&N intake. Being built by Hurst, you can bet there will be some much more serious mods appearing on the car once it’s ready.

The Hurst prepped Camaro will be auctioned on eBay Motors during the two weeks prior to the show. All proceeds are to benefit the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, a program that fosters industry leadership by supporting the education of students pursuing careers in the automotive aftermarket.
