Those of you who liked the restomoded Black Chevelle we featured yesterday will be delighted to know there is a whole bunch of these cars available to drool over at this year’s SEMA show. This is one of them, a 1970 Camaro RS with a modern, 650-hp supercharged 6.2L engine out of the latest Corvette Z06.

This is such a good recipe. You get all the glorious looks of a 70’s Camaro – and it has the superb RS styling package –  and you benefit from the performance and reliability of a modern engine and underpinnings. The only problem is, this car is a concept built for the show and you can’t buy it. You can order it to one of the numerous tuners and coachbuilders operating in America these days, but it’s going to cost you an arm and a leg to build.

At any rate, the 1970 Camaro RS with a heart of gold packs an ungodly 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. That created the need for a more sophisticated chassis, which is why it’s got an independent front suspension with coil-overs and a rack-and-pinion steering system, as well as a four-link rear suspension. A manual gearbox, Z06 brakes, and 19-inch polished aluminum wheels are among the other highlights of this vintage beast.

The highlights of the interior on this car include black, stock-appearing cabin features custom-trimmed seats from a third-generation Camaro and a custom instrument cluster with new gauges that work with the powertrain’s electronic systems.
