Shaking Down the 200 MPH Diesel Powered Camaro For the First Time

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/16/2021

When you take a look around the landscape of muscle cars, you won’t find too many obscure combinations under the hood. Most of the time, these cars consist of some sort of setup revolving around a V8 whether it be classic or have a more modern touch thrown into the mix.

Now, for this particular Chevrolet Camaro, it looks like someone got a little bit tired of doing the same old thing over and over again. Therefore, the madmen behind the machine decided to forget what everybody else was doing and throw a completely different power plant into the mix for this one-of-a-kind build.

Instead of a traditional small block, big block, or maybe even some modern LS power, this Camaro, instead, sports a Duramax diesel engine under the hood of the ride. I’m sure that when this thing rolls down the street spitting out that familiar diesel truck grumble, it most certainly turns more than its fair share of heads and has people talking about what exactly it is in confusion.

Check out the video down below from Hoonigan Project Cars that takes you inside of this thing and lets you bear witness to one of the most exciting parts of a build process in the first initial shakedown. After checking out this project that has finally come together, be sure to tell us what you think of such an engine combination in such a classic car. There are a small handful of diesel swapped muscle cars. However, it looks like this one really takes the concept to a new level.

Remember, when all is said and done with the Camaro, it’s slated to achieve something amazing. The crew says that they won’t rest until the car has achieved the astonishing feat of traveling to the 200 mph mark! How can you not love the pursuit!?
