Finale Speed’s 1969 Chevrolet Camaro also rocks a thoroughly refreshed interior

Finale Speed unveiled its latest 1969 Chevrolet Camaro at the SEMA Show, and what sets this ’69 Camaro apart from the rest is its striking tinted candy red carbon fiber exterior finish.

In keeping with its tradition of crafting entirely new lightweight carbon fiber bodies for Camaro projects, Finale Speed meticulously sanded and primed the carbon fiber panels before applying a custom-mixed BASF Candy Red paint. Colored carbon fiber finishes, popularized by car manufacturers like Pagani and Koenigsegg, have now become a perfected art in the aftermarket world.

However, this Camaro offers more than just a beautifully painted carbon fiber exterior. Gone is the standard powertrain, replaced by a potent LT4 6.2-liter crate V8 with a modified supercharger, mated to a Tremec T-56 six-speed manual transmission featuring a twin-disc clutch.

With 650 horsepower under the hood, all that power is efficiently channeled to the wheels through a Ford 9-inch rear end and a limited-slip differential. The engine’s breathability is ensured by a stainless steel 2.5-inch exhaust system, complete with new headers and custom MagnaFlow mufflers.

Additionally, Finale Speed has equipped the Chevy with Forgeline wheels, measuring 18×10 at the front and 18×12 at the rear, all wrapped in high-performance Toyo R888R tires. While the specific weight of this customized Camaro hasn’t been disclosed, its remarkable speed necessitated the installation of six-piston Wilwood brake calipers at the front, complemented by 14-inch slotted, cross-drilled rotors, and four-piston Wilwood calipers at the rear, matched with 14-inch rotors. The car’s handling benefits from oversized front and rear sway bars and Fox coilovers.

A Unique Blend of Style and Speed

Inside the vehicle, numerous enhancements contribute to a refined and comfortable driving experience. The interior boasts a pair of new seats equipped with four-point belts, an Alcantara-trimmed console, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a four-point rollbar for added safety, an Alcantara headliner, and a carbon fiber rear seat delete. Entertainment and audio quality are not compromised, featuring an Alpine head unit along with Focal speakers and a Focal subwoofer to complete the package.
