Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE) is an American automotive engineering company specializing in high performance automobile modifications, specifically engines and induction systems. Headquartered in Brighton, Michigan the company was founded by and named for NHRA driver John Lingenfelter. Over the decades since its founding, LPE has been creating high performance versions of many GM vehicles, such as the F-Bodies, B Bodies, Corvette, CTS-V, GTO, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Escalade, Denali, SSR, Hummer H2, and Sierra. Furthermore, it has also created performance enhancement packages for the Dodge Viper and Plymouth Prowler. The owner of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering is Ken Lingenfelter. Ken is an avid car enthusiast and owns a large collection of vehicles privately, known as "The Lingenfelter Collection". The collection is put on display and can be visited by the public akin to a museum exhibition, it includes many types of vehicles from all eras of automotive history focusing on performance cars. It includes Corvettes, American muscle, sports, performance, race and exotic cars. The facility that houses the collection is located in Brighton, Michigan.
A 2015 version of the Camaro graces our halls of Classic Auto Mall. This one announces on its badging that it bears the iconic Z/28 designation which means that in stock form is was capable of putting out 505hp, however, our consignor wasn't satisfied with a "mere" 505hp and sent the car to Lingenfelter Performance only 200 miles ago for some serious upgrades in the form of their 660hp package. One of 1801 examples produced for the 2 year model run, this 25,218 mile Z is laying down an asphalt shredding 562hp (not 660hp) at the rear tires and is fully poised to make Mustangs and Challengers cower in fear.
With a mere 25,218 original miles, this beauty is bathed in Pull Me Over Red and shines like a crazy diamond. Adding more bling is the louvered heat extractor hood, body matching fender flares, black rocker skirts, rear window louvers and the black low profile rear spoiler. This car looks great from the front with its bad ass pointy front grille design to the deep inset single headlights, integrated bumper, tow hook, chin splitter, and don't forget the chrome highlighted black bowtie leading the way. Steel panels are all nice and straight and mind their gaps very well. Z/28 badging on each of the fender's float above Lingenfelter badging, which are small enough to be overlooked by most competitors. Looking at the profile the aero design continues with the swept back windshield and oversized blacked out snowflake 19-inch wheels. A racer ready to take on any challengers that come its way.
A swing of the doors and I feel like I'm viewing the 2015 version of the Millennium Falcon with even the door panels giving me the aero design feel, all integrated and smooth lines here. Turning our attention to the passenger compartment, we can slip in dual sporty racing designed buckets, with smooth black leather bolsters and charcoal suede inserts all highlighted by white stitching. No fooling around here as the seats just grab me as I buckle up, get acclimated and get ready to roll. The futuristic Buck Rogers in the 21st century continues with the dash, in particular the instrument cluster which plays on the deep set dual gauge cluster of early days of the Camaro, but takes it a step up by wrapping them with rectangular bezels and a center digital odometer and info display. Seen also is a premium AM/FM/CD audio system with Bluetooth connectivity. In the center a nicely designed console drops down from the dash, and houses a small storage cubby, sport and touring toggles, a suede wrapped shifter and glovebox. As it makes its way past the buckets, it ends abruptly at the 2 plus 2 leather covered rear seats.
Lifting open the hood we are met with a 7.0 Liter LS V8 that has been tended to by the capable and talented hands at Lingenfelter Performance. The block was treated to a Lingenfelter LS7 GT21 Cam By Comp Cams, then the heads were given a Lingenfelter porting, valve job, springs retainers and locks, then finally surfaced for 11.5:1 compression. On the fuel and air end we have a port matched LS7 intake that is fed air by a ported and polished LS7 throttle body. The camshaft actuates Lingenfelter LS7 pushrods, Max-Lift BSR shaft mounted rockers and CTS-VR lifters. Bolted to the back is a TR6060 6-speed manual transmission which sends power back to a 3.91 geared limited slip rear axle.
Underneath is all clean and green, well not actually...it is clean but is finished in a natural beige color with hints of red all mixed with black and aluminum with no rust and structurally sound steel. Keeping the wide 305/30ZR19 rubber planted to the road is an independent coil spring front suspension and in the rear, we see an independent multilink and coil spring suspension. Brembo power disc brakes are all around for stopping and the exhale is handled by American Racing 1 7/8" long tube headers, high flow catalytic converters and dual exhaust with the OEM mufflers.
Like 2 kids taking our new toy out of the wrapper, my partner in crime and I took this car out for a spin and we were not disappointed. Like new condition, it started right up, and we were off. Obscene amounts of power and the factory shifter is nice, and we went through the gears effortlessly. Good handling with the performance suspension. and all is in good working condition.
Just like a favorite toy this consigner took very good care after playing with it, to put it back in its garage, all buttoned up until the next time to play. Attention grabbing Pull Me Over paint on the outside, and nice supple leather and suede on the inside, all with futuristic design, and plenty of conveniences. Add in the performance upgraded from LPE and we have a very serious contender. Take me to hyperdrive!
