Late last year, I got the chance to drive one of the sickest classic Ford Mustangs on the planet. The car in questions was dubbed the “Villain,” and was built by CR Supercars out of Oklahoma. It was a perfectly resto-modded Mustang with a ferocious 5.0-liter Coyote engine and a composite shell that dropped the weight of the car significantly. It’s was a mind blowing experience.
That car was built for last year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas. This year, however, with SEMA still eight months away, CR Supercars wants to up their game once more. This is what they’ve come up with — the CR1 Camaro. It’s giving me the chills.
While much of the details on the new car are still scarce – since SEMA is in November – what we can tell you is that the new CR1 is based on a 1969 Chevy Camaro and features the full dry sump LS7 that will pump out many horsepowers.
Additionally, it will have a 6-speed Tremec transmission, Detroit Speed Engineering suspension, Forgeline Wheels, and Wilwood brakes all around to make this thing stop on a dime.
If this car is anything like its Villain predecessor, it’s sure to be one absolutely bad-ass machine.
