Powerful Haunches Launch the 2010 Camaro SS

by Martha Hindes

Chevrolet_10camarocoupe_frontview The crimson 2010 Camaro SS sniffs the evening air with its snarly hood scoop. It smells a competitor, and seeks it with halo-encircled headlamps -- the piercing gaze of a predator freeze framing its prey. The rumble of its 6.2-liter, V-8 announces its intentions. Behind the wheel we're along for the hunt, victims of a seductive spell that builds excitement with every shift of the leather-wrapped six-speed manual spurring its 426 horses.

This sports coupe brings back the six-pack abs and bulging biceps muscle car wars after a lengthy abandonment by its Chevy parent. They scored with this sultry revival. (Think of the drool factor of Bachelor Jake showing off his toned and tanned physique while hunting a mate.)

This baby runs on raw nerve and adrenaline. Premium sound with nine speakers and plenty of tech can blow your mind. Hunky 20-inch aluminum wheels over burning rubber have no backup spares, but an air kit for a flat. Despite a few imperfections (a huge rear blind spot), being mesmerized by its sexy bod and the peak performance of a twenty year old makes the $36K price tag worth every penny.
