The New Company Car… 426hp with 6 Speed Hurst

Posted by admin December - 8 - 2010 - Wednesday

I recently took delivery on my new “Company Car.” My day job as a marketing executive takes me on frequent out of town road trips to visit clients and my old ride, a 1996 Chevy Impala SS was getting a bit ragged at 125,000 miles. I sold the car privately in June and started hunting for a new company vehicle.

After looking around for 3 months I was able to roll 3 separate discount offers into the same deal and place an order for a 2011 Camaro. In a sincere effort to purchase the most performance with limited funds, I ordered a base 1SS Victory Red Camaro with the 426hp V8 engine and 6-speed manual gearbox. To keep the sticker price as low as possible I opted for only 2 options.

Silver Stripe Package
I felt the silver stripes would enhance the base painted alloy wheels

Hurst Short Throw 6-Speed Shifter
This option was recently released by GM so I got one of the first

By keeping the option list on this vehicle to an absolute minimum and taking advantage of every available discount… I was able to acquire this Modern Day Muscle Car for about the same money as a high end V6 Malibu.

To date, this car has been great. The power is about the same as my 1990 ZR1 Corvette and the car is comfortable on 500 mile business trips.

426 Horsepower, 6-Speed Hurst…

What could possibly go wrong?
