We’ve written extensively about the tuned up fifth-generation Camaros built by Schenectady, New York–based Redline Motorsports and sold by DeNooyer Performance of Albany, New York, over the past couple of years because, viewed from a historical perspective, they’re the second coming of the Baldwin Motion and Yenko Camaros that today are performance legends.
Now the connection between DeNooyer/Redline and Baldwin/Motion is more than just spiritual. Howard Tanner at Redline will be building brand-spanking new Motion Camaros licensed by Joel Rosen, and the cars will be sold by Dan Carlton of DeNooyer Chevrolet’s DeNooyer Performance Division.
There will be five versions of the 2011 Baldwin-Motion Camaros offered, ranging from 525hp to 800hp, and the cars will carry a warranty ranging from three years/36,000 miles for the base Motion SS-427 Camaro, down to one year and 12,000 miles for the 800hp Motion Phase III 427-SC Camaro Supercar. Pricing will start north of $70,000, and range up to $150,000 for the top-of-the-line car.
The lineup has been dubbed the 2011 Baldwin-Motion Fantastic Five and will include the following (Note: This is just a summary of the models, for the complete list of specs go to www.officialbaldwinmotion.com, which we’re told will be updated with complete information by the time you read this.)
1.) The 525hp Motion SS-427 Camaro — This car gets a new LS7 427 engine (the engine from the Z06 Corvette) plus a Z06 clutch, a high-flow intake, tubular headers, stainless mufflers an MGW short-throw shifter, embroidered headrests, painted Motion graphics, Motion badges and VIN plates.
2.) The 600hp Motion Phase III 427 Camaro — This car gets all of the above plus a custom-ground camshaft, a FAST LSX-R intake manifold, heavy-duty valve springs with titanium locks and keepers, custom Motion wheels (stock size), custom powder coated valve covers, a Phase III hood with heat extractors, a Phase III Eliminator rear spoiler, carbon-fiber-look seat inserts and Motion floor mats.
3.) The 550hp Motion SS 454 Camaro — This version uses the LSX 454 GM Perfomance Parts crate engine with aluminum LS7 heads and an LS7 intake, a custom ground hydraulic roller cam, a high-flow intake and tubular exhaust with stainless mufflers, plus the painted Motion graphics, badges, VIN plates as well as interior enhancements like the MGW shifter, Motion floormats and embroidered headrests.
4.) The 625hp Motion Phase III 454 Camaro — This car uses the LSX 454 Engine with race prepped and ported heads, a custom ground camshaft and includes everything the lower-horse 454 Camaro runs plus one-off Motion wheels as well as the Phase III hood and spoiler.
5.) The 800hp Motion Phase III 427-SC Camaro Supercar — When too much isn’t enough, you can opt for the baddest of the new Motion lineup. This is essentially powered by a supercharged LS7 427, though the engine has to be reworked to handle the boost from the supercharger. It too gets CNC ported heads, a custom ground camshaft, the intake and exhaust treatment as well as a whole host of suspension mods: Pfadt billet rear cradle mounts, Pfadt differential bushings, Pfadt trailing arms and tie rods, Pfadt coil-overs front and rear, Pfadt swaybars, Brembo six-piston front and Brembo four-piston rear brakes. This car will ride on custom Motion wheels plus get the full-on exterior graphics and badging and interior treatment.
