Before the bankruptcy of the US investment bank Lehman Brothers, which resulted in a global recession that also made the auto industry difficult to create, the Pontiac brand was responsible for sporty and at the same time affordable vehicles in the GM group. After the brand did not survive the Great Depression in 2008, General Motors decided to bring the Chevrolet SS Sedan onto the market, which was supposed to see the light of day as the Pontiac G8 and was based on a rear-wheel drive platform developed by Holden in Australia for the Commodore VE was developed. The model, which was positioned as a family-friendly performance alternative to a Camaro, was sold 13.000 times in four years of construction.
Tuned variant of the Chevrolet SS Sedan!
Of those 13.000 units sold in the U.S. market, only 100 received a compressor kit from Hennessey Performance Engineering. One of the 600 hp models is now for sale at Streetside Classics. The vehicle with the serial number 004 not only has a compressor kit, but also Goodyear Eagle F1 sports tires and Brembo brake calipers all around. The mileage of the model, which has around 600 hp and 620 Newton meters of maximum torque, and draws its power from a 6-liter V8 gasoline engine with supercharging, is an impressive 88.316 miles (approx. 142.000 km), making the 2014 Chevy SS Sedan can no longer be called dewy. The color is an elegant black metallic, which perfectly preserves the seriousness and understatement of the car.
The performance is extremely promising.
The Chevrolet is definitely more being than appearance, and is definitely not a blender. About the quarter mile it only takes 11,84 seconds, and the sports sedan can achieve a remarkable 402 kilometers per hour on the 187-meter-long route. This makes the Chevy SS Sedan faster than a standard Corvette C7 Stingray. According to our information, the maximum speed is a sealed off 250 km / h. So you can flex your muscles if necessary, although with such a discreet car you don't really need to make a crazy riot. You want to enjoy the comfort of the limousine much more, which makes driving a real pleasure even on long journeys. The standard six-speed automatic transmission, which is equipped with a torque converter, goes perfectly with this. And the kit was also available as an HPE650 variant with 650 horses and manual 6-speed gearshift.
Who would buy a car like this for US $ 37.995?
There are lovers of sporty and at the same time comfortable limousines who want to put one of these in their garage. Due to its short construction time and the relatively low distribution, the Chevrolet SS Sedan is now slowly maturing into a sought-after classic, which is sure to increase in value in the next few years. For car posers who have to brag about wild driving maneuvers in order to prove their driving skills to the environment, the power sedan in its subtle guise is far too good. If you are seriously interested in a Chevrolet SS Sedan, then you have to dare to import a gray from the USA, which is always associated with a certain risk.
