Weekend Wallpaper: Autohaus Motorsports #46 Chevy Camaro GT.R

By | February 6, 2012

Autohaus Motorsports #46 Chevy Camaro GT.R

This is the Autohaus Motorsports #46 Chevy Camaro GT.R, which races in Grand-Am Rolex GT series.

Starting life as a 5th Generation Camaro SS, Pratt & Miller modifies the body and Katech Engines modifies the GM LS3 6.2L naturally aspirated V8 to create a race reliable engine producing a spec ~450 hp, coming on at 2,800lbs.

Much has been said about the “pony / muscle” cars of old, and much has been accomplished on the track with these cars. What are you thoughts on this current “revival” of these class cars?

That’s an awesome picture, but I think of all the Grand-Am cars there are, the Camaros are the ugliest. 

I also think GM should make all production Camaros 2800lbs….

If you think the Camaros are ugly, wait until you see the Pontiac GTOs in Grand-Am… oh, and BMW M6s….and the World Challenge GT Aston Martins (THAT was a disgrace – NOT to be confused with the ALMS Aston Martins)

Hey, hey, hey now. The title of ‘Ugly Aston Martin’ is reserved only for Cygnets. I’m going to need to see a picture of the World Challenge GT Astons to verify your claim. :)

I agree with AJ on the Cygnet. Unless those were what Aston was running in the WC GT…..

The M6 is so friggen ugly, but in a lovable “you should not be here silly car” sort of way.

A lovable “you’re the most pointless car in the world and you’re too heavy to be worthy of the M badge” kind of way.
