The legendary Chevrolet Camaro of the third generation

The Chevrolet Camaro of the third generation was introduced in 1982 and marked a new era in design and technology for the iconic model series. This generation, produced until 1992, brought many technical innovations, including the first standard fuel injection system for the Camaro and aerodynamic body improvements. The chief designer of the third generation was Irvin Rybicki, who was heavily inspired by European influences. The suspension was also significantly improved, resulting in an overall more agile and sportier driving experience. The Camaro often served as a source of inspiration for many tuning projects and personalized customizations in the 1980s.

The model shown here is a modified Chevrolet Camaro Street Fighter "Obsidian". It is a model car in 1/18 scale produced by Sunstar and tailored to the needs of model car enthusiasts. However, this specific model has been further modified and does not represent the product originally produced by Sunstar. The model is made of Diecast material, known for detailed representations and sturdy feel. The modified version features an aggressive design that perfectly captures the muscular character of the original vehicle.

Technical details and tuning elements

The original Chevrolet Camaro of the third generation was available in various engine options, including V6 and V8 engines with outputs of up to 245 horsepower. The vehicle dynamics were supported by a new suspension system and significantly improved aerodynamics. The tuning community often used the Camaro as a base for custom modifications and performance upgrades. In the images shown, the lowered body and distinctive rims are particularly noticeable. If the rims are from a manufacturer like American Racing, it would be another indication of the high attention to detail in these modifications.
