LS6 power, carbon fiber bodywork, #23 out of 30 built, and immaculately preserved with just 720 miles. This is a car that is as special as the man.

Built by the legendary Chevrolet dream car factory GMMG and sold only through Berger Chevrolet, this limited edition Camaro packed every trick they knew about going fast in a GM car. GM engineers were involved in the project, including prototyping it in the GM studios, so it has a very OEM look and feel and an incredible level of fit and finish. The body is augmented by flared fenders and a custom hood, all of which were rendered in composite materials to shave weight. The front fascia is a bit more aggressive and there’s a three piece wing out back that actually produces useful downforce. The body was smoothed and painted Sebring Silver, a traditional Chevy performance color, and topped with custom Dick Harrell graphics that emulate the look of his drag cars throughout the ’60s and ’70s. It also happens to be one of the best-looking Camaros we’ve ever seen, and with just 720 miles, you know it’s in factory fresh condition. If there’s a late-model F-body worth collecting, this is most definitely it.

Most of the 30 Dick Harrell Edition Camaros had stock interiors, but with the blessing of Dick’s daughter, Valerie, this special Camaro received custom black and white houndstooth cloth inserts in the sport seats, a look that probably should have been standard equipment. They also added special embroidery on the headrests and custom Dick Harrell floor mats to make it look special. You could get either transmission in these special cars, with this one sporting a Hurst-shifted 6-speed manual, which is obviously the one to own. White-faced gauges give the instrument panel a slightly different look, and there’s a special plaque on the dash that signifies this as a limited edition Berger Supercar. It’s in awesome condition, obviously, and it still carries all of the factory equipment including A/C, power windows and locks, a tilt wheel, and cruise control, not to mention an AM/FM/CD stereo that you’ll probably never use. It all works properly, making this a supercar you can use every day if you want.


The heart of the Dick Harrell Edition is a 427 cubic inch LS6 powerplant developed for use in the C5R race cars. Making 630 horsepower and 575 pounds of torque, it’s outrageously fast, but thanks to careful tuning, it’s no more difficult to drive than a stock LS1 Camaro. It’s an easy fit in the Camaro’s engine bay, since externally it’s no different than a stock LS motor, although the aluminum intake is a dead giveaway. You’ll note that it’s been signed by all the important folks involved with the project and comes complete with special decals and red valve covers so you know it’s something special. The stock 6-speed was retained and doesn’t seem to mind the horsepower, and there are 4.56 gears out back that make it scary fast off the line, just like Dick himself. The suspension was lowered, the brakes are from a Z06 Corvette, and it sits on special powdercoated Fikse wheels that are unique to this car. Sticky Goodyear F1 Supercar tires ensure it launches and handles properly.
