Lingenfelter 455 T/A Concept !!!

– Press Release


vehicles with astounding performance capabilities and
“stop-in-your-tracks” curb appeal is nothing new for
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE), and they’ve done it once
again with their newest concept car the Lingenfelter T/A.
Readied for its debut in the Nitto Tire booth at the 2009 Specialty
Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show at the Las Vegas Convention
Center, Las Vegas, the Lingenfelter T/A utilizes “all the styling
and muscle from the past combined with the technology and elegance of
today,” according to Ken Lingenfelter, owner of Lingenfelter
Performance Engineering.The vehicle, a modified 2010 Camaro with exhaustive engine and
performance refinements as well as custom-molded body styling, harkens
to the muscle-heavy ‘70s cars so beloved by enthusiasts.”Lingenfelter Performance Engineering designed and built this
vehicle with one goal in mind – to celebrate, in a most pronounced
manner, America’s muscle-car heritage,” said Lingenfelter.
“Just one look at its spirited design is all it takes to realize
Lingenfelter knows power. And a turn of the key confirms that fact as
all 650 horses start running.”First and foremost is the Lingenfelter T/A’s power plant – a custom
Racing Head Service (RHS) aluminum engine block with an impressive 455
cubic inch displacement. It features 4.155″ bore Diamond 11.5:1
compression ratio pistons and a 4.200” stroke Lunati forged
crankshaft. Lingenfelter Performance Engineering-brand CNC ported and
polished LS7 heads and an LSX FAST 102 intake finish off the engine,
which produces 655 hp and 610 ft.-lbs. of torque.To assist the Lingenfelter T/A in handling that raw power, the car also
features a Lingenfelter 6-bolt LS9 twin disk flywheel and clutch
assembly and heavy-duty Driveshaft Shop halfshafts.Body enhancements to the Lingenfelter Performance Engineering concept
vehicle include a dramatic new hood with a shaker scoop and blue keyed
stripe. A new front fascia borrows from the vehicle’s inspired muscle
car heritage, and incorporates custom head lamps, grille and turn
signals for authentic detailing. The car’s fender has a functional side
extractor scoop and the rear quarter has a leading edge wheel flair.
Dramatic details in the back again point to the vehicle’s 1970s roots.
Rear corners of the car have been extended nearly 4-inch with a wrapped
down stand-up spoiler. Custom-created taillight housings nicely
complement the package.

Wheels are custom designed 20-inch Honeycomb’s with bright brushed
aluminum details and are shorn with Nitto Tires in size 275/40ZR20
fronts and 315/35ZR20 rears.

A custom-designed CORSA Performance stainless steel exhaust provides
even more torque for the Lingenfelter T/A concept vehicle, which is
finished in an icy, bright white with an electric blue stripe running
from front to rear.

Finally, to complete the muscle car experience, bright blue woven vinyl
seat inserts and metal turned instrument panel accents highlight the
interior. And Lingenfelter badges, indicating the vehicle’s authenticity
as a certified Lingenfelter creation, adorn the exterior.
