MagnaFlow, based out of Southern California, has teamed up with racing legend Mario Andretti to build one mean, clean Camaro for this year’s SEMA Show. The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro will also be auctioned off for charity at an upcoming Barrett-Jackson 2012 Scottsdale auction in Arizona with all the proceeds going towards the Wounded Warrior project.

The Camaro SS comes courtesy of Chevrolet while MagnaFlow outfitted it with their high-performance exhaust and Magnuson supercharger to enhance the Camaro’s performance. Getting the power to the ground is an ACT clutch while the exterior looks the part with a full Street Scene carbon fiber body kit. Keeping it all classy, MagnaFlow opted for a set of 20-inch HRE wheels mated to Pirelli rubber to cover up the Brembo brakes. Suspension upgrades come from a set of Eibach springs.

In order to earn Mario Andretti’s stamp of approval, Andretti himself took the MagnaFlow-built Camaro out to Nashville Super Speedway to take it through its paces. After inspecting and driving it on the track, Andretti approved of the project and will be alongside the Camaro on November 2nd, at the show.

Baldwin Motion is looking to benefit from the resurgence of Chevy‘s new Chamaro, launching five different models with horsepower figures ranging anywhere from 525-hp to 800-hp, all based on the Camaro SS. Dubbed the “Fantastic Five”, the base model is SS-427, next up is the Phase III 427 then the SS-454, Phase III 454 and last but not least, the Phase III 427-SC.

Following the naming designation, each Camaro SS is powered by either GM’s LS7 427 powerplant or their LSX 454 engine. Hit the source to see specs on each and every model, but it’s worth highlighting the Phase III 427-SC that takes the Camaro SS to an impressive 800-hp. Baldwin Motion supercharges a fully built GM’s LS7 427 engine with a 2.8L twin-screw supercharger.  The heads are also completely redone with a custom Redline R3-SC blower camshaft to up high-end horsepower.

Baldwin Motion doesn’t just focus on the horsepower, installing Brembo six-pistons front brakes and four-pistons rear brakes. On the outside custom Motion painted striping, wheels accompany Phase III-SC’s hood and rear spoiler. The front end has also been swapped out for a much more aggressive piece.

Lastly, the interior also receives front and rear seat accents with embroidered headrests with a carbon fiber finish
