Well-known in the tuning community for building high-powered machines of all breeds, Artisan Performance has decided to take on the 2010 Chevy Camaro. And if the renderings are any hint, we’re in for a treat.

And yet as salivating a package as it looks from the outside (with 1.5-inch fender flares), the Artisan Performance SA-600 Camaro SS gets extra-tasty under the hood. Or does it?

Much like on the company’s burnt-copper Lexus IS-F from last year’s SEMA Show, the Camaro features a set of rear-mounted turbochargers. Two GTK350 turbos, as well as an intercooler setup, exhaust system and ECU tune help the Camaro SS to pump out 600 ground-pounding ponies from its 6.2-liter V8. Artisan hasn’t released torque numbers yet, but they’re sure to be equally impressive.

To round out the package, Artisan will equip its SA-600 Camaro SS with iForged wheels in a 21-inch front and 22-inch rear fitment. Inside those rollers you’ll find an SSBC big brake package with 14-inch rotors.

Artisan’s SA-600 Camaro SS will also include many other custom details and a bespoke interior… at a cost. The whole package will run $69,000.
