LINGENFELTER PERFORMANCE ENGINEERING
TA COMBINES MUSCLE OF THE PAST WITH TECHNOLOGY OF TODAY
DECATUR, Ind. – Creating 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 TA.
The LTA 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 TA’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 LTA in
handling that raw power, the car also features a Lingenfelter 6-bolt
LS9 twin disk flywheel and clutch assembly and heavy-duty Driveshaft
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
A custom-designed CORSA
Performance stainless steel exhaust provides even more torque for
the LTA 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.
