2005 Baldwin-Motion 540 Camaro SuperCoupe news, pictures, specifications, and information

The soul-stirring two-seat SuperCoupe's hand-crafted steel body, penned by Kris Horton working wîth Joel Rosen and executed by Time Machines, Inc., Hudson, Florida, is functionally styled for maximum appeal and performance. Engine layout is front/mid and its aluminum big-block is set back 13 inches.

Fully tubbed and lowered, it incorporates a proprietary 2x3-inch tubular steel backbone/spine chassis running through the console and welded to the body. The result is an incredibly rigid platform, engineered for maximum performance.

Styling details include tastefully flared fender wells, widened rear fenders wîth functional brake cooling scoops and an extended hood wîth an L-88-inspired scoop. Finished in MOTION Red, the body is highlighted by traditional Baldwin-Motion badging and striping.

The prototype SuperCoupe is powered by an all-aluminum 700-hp Merlin/Motion big-block built by Bill Mitchell. The blueprinted and dyno-tuned 540-cubic-inch powerplant has a World Products aluminum block wîth 4.50-inch bore, 4.25-inch stroke and 4.840-inch bore spacing. Eagle 6.535-inch H-beam rods, forged crank and 10-to-1 forged pistons are utilized. The roller-cammed engine is topped off wîth a Cross-Ram fuel injection system custom-built by Jim Kinsler for the SuperCoupe. Polished alloy MOTION-badged valve covers are rare original NOS parts.

Powertrain details include a specially-prepared Tremec TKO five-speed and a fully-independent rear wîth a Dana 44 Posi and hardened steel high-torque axles. Suspension is four-wheel independent wîth polished unequal length control arms and toe-in control links and fully adjustable coil-over shocks and sway bars. Steering is rack and pinion.

Stopping power is supplied by MOTION signature Baer Claw Extreme-Plus brakes wîth forged six-piston Sport calipers and 14-inch cross-drilled rotors front and rear. The SuperCoupe rides on Motion-inspired Bonspeed wheels.

The SuperCoupe's interior is completely hand-crafted and features a pair of unique Baldwin-Motion-logo, leather-upholstered six-way power seats, signature gauges, Hot Rod Air and hand formed dash and center and overhead consoles. Plus the latest sound and electronic entertainment systems from Sony.

Time Machines, Inc. coachbuilt the prototype Camaro SuperCoupe in its facility in Hudson, FL.
