It wasn’t all that long ago that we were introduced to a Cinncinnati-based custom shop called Spade Creations. The first build we saw of theirs was an NSX build for a doctor that was more meticulous that the brains surgery its owner performed on a daily basis. Since then, their work has truly opened our eyes to various platforms because the work is just that solid. A shining example of their work is this Camaro.
With a high horsepower 6.2L motor under the lid, the new Camaro SS doesn’t need much. However, the motor was fitted with an ATI ProCharger kit and a Magnaflow exhaust. The end result was a 540whp romp on the dyno which should be more than enough to keep the exotics at bay.
Spade Creations decided on a GM Performance body kit in addition to a custom 1.75-inch widebody. The Lambo-inspired side vents were created and the gas door was relocated to the upper fender and the car was fitted with HIDs and LEDs from Umnitza.
To complete the look, they selected a set of massive rollers from TIS. The Modular 16 wheels measure 24x8.5-inch in the front with a staggering 26x11-inch rear wheel rock a 7-inch lip. Up front the Pirelli P Zeros measure 275/25R24 and 295/25R26s on the massive drive wheels. The wheels are so big, that the rear suspension had to be extensively modified to accommodate them.
The entire interior has been crafted by Spade Made with suede and custom fiberglass panels galore. The door panel inserts are custom as are the rear side panels and headliner. The seats have been recovered in Katzkin leather with Barracuda inserts.
The system was spec’ed out and the headunit was replaced with an Alpine INA-W900. The signals are fed out to a Kicker IX5004 4-channel that feeds Kicker RS65.2 components up front with Kicker RS60.2 component sets in the rear. The lows head to four Kicker IX10001 mono block driving four Kicker SoloX 12 subs.
