OUSCI competitor Velocity Camaro to hit the block at Barrett-Jackson

The Barrett-Jackson Automotive Auction is one of the nation’s premiere auctions, providing products and services to vehicle owners, collectors and enthusiasts. Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2011, the Barrett-Jackson auction is expected to sell more than 1,200 vehicles, attract more than 200,000 visitors and raise millions of dollars for local charities.

The OPTIMA Batteries team is excited that this year’s auction will feature a former OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational (OUSCI) participant vehicle… the one-of-a-kind RideTech Velocity Camaro, which will go up for bid on Saturday, January 22 on Speed Network.

The Barrett-Jackson crew has really gotten behind the Velocity Camaro by placing it in a primetime Saturday evening time slot, so be sure to tune in to the Speed Network during primetime and look for this vehicle on Lot #1278.

The Buildup

This car started off as an incredibly straight survivor car. The six cylinder has been replaced by a new LS2 engine that is dyno proven for 650HP. It has a set of newly-developed 2" tube headers from Dynatech and the just released Front Runner drive system from Vintage Air. The fuel, ignition, and transmission electronics are controlled by a Big Stuff 3 EFI system and MSD electronic ignition. The transmission is a ZF 6 Speed.
