Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has been invited to bring a little ruckus to the 38th annual Concours D’Elegance in Plymouth, Michigan.
Ken Lingenfelter himself, also a board member of Concours D’Elegance America, has been invited to show his personal 2007 Bugatti Veyron and 1996 Vector M12. But, Lingenfelter will also arrive with its 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS, which has been supercharged to produce 630 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque.
