The 1970 Camaro gets a new lease on life, evolving into a contemporary marvel.
Following their acclaimed modifications to Joe Rogan's Plymouth Barracuda Sickfish 2.0, the renowned Roadster Shop of Illinois is back with another innovative marvel: the "Road Rage Camaro." This exceptional build is grounded in the muscle car's second-gen F-Platform.

Initially unveiled at the 2018 SEMA show and drawing inspiration from the shop's earlier Rampage Camaro project – which has since taken on a racing persona – this street-ready version emphasizes smooth, user-friendly performance. Roadster Shop's Josh Hennings extols the Rampage for its functional purity, declaring it nothing short of vehicular artistry.
Although the 1970 Camaro isn't always the first name that springs to mind in iconic muscle cars, this iteration stands out. It flaunts a BASF Glasurit Rage Blue coat, intricately sculpted 3D-widebody flares, and highlights of carbon fiber. Adding to its allure are the harmonizing center-lock gold Forgeline wheels (18" at the front and 19" at the rear), encased in 315/30 front and 345/30 rear tires, and safeguarded by 6-Piston Baer brakes.
The Road Rage Camaro reveals a more assertive posture and extended track. The Roadster Shop employed their bespoke Fast Track framework and suspension system, introducing a unique horizontally-aligned cantilever suspension. This avant-garde arrangement, featuring inboard pushrod-style suspension with Penske shocks at both ends, demanded the omission of the back seats.
