Chiefs S Eric Berry's New Camaro Not So Camarohead (http://www.arrowheadpride.com/2010/4/27/1447336/chiefs-s-eric-berrys-new-camaro)

http://cdn0.sbnation.com/profile_images/240996/headshot_tiny.jpg by Joel Thorman (http://www.sbnation.com/users/Joel%20Thorman) on Apr 27, 2010 11:41 AM PDT (http://www.arrowheadpride.com/2010/4/27/1447336/chiefs-s-eric-berrys-new-camaro) in 2010 NFL Draft (http://www.arrowheadpride.com/section/2010-draft)

Last weekend new Chiefs (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/KAN) S Eric Berry (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/108650/Eric_Berry) told reporters the first thing he was going to buy (http://www.arrowheadpride.com/2010/4/23/1438578/2010-nfl-draft-whats-the-first) now that he's been drafted was.... A 2010 Camaro.

Odd, I said at the time, since so many other players were showing up to the draft with thousands and thousands of dollars of jewelry. You wouldn't think the fifth overall pick would make his big purchase a Camaro.

Well, it's not just any Camaro, according to Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star (@Mellinger (http://twitter.com/mellinger/status/12957015794)): Got a PR e-mail about Chiefs S Eric Berry's 1200-horsepower Camaro. It sells for $149k, so not exactly the kind that made it Camarohead
Glad to see Mr. Mellinger knows about Camarohead. (http://www.arrowheadpride.com/2010/4/23/1438578/2010-nfl-draft-whats-the-first)

(If you can't figure it out...Arrowhead + Camaro = Camarohead)

The good thing for Mr. Berry? He'll be signing a contract somewhere in the neighborhood of $25 million guaranteed which means he can buy 167 of these things if he'd like.

Depends.

The appearance will likely be fairly standard, but take a $40,000 car, put twin turbos on it, start putting in racing suspension and the kind of safety equipment it will need, then the insane electronics that I'm sure that car will have inside it, and you can add $100K on there in a hurry.

But there is a reason for that. You're paying for craftsmanship. With new cars, we're talking about mainly bolt on stuff.

Fair point; at upwards of $100/hr for certain things, you can hit that $100K mark in a hurry on the classics. Especially when you start doing that intricate work that takes insane amounts of time but absolutely has to be done for a true masterpiece (crap like peeling apart layers of steel to sandblast any possible rust out of there, then putting it back together again).

With the new stuff, there's no rehab work to be done. But you also need to have a pretty impressive amount of computer savvy anymore as well, so those guys can cost a bit more than some of the folks that specialize in the classics.

I'm also sure the $150K figure is a 'wow' number as much as the 1200 HP figure is. When you start building cars like that, you're marketing to ego as much as anything. If you're advertising a car like that to a market that believes that money truly is no object, then I can see you bragging about a sticker price of $150K just to turn heads, then letting it go for $100K.

Chief’s First-Round Pick Eric Berry Commissions Special Edition Camaro from National Speed

04.27.2010 – Wilmington, NC based Special Projects [SP] Division of National Speed, Inc. (www.nsi-spd.com) is working with Eric Berry, A3 Athletics (www.a3athletics.com) and VPI Business Advisors (www.vpi-advisors.com) to craft a signature edition of National Speed's 1200-horsepower NZ1200 Camaro. Badged the NZ1200-EB, this limited edition Camaro is presently in production at National Speed and should be ready to roll in time for the Chief's home opener against San Diego on September 13.

National Speed’s 2010 NZ1200 Camaro will be capable of over 1.3g’s on the skidpad, boasts three driver selectable power levels—800, 1000, and 1200 horsepower, yet is still comfortable as a streetcar. The Eric Berry Edition NZ1200-EB will take this up one more notch by adding a number of styling and performance enhancements. In addition, National Speed will support the Eric Berry Foundation by donating $10,000 for every NZ1200-EB sold.

“The 2010 NZ1200-EB Camaro, with its unique combination of power, control and style is the perfect reflection of Eric Berry, and we are excited to be working closely with Eric and VPI on this project”, said Chris Polanski, National Speed’s president. “Eric is an amazing athlete on the football field, but he is just as strong of a person off the field. Even before entering the NFL, Eric showed his strong character by creating the Eric Berry Foundation. This non-profit gives back to his community and provides opportunities to kids in need, and National Speed is honored to be able to help support it.

“Eric has been a Chevy guy his whole life”, said Jared Cullop of VPI, “and he knows what he wants to create in the EB Edition of this very rare and peerless car. When it’s complete, it will reflect his personality more than anything I can imagine. I’m really enjoying working with Eric and National Speed in developing this Camaro and raising awareness of the Eric Berry Foundation through the project.”

The National Speed 2010 NZ2100-EB Camaro will sell for $149,000 and will be available in September 2010.

I agree. The price tag is just as much of a wow factor as the HP numbers. These guys love to brag about it. Rightfully so. I would too if i had that kind of cheddar.

The more i think about it...i guess 150K isn't THAT far off.

40K for the SS model
20Kish to fabricate a supercharger kit (parts+labor)
Custom 3-Piece wheels....2k a piece...8K in wheels...another 2K in tires.
2K for a in dash double Din w/ Navi

Nope, didn't have mine built. Best way to find a great 'driver' classic is to find one that some other poor soul dropped $40-$50 grand on and buy it from him for 1/2 that.

If you want something to put in a car show, get it built. If you want something to drive around when the weather is nice and take on poker runs, buy somebody else's money pit.

We charge $96 an hour and we're considered to be on the cheap side. However, we take the time to do things right and we end up being more expensive than others, but rightly so.

I've never heard $100 considered on the cheap side, but it's certainly not outside of market either. Especially not if you're doing body work as well. For purely mechanical stuff, I've seen as low as $50 (that's what we pay the guy that works on ours; but he's a guy that's been working on Gen1 Camaros for 20 years, he does it as a hobby and he's a former co-worker of my wife so we get it pretty cheap). But once you're talking about body work, those guys don't come cheap if they do a good job because that's truly artisian type stuff. The suspension and engine stuff, most good grease-monkeys could manage. But the rest requires a pretty skilled hand and those guys know they can get a lot of money for their services.

yep in CALIFORNIA. not in mid missouri. here 100+ per hour is crazy. my friend does as good of work as i have ever seen. a super bee he built won mopar of the year in columbus ohio at a big mopar show a couple of years ago. this cat does it all and every nut and bolt is taken out. steering column, wiper motor, hell the whole wiring harness comes apart, wire by wire. he's GOOD and relatively cheap by industry standards. and he comes out in the same boat, maybe more or close to the same price, but much higher standards. hell he jokes about a 70 nova that the guy had $3,000 in the fenders because they were junk to start with and he's a perfectionist

hell he jokes about a 70 nova that the guy had $3,000 in the fenders because they were junk to start with and he's a perfectionist

Oh I believe it. Especially if they were aftermarket Fenders. We started making our own Fiberglass parts because the glass stuff that is out there is such crap that we'd end up spending 40 hours+ just trying to make these "brand new" parts fit. Some of the sheetmetal is just as bad.

Being a perfectionist is a good thing. Just not for the customer's pocket. There is a guy out here who specializes in color sanding and buffing. He does a lot of the uppity high class cars. cars that you would see at Pebble beach etc. He gets away with charging upwards of 20K for a color sand and Buff.

But...damn....you should see this guy go.....fucking incredible attention to detail. He'll spend a few weeks color sanding and buffing a single car. And he makes a shit ton of money doing it to.

Our shop cant even afford to outsource jobs to him, he's so expensive. But....He has no problem getting work and charging what he does.

Crazy.

That is not a good sign according to Jack Bechta (an NFL agent). Berry is most likely going to be dead broke by the time his career is over and will probably be a bust.

How to spot a rookie who is setting himself up for financial disaster.

3) The $75,000 or more car. If you know a rookie who purchases a new car or truck for more than $75,000, he will most likely have exotic taste that comes with a big price tag. One thing I have learned in this business is to let a player treat himself to a nice car. However, the previous year’s model with less than 20,000 miles can be had for a deep discount. Players throw more money away on cars and their accessories than anything else I know of.

Even so, nothing wrong with buying yourself a really really expensive car. He earned it. I would probably so something similar as well. He has the chance to get something he's always wanted and no one can tell him no.

The most Chevy could do is give him the car, most of that $ is being spent on someone doing custom work to it. I also doubt they care to give him the car.

The car itself is only about $40,000 so you can figure the other $100,000 is the custom work. That's crazy.

I have a 65' Chevy II Nova I have been working on the last 3 years and I can't fathom putting $140,000 into it though I know of cars that have that much in them.

It wouldn't be fun at all. 1200 HP would be COMPLETELY useless even on the track. You would lose all grip every time you upshifted and tried to accelerate. It's just a stupid big number to brag about. The only car that's usable with that kind of HP is a Formula 1 car and even then, it takes the most skilled individuals in the world to be able to race them.

Yup. Off boost, turbo motors can be fairly docile, even a bit of a dog.
Bet that sucker goes nuts once the turbos spin up though.
MDRB’s turbo Hayabusa was like that. Ran like trash below about 6000 RPM then would go nuts above that point. I don’t even know how he got it down the track but he could run an 8.70 with it, street tire and no wheelie bar.

This.

We have our twin supercharged Mustang de-tuned to about 830 HP, and it's retarded fast. You can spin the tires in every gear. 1200 HP is just an estimated number, i doubt that much power gets to the ground. Typical drive train loss is about 20%, so that should bring that number down to about 950 HP in action, which is still insane.

Ultimately, it will depend on the cam, boost and other variables to determine how difficult the car is to drive....but regardless, I doubt its easy. Especially if that's the car pictured, because bagged cars, in my experience, do not hook well at all.

Had a friend that had a "huffer" on a full tube chassis, big block 67 Camaro, running alky/nitro mix (not sure the percentage) that was probably pushing about that HP or more.

Am I the only one that doesn't like this story about Berry's first purchase? You can't fault the guy for buying a dream car, or for his taste in vehicles, or any of that tawdry stuff, but you can question the logic in purchasing this vehicle at this exact point in your life.

You just hit the sports lottery. You're looking at a grotesque amount of money, and the potential for an unreal career trajectory (at least we all hope so). While the bulk of CP would be thrilled to get a handful of pro bowls and a decade of service from Mr. Eric Berry, all I can think about when I read about this car, is Derrick.

If you're Eric Berry, do you purchase a vehicle you know exponentially increases the likelihood of your being in a potentially tragic accident (based on speed alone)? Or do you go with something less ridiculous that has no intention of going 200+mph? Granted, Derrick was lost in a far less modified vehicle, but he was driving way too fast (as was typical for him), and I don't understand why Berry would do this. If I were him, I'm picking up a dope Aston Martin or something and relaxing on my way to work.

I think you're thinking about it too much. In my experience, customers who build these kinds of cars also have or purchase regular commuter cars. I doubt this will be his only car, and I doubt he'll drive it on a daily basis. These are weekend warrior cars. Im sure he'll have a nice, comfy Beamer to go along with it.

Well, i doubt that it's just the motor that is being modified. The Camaro in it's stock form is no slouch, and with the right suspension upgrades and that kind of power, i would put it in the same category as some of the super cars.

Not all Super car are really that "super". We were working with another company and had the luxury of comparing a GTM (sold for 175K) to a new Z06, and the Z06 ran with it all day and and didn't feel like a piece of cheap fiberglass in doing so either.

Ever sat in a Saleen S7? Good gawd, im a small guy and i was cramped...I'm only 5 9" and I had to crawl out of that thing on my hands and knees....the point is, i'd take a highly modded muscle car over some of these "super cars" any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I think a supercar is a lot more than just insane amounts of HP. Shit, most supercars don't even come close to 1200HP because they're designed to stay on the road and be responsive to a driver's every command at high speeds. Anyone can make a car with 1200HP, the trick is making a powerful car that can actually utilize all that power.

Oh, i agree. A super car is about Aerodynamics and balance. But, my argument is that you can make a 40K camaro into a super car. I could be wrong, but i thought the Camaro was designed with great weight distribution.

And if we can make a 1967 Mustang have 50/50 weight distribution, im sure it can be done to a new Camaro. No one would consider a '67 Mustang anywhere close to a supercar...but ours is, and there is denying that...it's a 67 Mustang Fastback Supercar...fucking thing even has a belly pan, lol.

Yeah we are getting into semantics and taste here. I still don't really see how a muscle car can be built up to anything more than a disgustingly fast straight line machine that handles pretty well.

Yup, and he was still more than a half second off the fast guys in the class he was shooting for.
I think that’s why he kind of gave up on the professional drag racing dream and sold that bike. He couldn’t hit 8.7’s reliably, the tire would go up in smoke as often as it would hook, and he still wouldn’t be qualifying for half the events.

The good thing for Mr. Berry? He'll be signing a contract somewhere in the neighborhood of $25 million guaranteed which means he can buy 167 of these things if he'd like.

Glad to see Mr. Mellinger knows about Camarohead. (http://www.arrowheadpride.com/2010/4/23/1438578/2010-nfl-draft-whats-the-first)

(If you can't figure it out...Arrowhead + Camaro = Camarohead)

The good thing for Mr. Berry? He'll be signing a contract somewhere in the neighborhood of $25 million guaranteed which means he can buy 167 of these things if he'd like.

Sorta like what LJ bought, just the K-Mart version! ROFL

If I got drafted the first thing I'd probably buy is my own jersey. That would be fucking sweet.

To some degree - BUT they have a LOT going for them in their own right.

From a looks stand point I'll agree. You can tell modern muscle cars are created by a committee, not a single designer with a vision.
But from a mechanical stand point modern muscle comes stock with the type of hardware the guys building old school muscle would've sold their daughters virginity for.

He's what, 22 and a mega millionaire? He did what 98% of all 22 year old mega millionaires would have done..... get a fast as fuck sports car.

And the new Camaros definitely are NOT pieces of shit.

I don't disagree with the fact that he got a fast car w/ the millions of dollars he has now.....I'd just choose to get a different car. I just don't like the new camaro. JMO obviously. I'd rather have a suped-up 'Vette, a dodge viper....just my preference.

Very nice build. That intake Manifold is just down right gorgeous.

But the dyno numbers they posted, I'm a bit skeptical about. When a dyno sheet looks that pretty, sometimes they're faked.

And there is no way in hell that car is streetable pulling those kind of RWHP numbers. They'll tune it down significantly for practical use.

So is the OP amount correct about the price? I didn't see anything posted on that message board about price. I would think that $150K for all of that isn't a bad price. A lot of custom work done on that car.

In the thread, the guy doing the work said $139K. I imagine that with some of the other stuff he might have added (audio, etc), it probably pushed 150K.

I am guessing by your avatar that you know something about building engines?

Had a friend back in high school and college days that always used the 3 ways to build an engine philosophy.

Cheap
FAST
Reliable

He always said you could choose TWO of the three but you wouldn't get the third in the process of building a motor.

I always thought that was a pretty good way of looking at buiding what you want and could afford.
