The Most Obnoxious Camaro Ever: "Turbo"

In this particular instance, the term "obnoxious" is not meant to hold any negative connotation. By obnoxious, I mean the single-most bad-ass Camaro I've ever seen. Although it was strictly built to promote Pixar's new movie, "Turbo", most of the parts you see are 100% functional. What I thought was interesting was the choice they made for its forced induction system. Supercharging the engine obviously makes more horsepower, but why would you supercharge a car that is a promo for a movie called "Turbo"? It just makes no sense to me.

However, the demographic that "Turbo" is aimed towards would generally not know what the heck a forced induction system even is. That being said, I'm not really sweatin on the details. This car is not meant to be a track king, or even a drag racer. It simply exists for the masses to drool on. Take one look at the over-sized deep dish wheels and the dinner table of a front diffuser, and you will quickly realize how useless it would be on a track.
"This 2013 "Turbo" Camaro Coupe is getting the promotion machine ratcheted up for a new DreamWorks tale by the name of, you guessed it, Turbo. Coming this summer, the movie will follow one snail's quest to become a race driver worthy of making the cut at the Indy 500. Like many DreamWorks vehicles before it, we're guessing that the petrolhead snail will star in a movie that adults (especially racing fans) with have no trouble watching with their kids."

"As for the car, we're told that it is "instrumental" in transforming Turbo from snail into racer. Helping the beastly pony car in this mighty task, is an ankle-cracking front splitter matched by a ungodly huge rear wing out back, a COPO hood and a supercharged (yes, supercharged) V8 engine making more than 700 horsepower. 24-inch wheels all the way around – 10-inches wide in front and 15-inches wide in back – should allow the "Turbo" Camaro to hook up with ease, as well."
