    From the other land down under comes a tuning job for the South African edition of the Chevrolet SuperUte SS that would turn a 1974 Chevy El Camino an envious shade of green.

    The Chevrolet Ute was sold up until recently as the Pontiac G8 in the North American market and continues to go under the name of the Holden Ute SS in Australia.

    South African tuner LupiniPower has pumped up this Chevrolet SuperUte SS pickup to an output of 535 bhp (399 kW) and 590 lb-ft of torque (799 Nm) on a supercharged 6.0 liter V8 power plant similar to that which goes into the Corvette ZR1. 0 to 100 km/h takes just 4.5 seconds and top speed is 175 mph (282 km/h).

    LupiniPower also provides a suspension 'tweak' for better handling and race-spec front disc brakes and calipers.

    The SuperUte rides on 20-inch wheels, with 8.5 x 20-inch rims at the front and 10 x 20-inch at the back, wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza RE050 ultra-high performance tires.

    The tuner's all-inclusive price for the Chevrolet SportUte SS is $91,500/€63,000/£58,000.

    A full Bilstein suspension and a limited-slip differential for the true track fiend are optional.
