Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet is proud to officially announce the production of the 2011 Intimidator Camaro. Not since 2001 has this execution of style and speed been released into the hands of drivers nationwide. Unlike other editions, which are out there mired in the middle of the pack trying to gain position, the Intimidator Camaro carries the name that is synonymous with charging to the front. This car lives up to that name in every aspect. This supercharged, production model makes great use of NASCAR style and speed. Paying homage to the days when the NASCAR race car and the car you drove weren’t all that different. With an expected first quarter release date, keep your fire suits ready and your pit crew on standby because this machine will be on track soon!
