2014 SLP Panther Camaro: 5,000 Mile Update
February 27, 2014
Since we took delivery of our hot rod 2014 SLP Panther Camaro at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas back in November, we've driven this supercharged beast over 5,000 miles.
In that time we've all fallen for the black Chevy with the gold trim. It's a fun drive. Despite some track testing and daily exploitation of its 600-hp V8 the SLP Panther had yet to need any mechanical repairs. Until this happened. Also, its four very large Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires are starting to show some serious wear.
And if there was any doubt that we've been driving this car with heavy hands (and feet) our average fuel mileage of 13.7 mpg confirms it. As does the cars request for an oil change, which seems a little early for an engine that uses synthetic oil. But as the saying goes, "you wanta play you gotta pay." We'll get the oil changed this week.
