Reiter has spun off a new company called Sareni United and will field a newly designed vehicle in 2012 to fill the void left by the Reiter Gallardo in the International GT sprint racing format.
Yesterday we reported about Reiter Engineering's new Lamborghini Gallardo LP600+ GT3 offering with a new concentration on endurance racing for the 2012 season. Now Reiter has spun off a new company called Sareni United and will field a newly designed vehicle in 2012 to fill the void left by the Reiter Gallardo in the International GT sprint racing format.
With FIA homologation started in October 2010, a 12 man team under the direction of Reiter Engineering in Germany developed the new car within one year. The Camaro GT is powered by a 7.9 liter V8 producing 650 PS (641 bhp / 478 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. Just like the Reiter Gallardo, the transmission is a Holinger 6-speed semi-automatic sequential unit linked to a speed shift paddle system.
Founder and owner Hans Reiter states, "I am looking forward to the first race of the Camaro GT, it will be very exciting. The racing car is an option for a lot of teams because it provides an interesting cost structure. Uwe Geipel‘s team YACO will use two cars for the ADAC GT Masters races. Perhaps they can also compete in the GT3 European Championship. We also have a lot of serious requests from the GT4 and touring car series. Our idea of attracting new customers instead of taking away teams from other manufacturers has worked so far."
Pricing for the Camaro GT starts at 195,000 Euro (+VAT).
