This wildy-modified Camaro coupe is out to turn a snail into a high-speed racer.

General Motors unveiled this supercharged 700 horsepower V8-powered fantasy car at the Chicago Auto Show recently and it will take a starring role in a new Dreamworks movie called Turbo which is about a snail obsessed with speed.

In GM's words, the "turbo" Camaro is fully customised with lower rockers and fender flares in a wide body design configuration, a front splitter and rear diffuser, and a GT concept rear wing spoiler. Lighting the way are custom front and rear LED lighting with multicolour halo effect for the front headlamps. The body is painted black with a vinyl chrome wrap, dark tinted to look like black chrome. The front tyres are 24-inches by 10-inches with a front wheel and custom offset, the rear are 24-inches by 15-inches.

There is a custom created intake assembly for supercharger housing. The rear exhaust outlets are five-inches in diameter, with two per side.

Turbo is set to hit theatres in July this year and you can watch the film's trailer below.
