UFC®, Findlay Customs and Modern Muscle Las Vegas Create Ten Limited Edition UFC Camaros

Las Vegas, NV (USA) – The UFC® today announced it is teaming up with Findlay Customs and Modern Muscle Las Vegas to release 10 Limited Edition UFC Chevrolet Camaros. The very first car, “#1” will be auctioned to benefit the Intrepid Fallen Heroes fund, a charity dedicated to providing financial support for the dependents of United States military personnel lost in performance of their duty.

UFC, in conjunction with Findlay Customs and Modern Muscle Las Vegas will build the limited-edition UFC Camaros complete with 650 Super-charged horsepower and one-of-a-kind features that will make even the most die-hard UFC fan or gearhead stand up and take notice. The remaining Camaros (numbered #2 through #10) will be made to UFC fans in the coming months. They will sport subtle UFC cues such as a black, red and silver paint scheme, leather seats resembling the UFC fight glove and other UFC-themed insignia.

Sports car enthusiasts, muscle car collectors and UFC fans alike can catch the unveiling of the very first UFC Camaro at the UFC® Fan Expo™ ufcfanexpo.com taking place May 28 and 29 (Memorial Day Weekend) at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The first chance to bid on the “01” UFC Camaro will be Saturday, June 26th at Barrett Jackson’s in Orange County, California. “01” will also come with an unforgettable UFC experience that includes an inaugural drive with UFC President Dana White, backstage VIP access at a UFC event, meet and greets with UFC fighters, an autographed limited-edition OCTAGON book, UFC gear and other surprises.

“Our troops make incredible sacrifices every day for our country,” said Dana White, UFC President. “Auctioning off the very first UFC Camaro for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is just another way to continue our support, and show the men and women of the armed forces how much we appreciate their service.”

“We consider it a great honor to work with the UFC on this project for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund,” said Adam Bonaldi, Vice President of Findlay Customs and Modern Muscle Las Vegas. “Only 10 of these custom UFC Camaros will be made, so we expect a huge response from collectors and fans for these ultra-rare cars.”
