Chevy folks in Detroit decided it’s time to go east. So, instead of debuting the new Camaro at LA Motor Show in December, they are going east to the 65th Frankfurt Motor Show. With fast, low-slung silhouette and Chevrolet’s new MyLink radio, the latest edition of the famous sports car represents the most significant redesign since the introduction of the fifth-generation Camaro as a concept car in 2006.
Under the hood, improvements include aerodynamics to provide more efficient cooling stability at high speeds. By widening lower fascia grille, and narrowing upper grille Chevy managed to reduce heat and aerodynamic lift. Spoilers of both the coupe and the convertible sports spoilers with integral antennas.
Chevy’s trusted 6.2L V8 engine is back to power the Camaro. Comes with a six-speed manual or an automatic transmission with fuel management and cam phasing. Manual transmission delivers 432 horsepower at 5,900 rpm and a 569 torque at 4,600 rpm. With these power-ups, Zero to 100 accelerations stands at 5.2 seconds for the manual coupe and 5.4 seconds for the manual convertible.
Even a muscle car need to consider modern conveniences, and Camaro has plenty to offer. Your journey starts with starting the Camaro with the remote keyless entry. Though remote start is optional for the automatic version. Other benefits include Chevy MyLink with a 7-inch touch screen, “text-to-speech capability” that allows users to listen to text messages and a rearview camera. Integrated navigations system is also optional. Recaro sports bucket seats are optional only the coupe.
Prices starting from €39,990 (approx. $53,000) for the coupe and €44,990 (approx. $60,000) for the convertible. With rugged strength, iconic design and unique muscle car attribute, Camaro makes a compelling choice for performance-oriented drivers.
