Chevrolet will offer a limited-edition ‘45th Anniversary’ model, available in carbon black paint with bespoke graphics. Other standard-fit equipment includes dark silver 20-inch alloy wheels, unique leather interior and instrumentation.
All models in the Camaro range are supplied with a six-speed manual gearbox, but are available with six-speed automatic transmission as a £1,500 option. GM’s StabiliTrak electronic stability programme and traction control are fitted as standard.
Both the coupe and convertible use large 355/365mm ventilated discs and four-pot aluminium Brembo calipers. The model uses multi-link front suspension with a double ball joint configuration and 4.5-link independent rear suspension at the rear.
Power comes from a 6.2-litre V8, developing 426bhp with acceleration between 5.2secs and 5.6secs, depending on transmission and bodystyle. All models are limited to 155mph.
The order books are open now, and the first cars are expected to arrive at dealerships in late spring.
