Chevrolet will debut the new Camaro convertible, and the new redesigned version of the coupe at the 65th Frankfurt Motor Show, September 14 through to the 22nd. The new Camaro convertible, with it’s low slung silhouette is a radical addition to the famed American muscle car brand.
The new Camaro has improved, high performance aerodynamics providing more efficient cooling and greater stability at high speeds. The front end sports a wide lower grille and narrow upper grille, with a functional hood vent helping to reduce heat and aerodynamic lift. The rear sculptured deck lid, horizontal lamps, diffuser and spoiler with integral antenna complete the new design. While under the hood is nestled the proven 6.2L V8 engine, paired with a choice of either a 6 speed manual, or automatic transmission. The automatic transmission model includes active fuel management and cam phasing. Putting out 432 hp (318 kW), and delivering torque of 569 Nm, the Camaro convertible goes from 0 to 100 (62 mph) in just 5.4 seconds. The coupe can make the same jump in just 5.2 seconds, being slightly more aerodynamic than the convertible.
The interior is accessed using a standard, remote keyless entry. Standard interior highlights include a new color heads-up display, and the new Chevrolet MyLink radio, a 7″, high resolution, full color touch screen, with a clean, icon based display menu. A rearview camera is also a standard feature. Unfortunately, the Recaro seats available in the coupe don’t make the jump to the Camaro convertible.
The new Camaro will be available at selected Chevrolet dealerships throughout Europe later this year. Prices will start from €39,990 for the coupe and €44,990 for the convertible in Germany.2
