The new Chevrolet Camaro has returned to Europe after a decade-long absence. The new Camaro is equipped with two engine variants; a 432 hp 6.2-litre LS3 V8 engine with manual transmission produces 569 Nm of torque at 4,600 rpm that makes the Chevrolet Camaro accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 5.2 seconds for the coupe and 5.4 seconds for the convertible. The automatic transmission is coupled to 405hp 6.2 L L99 V8 engine that delivers 556 Nm at 4,300 rpm. The automatic coupe hits 100km/h in 5.4 seconds, with an additional 0.2 seconds for the convertible. The new Chevrolet Camaro has an impressive top speed of 250 km/h.
The Chevrolet Camaro European model is similar to the 2SS model offered in North America. The new model features a new FE4 suspension that was developed specially for Europe. The FE4 suspension package features re-tuned front and rear dampers, and new solid front (23 mm) and rear (24 mm) stabilizer bars.
The V-shaped nose is flanked by high-intensity discharge headlamps with glowing LED Xenon halo rings, mimicking deep-inset eyes and giving the Chevrolet Camaro a menacing look.
The rear fascia is unique to the European Chevrolet Camaro models. Twin LED tail lamp elements mirror the unique look of the vehicle’s front. The rear design is finished off with large, round chrome exhaust tips similar to those used on the Corvette Z06.
For the Interior, the new Chevrolet Camaro comes with contemporary details in the dials, switches, cluster and ambient lighting.
The integrated center stack design combines easy-to-reach stereo and HVAC controls into a single piece of modern electronics with oversized knobs – detailed with rubber grommets and chrome – to match the character of the nameplate.
The Chevrolet Blue Ice ambient light runs across the doors. The same blue hue characterizes the speedometer on the left and rev counter on the right, with further driver information displayed in between. Optional orange ambient lighting is available with the Inferno Orange Interior Trim.
The new Chevrolet Camaro also features an Active Fuel Management. The Active Fuel Management system on the L99 engine automatically shuts down four of the eight cylinders during light load operations, allowing for reduced fuel consumption.
The Chevrolet Camaro manual models have a combined consumption figure of 14.1 L/100 km. The automatic variants fare even better with a combine consumption of 13.1 L/100 km.
Prices for the Chevrolet Camaro coupe start at €38,900 while the convertible prices start at €43,900. The Transformers® Special Edition and 45th Anniversary package come at an additional €2,000 each including VAT.
