Chevrolet will unveil a brand new edition of its classic Camaro at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The new model, available as a coupe or convertible, will be released at the end of 2013.
Chevy has enhanced the Camaro's aerodynamics, allowing for a more effective cooling system and improved handling at high speeds. In terms of design, this translates to more fluid lines, a larger hood vent, a new front grill, redesigned rear lights, and a spoiler with a built-in antenna.
Its 6.2L V8 motor is paired with six-speed transmission, available in manual or automatic. The stick shift version offers 432hp, with 0 to 100km/h acceleration in 5.2 seconds for the coupe and 5.4 seconds for the convertible.
Hands-free door locks are available across the board, and Camaros with automatic transmission even allow drivers to start the engine remotely. On the inside, the latest Camaros offer color head-up display and a backup camera for driving assistance, and the coupe can even be ordered with leather Recaro power seats for the ultimate level of comfort and style.
Also on board the new Camaro is the Chevrolet MyLink system, embedded in a 7" screen in the center console. The system allows drivers to make phone calls, select music playlists or even view photos by connecting with a phone or tablet, either by Bluetooth or USB.
