2016 Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition debuts
Chevrolet has unveiled its 50th-anniversary Edition Camaro recently. Introduced to the world as a pony car back in 1966 to take on Ford’s Mustang, the nameplate has been around for half a century now, despite being out of production for as long as eight years since 2002, before making a comeback in 2010.
The car is dubbed the “most epic Camaro ever created” by Chevrolet. To commemorate the feat, the special-edition car will feature a revised grille, a new body-coloured front splitter and 50th Anniversary body stripes up front. Orange brake calipers behind the unique 20-inch alloy wheels round off the exterior package. However, the entry-level variant receives an RS Appearance Package which includes HID headlights, LED taillights and a trunk-mounted spoiler.
The special edition can be had as a coupe or convertible, either as a 2LT or a 2SS variant. The 2SS variant will feature a 6.2-litre V8 engine that pumps out 455 hp and 616 Nm of torque, which will be connected to a six-speed manual, or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission.
The interior remains largely the same, but for some added 50th Anniversary logos on the instrument panel, seatbacks, and steering wheel. The car will also come with black leather seats with suede inserts.
The regular 2016 Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition is expected to hit the shores of UAE, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the GCC sometime later this year.
