OVERHAUL: New Camaro due in November

The overhauled Chevrolet Camaro will arrive in the UK in November, it has been announced, with prices starting from £35,320.

Chevrolet claim the redesign is as significant as 2006’s fifth-generation Camaro concept car, with the changes giving the car a more contemporary feel.

It features a revised exterior appearance that integrates high-performance aerodynamics, allowing more efficient cooling and stability at high speeds.

The front fascia sports a wider lower grille and a narrower upper grille, while the functional hood vent helps reduce heat and aerodynamic lift.

At the rear, a sculptural deck lid, horizontal lamps and diffuser complete the performance car’s overhaul.

Standard interior offerings include remote keyless entry and Chevrolet MyLink technology, with a seven-inch touch-screen, rear-view camera and a voice recognition system.

Optional extras include remote engine start functionality – on automatic variants only – and a Europe-wide satellite navigation system.

The Camaro’s 6.2-litre engine produces 432hp (318Kw) when coupled with six-speed manual transmission, and 405hp (298Kw) in combination with automatic transmission.

The manual convertible version will be priced from £40,320.

Chevrolet is the world’s fourth-largest car brand, with annual sales of almost five million cars and trucks in more than 140 countries.
