Special Edition Green Flash Camaro Unveiled at SEMA

Last month, Chevrolet asked its social media fans to help choose a name for the latest special edition Camaro. The car in question has a unique shade of green paint along with other custom elements.

Fans submitted their suggestions through social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #NameThatCamaro. At the recent SEMA show in Las Vegas, Chevrolet announced the winning name, suggested by fan Jason M.

Say hello to the special edition Green Flash Camaro.

This unique Camaro will be available early next year. Along with the green paint job, the Camaro also has Cyber Gray racing stripes, 21-inch Chrome Dusk wheels, a ZL1 rear spoiler, RS appearance package, and a ground effects kit. The interior will only come in black with a Graphite Silver trim. You’ll also get a navigation system and sunroof with the option for a short-throw shifter and dual-mode exhaust.

The Green Flash Camaro will be one of the last special editions based on the fifth-generation 2015 Camaro. Pricing will be announced closer to the release date.

Top Speed Camaro: A Dream Come True

Top Speed CamaroA brand new adaption of the famous Chevrolet Camaro has debuted on the internet, and muscle car fans definitely have something to be excited about! The experts from Top Speed will have a hand in designing the new version of the Camaro. The Top Speed Camaro will feature a fresh, innovative design with a newly-shaped front end, stronger exterior styling, and bigger and more powerful wheels.

INAUTONEWS says that “The new generation of the Chevrolet Camaro will be riding on the Alpha platform, the same one used on the Cadillac CTS, and it should lose some significant weight from its body.” A lighter vehicle means more efficiency and the ability to reach higher speeds. You’ll also find plenty of new and exciting stuff under the hood of the car. Customers will have different options to choose from, including a new turbocharged gasoline engine that will be able to achieve 272 horsepower. This engine will be in direct competition with the EcoBoost engine that fuels the Ford Mustang.

The Top Speed Camaro is expected to be introduced at some point in 2015. Plan to get the new Camaro or one of its previous models from us at Tom Naquin Chevrolet!

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is Fast

The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is fast – really fast. And we’re not just talking about in a straight line. Chevrolet recently released video of the Camaro Z/28 doing a lap on Germany’s Nürburgring road course in a time of 7:37.40, a time comparable to some other very notable sports cars such as the Porsche 911 Carrera S and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.

The Z/28’s lap time is four seconds faster than the Camaro ZL1, and it accomplished this feat in rainy conditions (even pouring rain at one point).

“One of the challenges of testing at the ‘Ring is that the track is so long that conditions can change radically in a single lap,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer, in a press release. “Adam Dean, the development driver for Z/28, did a heroic job driving in deteriorating conditions. Based on telemetry data from our test sessions, we know the Z/28 can be as much as six seconds faster on a dry track.”

Check out the video below to ride along in the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 as it completes its impressive time.

Welcome Home, Chevrolet Camaro!

There’s no place like home.

Two Ruby Red slippers may not be necessary for this return, but a set of four painted aluminum wheels may be.

After twenty years abroad, the Chevrolet Camaro is coming back to America.

The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Coupe, to be launched in 2016, will be manufactured at the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in Lansing Michigan.

The move will assist in efforts to consolidate its rear-wheel drive assembly, which will be based upon a similar platform as the Cadillac ATS and the Cadillac CTS that are also manufactured at this plant.

After a seven-year discontinuation, production of the Chevrolet Camaro was re-launched at Oshawa Assembly in Ontario Canada in 2009.

Since then, the plant has built 100,000 Camaros, accounting for twenty-five percent of plant production.

The current-generation Chevrolet Camaro will continue to be manufactured at Oshawa Assembly until its life-cycle fades away.
