35K price tag for Chevy’s new Camaro
British buyers with £34,995 to spend can now place orders for the Camaro, and expect delivery in late spring.
The Convertible will arrive at the same time, priced at £5,000 more than its Coupe sister.
The Camaro is probably the most famous badge in the muscle-car world, and in its latest version comes powered by a 6.2-litre V8 engine of 425bhp, or 399bhp with the auto gearbox.
In manual form the Coupe hits 62mph from rest in 5.2 seconds, the Convertible following two tenths behind. Both cars are electronically limited to 155mph.
Fuel consumption remains to traditional muscle car standards – the combined cycle being 20mpg in manual form, 21.5 for the auto.
There will also be a launch special edition celebrating the 45th anniversary of the first Camaro and finished in Carbon Flash Black with bespoke red and silver anniversary stripes.
The car costs £36,495 for the Coupe or £41,495 in Convertible form, and comes with dark silver 20-inch alloys and a unique 45th anniversary leather interior with red, white and blue stitching and a one-off white-backed instrument panel.
