It has now been nearly 50 years since Chevrolet introduced the Camaro on September 26th, 1966. In that time it had a lot of time to grow and develop into one of America’s most beloved muscle cars. To honor the Camaro’s golden anniversary, Chevrolet have revealed a special edition Camaro. Introducing the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition.
The 50th Anniversary Edition features the same engine and trim options as the normal car, 2LT and 2SS. However, it sets itself apart with the numerous aesthetic changes that ensure everybody who sees this Camaro drive by knows that it is something more than just a street car. Starting with the paint, the 50th Anniversary edition, which is available in both coupe and convertible, comes exclusively with Nightfall Grey Metallic paint (and a black top for the convertible models).
Also on the list of changes are some exclusive 20-inch 50th Anniversary wheels and wheel caps, behind which are some orange painted brake calipers. The car has 50th Anniversary hood stripes, as well as specal badges around the car that say “Fifty”. Unique to the Camaro is a distinctive grille in satin black and chrome accents, plus a body color front splitter.
Finally, moving to the interior, this limited edition Camaro features unique black leather seats with suede inserts and orange accent stitching, as well as distinct 50th Anniversary treatments on the instrument panel, seatbacks, steering wheel and illuminated door sill plates.
If you are looking for a special Camaro, but also want some extra power, maybe think about the all-new 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1. Featuring a 6.2 Liter supercharged V8 with 640 horsepower mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or a 10-speed automatic. The ZL1 offers Camaro customers a huge performance upgrade to hit the track. Given the stiffer structure of the all-new sixth-Gen Camaro, teamed up with Magnetic Ride suspension and an electronic limited-slip differential, the new ZL1 could be a track beast to take down the likes of the Mustang Shelby GT350.
