At the New York Motor Show (March 25-April 3) fans were eagerly waiting for the new Camaro ZL1, but the Chevrolet wanted to make a further surprise also introducing the Convertible. The variant with a canvas roof will be on sale at the beginning of 2017, a few months after the coupe.
The mechanical properties of the two body versions are the same: even the Convertible can then count on LT4 V8 6.2 supercharged 640 hp and 868 Nm, mated to the manual or automatic all’inedito ten-speed. Thanks to sophisticated design of the chassis of the sixth generation of the Camaro, also the version with canvas roof will be stiffer and lighter than the previous series, but for the moment are not all technical data disclosed (the coupe is “thinner” than 90 kg compared to a substantial increase in power).
