A modern blast from the past

This past year one of the most talked about concept car in history is now coming to reality. The 2010 Camaro was revealed in the transformer movie in 2009.  This particular model delivers the best of two worlds, mixing great heritage and a modern look, advanced performance, comfort and technology. The 2010 Camaro  is a sports car for the new and old generation of enthusiasts that takes pride of the heritage that help make the original a cultural icon.

 

A fast take on the facts

Built on the new GM global rear-drive platform, the Camaro is offered in V6-powered LS and LT models, as well as the V8-powered SS. All models and powertrain combinations include efficient six-speed transmissions.

“Camaro delivers all of the things that make Chevrolet such a revered, global brand,” said Peper. “It is a car that competes with the best sports cars in its class, but does so with surprising efficiency. That is no small feat, and it took a worldwide commitment to achieve it.”
