Recently, the new Euro- spec Chevrolet Camaro Coupe and Convertible has been going to sale in the UK. Well, from now on, the Camaro has been really legalized for the Europe. However, sadly for the UK buyers the company will not provide the Chevrolet in right- hand drive models.
A 6.2 liter V8 is offered for both models with a six- speed manual or transmissions are also available. The company has announced that the vehicle will have a price tag starting from £35,025 or equal to US$54,450 for the coupe model and rising to £40,025 for the convertible model.
The Camaro model with such previously mentioned LS3 6.2 liter V8 and mated with the six- speed manual is able to churn out a total output of 426 horses or 432 PS and 415 lb- ft or 563 Nm of peak torque. With the manual, the vehicle sprints from 0 to 62 mph in 5.2 seconds sprint time for the coupe, while the convertible needs 5.4 seconds sprint time. In other words, the coupe model is faster by 2 seconds over the convertible.
On the other hand, the L99 6.2-litre V8 engine with automatic transmission produces 399 horsepower of output and 410 lb- ft or equal to 556 Nm of peak torque. To accelerate from standstill to 62 mph the coupe spends 5.4 seconds, while the convertible takes 5.6 seconds sprint time.
Both models are riding on 20 inch alloy wheels mounted in Pirelli P- Zero tyres. Additionally, the company is also offering the optional 45th anniversary packages that is cost at £1,500.
The European specification model has some minor differences over its North American counterpart.
The North American model is actually different in some case with the European specification model. The European model misses the FE4 suspension with retuned front and rear dampers, plus new solid front (23mm) and rear (24mm) stabiliser bars that are found in the North American model, but gains bespoke LED tail lamps in the shape of sunglasses, larger folding exterior mirrors, and a different font for the instrument panel gauges that are absence in its North American counterpart.
