Chevrolet has come up with the new 2014 Camaro Convertible at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Other than going topless, this model receives extensive updates consisting of a new front fascia with a revised grille and restyled
headlights. The legendary muscle car from the American auto giant also features a ventilated hood, a decklid spoiler, a rear diffuser
and slender taillights.
The interior receives some minor upgrades which include a new steering wheel, revised instrumentation console and a new MyLink
infotainment system with a seven-inch display. Reverse camera is a standard fitment. It also gets Recaro seats as an optional extra.
The European model of the Chevy Camaro will be powered by two 6.2-liter V8 engines. Manual models will be equipped with the LS3 V8 engine which produces 432 HP of max power and a healthy 569 Nm of torque. The automatic versions will get a L99 V8 engine which produces 405 HP of max power and 556 Nm of torque. These engines enable the Camaro to propel from 0-100 kmph in 5.4 seconds with the six-speed manual and 0-100 km/h in 5.6 seconds with the six-speed automatic.
The 2014 Camaro Convertible will go on sale in Europe later this year. Now that Ford is planning to bring the iconic Ford Mustang to India, we expect Chevrolet to consider the Camaro for the Indian market which would surely heat up the muscle car scene in India.
