Chevrolet announced today the brand's most-powerful convertible ever -- the 2013 Camaro ZL1 -- will debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month. When it goes on sale in late 2012, it will deliver more performance and technology than many exotic cars and ultra-luxury convertibles.
► NEW 2012 Camaro Convertible
The Chevrolet Camaro
Convertible is the latest expression of the iconic and modern sports car.
The new model brings V8 power with top-down crusing to Europe. Welburn,
Head of Global Design for General Motors, discusses the design process for
the Camaro and how you
can be inspired by the brand's heritage and move the brand forward at the
same time. Welburn tells the emotional and personal story about bringing
this car to life as a designer.
Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Concept
Fulfilling the wish of every child who has ever played with one, Chevrolet
and Hot Wheels® have created a life-size Hot Wheels Camaro Concept. The car debuted
at the 2011 SEMA Show -- the aftermarket industry's premier display of
The Camaro Hot Wheels
concept is inspired by the "Custom Camaro" -- the dazzling
Spectraflame® 1:64-scale toy that was part of the original 16 Hot Wheels
cars released in 1968. The project was a collaborative effort between the
General Motors Design studio in Michigan and the Hot Wheels Design studio
in California. Each sketched its own ideas of a life-size Hot Wheels Camaro, compared notes and
refined their visions until the concept hit the right note for each group
The synergistic project created a car that is instantly identifiable as a
Camaro with styling
cues -- including flat-black graphics, red-line wheels and, of course, the
dazzling metallic-green finish -- that are classic Hot Wheels.
The original Hot Wheels cars debuted with their metallic Spectraflame paint
finishes, and the Camaro Hot Wheels Concept
features a brilliant, chrome-style finish created in a similar manner: a
tinted top coat over a shiny base.
In the case of the original Hot Wheels lineup, the process involved
polishing the die-cast metal vehicle bodies and applying a metallic lacquer
to them. With the Camaro Hot Wheels Concept, the
process was decidedly more complicated.
The reflective finish was created using Gold Touch Inc.'s Cosmichrome
product, starting with the application of a primer coat on an immaculately
prepared surface. The primer coat was then sprayed with a liquid-metal
solution to create the mirror-smooth, silver-chrome base coat. Afterward,
the green tint was applied in several layers until the just-right color
effect was achieved.
► 2012 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
The Chevrolet Camaro
opens a new chapter as the 2011 Camaro convertible premieres at
the Los Angeles International Auto Show. The new convertible begins
production in January and goes on sale in February. It includes an enhanced
body structure and well-tailored top mechanism -- a combination designed to
deliver sports coupe-like driving fun and precise quality. The convertible
will be offered in similar model configurations as the Camaro coupe. The standard model
will have a 312-horsepower direct injection
V-6 engine delivering 29 mpg highway. The SS model will feature the 6.2L
V-8 engine producing 426 horsepower. A six-speed
manual transmission will be standard, with an optional six-speed automatic.
► 2012 Audi S8 on the Road (520 hp)
The new Audi S8 is a luxury sedan with superior dynamics. Its newly
developed 4.0 TFSI develops an impressive 382 kW (520 hp), but consumes
just 10.2 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (23.06 US mpg) -- thanks in
part to new cylinder on demand technology. The advanced chassis, the
ultra-lightweight aluminum body and the richly appointed interior round out
the profile of the S8, a model athlete that is scheduled for market launch
in early summer 2012.
