General Motors released the first pictures of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible ahead of its European debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month. Boasting the same new design features as the Camaro Coupe, the Convertible also benefits from the latest engines and connectivity features.
Launching a V6-powered muscle car in Europe where the market is limited to a small number of aficionados would be pointless. It wouldn’t sell. So the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible gets the big 6.2 liter V8 engine from the SS model. It has 432 horsepower and 569 Nm of torque, which means the drop-top Camaro can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds (5.2 for the Coupe).
The new Facelifted Camaro is far more sophisticated than the car it replaces. It comes with revised bumpers, headlights and taillights, and even gets the latest version of Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system with a 7-inch screen.
Some of its features, however, are not that sophisticated. T lower the roof, for example, you still need to do some manual labour to unclip it and then push a button to drop it. And when it’s down you need to manually put a lid on it, or all the mechanism will be rather exposed; which is not a good thing in a continent where it frequently rains.
The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible will cost from 44,900 EUR when it launches in Europe.
