IAA 2013: Chevrolet Camaro and Corvette

72957 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe 287696 600x337 at IAA 2013: Chevrolet Camaro and Corvette

General Motors is using the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show as an opportunity to show two of its best speed machines to the Europeans for the first time. We have the Chevrolet Camaro Coupe and Convertible, and the new Corvette Stingray, making its German debut.

With a new front fascia, improved high-performance aerodynamics, and Chevrolet’s newest MyLink connected radio, the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro will hit the European and UK market boasting a 6.2L V8 with 432 hp (318 kW) and a torque of 569 Nm. The coupe version is able to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds, and the Convertible in 5.4 seconds.

Apart from the new look, which features wider lower grille and a narrower upper grille, afunctional hood vent, as well as a sculptural deck lid, horizontal lamps and a diffuser, the new Camaro gets lots of technology features in Europe, including new colour heads-up display, one of the two new Chevrolet MyLink connected radios and a rearview camera and remote keyless.

As for the Corvette Stingray, this 460 horsepower and 630 Nm sports car offers Porsche 911 rivaling performance, now in a well-made, well-appointed package. The car is about to be launched in America, but in Europe we have to wait for the end of the year and early 2014 to get it. 2014 Corvette Stingray will cost, in UK, from £61,495 and £64,495, for the Coupe and Convertible respectively.
