As expected, X-Tomi Design is the first independent designer to come up with a rendering to show us what the open-top version of the new 2016 Chevy Camaro might look like. The new Camaro Convertible should be launched a year or so after the Coupe as a 2017 model.
X-Tomi has based his Camaro Convertible on the SS version of the recently revealed Gen6, powered by a 455 horsepower V8 engine. The car is also right-hand-drive for some reason. But what matters most is, the new Camaro look just as good as a convertible as it does as a coupe.
That said, we’re still not sure if Chevy designers have done all they could for the 2016 Camaro. Sure, they have changed the lights, made the grilles look nicer, and improved the aerodynamic efficiency of the body a bit. But the car looks pretty much the same as the outgoing version, and that one has been around for years. We think they could have spent a bit more energy on it.
At any rate, the next Camaro Convertible should be a pretty good open-top cruiser with that superb V8 rumbling away under the bonnet and the car’s fancy new interior on display for all to see. Just don’t get it with the new 2.0 liter engine. It’s a good motor, but doesn’t fit the character of a large topless muscle car.
