GM to introduce a limited edition Camaro model every six months

Article by Christian A., on February 14, 2011

We have great news for all the folks out there who love muscle cars, as GM is preparing to introduce a limited edition Camaro model every six month in an attempt to generate buzz for the nameplate.

Same sources confirm the fact that the American manufacturer will re-introduce names synonymous with the Camaro's performance past. "Our plan is to keep evolving the Camaro," said Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer for the Camaro.

"That is the beauty of the Camaro. It has so much of a rich heritage that we can put together the right combination of content. We have a lot of rich names to choose from."

As you can remember, Chevrolet unveiled last week at the 2011 Chicago Motor Show the 2012 Camaro ZL1, a new car which takes the name from the legendary 1969 Camaro ZL1, which had an aluminum block 440-hp 427-cubic inch V8.

At the time the car was introduced, the 1969 Camaro ZL1 was the fastest Chevrolet car ever produced. Regarding the 2012 model year Camaro ZL1, the car will be powered by a supercharged aluminum-block 6.2-liter V-8 delivering an estimated 550 hp.

Another limited edition Camaro will be one inspired by the new Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie that opens in July. Still, this car was not confirmed yet by Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer for the Camaro. [via autonews - sub. required]
