After we saw the Hot Wheels Camaro, the Camaro ZL1 Carbon Concept, the Camaro Convertible Synergy Concept and the Camaro 1LE Concept, it is now time to take a look at the Camaro Red Zone Concept. According to GM, this concept uses the Camaro Convertible’s style in order to demonstrate what you can do with the right set of accessories. Moreover, the vehicle also debuts the heritage-inspired stripe graphic that will be available soon.
Some of the highlights of the vehicle are the new-for-2012 model year Crystal Claret exterior color with black convertible tonneau cover, the new 21-inch silver/polished-face wheels, silver heritage stripe, a new body-color grille and convertible wind screen developed by Chevrolet Accessories.
Moreover, the Camaro Red Zone Concep comes with a suspension lowering kit by Pedders (Chevrolet Official Licensed Product), concept polished strut tower brace and a concept “RS” underhood liner.
The interior features a Titanium color for the leather with Silver Ice accents, new black soft instrument panel insert, Chevrolet Accessories Silver Ice door and instrument panel inserts and new floor mats with silver “CAMARO” logos.
“This is a Camaro for those who want great looks and a performance personality,” said designer Adam Barry. “It’s a simple yet dramatic statement that is uniquely Camaro.”
Featuring a design almost similar to the original concept, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro pays tribute to the first-generation Camaro that was built between 1967 and 1969. Its dimensions tell well of its classic proportions. Riding a wheelbase of 112.3-inch (2,852 mm), the new Chevrolet Camaro measures 190.4 inches (4,836 mm) in length, 75.5 inches (1,918 mm) in width, and 54.2 inches (1,376 mm) in height.
It features a long hood and short deck pushed to the corners of its fender forms while a 67-degree rake windshield helps the Camaro become more aerodynamic. In fact, the newest version of the Camaro features a 0.37 coefficient of drag (Cd) on V6 models and a 0.35 Cd on V8-powered SS version. Its wheel arch openings feature a consistent relationship between the top of the tire and bottom of the fender, regardless of the size of the wheels.
As standard equipment, the new Camaro rides on 18-inch wheels, although 19-inch or 20-inch wheels are offered as optional. The aluminum hood of all models features a 2.5-inch (63.5 mm) power dome as complemented by the classic "V" design motif in the nose.
SS models, meanwhile, feature a simulated air intake the upper front fascia, with a larger lower air intake. The top end is inspired by the Corvette with the sculpted twin cockpits running across the roof. Since the B-pillar is seemingly disguised from the naked eye, the Camaro looks like a hardtop coupe.
This B-pillar has been designed to deliver better structural rigidity. Quality during the manufacturing process has been ensured by a one-piece body stamping that gives the Camaro a neater side appearance free from gaps, seams, or plastic appliqués.
Further Chevrolet Camaro styling cues on this new model includes the “Gills” on the front of the rear quarter panel. The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro is now available in 10 exterior colors: Aqua Blue Metallic, Black, Cyber Gray Metallic, Imperial Blue Metallic, Inferno Orange Metallic, Rally Yellow, Red Jewel Tintcoat, Silver Ice Metallic, Victory Red and White.
