Chevrolet introduced the 2014 Camaro Spring Special Edition at the 2013 SEMA Show, a special edition production model that is preparing to hit the dealerships. The vehicle was shown in its Camaro SS convertible version and according to the press release, the limited-production package will be offered on the 2lT and 2SS trims.
The special edition will be distinguished by the Summit White exterior with Blue Ray stripe, hood louver painted in Blue Ray, body-color ZL1 spoiler, Chevrolet Accessories ground effects package and grille, 21-inch wheels, RS high-intensity discharge, or HID, headlamps and light-emitting diode, or LED, taillamps.
A blue fabric top is also found, while the interior features blue-accent leather with blue stitching, white interior trim kit with Blue Ray stripe, Chevrolet Accessories floor mats.
The LT models get the direct-injected V6 engine with 323 hp, while the SS models receive the bigger 6.2-liter V8 engine rated at 426 hp when using the six-speed manual transmission and 400 hp when using the six-speed automatic.
Camaro's architecture was created to suit a convertible model. The brand aims to meet the demand of more clients who want to appreciate the fun of top-down cruising with car-like driving dynamics. Four key reinforcements improve the already-firm body structure to remove common convertible issues such as cowl and steering wheel shake.
Al Oppenheiser, Camaro boss engineer mentioned that their objective in development was to make the convertible match the coupe as nearly as possible in ride quality, manoeuvrability and general performance.
Chevrolet Camaro convertible can prove just how potent it is by showing its suspension tuning - particularly, the absence of differences between the convertible and coupe models.
To make up for the diminished structure of an open vehicle, engineers regularly will make the suspension softer, making the convertible a street cruiser. Oppenheiser said that they took the more troublesome, yet better way of bolstering structure as opposed to softening the suspension. They didn't change a strut, bushing or spring rate from the Camaro car.
The outcome is a convertible that maintains nearly all the acceleration, road-holding and performance abilities of the Camaro car.
