It’s exciting that a special Chevrolet Camaro edition inspired by Hot Wheels was unveiled at the recently held Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas. But what’s even better news is that limited numbers of the Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition will arrive at showrooms early next year. Chevrolet showed off the production Camaro Hot Wheels car at the SEMA show a year after it presented a bright-green concept car based on the Hot Wheels toys.
Even if the real-world Camaro doesn’t have an orange track with loop-the-loops, it uses one-of-a-kind Kinetic Blue paint, the front grille and rear spoiler from the Camaro ZL1, a new front lip and side skirts, a set of 21-inch wheels with a red lip, matte-black accents for the hood and between the taillights, and a variety of Hot Wheels logos.
In a statement, Chevrolet marketing vice president Chris Perry said that kids of all ages will be able to relive their memories with Chevrolet’s release of this special production model of the Camaro Hot Wheels. Buyers can choose from either a 323-hp 3.6-liter V-6 or a 426-hp 6.2-liter V-8 engine, with each accompanied with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
Chevrolet will offer both coupe and convertible models. The interior includes leather upholstery with red stitching, Hot Wheels Edition door-sill plates, red-accented floor mats, Hot Wheels logos, and the Chevrolet MyLink touchscreen infotainment system. It’s interesting how the relationship between Hot Wheels toys and the Chevrolet Camaro began. When the 1:64-scale models were launched in 1968, a Custom Camaro was one of the first 16 Hot Wheels cars ever sold.
The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro’s styling is almost similar to the original model. This way, the latest model upholds the DNA of the first-generation Camaro, manufactured from 1967 through 1969. The two-door athletic vehicle draws attention to its established proportions over a 2,852 mm wheelbase. The total length of the Chevy is 4,836 mm; the width is 1,918 mm and the height is 1,376 mm.
The lengthy bonnet and petite trunk are shoved to the edge of the muscular mudguard figure. A fast, 67-degree windscreen rake provides for more aerodynamics that consists of a 0.37 coefficient of turbulence (Cd) on V-6 models and a faintly smoother 0.35 Cd on the V-8-powered SS model.
The arc-shaped cavity housing the wheel was given a lot of consideration during the styling process. Whether stocked with the optional 19-inch or 20-inch wheels or the standard 18-inch, the distance of the top of the tire and bottom of the fender is constant on every model. The classic "V" style logo at the front, along with a 63.5 mm power dome in the aluminum bonnet is present in all models. The features are indicative of Chevy Camaro models. A virtual air intake is placed in the upper front fascia and the lower air intake is relatively larger on SS models.
Designers adopt a design cue from Corvette and carved twin compartments through the roof to give the car a recognizable Chevy appearance. From the exterior, the B-pillar cannot be seen offering the outstanding look of a rigid roof. B-pillar is styled to offer enhanced basic firmness to the car. To guarantee quality in the course of the production, a one-piece body imprinting offers a cleaner side display. Due to the imprint technology, the sides are gapless and free of plastic trimmings. "Gills" placed at the face of the rear quarter panel are also distinct Chevy Camaro design cues.
