Modern Camaro Meets Ascendants at Silverstone
The oldest Camaro of the trio is not a standard road car, but a replica of the former Richard Lloyd British Saloon Car Championship Camaro Z28 from the early 1970s.
Powered by a tuned 5.7-litre V8, the race-bred engine produces 470 bhp. In fact, the Camaro is the only Chevrolet ever to win the title in Britain’s biggest ever tin-top series, in the hands of Australian Frank Gardner back in 1973.
Finally, the new Camaro is powered by a 6.2-litre V8 engine developing 426 bhp and comes in ten exterior colors: Black, Victory Red, Rally Yellow, Silver Ice Metallic, Cyber Gray Metallic, Aqua Blue Metallic, Inferno Orange Metallic, White and Imperial Blue Metallic and Red Jewel Tincoat. Boasting a rear wheel drive platform, the new Camaro comes in both automatic and manual gearboxes
The three cars will be the highlight of the Chevrolet stand at the race meeting, and will be home to a live Q and A session with Chevrolet BTCC drivers Jason Plato and Alex MacDowall, who will be answering questions from the public between races two and three.
