General Motors is slowly but inexorably clearing out all traces of its existence on the Old Continent – but it still found it useful and cool to showcase a performance concept at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
In front of the worldwide live audience they presented the track-ready Camaro during the Swiss event – even though the Chevrolet brand has disappeared from Europe. They did keep the halo cars – Corvette and Camaro – in certain countries so here’s the explanation for the solitary apparition over at the Geneva motor show. Sporting an upgraded V8 engine under the hood, the concept has a catchy satin green paint and sits 30 mm (1.2 inches) closer to the road thanks to the FE4 suspension. Grip is enhanced via an electronic limited-slip differential and Brembo brakes are on point to deliver better stopping credentials.
This track-ready Camaro has 20-inch glossy black alloy wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires and also sports a performance exhaust, to deliver a plentiful V8 soundtrack. Speaking of, the 6.2-liter engine delivers 453 hp (333 kW) and 617 Nm (455 lb-ft) of torque sent to the wheels using an eight-speed automatic transmission. The final touches are landed via the aerodynamic kit and glossy black body stripes for some added contrast. Inside you could find a pair of Recaro bucket seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, aluminum pedals, as the model has been created for “the discerning driver who requires a vehicle that can fulfill both the roles of a fast sports coupe for everyday road use and high-performance car for track time on weekends.”
