The dream of millions of Hot Wheels fans is coming to life, when a full-size, production Hot Wheels edition Camaro will arrive at Chevrolet dealerships next spring. It is the first time Hot Wheels has offered a full-size, production car available for purchase. Blister packaging and orange race track not included!
The limited-edition Camaro Hot Wheels Edition arrives at Chevrolet dealerships early next year and will come in the coupe and convertible models. The Hot Wheels Edition Camaro debuted on Tuesday, 10/30 at the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association. Get the first glimpse of the car from the SEMA show floor.
James Bell, Chevrolet Spokesperson, and Felix Holst, Head of Design for Mattel Wheels, share the top trends out of SEMA — the world’s largest show for car customization — from evergreen air fresheners to 20-inch wheels to 700-hp engines.
The Chevrolet Camaro is an automobile manufactured by General Motors under the Chevrolet brand, classified as a pony car and some versions also as a muscle car. It went on sale on September 29, 1966, for the 1967 model year and was designed as a competing model to the Ford Mustang. The car shared its platform and major components with the Pontiac Firebird, also introduced for 1967.
Four distinct generations of the Camaro were developed before production ended in 2002. The nameplate was revived again on a concept car that evolved into the fifth-generation Camaro; production started on March 16, 2009.
General Motors has made product placement, or embedded marketing, deals for the Chevrolet Camaro in numerous media.
The vehicle mode of the fictional character Bumblebee in the 2007 film, Transformers, is first depicted as a 1977 Camaro and later a fifth-generation concept variant. A modified fifth-generation Camaro reprises the role of Bumblebee in the sequels, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. A Chevrolet Camaro also appears in the Indian spy film Agent Vinod. This car also currently features in the TV series Hawaii Five-0.
On April 1, 2010, the Camaro was named the World Car Design of the Year at the World Car of the Year Awards.
In late January 2011, the production of 2011 Camaro Convertibles started. The first going to Rick Hendrick via Barret-Jackson Car Auction. Convertibles had the same options as the coupé (engines, RS, SS, etc.). The Camaro Convertible features an aluminium brace over the engine assembly, and under the transmission. Due to the 2011 Fukushima earthquake, certain pigment colors were not available to make certain colors for both the coupé and convertible.
On November 2011, the export version (excluding Japanese version) of the Camaro was introduced after a two-year delay. The delay was due to the unexpected high demand and strained production capacity. The export version included different tail lamps with integrated reverse and amber turn signal lamps, larger external rear view mirrors with integrated side turn signal repeaters, “cleaner” rear bumper appearance (without reverse light inserts), and other changes as to comply with ECE regulations.
The 2012 model year marked the 45th anniversary of the Camaro and commemorated with a model available only in “Carbon Flash” paint. The V6 was updated to a 3.6 L “LFX” engine producing 323 hp (241 kW). The SS model received an upgrade to the suspension system. All models received the RS spoiler and taillight details, wheel-mounted volume and radio controls, and Bluetooth connectivity controls as standard. The 2012 ZL1 Camaro included a 6.2 L LSA supercharged V8 producing 580 hp (430 kW). The LSA motor is the same used in the Cadillac CTS-V and makes it the fastest production Camaro ever produced. Other features included 2-stage exhaust, the addition of suede seats, steering wheel, and shift knob, as well as ZL1-exclusive 20″ aluminum wheels. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Camaro
