Press Release) Camaro 2010 – the legend lives on
The trio is complete. After the Ford Mustang and the Dodge
Challenger, Chevrolet perfects the revival of the legendary pony
cars with the new Camaro.
From 1966 to 2002
Chevrolet manufactured four generations of the Camaro. First series
models that are in very good condition are prized collectors items.
When the US manufacturer unveiled the concept model of a totally new
Camaro at the Detroit Motor Show in 2005, the public response was so
outstanding that the series production of a fifth generation of the
four-seater coupé was decided and with that, the remake of an
American legend. The new vehicle no longer has anything in common
with the often unpopular fourth generation car. In fact, the
designers have combined retro elements and modern shapes, designed
an aggressive front end, a bulky rear as well as stylish sides and
roof – an unmistakable homage to the muscle cars of the sixties and
In the last few days,
one of the first new Camaros arrived by plane from across the Pond
and rolled from the airport right into the GeigerCars.de showroom in
Munich. As of now, you can not only marvel at the four-seater coupé,
you can also order one there…
The Camaro LS and LT models are already fitted with a superior 308
horsepower 3.6 litre V6 engine. The modern light metal engine
generates 5200 revolutions per minute, an impressive 370 newton
metres. The design of the SS (SuperSport) model engaged V8 with a
superior 6.2 cylinder capacity is even more notably defined. This is
available in two variations which perform up to 432 HP and send a
maximum torque of 569 newton metres towards the powertrain.
On the subject of the
powertrain: the six and eight cylinder engines can be combined with
both a six-speed manual transmission and six-speed automatic
transmission. Needless to say, the Camaro is equipped with rear
wheel drive. The chassis is modern: Chevrolet has installed a
Multi-Link strut front suspension and an independent rear
suspension. There are adjustable coil springs, gas-assisted shock
absorbers and an anti-roll bar fitted on both front and rear.
All round ventilated
anti-lock disc brakes are standard in all Camaro models. Chevrolet
equips the V8 models with factory-provided four- piston Brembo
brakes which measure 355x32mm and 365x28mm.
The Super Sport models separate themselves from the rest by their
colour coded finished bumpers, special front grille, low rear
spoiler with diffuser, air scoop and air ducts for cooling the
brakes. The mandatory rear spoiler is also available for the LT
models at an additional cost. The SS coupés run on 8x20 and 9x20
inch light metal wheels and 245/45R20 front tyres and 275/40R2 rear
tyres as standard.
However, Karl Geiger
would not be the man he is if he could not already provide an
extensive tuning programme for the new Camaro. The house specialty
is the famously sophisticated compressor reconstruction. With a
mechanical compressor, Geiger pushes the engine power of the Camaro
SS to a roaring 568 HP. At 4100 rpm, the maximum torque is 799N m.
The hot flue gas stream leaves the combustion chamber via a fan-type
elbow with sport catalysts and roars through the stainless steel
Geiger manufactured sport exhaust system.
A two plate sport clutch
is responsible for the traction with the transmission. After the
reduction of the end gear ratio, the Geiger Camaro reaches an
impressive 314km/hr and even shows up the Porsche 911 GT3.
In order to have this
power totally under control, GeigerCars.de have not only installed
coilovers and adjustable sports anti-roll bars on front and rear
axels but also a strong braking system. At the front there are six
piston saddles with grooved 380mm plates and four piston saddles on
355mm (grooved) brake discs operate the drive shaft.
The 10x22 inch light
metal frames are real gems which the Munich firm embrace with 265/30
and 295/25 tyres.
