A collector’s edition will mark the end of the 6th generation of the Chevrolet Camaro

There Chevy Camaro needs no introduction. It saw the light of day in 1966, and the model was GM’s answer to the Ford Mustang that became its eternal rival. Four generations were then marketed before the model, assembled at the GM plant in Boisbriand, was withdrawn from the market in 2002. It will be necessary to wait until 2009 to see the Camaro resuscitate, pushed by its main role in the film Transform.

While the 6e generation has been traveling our roads since 2016, the Chevrolet Camaro is once again coming to the end of its course. Indeed, we learned last March that production of the Chevrolet Camaro will cease in January 2024.

To underline the whole thing, GM decided to offer a set Final Collector’s Editionor Collector’s Edition 2024. It is a set of equipment which, with its characteristics, reconnects with the appellation Pantherthe code name of the original program that gave birth to the Camaro in the 1960s.

“For decades, Camaro loyalists have known that the codename Panther lurks behind the scenes in our history,” said Rich Scheer, director of design at Chevrolet. “Selected colors and tones that represent panthers used throughout the vehicle, the Collector’s Edition officially recognizes the significance of the codename and the 6e generation of the Camaro. »

According to GM, this package, aimed at collectors, equips the LT/RS, LT1 and SS versions with exclusive Panther black paint, black decorative stripes, 20-inch wheels in satin black finish or polished wheels forged in option. Offered on the coupe or convertible, the front aerodynamic kit, included in the 1LE package, is standard, while the coupes receive, as a bonus, the rear spoiler from the same package.
