As many of you probably already know, the Geneva International Motor Show is coming in just two short days. As usual, Chevy is bringing along a slew of vehicles to showcase– one being a brand new Camaro Track Concept car.
Yes, Chevrolet has already provided some photos of it for us, but were hoping we will be in for a couple of surprises when its actually unveiled at the show. The concept is based off of the popular 1LE and the exterior color looks to be the bright and bold Krypton Green, making this thing a showstopper not only on the streets, but on the track as well.
Its said that the Camaro Track Concept “combines the qualities of a fast sports coupe for daily road use with the high-performance features for track use on weekends.” In essence, the car is destined to be a european version of the 1LE, which is only sold here in the U.S. However, the “Track” concept will come with one option the 1LE doesn’t and that is an 8-speed automatic transmission. The U.S. spec 1LE is available only with a 6-speed manual.
Up front, its 6.2-liter V8 pushing a slightly lower 446 horsepower and 445 lb-ft of torque (specs unique to European offerings). It also includes an upgraded exhaust system, the 4FE Magnetic Ride Control, and an electronic LSD.
The bright green exterior color is complimented with black accents, smoked tailights, special track badging, huge Brembo brakes, stealthy 20-inch wheels, Goodyear Eagle F1 performance tires, a lower stance, and plenty of aero. In addition to the suspension upgrades, a few chassis modifications were made, lowering this Camaro’s center of gravity by 30mm. Inside sits some fancy Chevrolet Performance floor mats, a performance steering wheel, and Recaro bucket seats.
We dig it.
