Plenty of news there, too. This concept was to display a combination of various parts from the Chevrolet Camaro's accessories catalog of both current and conceptual pieces to provide a different appearance from the other Camaro models. Surprisingly, the exhaust is on the quiet side at low revs, but it comes alive with fantastic, throbbing V-8 sounds the closer the tachometer needle gets to its 6500-rpm redline. For a car this big to pull 0. Engine still very green, though -- just 867 miles; our Matt Stone reckons Chevy small blocks typically need 5000 miles before they're in the sweet spot. The engine has a power output of 425 hp 317 kW with the help of a custom air-to-air intercooler that feeds 7 pounds of boost pressure into the engine. The concept was inspired by the 1969 Camaro.
The car just felt so forgiving, the shifter felt so light almost as if it didnt even have a spring guiding it and the clutch felt so smooth. On the other hand, Uncle Isaac just doesn't grasp the more subtle appeal of man-size cabin quarters and a classic bandit grille. Driving it made me so nervous because I would be afraid of rolling back into the car behind me, and trust me, you notice how ridiculously close other vehicles get when you are driving a manual. It was made known that the Synergy car being shown at the 2010 event was not just going to be a concept but that it would be made available to the general public to purchase for the 2011 year model run. All accessories that were displayed on the concept Camaro were finished in the production Cyber Grey exterior color. Immediately, the subjective impressions -- good and bad -- began flowing into our neural data loggers. Whatever its powertrain guise, the feels like a very grown-up, highly polished machine.
No Camaro Convertibles produced from the factory ever provided a different color windshield surround other than the produced body color. Otherwise, once set in a corner, the Camaro feels exceptionally planted. Only 69 units were made. Yet of course modernity abounds as well. Production was limited to 294 units, the majority of which were produced in automatics and a few had manual transmissions Mostly Canadian. And the best part is the loud crackles the exhaust shoots out when slowing to a stop.
Simply too much mass to hustle around. Wife wont drive veh now because of this. Ed Loh: Touchy clutch on the Camaro means it's the only one I stalled. Auto' trannys are the way to go if you drag race, but they aren't as much fun, and a stick is more fun in every other dicipline. Third of three, but hardly last. A 21st century sports car would probably use a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, with some sort of hybrid assist and a dual-clutch transmission with an aluminum chassis and carbon fiber body panels to keep weight down to a minimum.
Numbers, of course, relate only a fraction of the story. I had the pressure plate bolts replaced under warranty after my transmission failed to shift into first, second, or any of the other gears suddenly after 14,000miles of adult driven normal use. On my drives up and down Sunrise, the Challenger was the only car that substantially engaged stability control. However they did not notify me as a new owner of this potentially dangerous defect and did not even notify my dealer until I brought the car in. Transmission fluid circulates through that heat exchanger and through the radiator to drop operating temps by more than 100 °F 38 °C. Im stuck in traffic almost everyday but i wouldnt give it up because i enjoy my weekend canyon drives. At one of our photo stops, a group of young guys carefully perused each of our players.
I have had many, many camaros both with sticks and autos. Manuals start out mostly fun, kind of annoying, and just become more annoying and less fun every single day you own one. If you're just daily driving it which is perfectly fine! While im in traffic--when its not shifting to bad, it gets what I call gear clash, or tech term is that it is the syncros in transmission grinding going into gears as you shift. The clutch pedal is long and the shifter is heavy and notchy. Which is to say, on the subjective subject of styling, each of these ponies scores well. It is humanly impossible to shift a manual tranny faster than a auto can. Besides the power upgrades, the vehicle also gets an upgraded Centerforce clutch and pressure plate for the six-speed manual transmission, an upgraded Be-Cool radiator, 6-piston brake package, a Pedders coil-over lowering kit, and a bodykit that includes a new rear diffuser as well as a revised front fascia and hood with additional vents for the brakes and engine.
Production of the add-on package ceased on January 12, 2010 with an estimated 1,500 units produced. Yet nothing of the sort has occurred.

This edition of the Camaro was the only batch of units that were to follow trimming keys of that from the 2007 Camaro Convertible Concept with the Silver painted Window surround, interior leather trim placements, and wide spoke wheels. I have driven stick most of my life but going to the Camaro was another learning curve in itself. People turn and stare and elbow their friends without taking their eyes off you in a way rarely inspired by affordable cars. The massive brakes are up to the task and the 20-inch rims with big Pirelli tires help the car hold on in the corners and get the power to the ground on the straights.
Claudia in the paperwork department was nice as well. Jeep at the Wixom plant. The L99 is rated at 16 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway. The interior also featured the same black theme as the exterior. The current mileage was approximately 3,600. The concept was further enhanced with a Pedders coil-over lowering kit and a set of large brakes. The transmissions will prevent you from engaging into first gear and second gear at certain times.
