The experts here at Bill Walsh GM Superstore know that one of the biggest events in the industry is the international motor show in Geneva, which just recently finished up. What’s even more exciting is that this year, Chevy brought a special surprise to the Geneva Motor Show – a special Camaro variant. There have been a number of Camaro concepts over the years, but the Camaro Track Concept gave attendees a glimpse at a sports car that doubles as a track-ready supercar.
In a press release, Chevrolet referred to the concept as “a fast sports coupe for daily road use with the high-performance features for track use on weekends,” targeting auto enthusiasts who need a practical, everyday ride but want the opportunity to tear up the track when they feel the need. In previous teaser images, Chevy revealed the Camaro Track Concept would be a vivid bright green and that was definitely the case, as it truly glowed in the showroom.
The Camaro Track Concept was joined at the Geneva Motor Show by a variety of other performance-focused cars from Chevrolet’s lineup, including another Camaro model and two Corvette variants. Experts in the industry have pointed out the Track Concept bears a strong resemblance to the SS trim fitted with the 1LE performance package.
We’re getting unbearably close to May 16, the day when the sixth-generation Camaro will finally be unveiled at Belle Isle Park in Detroit. Chevrolet has even lined up an entire special event, all anchored around the big reveal, which will be the culmination of the day. Fortunately, we expect the new Camaro to really live up to all that hype—especially after all the new design and performance tweaks we’ve seen.
For example, the Camaro now features a 28% more rigid body and the awesome new Drive Mode Selector. The extra tight body gives the Camaro the most advanced driving dynamics ever, with incredible steering and suspension systems resulting in the best handling possible. The Drive Mode Selector, for its part, gives you options between Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport, and Track modes—although the Track mode is only available on SS models.
“We wanted to build on the flexibility of the current Camaro ZL1, which is great for grand touring, commuting, the drag strip and track days,” said Aaron Link, Camaro lead development engineer. “The new Camaro will be even more adaptable, with up to eight vehicle attributes adjusted to fit a driver’s preference.”
