Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Special Edition
Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Special Edition will arrive at dealerships in the beginning of the next year thus making a debut as the first full-size, production Hot Wheels car offered for sale.
The special edition Chevy just debuted at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, showing off its vibrant, graphics-accented metallic paint scheme (Kinetic Blue) and red-lined wheels. The vehicle will be available in both coupe and convertible form, in 2LT (V-6) and 2SS (V-8) trims.
Some of the other exterior highlights here include ZL1 rear spoiler (coupe models), ZL1 front upper grille, Ground effects package, including front splitter and rocker treatment, black 21-inch wheels with red outline stripe, two-tone matte hood graphic and rear taillight panel “blackout” graphic, fender “flame” graphics, Hot Wheels grille and decklid logos.
The interior of this Camaro is as exciting as the exterior. It is black leather-trimmed, accented with red and black seat stitching with the Hot Wheels logo embroidered on the front seats. The instrument panel and door inserts are black as well, with the Hot Wheels-style flame decal on each door. Hot Wheels® Edition sill plates and Camaro-logo premium floor mats with red edging are also included.
More importantly, the SS models include a 6.2L V-8 engine, which is offered in two iterations: the “L99” on automatic-equipped vehicles and the “LS3” on manual-equipped models. In particular, the power generated for the L99 is 400 hp (298 kW) and torque is 410 lb.-ft. (556 Nm). It also features fuel-saving Active Fuel Management. The LS3 develops 426 horsepower (318 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. (569 Nm) of torque.
LT-based models feature the “LFX” 3.6L V-6 engine, with dual-overhead camshafts, variable valve timing and direct injection. This one propels 323 horsepower at 6,800 rpm. In addition, there is a dual-mode exhaust system available on the SS models mated to the six-speed manual transmission, as well as LT models with either the manual or automatic transmission.
