Star on the Chevrolet booth at the 2017 Geneva International Motorshow is the strikingly designed, satin green Camaro Track Concept that combines the Camaro’s legendary street performance with enhanced on track capability on par with the Camaro 1LE. Other model attractions included the Corvette Grand Sport, Corvette Z06 and standard Camaro.
The Chevy Camaro track concept is designed for the discerning driver who requires a vehicle that can fulfil both the roles of a fast sports coupe for everyday road use and high-performance car for track time on weekends. Building upon the Camaro’s sixth generation’s light and stiff chassis, the Camaro Track Concept offers a host of upgrades that combine to make it a formidable vehicle on road and track.
In addition to standard Camaro V8 versions featuring technical highlights like torque vectoring or a track mode, the Track Concept boasts additional engine, transmission and differential coolers and leverages an upgraded FE4 suspension (lowered by 30mm) for improved cornering capability. This performance-oriented chassis system is specifically tuned for the magnetic dampers, springs and stabilizer bars. The package includes a new segment-exclusive electronic limited-slip differential, massive Brembo six piston brakes for impressive stopping power and an enhanced aero package that reduces lift at high speed. The 20-inch gloss black aluminum wheels are paired with exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tyres, lateral acceleration will exceed 1 g. The Eagle F1 supercar tyres on the Camaro track concept measures 285/30ZR20, front, and 305/30ZR20, rear. Other noticeable exterior features comprise the 3-piece rear spoiler, upgraded front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser, smoked rear rear lights and Black Chevrolet bowtie emblems.
Presented in a modern interpretation of a classic Camaro color scheme, the Camaro Track concept is finished in a striking satin green with unique hood and roof stripes in black gloss, to distinguish it from its tamer siblings.
Inside, the sports car features Recaro sports bucket seats, Suede flat bottomed steering wheel, Suede knee pads, center console arm rest and Chevrolet performance premium floor mats, as well as Aluminum pedals.
The Camaro Track concept has been enhanced exclusively with official Chevrolet performance parts offered in the US. An adequate selection will become available in Europe in the near future.
