In 1960’s when the world was awed by Ford Mustang, every car company was struggling to hoax customers and desperately trying to survive. In that time, the Chevrolet Motors removed the curtain from Camaro, a legend among the cars. Chevrolet has always aimed to compete and overtake Ford automobile company with their elegant designs and roaring engines. With Camaro too, they wanted to steal the market of Ford Mustang, which they succeeded. Camaro is also seen in various movies like Transformers, which added to the popularity of the car worldwide.
Chevrolet is a division of American Automobile manufacturing giant General Motors. The company started as Chevrolet Motor Car Company in 1911 with Louis Chevrolet and William C. Durant as its founders. Chevrolet cars are sold around the world on every continent. The company has a huge fan base and millions of satisfied customers. They make all types of cars from hatchbacks, sedans, SUVs, coupes, and Fastbacks. Camaro is the Chevrolet’s answer to Ford and Dodge, its biggest domestic rivals.
Chevrolet Camaro is a two-door muscle car available in both coupe and convertible variants. Camaro has always been Chevrolet’s warrior in muscle car industry which destroyed the fan base of Mustang and Challenger. First Camaro was built in 1966. Although the production of Camaro was stopped in 2002 with its fourth generation, in 2010 it again returned with a boom. This new Camaro packed with 426 HP SS’ 6.2L V8 engine, the performance of the car was blistering.
In 2012, a new Camaro named ZL1 was launched with a monstrous 580 HP engine which left the Mustang GT500 in the dust. Later Z/28 model launched in 2014 gave premium vehicles from brands like BMW and Porsche a taste of defeat. It gained the title of the best car of 2014.
