Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Concept
From Chevrolet Press: Unveiled on the eve of the 2007 North American International Auto Show, the 2007 Camaro convertible concept is based on the original Camaro concept, with only minor changes required to accommodate the convertible body style. It shares exterior dimensions with the Camaro concept, although the convertible concept's windshield surround, which features a bright anodized finish, is changed slightly to accommodate the convertible top.
The 2007 Camaro convertible concept is motivated by a torquey V-8 engine that rightly sends power to the rear wheels via a manual transmission. It also features a four-wheel independent suspension system and four-wheel disc brakes.
The Camaro convertible concept rides on 21-inch front wheels and 22-inch rear wheels. The wheels have a deep-dish, five-spoke design and feature charcoal center sections with bright outer edges and an orange outline on the wheel edge. The charcoal wheels complement the gunmetal gray stripes on the body.
The new Camaro concepts draw on their namesakes' heritage, but also the global, youthful influences of the 21st century. These influences are seen in the Camaro convertible concept's bold proportions, tailored wheel-to-body relationship and detailed interior - including the multi-dimensional instruments. It's a design that resonates with a generation of younger car buyers influenced by highly stylized "tuner" cars and import sports cars.
