Here in the UK we enjoy a diet of extreme motoring rivalries such as GTI VS ST, 458 Italia VS 650S, and Continental VS DB9. However, across the pond in America an intense rivalry has been raging for decades. Mustang VS Camaro! These two tribes have been going to war since the birth of the muscle car and today is no different. Ford revealed their all-new Mustang, which will be sold within Europe in right hand drive for the first time, but now the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has its turn to shine.
Unveiled to the world, this sixth generation Camaro might appear similar to the model it replaces in terms of styling, however, beneath the skin many extensive changes have been made. Beginning with the exterior, the car itself is actually slightly smaller in every dimension. Attention has been paid to aerodynamics with vents and grills that better channel the air around the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. Inside the cabin retains key styling elements but also features a touchscreen infotainment system. 90KG of weight has also been lost for 2016. A 2.0 litre four cylinder turbocharged engine forms the entry level car of which produces 271BHP. 30MPG+ has been quoted. For those who love their muscle with a V6 there is a 3.6 litre 330BHP option. The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro SS packs a 6.2 litre V8 and 415BHP.
The new car can be imported into Europe, however, a right hand drive option will not be offered.
