As with the sixth-generation Ford Mustang, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will be a truly global car and at this weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015, the first details about the European-spec Camaro have just been released.
In Europe, two different engines will be available. The entry-level one is a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder delivering 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. When mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels, the car will reach 100 km/h in a mere 6 seconds all while consuming less than 8 litres of petrol per 100 km. A six-speed manual is also expected to be offered.
For now, the range-topping Chevrolet Camaro SS is the most expensive and fastest variant offered in Europe (or anywhere for that matter). It utilises a naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V8 with 455 hp on tap and 455 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual ‘box comes coupled with this engine as standard but the aforementioned eight-speed auto is also available as an option.
All Euro-spec 2016 Chevrolet Camaros will also feature LED daytime running lights like the U.S bound examples as well as a set of 20-inch aluminium wheels.
