GM today unveiled the this special edition 45th anniversary Chevrolet Camaro that thumbs it’s nose at the Mustang…at least when it comes to horsepower.
The 2012 Chevy Camaro with the 3.6-liter direct-injection V6 will now boast 323 horsepower. If you are keeping track…that’s 11 more ponies over the 2011 model, and perhaps more importantly 18 more horsepower as compared to the 2011 305 HP Mustang.
And we’re betting that a lot of people do keep track.
According to GM the 45th anniversary Chevrolet Camaro will include, “a revised instrument panel appearance, with new instrument graphics and trim, as well as a new steering wheel design and a power lift feature for the front passenger seat.”
“The appeal of Camaro design and performance has powered it to the top of its segment,” said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “For 2012, we’re capitalizing on that momentum with enhancements to Camaro’s performance and comfort.”
Also look for sinister 20-inch wheels and jet black seats with very American red, white and blue stitching, plus a special red stripe and of course plenty of 45th anniversary badges.
