It’s a day one new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro owner will likely never forget, that’s because he got the keys to the first Gen Six Camaro from race car driver Danica Patrick. (Check out Jerry’s video of the week!)
Patrick was on hand over the weekend to help Chevrolet deliver the first sixth-generation Camaro to a customer from Wichita, Kansas, at the Texas Motor Speedway stop of Chevrolet’s Find New Roads Trip.
Alican “Turk” Boyacioglu had been eagerly tracking the build of his 2016 Camaro SS and couldn’t contain his excitement when Patrick stepped out of the car and handed him the keys.
“This whole experience was surreal,” says Boyacioglu. “Coming to the race and getting the VIP treatment was amazing, and I still can’t believe I get to drive the first 2016 Camaro away.”
GM started shipping Camaro LT and SS models to dealers earlier this month. The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro starts at $26,695 for the Camaro 1LT and $37,295 for the 1SS. The Camaro Convertible and models with the 2.0L Turbo engine will begin shipping in early 2016.
Six all-new powertrain combinations are offered, including a standard 2.0L Turbo and an available, all-new 3.6L V-6 in LT models, and the 455-hp LT1 6.2L V-8 in the SS – making it the most powerful Camaro SS ever. Each engine is available with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission.
