It will debut in Detroit on May 16th and Chevy’s planning quite a party for fans, a day-long event in fact, at Belle Isle Park. You can RSVP on Chevy’s Camaro website, but you’d better hurry. Space is limited, as the website announcement indicates below:
Witness the Historic Premiere of the 2016 Camaro
Be among the first to experience the 6th-Gen Camaro on 5/16/15 as the star of its own event, THE CAMARO SIX PREMIERE. Where better than the legendary Belle Isle Park, home of the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. All are invited to usher in Camaro SIX at this adrenaline-filled celebration featuring track laps with pro drivers, a Camaro museum, talks with engineers and designers, and more. Space is limited. Learn more and RSVP today.
Fans who attend will spend the day doing laps around the Belle Isle Grand Prix course in a 2015 Camaro Z/28. They’ll also get to meet some of the Camaro’s designers and engineers. Plus, there will also be a Camaro museum that will display some of the most significant vehicles from the brand’s history. Chevrolet expects about 1,000 people to attend the event. If you bring your Camaro, you’ll have leg up on others trying to land a spot. Attendance will be allocated with priority given to fans who agree to bring their Camaros to Belle Isle.
“This will be an event Camaro fans will not want to miss,” said Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager. “This is only the sixth time we have introduced an all-new Camaro. We wanted to share the moment with the customers and fans who have helped make Camaro both America’s favorite performance car for the past five years, and a cultural icon since 1967.”
Chevy’s also posted a look at Camaro design throughout the years on its website, as the fifth-generation ends its production run.
“While Camaro has evolved with cultural and design trends, it has consistently represented the approachable, attainable sports car with an emphasis on fun that’s evident in its styling,” said Ed Welburn, vice president of GM Global Design. “As a result, each generation of Camaro has evoked an emotional connection with enthusiasts – connections spanning 48 years, and five generations.”
It’s interesting to note that the Camaro’s first generation lasted only three model years.
