2017 Chevrolet Camaro Track Concept Looks Mean, Green in Geneva

It’s lower, makes 453 hp and has goodies like Recaro bucket seats

Chevrolet has officially pulled the veil off the Camaro Track Concept, a proposal for what a track-focused Camaro for Europe could be like. It features several tweaks and changes specifically targeted at making it complete laps faster and more effortlessly.

The manufacturer says it “has been enhanced exclusively with official Chevrolet performance parts offered in the US. An adequate selection will become available in Europe in the near future.” It adds “this special model is designed for the discerning driver who requires a vehicle that can fulfil both the roles of a fast sports coupe for everyday road use and high-performance car for track time on weekends.”

Its 6.2-liter V8 makes 453 PS / 446 hp at 5,700 rpm, also delivering impressive torque which is rated at 617 Nm at 4,600 rpm. The oomph reaches the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox which can be overridden with paddle shifters.

Engineers have also fiddled with the suspension, which is now 30 mm lower than stock, and in conjunction with the magnetic shocks it has, the electronic limied-slip diff and the six-piston front Brembo brakes should make it a worthy track workhorse.

Aside from the very noticeable green paint job, the most obvious aspect of the entire car, it rides on black 20-inch rims wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 tires (285s up front, 305s in the rear), has a unique three-piece rear spoiler, as well as uprated splitter, skirts and diffuser, plus the very sexy smoked rear light clusters. Black is also the color chosen for the Chevy logo all around the car.
