2017 Geneva Motor Show: Chevrolet teases Camaro Track concept

By David Bonnici, 06 Mar 2017 Events

Chevrolet Camaro Track concept unveiled

Chevrolet is pushing into Europe with all the power and torque it can muster.

GENERAL MOTORS seems to have finally realised that there’s a market for its Camaro outside the USA and is launching two models at the Geneva Motor Show, including a track day concept

The Chevrolet Camaro Track concept looks to be based on the Camaro SS with its 6.2-litre V8 grunt, but features performance gear as found in the track-focused V6 Camaro 1LE

Chevy’s description of the concept is as vague as the picture, though it does describe it as a “track day warrior” that can be used as a daily drive.

Painted in the kind of green hue that seems popular with performance cars at the moment, the Camaro Track concept sits on 20-inch wheels with wider tyres supporting the chassis that’s optimised for fast lap times by being lowered by 30mm.

This will help tame the 333kW and 617Nm of torque produced by the LT1 V8 engine, though it isn’t clear if it’s equipped with selectable driving modes to adapt suspension settings.

Other upgrades over the SS include a front lip spoiler, sporty side sills and more powerful Brembo brakes.

It’s not known if the Camaro Track concept will make it to production or of it’s just a one-off show car to woo European interest.

The Camaro Track concept will join the sixth-generation Camaro range on the Chevrolet stand at Geneva as well as the Corvette Grand Sport and the Chevrolet Corvette Z06.

Chevrolet’s move into Europe would coincide with the expected sale of GM’s European arm Opel to France’s PSA group.
