The Chevrolet Camaro will be the Official Pace Car at the Daytona International Speedway. This is actually the first Camaro to pace the field since 1969. It will set the tone for a 21st century sports car. Under the hood it hides a 6.2-liter all-aluminum Chevy V8 capable of generating 426 horsepower and 420 lb. ft. of torque. The 2010 model is scheduled to hit showroom floors this spring. The carmaker built it on the new global rear-wheel drive architecture. You should know that General Motors plans to offer it as V6 powered LS and LT models. The estimated highway fuel consumption was established at 27 mpg. To transfer all the output to the wheels, the specialists have provided Tremec 6-speed manual transmission.
Daytona International Speedway officials announced the return of the Chevy Camaro as the Official Pace Car of the 51st running of the Daytona 500--the first Camaro to pace the field since 1969.
"Chevy has been a great partner of the Daytona 500 for more than 30 years, and the Camaro is an automotive icon,`" said Speedway President Robin Braig. "This 2010 model will set the tone for a 21st century sports car, and that`s a perfect fit to lead the pack at the `Great American Race."
The 426-horsepower vehicle, powered by the 6.2-liter all-aluminum Chevy V-8, carries a PPG Cyber Grey paint scheme with a bold accent design befitting "The World Center of Racing." A Camaro has paced the field just twice in Dayton 500 history, in 1968 and `69, and this 2010 model is scheduled to hit showroom floors this spring.
