The first 2016 Chevrolet Camaro in the US has been delivered to its customer by the team at Huffines Chevrolet with the help of race car driver Danica Patrick. The lucky customer Alican “Turk” Boyacioglu was handed over the keys at the Texas Motor Speedway – a stop at Chevrolet’s Find New Roads Trip – by Danica.
The racer also gave him a ride around the track after which she proceeded to sign the glove box. The first 2016 Chevrolet Camaro delivered was the range-topping 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS, which is powered by a 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine that produces 455 hp and 455 lb.-ft. (617 Nm) of torque. Transmission options include 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic.
“This whole experience was surreal,” Alican “Turk” Boyacioglu said. “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,” he added.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is available with three engine options. Apart from the V8, the sixth generation model can be had also with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine generating 275 hp and 295 lb.-ft. (400 Nm) of torque; as well as a 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine that churns out 335 hp and 284 lb.-ft. (385 Nm) of torque.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is produced at GM’s Lansing Grand River Assembly plant in Lansing, Michigan. Its prices start at US$26,695 for the Camaro 1LT and US$37,295 for the 1SS.
