Blending 1960s styling with 21st-century film culture, the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro is also available in a Transformers special edition. The soul of the Camaro SS is found under the hood in its High Output 6.2L V8 engine.
It's mated with the standard six-speed manual transmission to generate an awesome 426 horsepower -and to propel the SS from 0-96 km/h (0-60 mph) in just 4.7 seconds. With prodigious power comes equally commanding braking capabilities thanks to the massive four-piston Brembo performance brakes. The handling is also authoritative, thanks to a 4.5-linkindependent rear suspension with progressive-rate coil springs over shocks that keep Camaro glued to the road. When it comes to performance, the 2010 Camaro SS means business.
With such high expectations of the 2010 Camaro, extensive testing was essential in achieving a new performance benchmark. That's why, during the development of the new Camaro, we ventured to a wide variety of global locations - from Australia to Germany to Sweden. Included was the circuit with a reputation as the toughest in the world: the Nordschleife course at Nürburgring. What was learned on those tracks made Camaro's handling dynamics even more stable and precise. Key technologies include a 4.5 link independent rear suspension, traction control and anti-lock brakes, with input provided by microcomputers, accelerometers and stability sensors.
A three-mode StabiliTrak system is included on LS and LT models, while SS models add a fourth competitive mode for sanctioned racing events. The stiff, ultra-high-strength steel chassis structure further enhances the suspension tuning while contributing to the comprehensive occupant protection. A technological tour de force - proven on test tracks around the globe and driven by some of the world's elite test drivers. The track ahead is now clear.
