Chevrolet recently built a 2023 Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible to commemorate the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500. To recognize this, they created 50 special cars that were presented all together at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where the IndyCar season’s biggest race takes place.
The new Chevy Camaro SS is a supercharged car with a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that generates 455 horsepower! Plus, it has the new Sharkskin Metallic color option and even some exclusive Indy 500 graphics designed just for this car.
The tradition of revealing the Festival Event Car has been around since the 1960s. During this time, officials drive these cars on public roads as part of the celebrations before the Indy 500 race. After the race is over, they are put up for sale.
A spokesperson from Chevrolet recently told Automotive News that the latest model of Festival Event Cars will be sold when the race is held on May 28th. Furthermore, each car comes with a special option code.
Chevrolet has announced that the Camaro will no longer be sold after the 2024 model year and production of it will finish in January. This means this is probably going to be the last special-edition Camaro, at least in its current design.
It looks like Chevy might be bringing the Camaro back, but this time as an electric car. People have been saying it won’t be just a regular sedan, but maybe an electric SUV! It’s also possible that the Corvette will get its own electrified SUV model.
