Chevrolet Says Happy 50th Birthday To Camaro With Special Edition

Believe it or not, the Camaro
turns 50 this year, and to celebrate its birthday, Chevy will manufacture a very special, limited edition of the
model.

Aptly called the 50th Anniversary Edition, it will be available in both Coupe and Convertible 2LT and 2SS (V6 and V8, respectively) models, and it will include a bucket-load of goods.

Available only in the Nightfall Gray Metallic exterior hue, the Camaro special sits on 20-inch 50th anniversary wheels, while the special stripe package and “fifty” exterior badges will attest its pedigree and heritage. Other visual add-ons include a unique grille with satin chrome accents, body colored front splitter and orange brake calipers. The 2LT variant benefits from the RS Appearance package, as well.

The interior hasn’t escaped Chevy’s touch, as the 50th Anniversary edition will welcome you into a cabin garnished with suede inserts and orange accent stitching, as well as distinct (and unique) treatments on instrument panels, seatbacks, steering wheel and illuminated sill plates.

    This looks fantastic! Very small and subtle changes make a big difference. I wonder if you’ll be able to get the 1LE option with it???

    Why not on the New Generation? This is a last generation Camaro.

    • Dave Sturge

      This IS the newest generation Camaro. You are mistaken.

      • MarkoS

        Opps your right!

        • Dave Sturge

          Though in all honesty, the latest Camaro at certain angles does look very similar to the previous generation.

          This is why I love this site!!! People acting nice and civil to each other. On some other sites, when someone is corrected, everyone starts acting like a bunch of @$$holes…

    This actual Camaro looks awful in the front end – a design mess overstyled with too much intake/spoiler ideas, grilles… Too bad it was a really nice car before!

    I am sorry, did I miss something? Camaro production from 1966 to 2002 is 36 years. Then production stopped until 2009. So, from 2009 to 2016 is another 7 years for a total of 43 years. seems the Generals’ math is off by 7 years for a 50th anniversary model. No wonder they went bankrupt.

      Because they’re not going off of “50 years of production” but 50 years since it was launched and the original camaro was launched in ’66. 1966 + 50 = 2016
