The redesigned Chevrolet Camaro performance car will go on sale across Europe towards the end of this year, with prices in the UK starting from £35,320 for the coupe with manual transmission.

Prices for the convertible with manual transmission in the UK start from £40,320, and UK customers can look forward to taking delivery of their new Camaro as of November 2013.

The new Camaro represents the most significant redesign since the introduction of the fifth-generation Camaro as a concept car in 2006. The design changes give the Camaro a more contemporary look. The front fascia has a wider lower grille and a narrower upper grille, while the functional hood vent helps reduce heat and aerodynamic lift. At the rear, a sculptural deck lid, horizontal lamps and diffuser complete the facelift.

The Camaro’s 6.2L engine produces 432 hp (318 kW) when coupled with a six-speed short-throw manual transmission, and 405 hp (298 kW) in combination with the automatic transmission, which has TAP shift functionality.

Remote keyless entry is standard, and customers can opt for remote engine start functionality on the automatic variants. Chevrolet MyLink technology comes as standard, with a seven-inch touch-screen, rear-view camera and a voice recognition system that, together with the new colour heads-up display, helps drivers keep their eyes on the road and hands on the steering wheel. An optional navigation system, with Europe wide coverage, is available.
