2012 Chevrolet Camaro 67 Hot Wheels Concept
After unveiling Hot Wheels edition for the new Camaro ZL1 and 1LE, Chevrolet also previewed other Hot Wheels edition named 2012 Chevrolet Camaro 67 Hot Wheels Concept. The concept based on first generation 1967 Camaro model. Along with ZL1 and 1LE Hot Wheels Edition, this model has also made its first debut at the SEMA Motor Show 2012.
For 2012 Chevrolet Camaro 67 Hot Wheels Concept, Chevy will introduce a LS3 E-ROD Connect and Cruise crate powertrain system that matches the 430-horsepower LS3 engine with a 4L65-E four-speed automatic transmission. The new LS3 E-ROD Connect and Cruise crate powertrain system, drivetrain and suspension components include a hydroformed front subframe with tubular control arms and adjustable coil-over shocks, a four-link rear suspension with adjustable coil-overs, rack-and-pinion steering and heavy-duty four-wheel disc brakes featuring six-piston calipers.
Additional Chevy Camaro 67 Hot Wheels Concept highlights will include shaved door handles with remote keyless entry, hood that matches the design of the original Custom Camaro toy, Hot Wheels exterior badges and grille emblem, stainless steel “zoomie” side-exit exhausts, and custom 18×9-inch (front) and 18×11-inch (rear) aluminum wheels with red-line accents.
Inside, Camaro 67 Hot Wheels Concept will features a bucket seats with shortened head restraints trimmed in white leather with blue accent stitching, Silver vinyl-wrapped instrument panel, door panels and rear inner quarter panels, Silver perforated headliner and sunshades, custom instrument panel, custom console gauge kit and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Translating a 1:64-scale toy car into a 1:1 real car is complicated, as the proportions don’t exactly match a full-scale first-generation Camaro, but the designers interpreted the original toy in a way that conveys its spirit in a realistic form. The concept vehicle painted Kinetic Blue, just like the forthcoming Camaro Hot Wheels® Edition production model.
There is no information to bring the concept of 2012 Chevrolet Camaro 67 Hot Wheels to enter the phase of mass production. Maybe this model will available to order as limited edition.
