For fun in sun, Chevrolet unveils topless Camaro

Camaro

Summer is officially here and the good folks at Chevrolet have decided to celebrate by letting the public in on the great news that the 2016 Chevy Camaro will be available in a convertible version when it arrives next year.

The top folds down completely under the car’s belt line and covered by the hard tonneau cover provides a sleek and seamless look. The electro-hydraulic power roof system was constructed with multiple layers allowing the top to be opened or closed at speeds up to 30 mph – manually or remotely from a key fob.

The new Camaro will arrive at dealerships in early 2016 weighing less than 200 pounds than its predecessor. In describing the convertible, Camaro’s chief engineer Al Oppenheiser said the car is about what it isn’t as much as what it is: “Customers will appreciate what they don’t feel: quivers, cowl shake or an under-damped chassis typically found in a four-seat convertible,”

Both the 2016 Camaro coupe and convertible will be manufactured at General Motors’ Lansing Grand River assembly plant in Lansing, Mich.
