A few months back, a report appeared firmly insisting that the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro would certainly debut in mid-May. There are no automobile receives mid-May, so if the rumor was true, the Sixth gen Camaro would need to either launching at a standalone occasion of its own or at a few other vehicle event. The only significant auto event that would certainly be worthy of something like the debut of the future generation General Motors muscle mass car is the Indy 500, so we thought that the brand-new Camaro might either debut at the front of the Indy 500 industry or at its very own event.

We know now that the 2016 Camaro will certainly debut on May 16th at the one-of-a-kind event on Detroit’s Belle Island, however I think that there is still a very good chance that the 6th generation Camaro will certainly lead the field at the Indy 500 on May 24th. Naturally, it will not be the launching of the vehicle, yet coming simply 8 days after the opening night of the new muscular tissue vehicle, functioning as the Indy 500 Rate Vehicle can place the brand-new Camaro before countless eyes around the world.

Last year, the Celebration Vehicle was the 2014 Camaro SS Convertible in black while the Rate Auto was the 2014 Camaro Z/28. There is an opportunity that the Camaro Z/28 or Camaro ZL1 could lead the area, but I ‘d wager a glossy nickel that the Authorities Pace Car for the 2015 Indy 500 will certainly be the 2016 Camaro SS– likely in coupe type.
Long History of Camaro Pace Cars
When the 2015 Camaro Z/28 ended up being the Authorities Rate Vehicle of the 2014 Indy 500, it was the 8th time that the muscle mass car had actually led the area because it first appeared on the track back in 1967. Chevrolet cars have been the Indy 500 Pace Car each of the past 13 years as well as to find a non-General Motors Indy Speed Automobile, you need to go each one of the back to 1996, when the Dodge Viper led the industry. Viewing the next generation Camaro at the front of the 2015 Indy 500 would definitely make sense, as there are couple of other events that obtain as significantly attention around the globe.
It ought to be noted that the Indy 500 suches as using the Corvette for a Rate Automobile as long as they do the Camaro, with the Corvette acting as the Authorities Rate Auto 12 times dating back to 1978. With 2015 being the very first model year for the 2015 Corvette Z06– which is billed by GM as the most track capable Corvette of all time– there is also a chance that the 650hp supercar could be the 2015 Rate Car. However, with the Corvette selling like hot cakes and also the muscle mass automobile sales race getting so tight, it would certainly make far more sense for the following generation Camaro to lead the area at the 2015 Indy 500.
