Oct 14, 2010

The 21st century rebirth of the Chevrolet Camaro opens a new chapter when the 2011 Camaro Convertible premieres at the Los Angeles International Auto Show on Nov. 17.

The Camaro Convertible will arrive in Chevrolet showrooms in February 2011, according to a press release. Starting price will be $30,000, including $850 destination. Full details will be released later this year, the release stated.

“The convertible will make the all-new Camaro, already a smash-hit, even more desirable to a greater range of drivers,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing.

The convertible model will be available in the same basic model offering as the Camaro Coupe. The standard model will have a 312-hp direct injection V-6 engine featuring 29 mpg on the highway. The SS model will feature the 6.2-liter V-8 engine producing 426 hp. A six-speed manual transmission will be standard, with an optional six-speed automatic.

Camaro is America’s most popular sports car, seizing leadership in U.S. sales with the coupe model that launched in spring of 2009 as a 2010 model, according to the release. The right to purchase one of the first convertibles was recently sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction for $205,000, with all proceeds donated to charity.
