Is there anything interesting about its design?
Like the Mustang, Chevy’s Camaro is in the middle of its sixth-generation, similarly conforming to a retro-futurist theme, with clear references to its (mainly 1960s and ‘70s) forebears in an aggressively high-waisted, wide-body exterior design.
Angry HID xenon headlights are deeply recessed and surrounded by broad LED daytime running lights, combining with a huge lower air intake to give the Camaro SS an intimidating expression.
Bulging guards front and rear house big 20-inch ‘split-spoke’ alloy rims, the obligatory hood vents are all present and correct, with the side treatment following the classic muscle-car era ‘Coke bottle’ profile.
The pumped-up stance is further accentuated by a tiny glasshouse, with the turret tapering smoothly towards a high rear end, complete with stylised (LED) ‘60s tail-lights, a boot-mounted spoiler and quad exhaust tips.
Inside there are similar echoes of Camaros past, with satin chrome trim defining the leading edge of a dual-cowl instrument binnacle, housing an 8.0-inch configurable digital cluster.
The rest of the cabin is defined by grey and black tones across leather-trimmed sports front seats, a broad centre console and relatively simple dash, interrupted only by a curiously upright, 8.0-inch multimedia screen in the centre.
In fact, the screen is so upright, from the driver’s seat it feels like it’s canted over towards the rear of the car. Presumably to minimise reflections, but it's strange none the less.
A cool touch are the chrome rings around the circular central air vents (located between padded wings either side of the gearshift) controlling the climate-control temp settings. A simple idea, beautifully executed.
Interior ‘Spectrum Lighting’, including thin illumination strips in the doors, dash and centre console, is adjustable through 24 colour selections.
