Camaro Concept Car
Here are some news about the new Camaro Concept Car.
"General Motors showed off a Chevrolet Camaro prototype inspired by the 1969 version of the legendary muscle car to try to rev up demand for its return.
Chevrolet had been widely expected to unveil the Camaro concept car at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, a day after DaimlerChrysler's U.S. division rolled out a version of the rival Dodge Challenger.
Many expect Chrysler and Chevrolet to put the Challenger and the Camaro concept car into production, given Ford Motor Co.'s success with its redesigned version of the original 1960s muscle car, the Mustang.
Executives at GM, the world's largest automaker, cited fans' intense interest surrounding the seven-month development effort behind the 400-horsepower concept car as an indication of potential demand from buyers.
But they said the company, which has been losing money and market share to rivals, had not yet decided whether to begin making the new Chevy Camaro concept car. That production decision would hinge in part on the excitement generated by the new design, Bob Lutz, vice chairman of products, told reporters."

The Camaro concept car draws inspiration from the early Camaros, but is updated with a modern 400-horsepower, V-8 engine and sleek look that GM hopes will appeal to young drivers and Camaro enthusiasts alike.
"This is a vehicle that will run with the best sports cars," said GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz after he drove the Camaro prototype on stage.
