2012 Chevrolet Camaro 45th Anniversary Special Edition

The current 2011 Chevrolet Camaro boasts a 3.6-liter direct-injected V6 that pumps out 312 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque. This is enough grunt to push this pony from 0-60 mph in about 6 seconds while still getting 29 mpg on the highway. Not too shabby for a base model pony car that starts out at just over $22k. We’re now coming up on the 2012 model year and because of this Chevrolet has decided to give their V6 pony car a little boost by releasing a 45th Anniversary Edition. This new model will feature a more powerful V6, a new interior package, graphics and more.

“The appeal of Camaro design and performance has powered it to the top of its segment,” said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “For 2012, we’re capitalizing on that momentum with enhancements to Camaro’s performance and comfort.”

The 45th Anniversary Edition is being release to celebrate the Camaro’s 45th birthday that will take place this coming summer. Chevrolet knew that if they were going to build a feature car then a simple graphics kit and badges wouldn’t do. New features include a more powerful version of the direct-injected V6 – the LFX engine – to the tune of 323 hp (an increase of 11 hp), a new steering wheel, dash treatment, special graphics, embroidered seats, newly designed 20-inch wheels and 45th Anniversary logos on the steering wheel and sill plates.

As with all Anniversary Edition Camaros that have been released over the last 45 years, this new version is sure to garner its own following. Its aggressive style, more powerful engine and restyled interior promise the Camaro faithful a car that is set to deliver on both the styling and performance fronts.

    man look at that car! With the lip spoiler the back looks even more aggressive idk if’s its the coloring or what but it looks mean! If I could have any car, i’d take a Camaro blue with a white stripe! I just have expensive taste, i have to have fog lights, leather seats, sun roof…the whole package and then it gets so expensive especially with insurance in NY.

    Direct injection? That is just begging for a turbo. I’m thinking v6 LNF. 500 hp at the crank? LMAO ok maybe not on stock internals but you can push a boatload of boost with DI. Sweet looking Camaro though. Very nice.
