Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Edition

The 2017 Camaro Is Heading This Way

The 50th Anniversary Camaro SS packs a punch with its powerful engine, impressive handling, and truly one-of-a-kind design. This new edition will be featured as the official pace vehicle for the Indianapolis 500, and it will be driving by racing icon Roger Penske.

The new 2017 Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Edition comes with a 455-horsepower engine, making it one of the few pace cars that does not require performance modifications. This will also be the ninth time a Camaro has served as a pace car, and the 27th time Chevrolet has had the honors. In fact, Chevrolet has been leading racers at Indianapolis speedway since 1948.

“Chevrolet and the Indianapolis 500 have a long, storied history and it’s an honor to mark the respective milestones of the Indy 500 race and the Camaro simultaneously,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president of Global Product Development and Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “It’s also a privilege to have Roger Penske perform the driving duties, as his team has helped Chevrolet earn four consecutive IndyCar manufacturer titles since 2012.”

The new Camaro SS will come with special 20-inch wheels, a body-color front splitter, unique grille, chrome accents, Orange brake calipers, and a black leather and suede interior. Best of all, the anniversary edition has special treatments and badges to show off its unique style.
