Chevy to offer two hundred 2010 Camaro Indy 500 replicas for sale

FYI:

Full Story

DETROIT -- For the first time since 1993, Chevrolet will build and sell a replica of a Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car.

“We set out to build a collectible vehicle that will appeal to the die-hard Camaro and Indianapolis 500 fan,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President, Chevrolet Marketing. “We believe we’ve done just that with the 2010 Chevy Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Limited Edition.”

This limited edition replica includes all the features found on a top-of-the-line regular production Camaro SS, but adds some additional features unique to the actual pace car to be driven by Robin Roberts, anchor of “Good Morning America,” during the this year’s Indianapolis 500.

Based on a Camaro 2SS model with an RS appearance package, the replica includes the following content:

  • 400 hp 6.2L V-8
  • Six-speed automatic transmission with remote start
  • 20-inch polished aluminum wheels
  • Full body White Pearl decal rally stripes
  • Inferno Orange heritage front grille
  • Inferno Orange engine cover
  • Premium floor mats with accent colors
  • 2010 Indianapolis 500 event logo decal on both doors and embroidered on driver and passenger headrests
  • 2010 Indianapolis 500 event logo badges on front fenders

Up to 200 pace car replicas will be made available through 187 of the top-selling Camaro dealers based on 2009 retail sales. The manufacturer suggested retail price of the replica is $41,950 (includes $850 Destination Freight Charge).

The 2010 Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Replica Limited Edition marks the fourth time Chevrolet has offered a Camaro pace car replica. Chevrolet also offered replicas of the pace cars in 1969, 1982 and 1993.

it's interesting that you can't personally order one through the dealer. I guess that'll make it more collectible if you have to find a dealer that was even given the OK to order one from Chevy...

You would think that they would mention the fantastic Inferno Orange interior and white dashboard rally stripe.

Well technically not really. In '67 only dealers they contacted were allowed to order a true replica for a very limited time frame, and in small numbers, not quite the same as when it became a RPO option with hundreds or thousands of them made in the later years. In '67 it was more like a COPO process to build just a few for special customers than a RPO to build replicas for anyone. Maybe that is what they're getting at. There wasn't an RPO (Regular Production Order) for a '67 replica to be built, special order only.

1969 RPO Z-11 3675 made
1982 RPO 1FP87 6360 made
1993 RPO B5A 633 made

P.S. If you noticed there are no Indiana are dealers on the dealer list. There will be 47 "Festival" cars for use during the month at and around the track and Indy area. Most of those will go to central Indiana area dealers after May. Of course of the three actual strobe light equipped, painted graphics pace cars, two will be kept by GM and the third goes to the IMS Museum.

It's meant only as a collectors edition with a small quantity being made. This will be a car that in 40 years will be highly collectible.

If they made it with LS3/6-speed manual, I'd trade mine in to get it. But they lost me with the automatic....

Too Bad, I think it looks awesome!!!!

Yes. The actual pace car came with orange taillights (and those cool strobes), but obviously the production model will have to go street legal red.

It make no sense not to offer a manual. If I were looking for a Camaro, I would have to scratch this specific one off my list only because it is not available in manual. I'm sure I would not be the only one. Great looking car!!!!
