Being among the top players in the global automotive industry, Chevrolet It has released many amazing vehicles over the decades. However, two Chevy cars really stand out: the Corvette and the Camaro. When it comes to the Camaro, it is fair to say that the board went through several life-changing events. Despite going through many ups and downs, the Camaro has remained one of the best sports cars in America.
The Camaro is one of the greatest pony cars ever. Six generations later, the Camaro has become the preferred replacement for the Mustang. In the process, Chevy released several versions of the Camaro that would someday be worth their weight in gold. These are the Camaros that gear heads will hit their savings on once they realize how beautiful those Camaros are.
10 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Indy 500 Base Car
The first generation Camaro hit the streets in 1967. During its two-year production run, the Camaro quickly became the second best-selling muscle car in the United States. Due to its success, the Camaro has participated in a variety of sporting events, including the legendary Indy 500. In 1967 the Camaro was already showing that it was a legend in the making.
The Camaro Indy 500 Pace Car 67 is a great specialty Camaros that every gearhead should drive. The Indy 500 Pace comes at best with a 396 cu in V8 with 375 hp. It’s 100% classic muscle strength. No electronics. With only 104 cars built in 1967, it’s safe to assume that the value of this legend will continue to grow.
9 1970 Chevrolet Camaro SS
After a major facelift in 1970, the Camaro is back bigger and leaner than before. Considered one of the best car projects to build a restomod, the second generation Camaro is an all-American beast that shouldn’t always be dedicated to extreme levels. Some trim levels are best left in their original condition.
The 1970 Chevy Camaro SS might look like a mid-engined SS, but things can get interesting quickly. Chevy offered the Camaro with the legendary 396 L78 V8 with Holley four barrels. The group created 375 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. The Chevy 600 Camaros only made 396 with Holley’s four-barrel option in 1970.
8 1985 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z
When it comes to the powerful cars of the ’80s, the Camaro IROC-Z is one of the first to come out. Available with a T-top, the IROC-Z is a true ’80s icon that was hugely sad. Despite its utter lack of power, the Camaro IROC-Z was a fun car to drive. Its physique combined with some of Chevy’s most interesting units will turn the IROC-Z into a neck-cutter.
The Camaro IROC-Z may not be the rarest Chevy Camaro ever built, but it is by far one of the best Camaros made in the ’80s. In 1985, the Chevy IROC-Z offered a 5.0-liter LB9 V8 engine with 215 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. The real gem comes with the G92’s performance hub ratio. The Chevy 205 IROC-Z is made only with an LB9 engine and G92 hub ratio.
7 1996 Chevrolet Camaro SLP Z28 SS
In 1996 muscle heads nationwide saw the creation of several great muscle cars. Chevy came out with the stunning Impala SS, but she’s also worked on special projects that even Ford fans might like. Even if the fourth-generation Camaro is a snooze-fest, it could turn out to be a real beast after a few basic tweaks.
The 1996 Camaro Z28 comes with a 5.7-liter LT1 V8 engine that produces 285 horsepower and 225 pound-feet of torque. This is acceptable given what was roaming the streets at the time. Chevy has partnered with SLP to supply the muscle with a legitimate Camaro. After installing various performance parts including the SLP’s own exhaust system, the Z28 SS’s total power output increases to 305 horsepower.
6 2002 35th Anniversary Chevrolet Camaro SS
The Camaro is one of the oldest nameplates in the world. Although Chevy stopped producing the Camaro for several years, it remains the second best-selling American-made sports car. To honor the first Camaro, Chevy released a special edition based on the controversial Catfish Camaro. The 35th Anniversary Edition, dubbed “the ugliest Camaro ever,” is well worth looking into.
In an effort to close the fourth generation chapter with sausage, Chevy released the 35th Anniversary Edition. Easily recognizable by the red paint job and white stripes, the 35th Anniversary Edition comes with a 5.7-liter LS1 V8 engine that produces 325 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Although there is no place as crazy as the Cobra Terminator, the 35th Anniversary remains the best catfish Camaros.
5 2010 Chevrolet Camaro HTR750
Many of the iconic Camaros are originally dealership products. The perfect example would be Yenko. Located in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, Yenko Chevrolet was originally a serious muscular head owned dealership. Yenko isn’t the only auto dealership that offered high-quality Camaros. Lesser known shops, such as Denooyer Chevrolet, also made amazing machines.
The RS/SS HTR750 is manufactured by Redline Motorsports and can only be purchased at Denooyer Chevrolet in Colony, New York. The HTR750 comes with a supercharged 427 L71 V8 engine that produces 669 horsepower and 661 pound-feet of torque. That’s much more powerful than the 550-hp SLP550 of the same year, and the later ZL1. The HTR750 is the type of Camaro that will rock anyone’s socks.
4 2010 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Transformers Edition
Everyone is familiar with product placement in movies. Being one of the most obvious marketing techniques, product placement has gained notoriety over time. While this practice may get under the skin of some people, it is still widely used in the entertainment industry. At Chevy, it was clear that the fifth generation Camaro had to become a star.
The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS Transformers Edition A must for hardcore Transformers fans. Although the Camaro didn’t get anything in the power department, it did get several badges in addition to the typical yellow paint with the two black stripes. Chevy made fewer than 2,000 copies of the Camaro Transformers Edition in 2010.
3 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z28
The fifth-generation Camaro underwent a facelift in 2014. Looking fiercer than its predecessors, the updated Camaro gave Chevy something to think about. The ZL1 was already a huge hit, but it felt like something was missing. Given some past successes, Chevy noted that bringing the Z28 back wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Nationwide muscle heads lost their minds when Chevy announced the return of the Z28. The beast was unlike previous Z28s. In 2015, the Z28 came with a slew of performance parts. The front and rear spoilers combined with larger rims give the car a bold look. Things got even more blissful when Chevy introduced the LS7 V8’s 7.0-liter engine. With 505 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque, the Z28 goes from zero to 60 mph in four seconds.
2 2020 Chevrolet Qubo Camaro
Most car enthusiasts are familiar with the Cobo Camaros. Having been around since the late 1960s, today the public has been waiting a long time for the COPO Camaros. The Central Office Production Number, known as COPO, was a system available to agencies nationwide. Agents can request specific parts and modifications to fleet accounts. Many dealers have taken advantage of this system to convert the Camaro.
As is common with the COPO Camaros, the 2020 Edition comes with more power than most people can handle. The COPO Camaro is not even street legal. However, COPO can compete in NHRA events. Under the hood is a Magnuson Supercharged 5.7L LSX V8 that puts out 1,050 horsepower. Only 69 Cobos were made in 2020.
1 2021 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible
In 1969, Vince Biggins agreed to what would eventually become the ZL1. The first ZL1 came with the infamous 427 cu in a V8 used in Can-Am racing. Using a modified version of the L88 engine, the Camaro 69 Camaro ZL1 is to this day one of the best Camaro ever. Although not as rare as the original ZL1, some of the latest ZL1 models should be considered seriously.
There are several reasons why every gearhead drives the Chevy Camaro ZL1. Not just because it’s basic The Exorcist by Hennessy, but also simply because it’s an impressive muscle car. As in most cases, Chevy built the ZL1 1LE Convertible in limited numbers. Thus, very few gearheads will have the opportunity to take advantage of the 650 horsepower developed by the supercharged 6.2 LT4 V8 in style.
