Put down your cup of coffee, drop the burrito, and get out your wallet. Chevrolet has just released the first official image and pricing information for the 2011 Camaro Convertible. The ‘vert will make its official debut at the LA International Auto Show November 17, marking the 21st century rebirth of the Camaro drop-top.
The Zeta-based soft top will arrive in dealer showrooms February 2011 and will start at $30,000, including an $850 destination charge. It will be available with the same basic offerings as the Camaro Coupe, including the standard 312 hp direct-injected V6 that delivers 29 mpg on the highway. The SS model comes with a 6.2 liter V8 good for 426 hp (production code LS3, coupled with a manual gearbox) or 400 hp (production code L99, coupled to the optional automatic transmission).
“The Convertible will make the all-new Camaro, already a smash-hit, even more desirable to a greater range of drivers,” says Chris Perry, Vice President of Chevrolet Marketing.
The Convertible will join its Coupe brother at the Oshawa, Ontario plant in Canada.
