We recently said the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro wouldn’t make its debut at the 2015 New York International Auto Show early next month, which left some wondering when and where the sixth version of Chevy’s pony car would turn up. Well wonder no more, Camaro fans, as Chevrolet has announced the new pony car will debut during a special event on May 16 at Belle Isle Park in Detroit.
Belle Isle, a 982 acre park sitting in the middle of the Detroit River, will serve as the home to the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix just two weeks after Chevrolet debuts the Camaro there. The Camaro reveal can be attended by anyone and is totally free, but there’s only around 1,000 spots, so you’d better RSVP here as soon as you can.
“This will be an event Camaro fans will not want to miss,” said Todd Christensen,Camaro marketing manager. “This is only the sixth time we have introduced an all-new Camaro. We wanted to share the moment with the customers and fans who have helped make Camaro both America’s favorite performance car for the past five years, and a cultural icon since 1967.”
As if seeing the all-new Camaro wasn’t enough, there will be other fun things for attendees to do at the big reveal. A ‘Camaro Museum’ will display some of the most prominent models in the nameplate’s history and a 2015 Camaro Z/28 will be on hand to give people hot laps of the Grand Prix course. There will also be opportunities to speak with Camaro engineers and designers and special Camaro parking for owners.
Chevrolet has launched a special dedicated mini website for the 2016 Camaro, which features a short clip of its throaty new exhaust note. There’s also darkened photos of 2016 Camaro parts towards the bottom of the page which Chevrolet will reveal over the weeks leading up to the Camaro’s reveal. Check it out here and do your best to stay patient until May.
