A recently released video from GM explores the 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector Edition in detail, showing the features and design decisions made to evoke the history, feel, and aesthetic of a nameplate that for many years was the definitive Bow Tie muscle car.
For the final model year in its current form, as an eventual next-generation Camaro was announced last spring, The General has chosen to make the 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector Edition available as an option across all trim levels of the 2024 model year and for both the Coupe and Convertible body styles.
Starting with the unique exterior paint offered on the 2024 Chevy Camaro, all trim levels except the ZL1 – meaning 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, LT1, 1SS, and 2SS – feature the Panther Black Metallic Tintcoat paint (color code GLK) paired with Satin Black stripes, along with Satin Black details such as mirrors. The glossy paint is formulated to sparkle brilliantly in sunlight.
The unique Panther Matte Black paint (color code GNW) is used on the range-topping ZL1 trim of the 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector Edition, mirroring and reversing the texture choices on the lower trims. The overall paintwork is satin, while the details and accent parts – including the stripe, splitter, rocker, and mirrors – are gloss metallic black.
The 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector Edition features panther badges throughout, a reference to Chevrolet’s original design choice to use “some kind of vicious animal that eats mustangs” as the muscle car’s emblem, according to senior creative designer Adam Barry.
A panther appears on the steering wheel’s six-o’clock spoke, along with the number of the vehicle out of 350 in the case of the limited-edition Camaro ZL1 trim. A laser-etched panther also appears on the “R” of the three-dimensional milled aluminum CAMARO lettering attached to the floor mats, which are designed to bring the look of the vehicle’s exterior stripe into the cockpit.
GM hasn’t neglected the muscular aspect of its iconic muscle car, either. The 2024 Chevy Camaro continues to offer Track Mode as one of its driving modes, enhancing throttle response, suspension, and steering. All Collector Edition vehicles are equipped with forged wheels, while The General’s designers pared unsprung mass while boosting stiffness, enhancing handling.
The 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector Edition is built to be agile and responsive, with a short braking distance provided by 15-inch brake rotors and six-piston Brembo brakes combined with the aforementioned reduced mass. The ZL1 gets a carbon fiber aerodynamic package that pairs with the magnetic ride control of the trim for superior performance while keeping 20-inch wheels.
The new Collector Edition video gives a rundown of these and a few other details, along with multiple views of the muscle car in action:
In total, GM plans to produce 350 units of the ZL1 trim for the 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector Edition, with 300 earmarked for the U.S. and 50 destined for sales abroad. For the rest of the trim levels, GM expects to build 2,000 Collector Edition units.
Concerning the price of the Collector Edition Camaro, a base LT/RS equipped with the Collector’s Edition package will start at an MSRP of $39,440. At the other end of the scale, the range-topping Collector Edition ZL1 will carry a base sticker of $88,690.
As a reminder, production of the 2024 Chevy Camaro officially started in August 2023.
