The Camaro may not be as popular as it used to be, but Chevrolet is doing its best to spark customers’ interest in Japan with a new special edition that is limited to 20 examples. The Chevrolet Camaro Rapid Blue Edition is based on the LT RS trim and as suggested by its name, sports a unique light blue theme.
Besides the fancy name and the custom spec, the Camaro Rapid Blue Edition has nothing special compared to a regular Camaro LT RS. Under the bonnet lies the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 271 hp (202 kW / 275 PS) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque, transmitted to the rear axle through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The price for the special edition is ¥6,600,000 ($45,833), which makes it ¥300,000 ($2,084) more expensive than the LT RS trim it is based on. Still, the Camaro Rapid Blue Edition is a lot cheaper than the V8-powered Camaro SS which is priced from ¥8,100,000 ($56,291) in the Japanese market.
Buyers who will pre-order the special edition online and test drive the muscle car during a special event on September 23-25, will get a “Camaro Original Canvas Tote” as a gift, featuring a comic-style print. Deliveries of the model will start on December 2022.
