Chevrolet’s 2015 Camaro Commemorative Edition is a tricked-out capstone for the pony car’s fifth generation

The fifth generation of the Chevrolet Camaro is inevitably coming to a close, and the American brand has some big reasons to celebrate.

Since the muscle car’s resurgence in April 2009, over 400,000 units have been sold, and the Camaro “is on track to be America’s best-selling performance car for five consecutive years,” according to Chevrolet.

“The fifth-generation Camaro was a success from the moment it was introduced, in attracting both long-time Camaro fans and new buyers who have never owned a Chevrolet,” said Todd Christensen, Marketing Manager for the Camaro. “We wanted to create a special edition Camaro that celebrates that success as the fifth generation comes to a close as the end of the model year.”

And so they did. The Commemorative Special Edition Camaro, which is bound for the 2014 SEMA Show, includes the RS exterior package but adds trim-specific 20-inch wheels, a new front splitter, special emblems, a bold mustache-like pinstripe, and the rear spoiler from the ZL1.

Inside, the Camaro wears exclusive Adrenaline Red leather with black accents and custom stitching throughout. The Commemorative Edition package is available on both coupe and convertible versions of the 323-horsepower V6 2LT and the 426-hp V8 2SS.

According to the automaker, the SEMA-bound pony car is the ninth in a long line of special edition fifth-gen Camaros, which includes a Hot Wheels Edition, an Indy Pace Car, and the memorable ‘Bumblebee’ version used in the Transformers films.

Pricing of the Camaro Commemorative Edition will be announced closer to the vehicle’s launch this spring. The 2016 Camaro, which may ride on GM’s lightweight Alpha Platform and feature a 2.0-liter turbo option, is expected to go on sale in the fall of next year.
