Convertible 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Spied Along with New V6 Camaro Variant

by SpeedLux

It is the norm these days for automakers to put their test mules in the streets before their new models are released. However, these test mules are covered in heavy camouflage most of the time. Yet, for car enthusiasts, sometimes, the camouflage just does not quite do its job, as in the case of the test mules from Chevrolet that got spotted only recently. For the first time ever, someone has managed to capture an image of what very likely seems to be the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro in its convertible version. If you compare this heavily camouflaged test mule to the hardtop version, you will see that this one features a roofline that is lower, in addition to a C-pillar that has a rather different design compared to the hardtop variant of the model. All these emphasizes that this test mule is a drop-top car.

What is also very interesting is the fact that the very same person who captured the image of the convertible next-generation Camaro also managed to capture another car in his photograph. This car seems to be a 3rd generation F-body Camaro from the eighties. The car was spotted wandering around with manufacturer plates and it was potentially hiding something quite special under that classic bodywork.

To make things even more interesting, it turns out that the person in charge of snapping the spy shot image is a mechanic. He claims that the 80s Camaro he saw featured an intercooler and that the car emitted a sound as if it was packing a V6 turbocharged engine under its hood. This is interesting because recent rumors suggest that the next-generation Chevy Camaro will take advantage of a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, which is also used by Cadillac. Now, if the 80s Camaro really features a V6 turbocharged engine, we may as well see a 2016 Camaro that features a revised version of the engine used by the Cadillac CTS, a 3.6L V6 engine with twin turbochargers. With this engine, the CTS can output 420 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque in total.
