Chevrolet Gives The Camaro A Blacked-Out Send-Off
The iconic pony runs its final lap with a series of covetable collector’s edition models.
Available in V6 and V8 Camaro variants in the North American market, there’s the option for a 3.6-litre V6, 6.2-litre V8, or a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 powertrain, depending on spec.
Production is uncapped for the LT, RS, LT1 and SS Camaro variants, the appearance package is limited to just 350 examples for the top-of-the-line ZL1, with the Collector’s Edition released in both convertible and coupe versions.
The 2024 Camaro Collector’s Edition looks back on the history of the pony, referencing the Panther code name ascribed to the first-generation Camaro from the 1960s.
“We found it fitting for this Collector’s Edition Camaro to officially recognise the significance of the original code name and share it with Camaro enthusiasts,” says Rich Scheer, design director at Chevrolet Performance. “Of course, the name ‘Panther’ influenced the colours used, Panther Black Metallic for SS and Panther Matte Black for ZL1.”
The Collector’s Edition sees LT/RS, LT1, and SS trims finished in Panther Black metallic paint and Satin Black accent stripes and fitted with 20-inch satin black (or polished forged) wheels.
The front fender will feature script badging that integrates a panther into the ‘R’, while inside, the steering wheel is emblazoned with a panther logo. Floor mats are laser-etched with an aluminium Collector’s Edition logo and complement the black interior treatment.
Unfortunately, Chevvy Camaro fans down under are left out of the mix—the couple version of the muscle car was officially sold in Australia from 2018 to 2020, with Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) undertaking left- to right-hand drive conversions—with no plans to bring the special edition variants to Australian shores.
The Chevrolet Camaro Collector’s Edition is priced from $59,600 for the 1LT up to $134,000 for the ZLT (before taxes and ORC).
