Chevrolet Camaro SS Indianapolis 500 pace car

All Camaro lovers as well as Indianapolis 500 entusiasts, listen up! Chevrolet has decided to build and sell a 2010 Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Replica Limited Edition. This limited edition replica will have all of the features found on the regular production Camaro SS with an RS appearance package as well as some special features from the pace car that will be driven by Robin Roberts during this year’s Indianapolis 500.

“We set out to build a collectible vehicle that will appeal to the die-hard Camaro and Indianapolis 500 fan,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President, Chevrolet Marketing. “We believe we’ve done just that with the 2010 Chevy Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Limited Edition.”

Only 200 replicas will be made and sold for an MSRP of $$41,950 in about 187 selected dealers. This figure is surprisingly low in comparison to the number of replicas produced in 1969 (3,675), 1982 (6,000), and 1993 (633).

Chevy’s decision to produce a replica for the 2010 Camaro Pace car comes as a shock to us considering only a year ago they stated they would not be producing it claiming they needed to keep limited edition replicas “special”. Instead, they had decided to produce a Bumblebee Camaro replica. We are indeed happy to hear they will be producing it even though it will be limited to only 200 cars.

Follow the jump to check out the specs for the 2010 Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car replica and the official press release.

2010 Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car replica specifications:

- 400 hp 6.2L V-8 engine
- Six-speed automatic transmission with remote start

They make this replicas for collector’s item! I think so much for the love of those logos and stripes. BTW, those stripes made me remind of the Dodge Challenger..smiley

Last 2009 it was the first time that the Chevy comes up with the replica idea! They make around 6,000 replica units using their 1960’s and 1980’s as a model car.

00 cars is a lot of cars for replica. If I own that company and the design of the car, I would never allow the production and distribution of those cars as replicas.

This is a must have camaro Indianapolis edition 500 Pace Car. They are only 500 of these in the world. So what are you waiting for muscle car fanatics?
