While the Audi R8 V10 was being declared World Performance car of the year, the 2010 Camaro was twinkling in the spotlight as the title, World Car Design of the Year, was being announced. "In recreating this modern sports car, we have proven that people are just as passionate about Chevy as ever,” said Tom Peters, Chevrolet Design Director, Global RWD, Performance Cars and Full-size Trucks. “We have been delighted about the strong reaction to the Camaro. Even in markets that are new to Chevy, it has been creating an emotional appeal for the brand."

Reminder: The 2010 Camaro will be offered in 10 available exterior colors and three different trims: LS and LT models offered with an advanced, 3.6L direct-injected V-6 engine with variable valve timing and a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions and SS model offered with 6.2L V-8 – including fuel-saving Active Fuel Management on automatic-equipped combination – and a six-speed manual transmission.

The Chevrolet Camaro was awarded World Car Design of the Year by a design panel consisting of five highly respected world design experts.

The award was presented to Chevrolet today at the 2010 New York International Auto Show.

“In recreating this modern sports car, we have proven that people are just as passionate about Chevy as ever,” said Tom Peters, Chevrolet Design Director, Global RWD, Performance Cars and Full-size Trucks. “We have been delighted about the strong reaction to the Camaro. Even in markets that are new to Chevy, it has been creating an emotional appeal for the brand.”

More than 80,000 2010 Chevy Camaros have been sold since the car’s launch in early spring 2009. Camaro outsold its closest competitor for the last ten months and retained the top position in the regular sports car segment in each of those months.

Minimum investment for premium price. I personally think limited editions are pointless unless it offers something more than a few dress up bits, but to each their own. For this price, I would rather move up to the 2LT package and get the leather seats instead.

There’s surprising agility on tap for a 3,857-pound car. As your entry speeds increase, it leaves you wanting for a bit more steering feel, but the poise with which it takes to corners is eye-opening.

What!?! The interior’s awesome! Finally a car that doesn’t feel the need to squeeze touchscreens into every crevice. Your eyes should be on the road—making tactile controls a much better, and much more natural choice. Try living with a BMW ’Turn the knob to fail’ system for a week and you’ll yearn for a tried-and-true radio tuning knob too.

The outside looks good Yellow or Black would be better. BUT the interior is a let down for me. It looks really cheap. Too bad. I don’t know why Chevy can’t make an interior.

Replace those nerdy euro-goggles with some clear specs… the US produces some great looking cars and nobody right now does muscle cars better than the USA.

If I were given a chance, I would also buy Chevy Camaro. The units were sold out since Spring 2009, that is the reason why it became hot in the market, remaining its top position as sports car.

Obviously AutoGuide and/ or the writer has something against the Chevy Camaro given how poorly shot his photo of it was. Even a 9th-grader could have taken a better picture of the car with a $59 kids digital camera.

I am shocked, clearly some of the people who voted for this car had clearly lost their marvels.
