The 2020 Chevrolet Camaro brought forth several changes that aim to fix a few headwinds the car has faced. Namely, bringing down the entry point of the V8 engine with the “LT1” trim level. With it combines the interior content of the more entry-level Camaro LT with the 455 hp small block V8 punch of the SS model, plus the ever-important eight-cylinder soundtrack, mated to either a six-speed manual or available 10-speed automatic transmission. These changes make the Camaro LT1 nearly the most affordable V8 muscle car/pony car for sale today with an MSRP of $34,995 including destination. And during the 2019 SEMA Show, Chevrolet revealed the Camaro LT1 Convertible, with several concept parts that look fit for production.
This is anybody’s first public look at the LT1 Convertible model.
The red and black color combination appears to hint at what the forthcoming Redline Edition package will look like for the Camaro. The front fascia also seems to incorporate a unique lower grille insert, and that could be what makes this car a SEMA Show concept. Other concept parts include a ZL1 carbon fiber IP insert, and red rear brake calipers.
Readily available options on this SEMA Show Camaro include an SS-style hood, black bowtie emblems, a gray cloth interior, 10-speed automatic transmission, and dual mode exhaust. Chevrolet Performance Parts and Accessories include:
