2013 Chevrolet Camaro SS Hot Wheels Edition

If you love Camaro and hot Wheels you're in luck, Chevrolet has teamed up with Mattel Hot Wheels and built a Hot Wheels Camaro!  Will this be a collector's edition?  Could be, depends on how well Hot Wheels does in the future.

Just starting out with an SS Camaro is good enough, 6.2-liter LS3 V8 that produces 426 horsepower, 420 pound-foot of torque backed by a hefty Tremec TR6060 6-speed manual transmission and a rear gear of 3.45 ratio!  (Love that transmission).  One other feature worth mentions, Launch Control! I have not done it on this car but if you buy one have the salesman show you the feature on another Camaro, it is pretty impressive!
Oh, did I mention you could get 16 miles per gallon in the city and 24 on the open road?  Yes you can, in fact I got 27.2 driving to LA with cruise control burning 91 octane Chevron fuel!

The Hot Wheels Package is pretty sweet, here is what you get: Kinetic Blue Paint, 21-inch black painted Aluminum Wheels with a red outline stripe, Chevrolet RS Package which includes high-intensity discharge headlamps, each ringed with an LED halo, body-color roof ditch molding for a subtle but distinctive styling detail, shark-fin antenna is body-color with this package. You get special Hot Wheels badging throughout the car, in the inside you get red stitched accents on the seats and dash, unique rear spoiler, side gill decals, floor mats, painted engine cover, dual exhaust and navigation.

This car hits all the right buttons and when it comes to safety Camaro was the first passenger car to receive NHTSA revised quadruple 5 star rating for the 2012 Camaro.  You get six standard air bags, front seat belt pretensioners, available rear camera, StabiliTrak electronic stability control and four wheel disc brakes all for the sake of safety.

I know a Camaro looks small from the outside, but I am six foot one inches and I fit fine, headroom is a spacious 37.4, rear headroom is 35.3 inches, front legroom is 42.4 inches and rear legroom comes in at 29.9 all based on a wheel base of 112.3 inches and overall length of 190.4 inches and a width of 75.5 inches and what helps get this Camaro around the streets and track smoothly, front track of 63.7 inches and the rear the same, 63.7 inches.

I could talk on and on about the 2013 Camaro SS Hot Wheels Edition but I suggest you try and get behind the wheel of one and if you decided to spring for one, make sure you bring around $46,000 to the dealer, $46,720 plus tax and license to be exact.  Is it worth it?  Drive it and see if I am on track.
