We have a very special show for you all this week. We are joined for this episode by Scott “The Fbodfather” Settlemire. He joins us as a guest host for our first segment of this Podcast, and then we have a wonderful conversation about his long and successful career at General Motors. We here at the Camaro Show wish Scott the very best in retirement!
2016 Camaro Delivers Incredible Performance
Less weight and more power is the combination for performance success and engineers of the 2016 Camaro have the numbers to prove it. With weight savings of up to 390 pounds (177 kg), the all-new Camaro delivers performance numbers that reset the benchmark for the segment.
Chevrolet testing shows the all-new, 455-hp (336 kW) Camaro SS coupe – the most powerful Camaro SS ever – sprints from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds and covers the quarter-mile in 12.3 seconds, when equipped with the all-new eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.
