Just 20 examples are available, and they're all headed to Japan.
Chevrolet Japan has revealed a limited edition Camaro SS Coupe limited to just 20 units called the Vivid Orange Edition. This brightly colored muscle car is set apart from regular models with Orange exterior paintwork and a silver stripe that flows across the hood, rooftop, rear spoiler, and trunk lid.
The Vivid Orange Edition wears tasteful five-spoke alloy wheels, coated in a subtle silver finish. GM's Japanese subsidiary says all 20 examples are powered by the desirable 6.2-liter V8 engine. As such, buyers can look forward to 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque, which makes for potent performance. There's no mention of whether these vehicles are equipped with the 10-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission.
Inside, the cabin has been trimmed in Jet Black leather upholstery, which extends to the snug-fitting Recaro performance bucket front seats. Chevrolet has priced the vehicle from ¥8,930,000 (approx. $66,200).
American buyers may be wondering what's so special about this limited edition. After all, Vivid Orange has been part of the Camaro color palette since 2021. It's still available, for an additional $395. However, this fun shade isn't available in Japan (there are just five hues to choose from) making it all the more special for local consumers.
Chevrolet Japan has planned several events for the Vivid Orange Edition. In June, several Chevrolet dealers will take part in a Debut Fair, which will allow interested customers to experience the vehicle. Attendees will receive a special apron featuring artwork inspired by the piece seen below.
The automaker has partnered with Number-D, a renowned graffiti artist who has previously worked with Pokemon, professional basketball players, and G-Shock. On May 20, the American company will host Chevrolet Fan Day 2023 at Fuji Speedway, where the vehicle will be shown off for the first time.
If you're unaware, Chevrolet recently announced that the Camaro will be discontinued after the 2024 model year. At the time, the manufacturer said that a direct successor is not planned. "While we are not announcing an immediate successor today, rest assured, this is not the end of Camaro's story," remarked Chevrolet's Scott Bell.
The final models will roll off the production line in January 2024, with a few special edition models planned before then. We wouldn't be surprised if the Camaro returns as an all-electric muscle car in the near future, or perhaps even as a sub-brand, with sedans, crossovers, and sports cars.
Recently, Chevrolet revealed 50 special edition Convertible models to celebrate the Indy 500. Painted in Sharkskin Metallic, these limited models wear unique exterior decals and a few other special touches. These will be offered for sale in the USA, but insiders expect they will be sold through Indiana-based Chevy dealers.
