2013 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition Convertible to Debut at the Indy 500


The “Festival car” of this year’s Indianapolis 500 race will be the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition convertible, a limited edition model that will add to the similar coupe versionrevealed late last year.
A total of 33 cars will be driven by the directors of the 500 Festival, who received their Indianapolis 500 Chevrolet Camaros in a ceremony held on Wednesday at the “Brickyard.”
The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Edition, both in coupe and convertible variants, will arrive in Chevrolet dealerships this spring after a limited, one-time production run.
Just like the coupe model, the Camaro Hot Wheels Edition Cconvertible features a flashy metallic paint scheme with graphic accents, red line alloys, Hot Wheels grille and the toy car company logo on the grille and decklid plus Hot Wheels Edition sill plates.
The special Camaro is available in 2LT (V6) and 2SS (V8) trims, with SS models featuring a 6.2-liter V8, offered as the “L99” on automatic-equipped vehicles and the “LS3” on manual-equipped models. The L99 has 400 horsepower and 410 lb-ft (556 Nm) of torque, while the LS3 develops 426 horsepower and 420 lb-ft (569 Nm) of torque.
LT-based models feature the “LFX” 3.6-liter V6 engine rated at 323 horsepower. A dual-mode exhaust system is available with the six-speed manual transmission, as well as LT models with either the manual or the automatic transmission.
The 97th Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for Sunday, May 26, with the Opening Day being on Saturday, May 11.
