2016 Chevrolet Camaro, Teaser of The Body and Aerodynamics
New Chevrolet Camaro, Teaser of The Body and Aerodynamics – The next May 16 will be officially presented. In the meantime, the Chevrolet continues to provide information and teaser for the new Camaro. Never as in this occasion the American home has focused attention on the technique, because the evolution of his sport is entirely centered on the study of advanced solutions and on improving efficiency.
Low weight and new engines. This is demonstrated by the reduction of approximately 90 kg of total mass, thanks to the use of the new Alpha platform and lightweight materials, but also the development of the thrusters and the realization of more than 70% of the components of the vehicle starting from a blank sheet. Today were unveiled new details on the aerodynamics, which also allows opportunity to show a preview of the side of the two doors: the design might seem the same as the outgoing model, but the details that make the difference. After over 350 hours in the wind tunnel the Camaro has been made more efficient by reducing the aerodynamic drag and improving balancing at high speed. The work has also affected the flow of cooling air and of course the search for a lower fuel consumption.
The attention to detail is maximum, just think that was varied the inclination of gray lower front from 20 to 13 degrees to obtain an improvement of ‘1% of the flow for cooling without affecting the aesthetic impact of the car. To avoid adding external appendages was also realized a lower fairing, combined with bulkhead in front of the front tires, elements which alone reduced by 30% the “lift” of the front axle at high speeds. In terms of pure design the side keeps the proportions are already known but to change the cut of the crystal lateriale and the trend of the post, now more elongated so as to further reduce the rear overhang.
To date, Chevrolet Camaro has praised the qualities of the refurbished 6.2-liter V8, but chances are good that the real sorpesa from the engine point of view is the arrival of a 4-cylinder turbo: in addition to following the enemy of all time, the Ford Mustang , with a similar choice, this solution would make perfect sense considering that the Alpha platform comes from Cadillac ATS that has long used the 4-cylinder 2.0 turbo. With this unit the Camaro could aspire to attract more customers, even outside the United States, especially now that the Ford Mustang is also marketed in Europe.
