“With many convertibles, you have to affix a tonneau cover manually – if it’s done at all. The Camaro convertible’s automatically deploying hard tonneau not only makes it easier to enjoy convertible driving when the inspiration hits, it ensures the car always looks its best.” said Design Director Tom Peters.

Chevrolet explained that the Camaro’s stiffer and lighter architecture was developed to incorporate a convertible. The structure is said to be 90 kg lighter than the previous model, but retains a coupe’s sharp chassis tuning and nimble reflexes.
