From day one it has been an easy bet that the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro
Indy 500 Pace Car would be a highly desirable collectable. Built
with an eye towards the other classic pace cars before it, they
have a distinct look, are loaded with features, and were done in
limited numbers. And it only gets better on one of the rarest
versions around with barely 1,800 miles on its odometer.
2010 was a milestone year in many ways. It was the return of the
Camaro with the first year for the 5th gen. It was also the 100th
running of the Indianapolis 500. So these pace cars are extra
special with their Centennial Era official logo decals. And this
one is rare. There were only 245 consumer cars made for the dealer
in the US and Canada, of those only 45 were made in Canada. And
this is 1 of only 20 from that batch. But this coupe is much more
than just a rare special edition. Inferno Orange is a terrific
color that we all can't help but think of the iconic Hugger Orange.
The difference there's more aggressive red tones and a deeper
metallic element in the newer paint. So while this color will
always be ingrained in our history, you'll see how much more
intimidating it is every time you park next to a Hugger car. Of
course, the white rally stripe package is another big part of
making this a modern-day icon. Add in the fact, that this rare
edition has always been treated like a classic since day one - with
just 1,801 miles on the odometer. Now you know you've got a true
rarity in a museum-quality presentation.
Step inside, and this coupe has the same iconic and aggressive
attitude stitched into the interior, literally. The premium
upholstery on this Camaro SS means the bright orange paint wraps
around the doors and runs across the dashboard. The higher
packaging also came with leather seats with orange inserts and
stitching. Plus, you are reminded of how special this one is again
by the distinct Indy 500 patches stitched into the headrests. This
is a retro car, so that means blending old and new styles together.
The three-spoke steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and it
offers a clear view of the deeply recessed gauges that are a modern
take on the round dials in an early Camaro. Auxiliary gauges are
down low on the console where they belong. They blend nicely with
modern touches like the air conditioning and radio controls. Plus,
this one is loaded with keyless entry, power windows, power seats,
power locks, cruise control, tilt wheel, and a kicking
AM/FM/XM/CD/iPod stereo. A modern classic also means modern safety
features like the dual front airbags, side air bags, and ABS.
The original motor looks fantastic with a factory-fresh look and
the engine cover painted to match the exterior orange. The
6.2-liter fuel-injected V8 of the SS trim is a truly terrific
powerhouse. They are everyday comfortable, especially with the
six-speed automatic transmission. But these also come to play where
a quick kick-down can unleash the full 400 horsepower beast and its
terrific exhaust growl. So while this one has nearly impossibly low
mileage, we also know it will be hard resisting adding to the
odometer. Power steering, Brembo four-wheel disc brakes, and a
modern fully-independent performance suspension means this is a
total package that will feel great on any road.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a desirable modern classic
kept in collectable condition from day one. You know how you wish
locked away a pristine '67 or '69 pace car because of how much
they're worth today. So don't let this modern opportunity pass you
by. Call now!
