The redesigned Camaro was selected as the Indy pace car in 1993, becoming the first car to hold the honor four times. This was Chevrolet's ninth appearance at the Brickyard. The car was basically stock, powered by a 5.7L, 275-horsepower V-8, but Chevrolet fitted the pace car with a Corvette 4-speed automatic transmission, as well as assorted safety features. The '93 pace car was driven by Chevrolet general manager Jim Perkins, who had previously driven the 1990 Beretta.Only 645 Camaro Z28 Indy replicas were built, with 125 of those used for parade duty at the speedway.Driven just 9000 miles.For the Indy 500 Pace Car package, Chevrolet added bold graphic with a black over white split that accentuate the cars wedge shape. Between the two primary colors, multi-colored stripes reminiscent of streaming ribbons flow below a 500 graphic on the fenders, Official Pace Car logos on the doors and small Indianapolis Motor Speedway badges on the C-pillars. Under the hood, the pace car continues the Camaro's performance legacy with a 5.7L LT1 V8. The foundation is a cast iron block with aluminum heads which utilizes speed density fuel management, batch-fire fuel injection, and a dedicated engine control module to achieve 275hp and 325lb-ft of torque.Behind the LT1, a 4L60 four-speed automatic takes care of shifting duties, spinning power back to a limited slip performance axle with 3.23 gears. Around the drivetrain, the suspension remains in its stock configuration with double A-arms up front and a live rear axle located by a torque rod and trailing arms out back, assisted by power steering and power disc brakes. The interior matches the exuberant look with multi-colored fabric and amenities. If you have any additional questions, please call one of our friendly sales staff.
