Chevrolet designed the Camaro concept to compete against the Ford Shelby GT500, and Dodge Challenger in the retro pony car race of the 21st century.

The 2006 concept Camaro was first shown at the Detroit Auto Show. The concept drew strongly on the Camaro's of the 1960's, themselves American motoring icons. The powerful rear arches of the Camaro concept emphasise the rear wheel drive layout and also help cover the enormous 22" rear wheels.

Powered by a thoroughly modern, 400 horsepower, 6 litre LS2 V8, mated to a six speed manual gearbox and featuring fully independent suspension the Camaro concept is far more advanced than its predecessors. But like its forebears, the new Camaro is intended as a performance car which is practical enough for everyday use. Part of its practicality comes from its fuel efficient engine which deactivates 4 of the 8 cylinders when the vehicle is cruising, and full power is not needed.

The Camaro Concept was used by GM to gauge public opinion and see if there is room for another muscle car in the American market. Clearly there was, as the car went into production a couple of years later.
