It’s not a crazy idea.
The Chevrolet Corvette passed in the middle of the engine, why not the Camaro? That is the question that this particular portrayal of Carlifestyle on Facebook poses, figuratively and literally in the post. Sometimes these strange representations can get out of the way, but if we’re honest, this is what interests us … in a good way.
It is not difficult to see the shadows of the Lamborghini Huracan in this design, probably because this is the car on which this rendering is based. The side access and lower rocker arm trim are a dead gift, but beyond that, this car definitely looks like a good Camaro.
And what are the attributes of it, dare we say, Lamaro? As with everything in the middle of the engine, the nose is short and the hips wide to accommodate an engine behind the driver. From this angle, it is quite impressive how a car adapts to life as a mid-engine super car. Of course, this is also an exceptionally well rendered representation that could go through something real if we didn’t know anything else.
Here is radical thinking. The Corvette and Camaro were a strong double strike for Chevrolet as America’s most powerful front-engined machine. Camaro’s sales have dropped dramatically in recent years, and the Corvette has switched to its new mid-engine shape. Perhaps creating a mid-engine Camaro could save the pony car. Hold the bowtie punch twice, just move the Vette and Maro into the mid-engine world. The Camaro would certainly not have any national competition in such a form, and we wouldn’t have a problem driving the car you see here, be it a V6, V8, or even a clean hybrid.
Unfortunately, Chevrolet already had the courage to build the Corvette C8 with its engine behind the driver. We therefore suspect that all gaming chips have been absorbed by GM, so the future of the Camaro is likely to be less interesting. The car is expected to disappear in the next two years as the current generation slows down and fades for the second time in the car’s history.
