Stingray and Camaro feature at the Chevrolet stall in the Auto Expo

Stingray and Camaro feature at the Chevrolet stall in the Auto Expo

American Giant General Motors has come out all guns blazing to the Auto Expo 2014 held near Delhi, in India, through their subsidiary Chevrolet. We have already covered all major launches and events at the  Chevrolet stall over the last two days including the Beat facelift and the out-of-the-world Adra concept. But there were some international icons, standing silently in the floodlights, stunning the audience. 

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a looker, a state of an art car from Chevrolet. The Corvette was first launched in the later half of the 1960s. The rear end of the ‘Vette’, as it is popularly known, resembled the Stingray and the first Corvette is still known by the name. The Stingray went out of production by the 70s and Chevrolet has revived the Stingray after four decades. Though the new car does not look anywhere close to the Stingray, it stings you with its tremendous power. The low slung super car is powered by a 6.2-litre petrol engine churning 455bhp mated to a 7-speed transmission powering the rear wheels. With a hundred kilometres per hour attained under five seconds, the Stingray goes to a top whack of over 300kmph.

Just like the 2012 Auto Expo, the Bumblebee, better known as the Chevrolet Camaro, made its muscular presence felt at the Chevrolet stall drawing awes and sighs from each and every one.

The Camaro also dates back to the 60s when the big block V8 petrol engines were a rage. The new Camaro is a tad more eco-friendly with a displacement of just 6,200cc as against the 7-litre V8s from the past. 

Chevrolet also has a surprise for people who would want to buy a luxury SUV and are not satisfied with the space and comforts of the Germans.

The Trailblazer SUV is a comfortable 7-seater and if it would come to India, it will compete with the likes of the Grand Cherokee, X5 and the ML-Class. We were surprised to see a right-hand-drive car at the Expo, especially when we know the Americans’ love for staying left-hand-drive. What it also indicates is that probabaly Chevrolet would gauge the response to this car at the Expo as a part of their plan to launch the SUV in India.

The Indian enthusiasts have been waiting for long to lay their hands on the American super-cars and we hope that Chevrolet gets the Camaro as well as the Stingray to India soon. Stay tuned for more news on the limited edition cars that have been showcased and will hit the market soon.
