Designed to honor the Camaro’s "glorious history," the limited edition muscle car is available as a coupe and convertible. Both feature a rally green metallic exterior just like the original 1967 muscle car.
The styling changes don’t end there as coupes are equipped with white stripes for a "particularly sporty impression." The range-topping SS coupe goes even further as it features 20-inch wheels with a gloss black finish and red accents.
There doesn’t appear to be any interior changes, but the coupes have a Jet Black cabin. The convertible, on the other hand, has Kalahari seats that enhance the "cool charm of the Camaro."
Engine options carryover from the standard model and include a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 271 hp (202 kW / 275 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.
Customers can also opt for the Camaro SS which has a 6.2-liter V8 pumping out 447 hp (333 kW / 453 PS) and 455 lb-ft (617 Nm) of torque. Unfortunately, manual fans will be disappointed the SS is only offered with a ten-speed automatic gearbox.
The Camaro Heritage Edition is currently available to order and pricing starts at ¥5,650,000 ($51,590). Production will be limited to 90 units and 40 of them will be SS Coupes. The remaining models will be four-cylinder coupes (30 units) and convertibles (20 units).
Besides the Heritage Edition, Chevrolet introduced the facelifted 2020 Camaro in Japan. It’s largely identical to the US-spec model as it gains a less controversial front fascia inspired by the Camaro Shock Concept.
Other than the new looks, the JDM Camaro gains a tire fill alert system and a Cloud Streaming Navi system which allows you to get directions even in places without a GPS signal. It relies on a 4G connection from SoftBank and Chevrolet says it will allow drivers to navigate while traveling through tunnels.
