Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

Cre­at­ing mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ences in ev­ery level of ser­vice pro­vided and al­ways shar­ing the pas­sion of sports cars with Ca­maro en­thu­si­asts, Chevro­let Al­ghanim in­vited “Kuwait Ca­maro Club” to VIP ex­pe­ri­ence at the ex­clu­sive movie pre­mier of the highly an­tic­i­pated Trans­form­ers 5: The Last Knight, in which one of the main char­ac­ters, the Bum­ble­bee, has al­ways been a Chevro­let Ca­maro in all its pre­vi­ous ti­tles. The screen­ing took place in the VIP area of Grand Cin­e­mas at Hamra Tower.

The event comes as part of the on­go­ing com­mit­ment of Chevro­let Al­ghanim to the sports cars com­mu­nity and in spe­cific the Kuwait Ca­maro Club, spon­sor­ing its events and gath­er­ing, ini­ti­at­ing ex­clu­sive events for its mem­bers to re­ward them and en­able them to be the first to ex­plore new Ca­maro cars launched in the Kuwait. Chevro­let Al­ghanim aims through its sup­port to add value and en­rich the pas­sion for its sports cars and at­tracts youth.

Speed, per­for­mance and de­sign

The Ca­maro SS 2017 is not only the best Ca­maro SS ever, but also one of the best per­for­mance cars avail­able, de­signed by Chevro­let to be lighter, more pow­er­ful, re­fined, with more ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy. De­scribed as the most pow­er­ful yet, the Ca­maro SS set to prove its per­for­mance ca­pa­bil­i­ties with an ex­treme 0-100 mph-0 test, thereby es­tab­lish­ing a new per­for­mance bench­mark in the sport car seg­ment for Mid­dle East cus­tomers.

The most pow­er­ful Ca­maro SS ever built, the car pro­vides a faster, more nim­ble driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with a new 6.2L di­rect-in­jected Small Block V-8 rated at 455 horse­power and 455 lb-ft of torque. Light­weight ar­chi­tec­ture and op­ti­mized sys­tems. Sig­nif­i­cant weight sav­ings came from us­ing an alu­minum in­stru­ment panel frame in­stead of steel, has contributed in the re­duc­tion of the over­all sus­pen­sion weight. With the lighter, stiffer ar­chi­tec­ture and more pow­er­ful en­gines, the Ca­maro SS de­liv­ers bet­ter lap times than the fifth-gen­er­a­tion’s track-fo­cused Ca­maro 1LE pack­age. The Ca­maro fea­tures a new, multi-link MacPher­son strut front sus­pen­sion with Ca­maro-spe­cific ge­om­e­try. The dou­ble-pivot de­sign pro­vides a more pre­cise feel­ing of con­trol, in­clud­ing more lin­ear and com­mu­nica­tive feel from the quick-ra­tio elec­tric power steer­ing sys­tem. At the rear, a new five-link in­de­pen­dent sus­pen­sion yields out­stand­ing wheel con­trol and re­duces “squat” dur­ing ac­cel­er­a­tion.

Aero­dy­nam­i­cally op­ti­mized de­sign that is the re­sult of 350 hours of wind tun­nel testing, re­duc­ing drag on LT mod­els and im­prov­ing down force on SS. More ath­let­i­clook­ing, sculp­tured ex­te­rior that com­ple­ments the tighter, leaner ar­chi­tec­ture - and of­fers all-new, modern light­ing sig­na­tures, in­clud­ing light-emit­ting diode (LED) tech­nol­ogy. All-new, in­te­rior with shifter­fo­cused cen­ter con­sole, in­tu­itive con­trols, flat-bot­tom steer­ing wheel, and higher qual­ity ma­te­ri­als through­out. Unique con­trol rings around the air vents used for tem­per­a­ture and fan speed ad­just­ments, elim­i­nat­ing the need for con­ven­tional but­tons.

With per­for­mance and ad­vanced de­sign comes a su­pe­rior tech­nol­ogy to com­ple­ment the over­all unique ex­pe­ri­ence that ev­ery sports car en­thu­si­asts looks for­ward to. The tech­nol­ogy fea­tures in­clude: All­new Drive Mode Selec­tor, which tai­lors up to eight ve­hi­cle at­tributes for four modes: Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport and - on SS mod­els - Track set­tings. Seg­ment-ex­clu­sive, In­te­rior Spec­trum Light­ing that of­fers 24 dif­fer­ent am­bi­ent light­ing ef­fects on the dash, door pan­els, and cen­ter con­sole. High-def­i­ni­tion, con­fig­urable color dis­plays - in­clud­ing avail­able dual, 8-inch-di­ag­o­nal screens. Driver-cen­tric tech­nol­ogy in­clud­ing Head-Up Dis­play, wire­less smart­phone charger and Ap­ple CarPlay.
