Remember the Chevy Camaro Dusk Edition that first debuted at the SEMA show in 2009? It was a tricked-out Camaro that wore a particularly arresting shade of blue and was promoted as “a car with an international flair, bringing the Camaro to a place it hasn't traditionally been. It is a very tailored look that is stylish and sophisticated, but with a distinct American accent."
Well, it finally dawned on Chevy that getting the vehicle to its customers would be a good idea, and you’ll soon be able to order one for yourself: The 2013 Chevy Camaro Dusk Edition will begin production in August in both V6 and V8 configurations, at the up-level 2LT and 2SS trim levels. And yes, both coupe and convertible versions will be offered, with the driver’s choice of a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission.
The limited-run Dusk Edition pays tribute to the SEMA original with a Blue Ray Metallic exterior finish that’s matched with a blue soft-top in convertible models. And because the car also includes the Camaro RS appearance package, even the roof moldings get that dusky shade of blue. Big 21-inch Silver Painted wheels make an appearance as well—sort of like the first stars in the evening sky? An aero-style front splitter and rocker add a stronger presence, too.
The cabin is highlighted by Mojave leather with yellow accent stitching, for a nice contrast with the exterior, but designers also have incorporated Blue Ray Metallic highlights into the door and instrument panels as well. The look is complemented by Ice Blue ambient lighting and premium floor mats from Chevy Accessories.
The 2013 Chevy Camaro Dusk Edition will require a $5,995 premium as compared to its non-nocturnally natured counterparts.
