A special edition Chevrolet Camaro has been announced to celebrate the car’s 45th anniversary. Available as a 2012 model, the Camaro will sport a graphics package featuring a red stripe, unique badging and 20-inch wheels. In addition, aesthetic upgrades include lighting modifications with dark silver trim on the foglights and taillight bezels. Horsepower will also be increased to feature 323-hp, 11 more than last year’s 3.6L V6. That extra output comes from a new LSX engine that is also 20 lbs lighter than its predecessor – and the Camaro could certainly use the diet.

On the inside, the Camaro will feature Jet Black leather interior accented with red, white and blue stitching. A 45th anniversary logo can also be seen, which is a nice and tasteful feature. The gauge cluster also sports special white gauges.

In addition, for 2012 GM is also offering an FE4 suspension package for the SS Coupe. The package includes dampers for each corner, 23-mm front sway bar and 24-mm rear sway bar. Plus, 20-inch wheels will also be available for SS owners.

Pricing has yet to be announced for the special edition Camaro.
