Fast Car

Over the weekend I was cruising around town in the Camaro and the song, Fast Car by Tracy Chapman came on the XM Satellite radio. It’s one of my favorite songs, so of course I cranked it up as a drove along I-275 headed to St. Pete Beach.

I started thinking during the song…. the Camaro truly is a Fast Car! The V6 has 312 horsepower. It sprints to 60 miles per hour in 6.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 118 mph. I can’t say I’ve really opened it up since I don’t want to catch the attention of local law enforcement, but I can tell you that I’ve been the first off the line almost every time over the past month and passing cars on the interstate is no problem!

Need for Speed?

Now if you have even more need for speed. Check out the SS version. The 426 HP V8 gets to 60mph in under 5 seconds, beating out the Porche Cayman in  a recent test drive. The SS version comes with performance suspension and has a lower height to make it one of the fastest cars on the market.

Want to get behind the wheel and check out the Camaro for yourself? There are three test drive events going on in the next two weeks. Hope to see you in Plant City on Thursday or Clearwater on the 12th or the 14th. Remember, if you test drive any Chevy at any dealership, you get a free Massage Envy gift certificate! So come to one of the events and cash in!
