2024 Chevy Camaro Wraps With Blacked-Out Collector's Edition

2024 chevy camaro bows wraps with blacked out collector s edition

With the sixth-generation Camaro rounding out its final model year, Chevrolet has released the obligatory commemorative variant. The 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector’s Edition is effectively a blacked-out coupe whose real value lies in the prospect of it being extra valuable decades later due to its limited nature. 

Though that’s not to suggest buying one new will be a bargain. The appearance package costs between five and six grand when added to most versions of the Camaro and a whopping $14,995 if you were hoping to get a supercharged ZL1 — which is limited to just 350 examples. 

Tragically, the pricey ZL1 will also be the one yielding the highest prices at auction when your children ultimately decide to sell it after you’ve passed and be subject to luxurious dealer markups when you’re trying to order it today. 

Meanwhile, those with shallower pockets will be spending an additional $4,995 for the 1LT, $5,495 for the LT1, and $5,995 for the 1SS. 

For the money, you’ll receive Panther Black metallic paint, even blacker striping, a set of unique 20-inch black wheels, the 1LE performance package’s front splitter, and a rear spoiler from the ZL1. Panther-themed graphics will also supplant traditional Camaro badges in select portions of the vehicle as a way to acknowledge the coupe’s pre-production code name from the 1960s. 

There are a few other bits and bobs, like commemorative floor mats that you’ll definitely want to hold onto if this is to become an investment vehicle. But it’s pretty much the same across the board unless you option a convertible (which ditches the rear spoiler) or splurge on the supercharged Collector’s Edition.

The ZL1 comes with Panther Matte Black paint and a special badge with a serial number determining which of the 350 models Chevy built you ended up with. You also get a matching watch that probably isn’t worth $14,995. 

Those interested in buying the Collector's Edition should not that it requires adding the RS package to the 1LT and LT1. That should put you at $39,440 for the 1LT Collector's Edition, $47,385 for the LT1 Collector's Edition, $49,890 for the 1SS Collector's Edition, and a steep $89,990 for the ZL1 Collector's Edition. 

However, all versions of the car are technically more expensive for the 2024 model year as General Motors has elected to drop the turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four base engine. After 2023, there’s no such thing as a Camaro MSRP below $30,000. The new base unit will be the 335-hp 3.6-liter V6, meaning the most affordable version of the car should retail at around $33,000. 

General Motors has said that orders for the 2024 model will open on June 15th. But I would start talking to somebody today if you’re hoping to get the ZL1 Collector’s Edition.

    I can't believe how GM ruined the Camaro with this putrid platform. Cramped, awful interiors and visibility with exterior changes that became even uglier and tacky. Heir Yutz is so proud of it too! The only vehicle in modern history to take so long from concept to production other than the Ford Bronco. It seems it was announced for four years before we saw the hideous work in production.

    I will have to say, I do not like Camaro's especially the latest ones, but that is one sweet looking car !

  • SCE to AUX "scheme" appears 5 times in this story. We get it.I don't understand the concern. Many, many EV credits have passed to dealers/mfrs in the decade since since Cash For Clunkers, and did so for leased EVs. I've leased two EVs, and the Federal subsidy went straight to the mfr - not me. The dealer took that figure off the sale price.You'd think the dealers (especially Nissan) had never seen this before - how ridiculous.Tell you what, dealers - advise your mfrs you'd rather not take the risk, and see how that goes.
  • Crtfour It's Ford...how long before the first recall?
  • Oberkanone You get a workout driving an Opel GT compared to driving experience of today. No power steering, manual transmission, and just getting into and out of the car requires extreme physical flexibility. I favor the Saab Sonett III over the Opel GT. If I'm buying a tiny two seat 1972 odd car I'm going all in.
  • Lou_BC Ford's on strike. Using photos of Fords is like crossing a picket line. ;)
  • Lou_BC Not my problem. Buying anything on credit is a risk for buyer and seller.
