Chevrolet to launch mystery car

Despite refusing to provide any details on what the one-off will be, it is expected to be either a Chevrolet Corvette or Chevrolet Camaro, two of the brand’s most famous cars from the US.

This is because the car will be revealed at the Ace Cafe in London, a notorious spot for car fans from across the world, at a special event to celebrate Chevrolet’s UK centenary.

The event, described as an all-American ‘Cruise-in’, is designed for owners of cars from the US to meet up and Chevrolet has promised a live music act alongside the mysterious model.

Terry said: "I can’t reveal yet what the mystery car or band will be, but I will tell you that both are icons of American culture, and are a great way of marking our first century."

However, Chevrolet has revealed a special area of owners of the Chevrolet Corvette will be in place at the event.

Terry added:"The Chevrolet night at the Ace promises to be tremendous fun. Not only is it the perfect forum in which to celebrate our 100 years, surrounded by American cars of all eras, but it’s also a great venue that has become synonymous with enthusiasm for all things automotive."

The Chevrolet Camaro muscle car will also appear at the show on 27 August. The iconic model, made famous more recently by its appearance in the Transformers films, will go on sale in the UK later in the year.

Available only in left-hand drive, the Camaro will be available from UK showrooms for the first time. Both coupe and convertible models will be sold in the UK, each in top level specification only and boasting a 6.2-litre V8 engine delivering 432hp of power.

Prices for the new Chevrolet Camaro will start from just under £35,000 in the UK.
