HSV released its locally remanufactured, single-variant version of the Chevrolet Camaro sportscar in September 2018.
The 2SS was motivated by a 6.2-litre LT1 naturally aspirated V8 petrol engine that produced 339kW of power at 6000rpm and 617Nm of torque at 4600rpm.
Drive was exclusively sent to the 2SS’ rear wheels via a limited-slip differential and an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle-shifters.
Four driving modes – Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport and Track – allowed the driver to change vehicle settings, such as throttle, transmission, steering and exhaust, while on the go. Launch control was available in Sport and Track.
Fuel consumption on the combined cycle test was 11.5 litres per 100 kilometres, while carbon dioxide emissions were tested at 260 grams per kilometre.
An independent five-link rear suspension with twin-tube shock absorbers teamed with four-piston Brembo brake callipers and grey, split-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels shod in a mixed set of Goodyear Eagle run-flat tyres (245/40 front, 275/35 rear).
Measuring in at 4784mm long, 1897mm wide and 1348mm tall with a 2811mm wheelbase, the 2SS had a kerb weight of 1710kg.
