Car and Driver: 50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro SS to Pace 2016 Indy 500


Recommended Posts



Excepting the one time the goofball Chevrolet SSR convertible pickup was used, a Camaro or Corvette has paced the Indianapolis 500 each of the last 13 years. Next month, it’ll be the Camaro’s turn as the 2017 SS 50th Anniversary Edition laps the Brickyard.




IndyCar/Nascar/V8 Supercars team owner, former pro driver, and car-dealership magnate Roger Penske will command one of four white Camaro SS coupes for the Indy 500’s 100th race. The second-gen Camaro is unchanged for 2017 save for a 50th Anniversary Edition package that will be offered this summer. The package, which includes the RS Appearance kit and a whole lot of other stuff you can read about here, will be available on 2LT and 2SS coupes and convertibles, albeit without the replica decals of recent Camaro pace cars (which paced in 2014, 2011, 2010, and 2009). Substituting the pace car’s bright white is a subtle shade of dark gray.


Team Penske’s Juan Pablo Montoya won the 2015 Indy 500, marking the outfit’s 16th victory—the highest of any team. The Camaro has paced the Indy 500 eight other times, and a General Motors vehicle, including such legendary models like the Oldsmobile Bravada and the Chevrolet Beretta, has led the pack for 38 out of the last 45 years.
