The radical fourth-generation Camaro made its debut as a 1993 model, with the aerodynamic body initially available only as a coupe. With many of the compound curved panels formed from moulded composite plastics, the new Camaro certainly looked futuristic but underneath retained the traditional front engine/rear drive layout, albeit with a revised chassis structure to improve rigidity, along with new front suspension. Available with a choice of engines, the base Camaro was fitted with a V6 but the same LT1 350-cid V8 as found in the Corvette proved a popular option. Buyers choosing the small-block V8 (the same unit that had powered Camaros for the best part of three decades) had a choice of four-speed automatic transmission or the Borg-Warner T56 six-speed manual. Changes to the automatic transmission (now electronically controlled) and the adoption of sequential port fuel injection further improved the Camaro in 1994, along with more standard equipment, including air bags, CD player with coaxial speakers and floodlit interior lighting. The Z28 performance package added disc brakes all round (with ABS) and the Camaro remained the high-speed king in the muscle car category, achieving a top speed of 156mph, along with an equally impressive 0-62mph time of 5.3 seconds.
