We could understand why some people would want the Transformers Special Edition Camaro (it turns into a robot, right?), but the appeal of the 45th Anniversary package for the 2012 Camaro evaded us. After all, the Camaro has only been available for 38 years if you take into account the long hiatus between the years of 2002 and 2010. But that all changed when we noticed the red and blue stitching running down the center of the transmission shift lever of our 2012 Chevrolet Camaro SS 45th Anniversary Edition test car. Sitting in a car that embodies the American spirit in its heritage and trim package resonated within. The fact that it is produced in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, did not dissuade us.
For $1,375, the 45th Anniversary package comprises an exclusive Carbon Flash Metallic paint; red and charcoal hood stripe; 20-inch silver-painted aluminum wheels; jet-black interior with large white inserts for the doors and dash unit; red, white, and blue accent stitching for the leather; and 45th logos for both the exterior and interior.
Beyond these modifications, it is the same Camaro that we spoke have spoken highly of in the past. The only difference between this test car and other Camaro test cars was the automatic transmission, so we focused on getting to know it a little better to see how it compares to the manual.
