Wheels24's spyguys have captured images of what will become the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro convertible.

The prototype, snapped during testing, shows its soft-top and elements of the roof structure can be seen underneath the soft surface.

We can also see a redesigned B-pillar area which has more of a glass treatment than the Camaro coupe. There is also a seam where the soft-top meets the roof lining.

SIMULTANEOUS LAUNCH

The Camaro convertible is being tested alongside the Camaro coupe, suggesting a simultaneous launch.

In terms of chassis and suspension, the 2015 Camaro uses a reworked version of General Motor's alpha platform, used in the 2013 Cadillac ATS.

The current 6.2 V8 and V6 are likely to be carried over to the new version. It’s rumoured that a two-litre turbo four from the 2015 Cadillac ATS could make its way to the engine line-up.

The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro could make its debut at the 2015 New York auto show in April. The cars will be assembled at General Motors' Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan, home of the Cadillac ATS and CTS.
