TOKYO — The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro Giovanna Edition bowed at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon, further evidence of the GM brand's global ambitions.
Chevrolet made a rare and welcome appearance at the Tokyo auto salon today, displaying three vehicles.
Heading up the Chevrolet display was the Camaro Giovanna Edition, a special take on the GM performance icon that was developed by a local Chevy dealer.
This Camaro features Giovanna 20-inch wheels from WTW Corp, a set of body stripes, as well as head rests and door plates with the Giovanna logo.
It was created by the owner of the Cadillac/Chevrolet dealership in Tokyo's Kunitachi suburb with further input from noted Japanese journalist Tatsuya Kushima.
Also on display is the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic Street Icon package. Developed for young urbanites by IROC Co.Ltd, its spec includes Gianna Blitz wheels, carbon decal racing stripes and an E&G mesh grille.
Chevy's third vehicle is the 2013 Captiva Freedom Rider. Complete with Gianna Crown wheels and a T-Rex Chrome mesh grille, it was also developed by IROC Co., Ltd.
While GM is likely to be a no-show at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Show, it makes eminent sense for Chevy to show up at the Tokyo auto salon (Japan's answer to SEMA) with these aftermarket cars.
Japan has long had a cult love affair with American muscle cars like the Camaro and the high-watt, intense auto salon is the perfect venue to tap into that.
Edmunds says: Chevy rocks the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon with some cool variations.
