“Gentlemen, start your engines.” Famous words that get every racing enthusiasts blood pumping. Those words ignite the amazing sounds of high-revving engines at the Indianapolis 500. In today’s eBay find of the day, we come across a 2010 Camaro SS that was built to celebrate the 100th running of the Indy 500. This particular Camaro is part of a proud tradition of Indy Pace Cars that date back to the original Camaro of 1967.
When taking into account the rarity and the six model years the Camaro has been chosen to be the Official Pace Car of the Indy 500 historically, shown them to be worth quite a bit more than the other models of that particular year. Which means that this car has an excellent potential to become one of the rare Camaro collectibles that celebrate this historic race.
This model is equipped with the 2SS/RS package, which in itself, adds considerable options over a base model SS. Some of those options are the HID halo headlights, the Inferno Orange interior/exterior package, suspension and luxury upgrades and of course all the badges and decals celebrating the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.
The seller of this particular car is asking $27,000, which if you look at websites like Kelly Blue Book and NADA, is well within the range of fair market value of a 2010 Camaro SS – especially one with less than 12,000 miles. Considering Chevrolet only produced 200 examples of the Indy Pace Car models for 2010, this is a neat opportunity to pick up a piece of Chevrolet and Indy Car racing history. So whether you have a passion for special edition Camaros and the Indy 500, this just might be the car for you.
