The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro hasn’t even been shown yet but there’s already talk about the first special edition model. The sixth-generation Camaro debuts this weekend, and a trademark filing made by General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] may hint at one of the car’s new special editions.
The trademark filing, which was first spotted on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office website by GM Authority, is for “Camaro Krypton”. The filing specifies that the trademarks will be used in association with motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles.
Krypton, of course, is the home planet of Superman, so the filing, made on May 5, may have some tie-up with the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie due out next year. Chevy tends to launch at least one special edition Camaro every year. The last one was the Camaro Green Flash launched for 2015 and before that there were a couple that tied in with the Transformers movies, so perhaps there will be a new Camaro Krypton launched for 2016.
The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie hits theaters March 25, 2016, at which point the new Camaro will have been in showrooms for about six months. Late spring is usually when Chevy launches its special edition Camaros, to keep the sales momentum going until the new model year arrives, so don't be surprised if a new Camaro Krypton special edition is launched to coincide with the new movie's release.
Stay tuned for the full reveal of the 2016 Camaro later this week. In the meantime, you can see more teasers like the one above at this link.
