Camaro wins 'best concept car'

from the Detroit Free Press

The 65-m.p.g. Ford Reflex's win as 'most-significant concept' was unexpected. Most observers thought the Chevrolet Camaro would take the top award.

"We would like to see something like" the Reflex "go into production someday," said Ford designer Pat Schiavone. The 400-horsepower Camaro won the category for best concept car.

"Our goal was to capture the history and essence of the Camaro," GM designer Jeff Perkins said of the futuristic car. "We wanted to make sure true Camaro buyers loved the car, but more importantly to capture new buyers." The sport coupe is widely expected to hit the road in two or three years
