DETROIT, MI--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Classic Design Concepts, a leading innovator in the world of aftermarket and OEM products for American automobiles, released its latest addition for the fifth generation Camaro, the new CDC Sport Bar. Designed specifically for the 2011 Camaro Convertible, the Sport Bar functions as a stylish and unique feature to the vehicle and maintains the irresistible appeal of an original factory option. Because of the Sport Bar's ability to blend perfectly with the rest of the car, it appeals to Camaro owners and enthusiasts.
"We designed the Camaro Sport Bar to complement the lines on the vehicle," explained George Huisman, CDC founder and CEO. "We used our proven manufacturing process and came up with a design that's uniquely Camaro."
The convertible top remains operational with the CDC Sport Bar in place and maintains a distance of 3/4 inch clearance, allowing the driver to open or close the top effortlessly.
Inside every CDC Sport Bar is a 1.25 inch tubular, high-strength steel surrounded by CDC's solid urethane foam encasing. The patent pending bracket system is E-coated steel and mounts directly to the metal structure of the vehicle B-pillar.
The CDC Sport Bar is finished in first quality, high grade vinyl from the General Motors original equipment supplier, allowing for the proper match of both color and grain. The product is currently available in Chevrolet black. However, the options for Gray, Beige, Inferno Orange, Carbon Fiber and other custom colors will be available in the future.
All CDC bars are manufactured at the headquarters in Novi, Mich., allowing CDC the opportunity to provide a multitude of color options. Camaro Sport Bars are a restyling product and are not intended for roll-over protection.
The 2011 Convertible Camaro Sport Bar is currently in stock at CDC and fits both V6 and V8 models. Chevrolet dealers now have the option to offer the Sport Bar to current and future Camaro Convertible owners. CDC Sport Bars are available from Authorized Installers and Warehouse Distributors.
With an abundance of locations where the Sport Bar will be available, customers have the option to equip their Camaro convertible with this outstanding product as soon as they purchase the car itself. With the Sport Bar's clean and pronounced appearance, this product will be a popular option for Camaro convertible owners looking to get the most out of their new Chevy. As the popularity of the Camaro Convertible continues to accelerate, owners will appreciate the opportunity to differentiate their vehicle from the ordinary by driving a vehicle equipped with the CDC Sport Bar.
Detroit Area Chevrolet Dealership George Matick has worked with CDC by providing vehicles during the development and prove out process.
After having the opportunity to review the final design of an installed Camaro Sport Bar, Sales Manager Pat Woolworth stated that "the Sport Bar looks like a natural complement to the vehicle, and I expect that we'll have success upgrading Camaro Convertible with this product. It looks great in our showroom with the top down, allowing our customers to inquire about adding it during the sales process."
