The Chevy has also been equipped with orange brakes callipers, tinted taillights and a revised grille that features Galvano Chrome inserts.
Rounding out to the exterior changes are a Satin Graphite ground effect package, black bowtie emblems and 20-inch forged aluminium wheels with a unique centre cap. Lastly, there are anniversary badges on the front fenders.
The styling changes do not end here, the designers installed black leather seats with orange inserts and orange contrast stitching.

Other highlights include illuminated doorsill plates, special floor mats, and a 50th Anniversary Hot Wheels badge on the steering wheel.
In a statement, Hot Wheels senior vice president Chris Down said: "In the '90s, Hot Wheels and Camaro challenged vehicle design by elevating the speed, power and performance of both die-cast and pony cars alike." He added, "We’re thrilled that fans can now experience the essence of Hot Wheels in this special edition Camaro.”
