You Can Buy a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro Golf Cart

General Motors has gone to great lengths to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Chevrolet Camaro and the newest collectable to be licensed by the automaker is a golf cart featuring the distinct design cues of the 6th generation Camaro and the 50th Anniversary Edition package.

If you have been looking for a proper vehicle to get around the track between runs in your Chevrolet Camaro, you are in luck – as Caddyshack Gold Carts of Palm Desert, California has just introduced a new golf cart based on the 2017 Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition. As the image above shows, this golf cart is the spittin’ image of the special edition Camaro, just in smaller form, so any diehard Chevrolet fan who is looking for a golf cart will surely want to check this out.

The Caddyshack Camaro Fifty Cart
This officially licensed Chevrolet Camaro golf cart has a front end that perfectly matches the full sized car, complete with working headlights, a hood that opens to reveal a storage compartment, working taillights, Chevrolet branded aluminum wheels and a unique leather interior with bucket seats. The Caddyshack Camaro doesn’t have doors, but from the side, this golf cart has the same curvy lines as the full sized muscle car.

Finally, since this golf cart is technically based on the Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition, the hood has the unique stripes around the SS-style hood vents. There is nothing under the hood, but under the seats is a large battery compartment which feeds the 48V drive unit. Caddyshack states that this Camaro will go up to 19.5 miles per hour on flat ground.

Really, as golf carts go, this model from Caddyshack couldn’t look any more like the 2017 Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition without adding a low-slung roof and doors. It really is a wicked cool cart, but there is one downside – the price.

As is the case with most custom golf carts, the Camaro Fifty cart has a higher price than your average 48V electric golf cart. I have purchased a few carts with a similar drivetrain to this miniature Camaro and a 5 year old “refurbished” cart with a normal body and interior can be purchased for around $5,000. The Camaro cart costs $15,995, but the only components shared with a normal production cart are the chassis and drivetrain – everything else is unique and everything is beautifully detailed.

Caddyshack has a ton of pictures on their website of the Camaro Fifty cart from every angle, as well as images of the first Camaro cart during production. You can check them out by clicking here.

So, if you have the need for a golf cart, you love the Chevrolet Camaro and you are looking to spend big money to have the nicest golf cart around – Caddyshack has you covered. I have used a 48V golf cart around our horse stable and they work every bit as hard as pricier ATVs. We use them year-round and with mud tires, they will dig through foot-deep snow with 600lbs of hay on the back. During the summer, we pull a variety of small trailers around the grounds and other than battery replacements every couple of years – they are more reliable than our older gas-powered vehicles.

These electric golf carts are great for cruising around the golf course or the race track grounds, but they can also serve as great utility vehicles around the house, so if you need to talk your wife into letting you buy a $16k Camaro golf cart – tell her that you can use it for all sorts of projects around the house.
