General Motors is unveiling its new Camaro convertible at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Production begins in January with the first cars for sale in February.

“The launch of the new convertible opens Camaro design and performance to a new set of potential customers,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing, in a statement. “The 21st century revival of Camaro is tremendously popular, so it’s a natural to now expand and elevate the product range in new directions.”

The automaker says the convertible will be offered in similar model configurations as the Camaro coupe. The standard model will have a 312-horsepower direct injection V-6 engine with a fuel mileage of 29 miles per gallon on the highway. The SS model will feature the 6.2L V-8 engine producing 426 horsepower.

A six-speed manual transmission will be standard, with an optional six-speed automatic.

The Camaro convertible is priced starting from $30,000.
