  • Racing driver turns delivery driver for one special car
  • Some people are lucky, but every Camaro owner is fortunate
  • It's all part of Chevrolet's Find New Roads advertising campaign

When buying a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro and taking delivery, you might reasonably expect that nice man from the dealership to turn up at the house and finalize the details. But Alican Boyacioglu, known as "Turk" by his friends (and, now, by the wider world), had a whole different experience. His car was delivered by Danica Patrick, famous and successful female race-car driver and probably far easier on the eyes than that nice man from the dealership.

It happened at the Texas Motor Speedway. Up to that point, Boyacioglu had been following his Camaro SS Coupe -- the very first off the assembly line of the new, sixth generation -- during its build process. He was invited to the track by Huffines Chevrolet Lewisville dealership and approached his new ride. But his excitement turned to incredulity when Patrick stepped out and handed him the keys.

"Congratulations, it's a beautiful car," said Patrick, who then took Boyacioglu for a spin to exercise the 455-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 that all SS models are equipped with -- making it the most powerful production Camaro SS to date, by the way. And she even autographed the inside of the glove box.

"This whole experience was surreal," said Boyacioglu, who comes from Wichita, Kansas. "Coming to the race and getting the VIP treatment was amazing, and I still can't believe I get to drive the first 2016 Camaro away."

Other buyers of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro should be receiving their cars from mid-November onward. They're all coupes at the moment, with choices of turbo four, V6 or V8 engines and either a 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed automatic. Prices start at $27,990 (including a $995 destination charge). Convertibles are available from early next year.

What it means to you: It just goes to show that you never know what adventures might happen when you buy a car.
