  1. Hurry up and release it already. I hate concept cars.
  2. This really looks great <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A>
  3. Noticed the "euro" rear?

    and damn it's ugly from the back...
  4. Wtf, from the back it is fully Namco, I love it
  5. And I know the Yurops like their amber lenses but those taillights look horrific with them. I hope they're all red when it comes out here.
  6. OMG it's the ZL-1!!!
  7. Spy Shots: Camaro SS finally gets busy on the 'Ring

    More spy shots from the Nurburgring today, this time of the Camaro SS prototype that was spotted arriving at the track yesterday. We already pointed out the bright red Brembo calipers on this Camaro, which suggest it's a high-performance SS version of the car, though that hasn't been confirmed. What is special about these photos is that they're the first time we've seen the Camaro really being driven hard on the track. Though we've seen plenty of Camaro spy shots in the past, most have been of the car caught in a parking lot, on a transport trailer or just meandering around town. Seeing the suspension under load is a thing of beauty that we've been waiting for, and KGP spy photogs tell us that it "looks impressive in action, and that its suspension looks well buttoned down on some of the 'Ring's challenging stretches." Hopefully they have their stop watches ready when Chevy engineers run the car hard for a full lap.

  13. I was just about to post that they are Australian number plates.

    Didnt Aych say something about GMH developing this car?
  14. yes. it was basically developed in australia.

    i thought they would use ap racing brakes, they seems to be the performance brake of choice for holden.
  15. Holden developed the platform. Obviously, seeing as its a slightly shortened VE Commodore platform.

    but from the platform up, I'm not sure who was in charge of that.

    Supposedly Chev was, but Holden seems to subliminally take ownership of it. What with the amount of testing they have done in Australia, the Camaro on Holdens website under 'concept cars', and I think Holden showed it at a recent motor show.
    And what this thread is about, despite being a LHD example, it still obviously came from Australia <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/disappointed.gif"></A>

    The vehicle will be made in Canada though.
  16. Yeah, I think Holden may be making a switch to Brembo

    The VE Coupe has Brembos too.
  17. Any video of this?

    Edit: I officially changed my mind, I like the Camaro more than the Challenger.
  20. +1

    LS7 Camaro would be incredible.
  21. It actually looks quite good for being a box.
  22. hot hot hot ... how am I not going to get one when it comes out...

  23. The Camaro body looks pretty cool... But I'm still not terribly impressed. It took the 05+ Mustangs awhile to grow on me too though. I was like the only person who wasn't whacking off over them when they first came out. I'm sure this will grow on me a lot too. Well, it'll either have to grow on me or I'll have to start lying about my opinion on it's looks since I'll be selling them. In any event it will clearly crush all the competition in terms of performance, which is what counts..
  24. LS9 FTW
  25. Seriously I think GM are the only one of the big three to get their retro muscle car bang on.

    It's such a good looking beast.
