Camaro Z28 hood will resemble CTS-V race car's? (PICS)
 
Hi long time Camaro admirer and lurker here. Finally had something good to post about so I signed up to post.

macalot posted this idea up in another thread - he brought up idea that the Camaro z28 hood could potentially resemble (not exactly but similar design as) the hood from the CTS-V scca race car, but maybe with less slats.

I was at the detroit show and took some pix of the cts-v, what you guys think?

Definitely looks like that's the direction they're taking it. Good call!

Bruce@MarylandSpeed 01-12-2011 11:05 AM

Great pics. Looks to be a match.

jcamere94z28 01-12-2011 02:27 PM

i see a z28 hood making it to my SS... :) looks like it is going to look super sweet!

radz28 01-12-2011 03:23 PM

I think that may be a little exaggerated, but hope it's at least somewhat close.

GOOD CATCH!

OldJedi 01-12-2011 03:56 PM

Great spot !! It definitely looks like the direction that GM is going to go with the supercharged engine, using the heat extractor hood. The Z28 will likely be a variant on the Caddy Race Car Hood.

Can you tell what size tires the race car is running???

lil_red_v6 01-12-2011 04:46 PM

looks like it, also on a side note could the wheels on the cts-v scca car be the wheels that were on the ss-x and might be the wheels that are going to be on the z28?

BoostedX2 01-12-2011 05:39 PM

I hope the hood pins make the cut--that would be awesome!!

They look a lot more like the wheels from the Z/28 clay model from a while back then the SSX wheels. Take a look:

lil_red_v6 01-12-2011 06:56 PM

so could it be also?

Mr. Wyndham 01-12-2011 07:19 PM

Those wheels look very much like a BBS design, if I'm looking correctly...

Good catch on the hood!! It could be the same concept being applied! :thumbsup:
I think it's a much more refined and functional design than the big bumblebee hood scoop.

lil_red_v6 01-13-2011 01:22 PM

or looks like the wheels of the firebreather

Good find either way that CTS-V is sexy & the Z28 will be a beast

fresh88 01-20-2011 04:17 PM

They look much like the Shelby SuperSnake Alcoa wheels.

I have a feeling these are 'OEM' wheels, but these were the BBS wheels I mentioned I thought they looked like earlier.

Thanks, Nice profile shot of the Race Caddy Hood. The wheels are beautiful but look very expensive.
