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!

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

radz28 01-12-2011 04:23 PM

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

GOOD CATCH!

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???

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 06:39 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 07:56 PM

so could it be also?

Mr. Wyndham 01-12-2011 08:19 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.
