2014 Camaro Powered by LS7 Spotted?!
 
9 Attachment(s)


Is this our first look at the LS7 powered Camaro test prototype?!

In case you missed it, the 2014 Camaro was recently discovered with an LS7 engine option [full details].

This is the first Camaro prototype that we have seen GM testing in a long time (since the ZL1). And although the visuals are not very telling (save for the quad exhausts), that GM is even performance testing a prototype may be a sign that we may be seeing a new Camaro model with a new powertrain soon. Furthermore, the car was said to sound like a V8, ruling out the possibility of some V6 based model.

The grille that the prototype wears is the same as those used on old Camaro prototypes, so don't expect that this is necessarily a sign of a new grille design or facelift.

FYI, the 7.0-liter LS7 V8 motor is currently used in the Corvette Z06 (505hp @ 6300rpm / 470 lb-ft @ 4800rpm).

Intriguing: V6 fascia, V8 brakes, NPP system... VERY intriguing but it could be anything really

i do have to say that the v8 mail slot mixed with v6 front end looks terrible!

Not enough in the pics to speculate.

It has the mail slot but the rest of the fascia appears to be from a V6.

I agree the lower lip looks like a V6. Maybe it is just a mule for the Gen6 Powertrain?

This story should be on the front page of the National Enquirer :)

Right next to the article saying that fbodfather was abducted by aliens.

DuskSS 01-31-2013 10:55 AM

sigh if a Z/28 with an LS-7 comes out I'm gonna be upset :(
Hmm wonder how my lease works on that.

The Stig 01-31-2013 10:55 AM

Also just realized that it has the old style 20" wheels as well as the Brembo roller-skates

Just because someone catches a photo of a test car, how the heck can you tell what's under the hood that would lead you to speculate it might be a LS7.

Just the vin card that someone posted a while back? I believe they finally came out and said that that vin chart was not complete nor neccessarily accurate and should not have been leaked.

For all we know there could be most anything under that hood from a LS7, a new LT Vett DI engine, a TT V6, or just a bunch of hampsters.

the mail slot is obviously from the v8, but that is indeed a v6 fascia:thumbsup:. just look at the bottom of it

I like the grille. So much cleaner looking than what we got on the 2010's.

Sure it is. Especially if you already know that that is exactly what we are looking at.
