2010 Camaro SS version spy photo!! Spotted in AZ outside proving grounds.

Seen here is what is likely the Camaro SS!! It was spotted by one of our members with his cellphone in Mesa, AZ, outside the GM proving grounds. It is being tested concurrently with other similarly configured Camaros in the GM proving grounds. From what we can see, the car's distinguishing body work includes the black hood stripe and hockey stripes running down the sides of the car.

We've been told that it sounded like "a demon"! :evil: And had a whistling sound at idle ;)

UPDATED WITH THIS VIDEO! (from this thread:

The first photo is the original. The second has been magnified.

see i even had to spell it out... the beast is back

Wow. Very wow. With enough treatment they can even make white tolerable. Whistling? Is someone inferring forced induction on the only V8 option available at launch? I'd be pretty surprised....

Camaros have always had striping / decals available as far as I know. I hope they take their time and don't make them tremendously cheesy like some of the new MOPAR flat black / hugely orange peel textured Stang ones (how did they mess up stickers......). I like the placement so far at least. Woulda gone with red or hugger orange on the white car but we'll wait and see. Looks great. :thumbsup:

^Yeah, I don't know why GM would place stripes on a prepro mule (and suprisingly it's a single stripe on the cowl hood), but this is a shot NO ONE has seen before. And this goes w/out saying, but....being that it was taken from a cell phone, it's tough to get a really good, clear view of the rest of the Camaro.

I just pray that whistling sound really turns out to be what I pray it is!!!

They probably added the strips just to mess with us, I think GM is having fun teasing us.

djthecop 03-16-2008 04:46 AM

im definitely waiting on the SS after seeing this!!

JaysonAych 03-16-2008 05:22 AM

At the pace we're seeing spyshots, video, etc, we're probably only a few weeks away from the engineers just driving the prototypes up to our front doors and honking the horn. :D

Jules 03-16-2008 05:34 AM

Now just paint it candied burnt orange with silver ghost decals and I'm all on it!!!

Personally, the sticks look hideous. Everything else sounds amazing though, especially the whistling idea.

Mindz 03-16-2008 05:53 AM

:drool: I agree, the stripes don't look great. but there is a glare. But the whistling and stripes make for a lot more speculation on SS version and/or S/C version or both. The boards are going to get hotter tomorrow.

Not getting that excited about the stripes they're not my taste, but I'm very intrested in this whistling sound they're mentioning...

not really big on stripes on a car, but I do like the center stripe on this one... for it to be a test mule with a set of stripes, I'm guessing that some of the engineers were just having some fun with a pre-pro car... but the whistling sound makes for some interesting conversation.

This car is probably going to be directly aimed at the Mustang GT500.

I am wondering about the whistling sound. It would lead me to think that it is supercharged as well except for one thing......the hood vent is not open. It would stand to reason the the General would open the vent on an S/C car. I'm thinking the whistiling noise might just be the pulleys on a high compression engine. It is getting really exciting on the boards now all these finds are great!

stevenm357 03-16-2008 08:48 AM

Awestome, Thanks for the photos!!!

asrapid 03-16-2008 08:50 AM

whistling sound..maybe it is flux capacitor:D :D ..was it going close to 88 mph and then just vanish?:D :)

KevinK 03-16-2008 08:55 AM

Very cool :) ,'s great to see they are (and I'm sure having a lot of fun with it) testing stipes as well ;)

wildpaws 03-16-2008 09:01 AM

Those stripes do nothing for me, if that's all that is offered I'd have to go stripe delete, no big deal.
