NICE. All that can be said about that...I want some video though...Im wondering about a whine...

TheMadHatter99 04-08-2008 11:53 AM

Wow, really really like the low stance.

And, to get this out of the way:

Headlights are not production
Taillights won't be yellow in the US
Won't be two antennas on the roof

MattG 04-08-2008 11:53 AM

Nice!

Is it wrong if I like the amber tails? :P

in short... YES

Croathlete 04-08-2008 11:57 AM

Were they crawling down that track? If they were going at any decent speed, wouldn't we see some motion blur on the wheels?

Either way, looks good to me!!! We need some video!

it looks like a lower stance too, because it's got the bigger rims on it. those smaller rims left such a gap between them and the fender

Doug 97SS 04-08-2008 12:00 PM

I want pics of the Roll Cage thats in that car too! :D

neo2227 04-08-2008 12:01 PM

:w00t: Real nice. I see they have a roll cage in it. Also I notice that the right rear is looking like it's lifting off a bit. Hope there no wheel hopping going on there.:notheadlights: :blackvertshift: :rolling5thgen:

Not with a decent camera. They have cameras that don't get motion blur with bullets.

Wish they were production headlights... :drool:

This is great to see. Its nice to know that they are testing on the ring. A video would be nice. Perhaps tomorrow?

Anyways, this one is my favorite pre-pro so far.

Look at the last two pics and you will have your answer.

I wouldn't worry about the speed they were moving at. I took a look at the EXIF image data on yesterday's "Brembo" spyshots @ LLN and the photog was using a Canon EOS 1D Mark II digital SLR. That camera is capable of doing shots up to 1/8000 of second - essentially stopping the motion of nearly everything (airplane propellers, water drops, hummingbirds).

For all we know, they could have been doing 150mph! :D

Camaro_Corvette 04-08-2008 12:31 PM

Great pics, cant wait to see a vid

Design1stCode2nd 04-08-2008 12:31 PM

Looks damn nice!

BIGREDZ 04-08-2008 12:31 PM

Pics look great! Keep them coming! This is just making my week fly by!:chevy:

Off subject: Does anyone know if a Z/28 badge in in the trim levels or is it just the SS badge with different levels of equipment?:iono: I know there hasn't been an offical work yet but any educated speculation(sp?) would be great.

Thanks!

boxmonkeyracing 04-08-2008 12:41 PM

love it. hope I can still get one.

Mine too! :thumbsup: I can just hear the roar as it flys by........:drool: :drool: :drool: :drool:

Some of the pictures...it seems to me that one side of the car is MUCH higher off the ground that previous pics, and the other side seems like it is much lower. Mayve that's what you're seeing? :iono:

Educated Speculation says Z28 will be the limited numbers, GT500 killer. Search the forums here, you'll find A LOT about this. :thumbsup:

Design1stCode2nd 04-08-2008 12:48 PM

Looks like they are moving pretty quick. Lots of compression on the right side. Very visible in the 1st two shots.

GTAHVIT 04-08-2008 01:01 PM

There is no excuse for not having video. You mean to tell me you have time to take the photos but not a quick Vid... They must be afraid of some sort of action by GM if Videos got out....

GREAT shots! Love this car. I so can't wait! Definitely the best spy shots to date.:thumbsup:

mprhead5 04-08-2008 01:01 PM

nice to see it on the ring. looks like its all coming together. I guess thats why they put the upgraded brakes on it since stock units wouldn't be able to take the beating.

I do hope this car looks less like a brick then it dose in some of the pics. the lines are lovely but that damn beltline looks high despite the attempts to subdue it with the long fender flare line.

2010_5thgen 04-08-2008 01:04 PM

That thing looks so awesome. I'm definately getting the black now! Great pictures! So does any one know if the brakes are going to be part of a special handling package?
