"DETROIT — From the department of WTF comes the release of the first official image of the 2010 Camaro SS. The reveal, such as it is, comes in an advertising photo spread Chevy has produced with New York magazine publishing giant, Conde Nast.
The advertisement is part of Conde Nast's free supplement Fashion Rocks — which we suppose explains why singer Fergie is photographed beside the car.
In Chevy-speak, the SS means a Camaro powered by the (estimated) 422 horsepower 6.2-liter V8. And, while it doesn't look much different than the V6 RS models that the company has released photos of, there are some telltale differences. The mail-slot air intake on the top of the deeper front fascia is a full production piece. This is to say nothing of the "SS" badge in the grille. Also, the big front brake rotors are the 14-inchers carrying big Brembo calipers. There's not enough detail in the photograph to tell, but the calipers will carry both the Brembo and Chevrolet names.
The Camaro SS will go on sale in mid-March 2009 — the same time as the V6 models. The V6 cars will start in the low $20Ks and the SS will sneak in under the $30,000 mark.
