Exclamation 2011/2012 Camaro Z28 LSA Engine and Hood Design Revealed!

As reported on Homepage.

We bring you visual proof of the Camaro Z28 prototype testing with the supercharged LSA motor (same as that used in the CTS-V). Even if one thinks it's suspicious that a test prototype's engine would have any sort of engine cover bearing the name of the engine, the motor underneath does appear to be that LSA upon visual inspection.

For those not familiar with the LSA engine, it's a 6.2L supercharged engine SAE certified at 556hp @ 6100rpm and 551 lb-ft torque @ 3800rpm That does not mean that the Camaro will come with the same power though. We could possibly see less or even MORE power.

Also seen clearly for the first time is the design of the Camaro Z28 prototype hood. There looks to be a two-row heat extractor vents design (we've reposted an older photo from the top-down angle for an additional view). Keep in mind however, there's no guarantees that this is the final hood design of the Camaro Z28.

And finally, a Z28 prototype has been spotted in what appears to be aqua blue metallic (or a similar blue color). Previous prototypes have all been red.

The wheels are 20" SP550 anodized black - 20x10 front and 20x11 rears. Wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2 tires.
