Looks like GM is using the philosophy of form following function, which is understandable. However, to me, that hood looks like someone designed a car and then had to find a solution after the design was done to disapate heat. I just don't think that the design flows with that hood. Maybe it will look better in person? I don't know though. I like the look of the SS hood infinitely better.
In any case, if you are sitting behind the wheel of a 556+ HP Camaro, the view is going to be pretty cool!
