You're mistaken. That's the SS front end, the bottom lip is a dead giveaway. And there's really no clear shot of the brakes to assess them being Brembo or not.

The best, easiest, and most efficient way to tell the V8's from the V6's...

the mail slot on the hood. stands out on any car that has it.

I say they are Brembo brakes. The ones on the white car fill that 20" wheel a lot more than the ones on the Yellow car from the reveal.

LT/RS from the reveal:




White SS with Brembo brakes:




Plus, look at the caliper design.

'Ring car with Brembo brakes:




Close up of white SS with Brembo brakes:

And here is a shot of the brakes on the Red LT/RS revealed in July. The white SS is definitely wearing Brembos.

mmmmm The smell of fresh pics! I like it!

I cant wait til they are being shipped to our local dealerships, and we see tons of them! I think we should still be in the obsessive about pics state and continue to follow them around like crazy people and take pics!! Who's with me?

I think its a V8. I agree with the speculation of those beeing the Bembro brakes. looks like a production SS bumper. True Dual exhaust (unlikely in the v6 - but if V6 does get true duals then yehaw) One think I wonder about the tires. If wonder if all the Camaro's that get the pirelli tires ( 19" and 20" )get the P-zero runflats or just the 20's on the SS?

runflats? I thought we were just getting standard tires with an inflation kit...

That is correct, as far as we know. But think about it...GM doesn't want a pre-production model sitting on the side of the road with a flat tire. Run-flats solve that problem. Can you imagine the heyday the press/blogs/mustang forums would have with shots of a Camaro broken down on the side of the road with a flat tire?

damn man!! you just made my day! best pics I've seen on the net of the SS anywhere! looks like Pirelli P-Zeros and true duals possibly--sweet!
And am I seeing things or do the taillights look similar to afterburners with the red glow along the top of each one?


I sure wish the door handles were body color though. and hmmm.. no chevy bowtie or ss/rs emblems


good find

hahaha... but man, they're pretty expensive... maybe there will be an option and hopefully they will have a good bargain for them.... otherwise, it'll be the cheap (but not really) rubber, with a cheap inflatation kit for me...

thats because the brakes are bigger on the ss. they are only 2 piston on the v6.



so on the ss models are the mirrors all in black??
