I'd buy one, remove the 'LS7' badging, and have myself a bada@@ little "sleeper".
I guess the reason it is the most popular goes to show what this forum wants the most is power and classic looks over anything else. This LS7 concept is like the Z06 to the ZR1 is for corvette enthusiasts. However in this case the cost of buying an LS7 and getting it installed in a Camaro SS comes out cheaper than going out and buying a Z06 and it looks better because the design is fresh.

Are there anymore pictures of the cloth interior?? This is what I ordered so I definately would like to see some clean shots of a production cloth interior.

That was just slutty, you even got a couple extra useless posts out of it...So How many jiffy's does it take for the LS7 Camaro to do 0-60?

Would a 572 be a drop in replacement for the LS3 mated with the 6spd manual?

I believe that they're selling the LS9 as a crate engine too.....since you can't get either from the factory in the damn thing, you might as well just order the LS9. After all, 505 hp is good, 638+ is better!!!

Hey now.....let's not go overboard. The Z06 is pure sex on wheels, even after being on the street for 3 years. I love the Camaro, but IMHO there's no way on earth it would win a beauty contest against the Z06. I actually think that the current Z06 may be the best looking of all of the production Corvettes in the last 30 years....and that includes the ZR1.

As someone that tried pre-ordering the LS7.... They told me no its not an option right now.

I have plans on calling them back and probably end up just ordering it and having them do the work. Hopefully I'll be able to roll it into the financing.

Anyone? Bueller...

Did anyone get a good look at the wheels/tires? Even if it was just tire size??

I'd love to put some wider rims/tires on mine. Nothing crazy, just about like this concept...

Droooooooooooollllllling........

This is what I wanted to do to my '99 camaro but since I'm going to end up getting a new Camaro anyway I might as well wait to put the LS7 in the new one instead. ...........can't wait....

so if the they end up with an LS7 on the build sheet as a dealer-installed option, i guess that extra LS3 can replace the 4.3 in my truck
