Thumbs up New photos: Camaro Z28 Testing Against GT500

As reported on CAMARO5 HOMEPAGE.

Here are the newest photos of the Camaro Z28 test mule being tested and directly evaluated against a Mustang GT500. Not only is this a GT500, but it's a 2011 GT500 with Performance Pack! That means it weighs 3750 with 550hp.

GM is making no secret of the benchmark they are attempting to clear -- the 2010 Ford Mustang GT500. This should help put to rest some doubts as to whether this test mule is indeed the range topping Camaro Z28 mode
l expected to be GM's answer to the Mustang GT500.

This latest sighting come on the heels of last week's spotting of the Camaro Z28 test mule:

the thing I dont understand is why all the badges are covered up? can someone explain that to me?

what I'm most curious about now is what the actual Z/28 badges will look like...I hope they go for something retro.

gonna call the dealership soon and see if they can give me any info, at least put my name on a list to get contacted when this becomes official

Dealerships don't have any information on the Z28 yet. It's all just rumors and speculation for now. The most info is what you are seeing posted on Camaro5.com

Sure looks to me like it says Supercharged on the fender emblem

That side badge is too big to say CAMARO...looks like it says SUPERCHARGED?

Nice to see more and more pics of the Z/28...I do hope the pricing is good when all said and done though...I do worry about that.

Nobody knows for sure what the car is gonna look like. As fars as the badges getting covered up, this is nothing new. They are not ready to release final details. There are still changes that are gonna be made. If they show you now, it may not be what you see when it is released.

SCHWING!!!

LOL - it looks like the driver's getting on it in that second pic'. Great shot of the front brakes and side of the facia. I'm still worried about the Goodyears, though :( I'd have liked to have seen some PS2s :( Oh well, if they're good enough for Corvette, it's not THAT big a deal

That Cobra's right where it belongs, LOL.
