I love the car, Ive always preffered Firebird styling over Camaro styling, cept in 3rd gens thats my only exception, and this car is the dog's nuts man. If the Camaro looked wicked and evil, then this thing is the visual interpretation of the DMV line...or charlie Sheen's acting career...or something! My point, this thing is straight from hell LOL, its got T/A styling and all done up in black and red, its like its made for me...just not my wallet =/
And shouldnt you be promoting the movie FIRST instead of the car?? Im feeling some serious wanna-be Transformers vibes here

Oh yeah but here's the knight in shining armor. Almost 600hp on a supercharged LS3, now mind you thats not an LSA thats just a supercharged LS3, so imagine what GM might have in store for an LSA Z/28, we could have a 600 horse car out of the box ^_^

I dont understand all the hate here...
If the C7 Stingray Concept looks decent to you how can you say this thing looks rediculous? I love the out-going style of it, but me i dont like driving a plain old car that can get lost in the herd ya know? I thought that was one of the points of muscle cars...to stand out...

I am pretty sure that would cause some legal issues.
i agree bro! its still gunna be kinda collector cuz its only limited

This is for the Trans-am fans and collectors, no different than the Z-28 coming taking the front facia of the transformers car, Looks better than the 11 mustang gt-500

Well, you will not see another one in your town if you buy one...so exclusivity is nice. I don't mind it, just not as pure as the original.

I like it but not 60K like it. Looking at all the mods on the camaro GM sure did a good job making body parts replaceable. The camaro reminds me of legos you can rebuild it any number of ways.

I love it! I looks like a firebird, so i agree with you guys there. But one thing. IT ISN'T. It's the Firebreather. It most likely looks like the firebird because of the use for it and since firebird sounds close they probably figured why not try and make it resemble the original "fire"car. I don't see the need for so much hate. I mean idk if it's just the new people that hate it but I remember that when we first heard about this car in this forum everybody loved it...and it looked the same as it does now!

It's got a supercharger putting out 599 HP. You can read right?

Plus with the Z 28 on the verge of getting released, this is just poor timing on their part.

My change is going in my jar, and then to the bank for my down payment on a Z!
See a lot of people might not even be watching the news for the Z-28. They'll see this and go, "now that's an awesome Camaro"... without knowing and buy it up. It's the eye candy of it all and the availability now as opposed to potentially later.

Money money money. Offer it now and people might grab at the chance. They might not even know what the movie is about or even watch it, but they'll have a neat looking car that is limited (much like the Synergy crowd was).

Plus offer it now, sell most of them and if the movie bombs, they'll have made something out of the deal.

As you might guess from my screen name, I have a soft spot for certain old (very old) Firechickens.

There are one or two details on this one that I like, but for the most part it's the worst of the new Camaro mixed with the worst of the Burt Reynolds era disco Trans Ams. Not for me...

Sorry. I guess I am kind of a purist. Not impressed.
The Z28's and Firebirds just aren't Camaro's. The first few years is what put the Camaro on the map. The style was unique. The 2010 took the early years style, and gave a 21st century look. I think they nailed it. It is one of the best looking, unique Camaro's in its history. I have an LT1. If someone driving that offered an even trade, I would pass.

The 2010 Camaro is a better looking, no nonsense car, that you would never get sick of looking at, hands down.
