In regard to the hood design and more specifically the openings, I was told at the last SEMA event by a chevrolet official, that the Jay Leno car had similar openings which helped with downforce on the front end. Perhaps just maybe, these openings have that similar function???

Could it be they had to raise them for the new cold air intake scoops just below them??????

What are the chances that is not really an LSA?

This is exactly what my inside friend described to be months back. If his HP figures are correct... look out GT500.

Looks like they are recording a bunch of various temps in the engine bay...wonder if they are worried about colling in the camaro engine compartment as opposed to the vette's. Or they just record a standard group of temp channels for all testing.

Not if they're trying to add brake cooling ducts.

Also the tires they're running around on appear to Pirelli R-comps.

Note the hood has hood pins too.

May be a hood option where as the existing hood would still come on the a 'base' Z?

I have been heir lurk around here for some time now, and if the Z is a drivers version of the SS with an LSA under the hood it has an honest chance to catch back up to it's less portly adversary pre Alpha Camaro.

I like where this is going. I just hope they make it so the hardcore want the Z's and the people who want the comfy, pretty darn well performing car stick to the SS. If that is case, the sky is the limit with the Z

I agree, but it's hard to tell because there is a BIG BLACK cover on both of them!

Thanks for the pics of the engine I realize they are still testing and I hope they take thier time to work out all the kinks.

I speculate that the different versions are testing different components.

I hope that it is a good cooling system (engine/brakes/etc.) for us deep south owners.

GM has to juggle with the Z though and that's one thing they are kind of in a pickle with.

They cannot make it outperform a Z06(which I don't think they will even come remotely close)

But it needs to be a legit player STOCK with the GT500(make it a drivers race pretty much) and make mincemeat of the 2011 GT.

They need to make it hardcore enough so the hardcore guys will go for it, and make it honestly better than a Corvette Coupe(at least in my opinion) but less than the Grand Sport.

There's a lot of marketing that has to go behind this because if they eff it up they will kill sales of another car.

you hit the nail on the head...

also pay attention to the hood "scoops" cause from what I see they look to be rear facing. More of a heat extractor hood than a hood scoop for fresh air..

Question

The Z28 has been hiding in plain sight for the longest time.
same shot same angle pretty much all the same cues are there...




now question is..are those 4 hood vents just to throw us off so we dont see the scoop? Maybe cut there so that it will still work since the cover might be directing airflow over the scoop and this is the best area to pick up air untill the black cover is taken off.

To me the Z28 and Bumblebee match up pretty well..with all things considered for movie vs. production car. Thay all match up.

It does look like they are reverse scoops but yo ucan see the front facing scoop also on the hood matches up with BB's hood very well.
