I like it... It's going to be interesting to see how close this rendering is to the real thing...

I just realized this hood, if the rendering is accurate, totally screws us guys who want to do a custom Bumblebee stripe kit in the TF1 style. I'm skipping making my 'bee look like TF2 or TF3, cause honestly, TF2 was a disaster and I have little hope that TF3 will be any better, and I'd rather my bee look like a good movie than a bad one

But the TF3 leaked pics have bee's stripes running down the sides of the hood, not near the center, which would be supported by a Z hood rendering such as this.

Damnit, GM, why do you make things difficult...

Thats so sweet. I grew up with Z/28's and really excited to have one again. Especially one that is a true sports car (I had '80, '84). I planned on keeping my SS but dont think I will. I will be taking some mods off and sell/trade it.

I do plan on getting CGM again but with no stripes. May have them painted on later. And this time I am putting a clear bra on before I go anywhere!

The hood/car model that is being used in the TF3 bumblebee is the Jay Leno concept car from SEMA 2009. The reason the stripes are running down the sides of the car like that is because they're following the position of the vents from the hood.

In my opinion I don't really believe that the hood in the rendering will he the final production design. I still believe that they're going to use the hood design from Jay Leno concept/TF3. Not that it really matters to me cause I love my SS and will probably wait till a 50th anniversary Camaro is release til contemplating on buying another car... that or a V8 manual Chevy SSR, now thats a headturner!

one thing I really hope is that they put the bigger Z28 emblem where the center bowtie is and Z28 emblems on the sides to replace the Camaro emblems and the rear bowtie replaced with the Z28 emblem.

I'm guessing they'll have a more traditional painted wheel standard to appeal to the most people possible. Although those wishing for factory chrome wheels on the Z/28 are sure to be disappointed as that boat has sailed a while ago.
Much to the contrary, powder coated midnight black wheels which I refered to if you read the post properly look almost identical to the black chrome finish, and they will hold up to all weather. Bright chrome is not the way to go, powder coated midnight chrome with a machined lip is awesome IMHO. There are companies now doing that for the stock 5 spokes on 2010's and they look awesome. Tom Oates chevy in PA had midnight chrome wheels offered for many of his specialty "factory" modified Camaro's.

[QUOTE=Shurenuff;2676511].
I'm no engineer, but does it even make sense for it to have both heat extractor vents and a large intake scoop? It seems like the air would just rush in and quickly exit via the extractor vents. What would this accomplish?
[/QUOTE
If a "large intake scoop" were to expedite this process you would probably see it if in fact this vent work is needed at all. The hood looks mean and nasty, and is something quite unique, although not suitable to everyones taste as you have previously mentioned. It's a shame GM is not going to engineer a functional fresh air duct/scoop for the supercharger. A cool, dense charge of air brings much to the horsepower table. Does anyone have any real info on how much engine heat, or engine compartment temperature rise the SC causes, if any? Does it really need an air exchanger vent in the hood?

My guess is that hood is functional. Why else would GM go to the trouble to make it like that?

Cool air goes in at the back of the hood at the cowl. Flows forward across the warm engine then escapes via the extractors.

I have a feeling this rendering is VERY close to the actual Z28. Looks good overall IMO.

Love the wheels, not sold on the hood vents. I'd rather have seen a functional hood scoop or an engine window.

And I know there probably wasn't much of a choice, but the fog lights make that space in the bumper look odd. Half of it has a fog light, and the other half is empty.

I don't care for this very much. I don't like the hood at all and the wheels are nothing that I would ever want. I plan on buying a Z but will have to see what it looks like for real. Maybe this will grow on me... It just looks like it is marketed to a much younger driver than me.

NICE! I love the front Fascia, if I put that on my car with a heritage grille and NO Z/28 badgeing would I be considered a poser?
