Exclamation Camaro Coupe Spotted as Official 2011 Daytona 500 Pace Car!

Reported on HOMEPAGE.

It appears that the 2011 Camaro will serve as the pace car for the 2011 Daytona 500 race, wrestling back the spot from the Mustang, which was last year's Daytona 500 pace car. GM engineers were recently putting the 2011 Camaro Daytona 500 Pace Car through some shakedown tests at GM's proving grounds in Michigan, no doubt to work out any potential kinks prior to its debut on February 20, 2011 at the Daytona 500.

This Camaro pace car showcases the 2011 Camaro Synergy Series special edition Camaro which will be available this year [More Info HERE]. The 2011 Camaro Synergy Series features:
  • Chevrolet Accessory Heritage Grille, ground effects package, and dovetail spoiler (production)
  • 21-inch painted wheel (silver finish, optional for production)
  • Special stripes
  • Body-color antenna
  • Gray interior with red stitching on the seat, steering wheel, door panels, console lid, shifter boot, shift knob and headrest (production)
  • Red instrument cluster and accent lighting
  • Chevrolet Accessory interior trim kit in Silver Ice
  • Chevrolet Accessory floor mats with red border and silver Camaro lettering
  • Footwell and cupholder lighting
  • LS3 6.2L engine and six-speed manual transmission (with 2SS only)
  • Chevrolet Accessory Hurst shifter with red stitching
  • Chevrolet Accessory engine cover in red
  • Brembo brake calipers in red (with 2SS only)
  • Pedders lowering kit (licensed Camaro accessory, not included in production package)

The Camaro coupe last served as the Dayton 500 pace car in 2009.

Beyond the Daytona 500, it was also recently announced that the 2011 Camaro SS convertible will pace this year's Indy 500 race. The pace car was just revealed at the Barrett Jackson auctions.

HATE the rear spoiler.

Makes the back of the car look terrible.

Not a fan of the dovetail. It looks slapped on and doesn't integrate well (also don't like that it's broken up into three pieces). The Leno dovetail is a much better design IMO.

I like it. Including the rear spoiler. The original stock spoiler was lame IMHO.

dovetail spoiler= a bit too much

Leno spoiler= just right

those bright squarish exhaust bezels have overdone their welcome, the only downside to the GFX package.

Why is Ford missing out on all these pace car opportunities? Or does GM have some special deal with NASCAR or Sprint?
