Hmmm....370 lb-ft of torque. I wonder if that's leaving any room for modification. I wouldn't think that the torque gauge would max out at what the actual stock engine torque does...but who knows . It would be kind of annoying to slap say some LT Pace Setters in there and have the torque gauge in the red more than half the time you're driving the car.:(

Perhaps this is an entry level V8 with...hmm..maybe 330-350 lb-ft of torque.

You have to hover the pointer right in the center of the picture...Jalopnik
I learned that the hard way during the first interior shots.

Anyways.....AHHH!!!! I'm absolutely LOVING the way the interior is coming along.

Things Dragoneye notices:
CUP-HOLDERS
Radio is coming along..Like screen-plastic (very nice.)
REALLY lovin' the center console. looks like a flip-open storage.
Gauges (all of them) = real cool.
Parking brake...meh, not bad - but I can certainly live with it.

Thanks for posting these up!

EDIT...maybe it's a V6??? And the gauge doesn't end on a peak number? Or perhaps it's not flywheel torque, but rear wheel torque??? That would definitely be in the realm of the L76.

Is it possible that it will have the same engine as the Pontiac G8 GT?

I don't think thats wheel torque, because people will complain that their car isn't making the torque that its supposed to. Stupid yes but . . . we are talking about average consumers. But we have no idea about what those numbers actually mean because I don't know of any cars that have that a torque gauge.

It's too bad they're not using the red,white, and blue Camaro Logo anywhere. I think it would look great on the steering wheel. The Camaro typeface looks a little small.

Yeah its too bad they're not using that logo anymore.

As for nav, I assume we're going to be offered Onstar's turn by turn navigation. I'll just get my self a Garmin Nuvi.

Well I hope they rethink that, I'm sure the re-vamped Mustang will have a Nav system available.

Here's what I see;

If you look at the close up shots of the tach, it seems to redline at 6000 rpm. The LS3 makes peak power at 6k rpm, so if this is the V8 it's not an LS3. The L76 makes peak power at 5600 rpm, so that's within the tach but awfully close to the top. The V6 makes peak power at even higher rpm, 6300.

So, this is probably a V8. It's probably not an LS3. That leaves the L76 and Gen V for options. There's not enough info about the Gen V to guess any further. So I'm thinking the V8 choices are down to 2.

Edit: Just checked the DI 3.6 and it peaks at 5200, so add 1 more possibility.

I think this is the V6 interior and gauges.

but I also think that the Camaro will be the first wide production availability of the Gen V V8 engines

I'm surprised it hasn't been commented on yet, but looks like a short throw shifter...think it will stay that way?

With the lighted gauges (showing), it looks better than I thought, I like the steering wheel too, it's coming along.

Yeah it doesn't look like it's going to have a Nav screen, can Onstar find me the closest ATM or place to eat? Eh, guess I'll go read more on Onstar.

I'm wondering if we are looking at the V6.. hmm.
I missed the cup holders.

Well it was a total shock to catch these new photos but man am I happy I logged on!

Totally no problem with the ignition in the steering column, reminds me of my childhood sitting in my uncle's muscle car and pretending I was driving. It brings back the retro memories.

After getting over my tach obsession, I looked at the exterior shots and I have to agree with you. The wheel/tire combo does not look low profile enough to be in line with V8 performance.

Yeah the ignition location is totally personal taste, and its not a big deal. To me in-dash or push button just seems to indicate a more special kind of car, but that's not concrete at all.

Yeah I don't think onstar does POI functions, making a portable nav unit more handy. I hope it has XM radio built in then so I don't have to have two display screens tacked on to the dash.

I think this may very well be the DI 3.6. That would line up perfectly with the tach and torque gauges. Interesting stuff....

And yes, that shifter looks pretty short throw to me. Yay.

I wonder if the aftermarket will offer some badges like the old Camaro emblem. I'd get some of those.

I like the progress. The A/C controls are a little big but it looks good. This is probably the base model trim. It should just get better.

Not sure I like the flatness of the overall shape of the dash and I definitely don't like the shifter. I'd fallen in love with the concept's shifter, but I guess I can always buy it aftermarket (assuming its offered).

The size of the steering wheel does seem more in proportion now and I really like having all the extra gauges (ie torque etc).

All in all I'll reserve judgment until I see the final product, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to resort to aftermarket parts to get what I really want.

Found some spy pics!

Check this link out! It has some spy pics that I haven't seen yet. And as far as I know, nobody has posted them here yet. They were taken when they still had the camo on them prototypes, but the majority are interior pics anyways.
Here's something interesting though....
In the pic showing the quad gauge cluster on the center console there is a torque gauge... and it maxes out at 370 ft/lbs. I'm curious if this is really going to be on the production models. And if it is, wouldn't this be a clue as to what kind of HP numbers we might expect from a V8 version? Usually GM's HP and torque numbers don't differ by much. What do you guys think?
