Hadn't seen that, I'll look for it. I love the V8 Australian races, that's closer to production cars.

I'll sign a waiver and do it! "Safe" is a relative term anyways.

Oh my god - is that photoshopped or real?


Edit - damn the site that it's originally posted on says it's an artist's rendition.

That's fairly old, that style splitter and rear wing have been gone for years. As has the Nextel sponsorship which is on the side of that car.

If it looks like a Camaro then I like it

If it looks like all the other cars but with Camaro stickers they should have just stayed with the car they have

At least in the CTS they pretty much are. The Rolex cars including the Camaros are tube chassis with carbon fiber bodies.

In 2010, NASCAR introduced a new car for their minor league Nationwide Series and encouraged the manufacturers to use muscle car bodies.

And the automakers kind of listened. Ford brought a Mustang and Dodge brought a Challenger. But Chevy and Toyota decided their "muscle cars" were the Impala and the Camry. Thankfully, that will change for 2013.

Chevy just showed off the brand new Camaro body they'll be using in Nationwide competition for 2013 this morning.
Does it have any relationship to the Camaro you can by for the street? None whatsoever.

Does it look more badass than an Impala or a Camry? Damn right it does. This is the first NASCAR racer that's made us drop our jaw in a while.

Hideous looking. Looks like a mockup for the forthcoming cars 3. I'm sure my daughters will love it.
