2010 Baldwin Motion Phase III Camaro details

As featured on homepage.

Hey folks!

I just wanted to post up some news coming from the folks at Baldwin Motion. I've been working with them on a design for a Phase III 2010 Camaro and they've just unveiled it on their website, www.officialbaldwinmotion.com.

Some of the finer details are still being ironed out right now, but here is the story thus far:

There will be 25 built-to-order Phase III Camaros with power output starting at 570hp. The cars will feature a custom front grille, heat extractor hood, and a deck lid with an integrated spoiler and 3rd brake light. There will be several wheel and tire choices including an option for custom painted wheel centers and redline tires.

For more information on the Phase III program including pricing, color options, and availability, feel free to call Larry Jaworske at 941.713.8443.


I hope you all enjoy the renderings and everyone's input is much appreciated!

Very nice! I like the flares... The hood louvers look good also.

Where did you hide the back-up lights?

The white one is sick. Are your body parts going to be available or do you have to get a whole package?

Much respect for baldwin motion name and legacy, but even though the white on red looks sick not loving the mustangesk look of striping.

Haha good eye indeed. I personally never liked the OEM back-up lights. I'm planning on having them hidden between the bottom of the rear fascia and the top of the diffuser. The rectangular lights on the stock Camaro seem like such an afterthought.

As of right now, the parts will only be included in the complete package, though there is potential expansion into selling individual pieces later down the line.

There was some back and forth on how to do the striping and we thought this looked pretty cool. Striping is definitely subject to change though and everyone's feedback will be taken into consideration. While we can't always please everyone, we do value the opinions of the real Camaro enthusiasts out there!

I too have thought this and questioned it. The answer I have always gotten is that they are there for federal mandated safety reasons.

Skunk stripe has never been exclusive to rustang, they just over-do it. I like it. Have you tried variations of some of the old Baldwin Motion stripes?

Yeah, they're definitely required, but I wonder sometimes if they finished the car, looked at it, and said "crap...i knew we forgot something...just put em...THERE."

Yeah, I agree. Mustangs have really kind of claimed the look. Though I think he might mean that we shouldn't have run it down the front fascia and ended it at the hood.

We've toyed with the idea of doing the old-school spear down the side, but don't really feel that the car's lines lend themselves to that style of graphic. I won't say rule it out though...you never know!

As a future Camaro owner that would most likely keep the car entirely stock I'd have to say that if you offered that hood and that deck lid/spoiler separately I would have to jump all over it, especially the deck lid. My current car has a third brake light buried in the spoiler and I absolutely love the look, I wish GM had included it in their spoiler.

I must say that this is the first time I've seen one of these modded Camaros and actually liked the changes enough to want to copy it. Excellent work.

I love it and i like the stripes ending all way down the front fascia =) Maybe dual stripes instead though if people really think it looks to mustang-esque?

Wonderful job either way, so far my favorite aftermarket look i think...

white and red looks great too!

Haha thanks, though the Phase III's will most likely not have altered wheel flares. I think they're amplified a bit by the lighting in the rendering.

As with the 1969 models that Motion has recently built, there is a high liklihood of there being a "SuperCoupe" version of this car offered in the future which will be almost a completely different car in terms of custom sheet metal.

I'm actually really liking the single stripe... especially over the roof like that. Also, the more sculpted rear bumper/facia is quite nice (total agreement on the afterthought back up lights). Oh, and thanks for someone FINALLY putting proper exhaust tips on this thing. Why did GM put sweet exhaust tips on both concepts and then shaft us by putting boring ones on the actual car? And don't even get me started on the ground effects kit and the weird retangular-ish ports with round pipes inside showing through. Keep up the good work guys.

I love it! The stripe going all the way down the front and on the roof look GREAT! When the stripes just end it looks unfinished. I think the stripe on the back should continue down to the rear diffuser panel. And the ones saying that the stripes are to "mustang-esq" need to get over it. When it looks good, it looks good. And ford is obviously doin something right and we know it isnt in the "go fast" department. LOL

IROC-Z hood louvers and spoiler 3rd brake light are back! The spoiler looks higher than the tiny stock one, I wonder if there are any plans to make a longer, full length and higher stock-style spoiler.

I'm glad everyone seems to like the car so far! This is just the beginning folks. We all know the aftermarket will be huge for these cars and we (Motion and Cars by Kris) plan to play a large role in it.

A big thank you to the admin here for putting these renderings and an announcement on the homepage. This site and its membership is truly a driving force behind the new Camaro and all those who have a stake in it.

Keep the feedback coming!

These look amazing, great job so far! Only thing that seems kind of weird to me is the striping, IMO if they run all the way down the front, they should also run all the way down the back. Just my 2 cents though :p.
