After seeing this, I don't know if I can get a V6. I need this car.

I like the yellow breaks, but they don't appear to say Brembo like they did at the track.

The rims look like 20s. They look far better than the previous wheels in my opinion. That gunmetal color is beautiful.

The headlights are gorgeous. GM did an exemplary job. The grill is equally phenomenal.

The mirror is as we've seen it. I still like the barely functional concept ones better, but these will do for sure.

If anyone complains about the foglights, I'm sending Suburbans over!

Apparently, removing the front badge will not take the bowtie off of the car. This is disappointing for people who want to replace it with the letters RS or SS. EDIT—apparently, that black bowtie is on the grill, so it may be removed. I take back my previous comment.

The orange reflector is bigger than I remember it. That may become white or blacked out on mine due to its sheer size.

The 3 slots on the side are still not cut out. This is an indicator that such work will have to be done at a shop if anyone really cares to cut those out.

perhaps the difference in brakes is Z28 vs. SS?

those are 20s

I, too, love those headlights... and the turn signals beside them

not too sure about that bowtie removal thing... think that removing it might leave a large gap (remember, we've seen this grill with and without the bowtie, so it might still be removable) but the shape of the bowtie is going to still be there... I'd go aftermarket with a billet or matte grill and put the SS or RS letters on there in either white or silver

Happy to see those headlights! I was getting a little worried there.....

I wonder if that hood scoop is functional? It better be, otherwise I'll take mine without the fake cut out.

I don't like the orange turn signals in the back...also it needs a flush spoiler like the concept one...Other than that it looks sexy

I just may have to get it in black... though I don't like how you can see the muffs... and the orange light on the rear doesn't sti too well with me. I'd rather seem red all the way across. Is that a legality thing?

Otherwise

love it, everything on the front looks amazing. good job.

but get that license plate holder off of there, that looks like dog crap. I know,I know, certain states require it, I just hope i can remove it and fill the holes. It will not be on my Camaro !!!


and whats the deal with those headlights and tail lights, if that is the combination that is stupid. I am glad to see that the tow hitch is still there, that way I can continue to pull my u-haul trailer. That makes up for the taillights, so maybe I will get it after all.

As we've stated in other threads, those are necessary for some nations, like Australia, that require amber blinkers on the rear of the car. The US-spec Camaro will not have amber rears. They will be all red.

I should add that the bottom pictures do not appear to be the same Camaro. Notice that the brakes are not yellow like the top ones.

The front end with all that plastic, especially the grills and lights, has a very low budget look to it. I liked the concept car, and I thought about adding one to my garage, but the production version has left me disappointed so far. I hope things improve.

In the first pic, it looks like the driver is covering the entire dash...hmmm....

It's probably the sign that says "Shunt now in White car, don't tell ANYONE."

Anybody got a guess as to how old these pictures are????
Dear God don't let them put that cheap looking silver grill in the production car. The black grill looks so much better to me.
Also, not sure I have seen those headlights before. They don't look like the halo. I'm sure the rear view is an older Austrailian photo with the red and amber lights.

I know it's pre-pro here but i'm a bit disapointed at the fact that GM still for whatever reason cant figure out how to use projector headlight assemblies....at least this way people can upgrade to HID without having to swap the whole damn headlight. I guess i'm just surprised to see this but they will probably end up surprising us with a projector/HID headlight package as an option on the top end V8, so i'm not getting my undies in a bunch.

I know for most HID might not be a big deal but after having halogens in every vehicle minus my current car, i'll never go back and i have to have them in my future sportscar. :-)
