Perhaps that little piece of silver plastic above would make the difference? Boy would I love to have that cool concept shifter ..

... the close-ups of some of the panels really shows, to good effect, some of the fits and the attention to detail... stylish, but clean and uncluttered. Now if only the show goers wouldn't scuff the door panels and sills !!

For the folks that have seen it in person... do the color accent panels in the door come off as shiny and hard? ... and do you think it would damage/scratch easily?

Just came back from the show. Unfortunately they decided to lock up the car and wouldn't let anyone sit in it. No amount of sweet talk would change their minds. The exterior still looks very impressive.

Yes the interior panels do look shiney and hard, however I did not get the impression that they would scratch easily. I had the impression that they would be very easy to clean up, and that one might expect to see similar panels in a Jaguar, or BMW. I was impressed. My wife would have prefered that the door panels be leather, however I liked the hard shiney plastic. I thought it looked very modern.

Wow i wouldve been so upset, i understand why they would lock it up, but still going in thinking that i finally get to sit in the car only to find out that i cant, realy sucks.
When i go to CIAS, im going to bring some extra cash just in case, might help me a bit, i hope the same security officer is there from last time, we had a long conversation last time, im sure he would help me out if he the ability to.

It'd be kinda cool if there was a small bowtie a little bigger than the one on the back of key FOB, with a dim gold LED behind it that would light up when the guages are lit. I never paid attention to that until you pointed it. Nice catch.

I understand the logic of not letting anyone set in this vehicle due to the fact that is "still technically" not a production vehicle.

But damn i wanted to sit in this so bad just for the view.

As for the comments of people who were 5'7-5'9 having to slide down in their seat to see the window seems like an issue with the placement of the seat. Many people in the height range of 6'3-6'5 on this forum have stated they absolutely love how much head room they have in this vehicle...

I bet this will be the most stunning Camaro color out in the sunlight. All we've seen are indoors pics but this color will POP under the sun!

All in all I think the interior is pretty nice. I am not crazy about the square housing for the speedo, etc. but the first gen font on the RS is very well done.

But it's a Camaro...not Bentley...and for 25k you get 300 horsepower and some bells and whistles The car looks great and the designers have made a big effort to make it feel like a Camaro. It works well for me. Now if I could only fit my 3 kids in the back of a Imperial Blue convertible, we would be in business.

I had noticed this a while back and posted, but no one seemed to know. My best guess is that what you're seeing here is a pic taken at maybe chest level, or even lower. I'm betting when you sit in the car, at eye level, you can't even see that top section of the display, so its blacked out. Imagine if they had used that space and now a tall driver couldn't see it. Massive complaints of making a DIC that most drivers couldn't see.

Can anyone who's sat in the car confirm this? I guess we'll all know soon enough.

A little news for you.. this isn't a Japanese rice burner, it's an AMERICAN MUSCLE CAR!!!!

Interior color...

So, is this interior Grey or Beige? The Beige in the other IBM was black on the headliner. This one looks like it has a grey headliner. (see rearview mirror shot) Just curious. I sure wish Chevy would make a nice interior selection webpage or video. I already ordered grey, but am waffling now.

Agreed...Ya know, I told myself it wasnt possible to rice a camaro....but I have a feeling im going to be gravely disappointed. Not the majority obviously, but damn....

Most people don't release the excessive lighting covers up a cheap ass interior..yet a well designed interior that doesn't look like a f---ing space ship is deemed as "cheap".

The interior was brown with beige inserts in the seats and door panels. It looked really good. I currently have a black leather interior on order. After seeing this interior I want to change it to black with gray inserts. I think that is an option, but I have to check into it to be sure. I love the brown with beige, but the black with gray will go better with my black with silver rally stripes 2SS/RS.

There is no brown. Maybe the black just sorta looked brown coz of the lighting? The only options are:
1. All black seats with silver/gray door and dash inserts
2. Black seats with beige inserts and beige door and dash inserts
3. Black seats with gray inserts, gray carpet, headliner, door, and dash inserts
4. Black seats with orange inserts and stitching with orange door and dash inserts

The first three are available in cloth and leather but #4 is only available in leather and costs extra.
