Okay, its beautiful. But this 'muscle' look is part of the reason GM can't sell any cars to compete with Mercedes, BMW, Audi, and soon the new VW Phaeton.

Cadillac should stick with the successful new and refined look. This return to the 'american muscle' roots is not going to catch on.

I would have bought a CTS over my car hands down.

Huh? The hood is on a RACE car.....what does that have to do with selling cars vs. the competiton? Which they're doing pretty well at, by the way....

Great photos! And welcome. Way to keep an eye out and thanks for posting the comparison!

Oh - and I'm all for GM actively carving out their individuality, whether it's on race cars or street cars. Pumping out another Benzo look-a-like, ala Lexus and <gulp> Hyundai, wouldn't do them any good.

I'd bet my truck nutz on it.

As far as the hood speculation...sure, why not. But if I'm looking at the Z/28-HP Edition "spy shots" correctly, the hood appears to have vertical dividers along the horizontal slots, while the CTS-v race car hood has only horizontal slots...IMO most hoods with heat-extractor slots are going to look somewhat similar to each other...

And big side note- that ctsv coupe race car is beautiful!! The wheels look like they tried to keep them as close to looking like the production wheels, which I think is cool. It further makes the owner feel like they own a "race car". (the 556 hp doesnt hurt either)

Maybe it's just me, but I don't like that idea of the hood for the Z28. I think that CTS-V looks awful, too. Looks like a riced-out Honda doing drifts. Nothing about that hood says 'muscle car', therefore I don't want it anywhere near my muscle car

I'm normally gung-ho for new hotness on our Z-Baby, but I'm not a fan of the Caddy hood. The Leno hood was all kinds of awesome IMHO.

Not gonna worry though, I can change the hood if I want it that badly. It's what's UNDER the hood that really matters.

I honestly don't think we've seen the camouflaged final product. The production camaro stuck pretty close to the original renderings with Sang Yup in the photos. I believe the next level Camaro will have the hood we've seen in the old photos in the studio, the silver one. I think we'll get the wheels, hood and dove tail spoiler we seen in the old photos.
As for names, if not the Z28, then what could it be? ZR5 for the 5th gen. Z5, ZL5, ZX5? I think it will be something we haven't heard yet, not an old name brought back. SSR would be cool, but we all know that name was given to a useless pickup that was a waste of time and resources.

I would tend to agree....but I'm not sure GM would bring out a car with this much of a spotlight on it with styling features the aftermarket has available ad-naseum....

Here's the video from the sebring test and the hood while in the up position looks very similar to the pics of the prototype Z/28/HP edition Camaro. Check @ about 10-11 seconds in on the video below:
