Black or painted wheels just look "cheap" to me..kinda like someone taking some rusty or corroded mags and giving them a paint job to get more like out of them. Also there is no contrast with the tire. If we have to have a painted wheel I'd rather see silver painted.

Look at the pic of the white one i have displayed below, just take out the coloring on the rims that was added. That's what the polished rims look like and I believe the stripping is an option.

It also appears to be sporting the polished stainless shields between the exhaust tips & the diffuser.

What would be the point of teasing us with something we aren't going to get at this point? I think this is one of the surprises they've been keeping under the radar.

I predicted a new ZL1 grille several months back.

This thread needs a "Which do you like better?" poll.

Personally I was going to replace the eggcrate anyway. If GM does it for me, so much the better.

It matches the lower grill and rear valence panel. I am pretty sure this is the stock grill for the ZL1.

I kind of agree with you for sure on one thing. I like the grille and I don't mind the stripe to bad. I totally agree with you on the black wheels. I have never been a fan of black wheels and the blacked out look. To me that just looks blah! But to each their own. If it is your car, you like the blacked out look and you are paying for it. Well that is fine with me.

That's the grill that should've came with the Camaro stock. None of this eggcrate nonsense :( Damn, you future ZL1 owners will have one sexy looking machine!

The ZL1 was parked in the lobby of the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
It was on display as part of a 2 day dealer conference (Sept 27 and 28).
The car was lit up with multicolored LED beams from the ground, and the lobby is pretty dark, so it was hard to get decent pics. No, these are not cell phone pics either...just an old camera that produces a lot of lens flare.
I realized after the fact that I did not snap a pic of the interior, but all the windows on this prototype were lightly tinted, so it wasn't easy anyways.

Also present, was the 2012 Chevy Sonic Z-Spec, GMC Granite concept, and the 2012 GMC Sierra Ultimate GFX.

I posted these pics to several Camaro Facebook pages (including Camaro5) ..and Camaroz28.com picked up the story first, and slapped their watermark on it.

Here is a short video of the car!

I have a second, longer video not yet posted too ;-D
Hey Ted, Thanks for the pictures!
Any chance you remember the color of the stitching in the seats and dash? was it red or yellow??? I really hope for a "pick your color" kinda thing (or anything else than red)...

Yes Jedi I love this look as well. I hope it will be the standard issue equipment!

I definitely like this grille better. Add the Bumblebee rear quarter vents, color key the front bow tie and move the ZL1 emblem from the hood to front quarter (delete the Camaro emblem) and it's perfect IMO.
