Wow. A manual transmission pace car! You never see this in the United States.

So are those new tail lights for the 2013 Camaro? I've never seen lights like that on the Camaro before. It's like the 2 lights on each side are all one piece now instead of 2 separate lights on each side and they have a black housing instead of silver. These look waaayyy better than the 2010-2012 tail lights.

Good question. What is the deal with those tail lights? I agree, they are sexy.

Don't get too excited about the tail lamps. Looks like that Camaro is an export/overseas model.

Chevy needs to make a WTCC street package for the Cruze... I'd buy one. Those little cars looked nasty.

Those Cruze are really nice to see!!! I had the chance last month at the Salzburgring in Austria. Also, nice to hear, as the 1.6 Turbo engines make a nice noise. And it was really cool to see how they dominate the category, against BMW, Ford and Seat

Nice video, obviously taken in Europe somewhere and with an export model Camaro. The Chevy Cruze has dominated the World Touring Car Championship WTCC events since their introduction. I don't know why we don't have a championship like that in America. In some of the WTCC races I've watched, they say the Cruze is pushing 160+ mph in the straights....not too shabby for a 4 cylinder car....but, then, it IS a Chevy!!!

I didn't know that...awesome! I wondered how they could call it the "World" touring car championships and not include at least one race in the US. I will surely watch that race....and, I hope it gets better TV coverage than the midnight to 3:00 a.m. airings I usually see.
