If it looks like a Camaro then I like it

If it looks like all the other cars but with Camaro stickers they should have just stayed with the car they have

At least in the CTS they pretty much are. The Rolex cars including the Camaros are tube chassis with carbon fiber bodies.

In 2010, NASCAR introduced a new car for their minor league Nationwide Series and encouraged the manufacturers to use muscle car bodies.

And the automakers kind of listened. Ford brought a Mustang and Dodge brought a Challenger. But Chevy and Toyota decided their "muscle cars" were the Impala and the Camry. Thankfully, that will change for 2013.

Chevy just showed off the brand new Camaro body they'll be using in Nationwide competition for 2013 this morning.
Does it have any relationship to the Camaro you can by for the street? None whatsoever.

Does it look more badass than an Impala or a Camry? Damn right it does. This is the first NASCAR racer that's made us drop our jaw in a while.

Hideous looking. Looks like a mockup for the forthcoming cars 3. I'm sure my daughters will love it.

If you want to see the Camaros battling out with Porsche and mustang. tomorrow at 4pm Eastern time on Speed they will show the Rolex Sports Car Series debut at the Indianapolis Speedway for the first time ever. I've been watching this series for a few years now and at every race when they ask the other teams about the Camaros, they all are always worried about the speed of those cars. most of the time they are battling each other.

My dad works for Katech Performance which built the engine for the Stevenson Camaro -- I think it's Rolex series? Not sure. Any case, whenever a car with their engine in it wins, the owner buys everyone lunch. Pretty cool!

It looks awful!!! What the hell happened to GM saying we're not going to run the Camaro in NASCAR because the proportions from street production car to race car around the green house won't fit properly. Good grief that thing in hideous!!! I'd rather see them run a covered wagon than trying to stretch the body all out of proportion to fit. It should have been the new Malibu. This is all kinds of wrong.

They had to change things some just because of the rules for aero equalness between makes. Besides who would want to run at 200mph 2" from the car on either side or rear at Daytona or Talladega with the visibility the production Camaro has?
Also the car has not completed development yet, I say there will be tweaking of the final car once it's track tested.

Could this be an attempt to entice people to buy more blue Camaro's? I heard they don't sell as well.

I applaud the effort. No way the street proportions were going to work on the NASCAR circuit. Thankfully they didn't design this first , then develop the street body. Hard to tell, but the back end looks like it's still an Impala.

What are the odds a diecast will have this shape and proportions, or simply be a street car with paint???
