Recaros will be available to order at some point through your dealer or any of the GM parts affiliated websites.

Noticed some things from these pics:
  • Door handles are lovely pieces. Great detail.
  • Side view mirrors are beautifully sculpted. Very nice, multiple angles.
  • The front wheel well wickers are hard to see but visible in these photos. Very nicely sculpted and integrated into the front splitter and fender flares (not "flairs"! jezus ).
Really nice detail efforts and should pay great aero dividends. Proof is in the cd when that gets publicized.

Hope they make some pearlescent paint colors available. I think the back end looks awesome BTW.

Thanks for the substance over symbolism GM! Wow, really well done. Lovely car. Solid, purposeful. Puts Porsche to shame. There I said it.

That is one bold statement. It's great the Z/28 could be considered on par with a Porsche. That was unheard of before this release.

No photoshop there. Au Naturale as the French would say

I can only imagine how awesome this beast will look in Red Hot, Black, or Ashen Gray. Thanks for the pics.

everyone for the compliments. I'm glad you're all enjoying them as much as I am. I keep staring at them when I want to look at them...I guess that's the result of a great design.

Ha! Found the Easter Egg!

"Z/28" is forged into the edge of the wheel rims!

That is cool as hell! Hope that makes it to production.

If it's on the ZL1, it will be on the Z/28

Did GM do that on the ZL1 wheels? Sorry, newbie to Camaros

Well, they forged the word 'Camaro' on them, that was on the black 10 spoke wheel. On the polished 5 spoke wheel, it has ZL1 forged in. If it's on this prototype, it should make production.

Thanks for the info

That one photo says so much about how serious this car is and how it's for driving, not for posing. So much tasty delicious functionality of everything in it. Man, I have monumental respect for the team that is responsible for this car and the courage of management to give it the go-ahead.

And they used the word "over" for both HP and Torque. My guess is a real 540/510.

What factors would you consider for them to reach those numbers over what the Z06 had?
