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.

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

Mostly gut, but saying torque is OVER 500 puts it at 510(?). That's 40 more add 40 to 500 HP and you get 540. Also considering the comments regarding the ZL1 and it ended up being 580. Again a guess, but a slightly educated one.

Some of the best pics I have seen yet of the new King of the Hill Camaro. I love this car and wish I had the coin to buy one when it is out. The only thing I noticed is that the rear spoiler kind of looks like an after thought, it just doesn't seem to fit the trunk lines all that well, to much of a gap on the ends. I know it's designed like this and probably there is some aero reasoning for it though.

There is a Cadillac color I have seen recently similar to the matte white on the Z/28. I don't remember Chevy unveiling a car before in a major introduction with a color that is not available.....they have to put this color on the Z/28....even if it's the only color they offer....it seperates the other colors and features of the car perfectly. This is the color I wan't for sure....!

...yes Chance, two different mentions of TQ and HP,....and we like the later much, much more ,...with it being over 500 on both....!!

Thanks to the OP< Great pics!!!> Too bad you don't have more.....and since this is a pre-production car wiith only a portion of it described in detail, there are other things we will find out as we move forward. Things can be added, changed, and other goodies disclosed. What I am not sure of is what the lower front fascia cutout has in it where a DRL would go....it looks like a one piece mold or a cover by the pics...

So with +500 hp and torque on the Z28, could it be the highest factory rated n/a domestic V-8?

If you look at the spoiler closely, you'll notice it's the ZL1 spoiler on a slight 'roid program They added an approximate 1" lip height to it in the back and eliminated the CHMSL.

Thank you for the compliments. I took a total of 187 pictures while at the Javitz Center and then went to the 9/11 site to see for the first time (very sombering) and had taken approximately 10 additional pictures before the battery died. Needless to say, I would have loved to have taken more pics, but being at the show, the Corvette also shared top billing (along with a number of high end vehicles) I've ordered another battery for the next occasion to be bettered prepared

Somebody needs to start a thread begging Chevy to produce a run in that color. It really looks fantastic on the car -- it just looks "right" in a way that the regular white won't quite pull off...

It's matte white vinyl if I'm not mistaken. GM offers it but only for the hood and trunk.

Would be a cool color to offer. GM needs to start offering more colors on the Vette and Camaro. More vibrant and brighter colors. Thats the first thing you see when you look at a car is the color. Guys on the Vette side have been asking for pearl white for a long time. It would look really good on the Camaro also.. It seems like sometimes they are stuck on the same old colors.

Maybe introducing the Z/28 in this color is an indication.
