Thanks for the catch, looks great!
I like the lights. Nice tribute to the 69 camaro while still being a modern look. I think the build team should be proud of their design. I'm sure they agonized over every detail keeping it pure and right according to the legacy of the Camaro. I like the refresh and can't wait to see what they are working on next!

So the brochure posted April 1 that the v6 was getting 354 hp was not an april fool's joke?

believe it when i see it. that's a lot to squeeze out of a stock engine, especially if they stick with the lfx now if it's true I'd be lieing if I said I wasn't at least a LITTLE jealous, but will it take a MPG hit? Even if, still not sure an extra 25-30 horses can make the front and rear ok...
Still not a fan of either.
guess I just really like the large uppger grill in the 10-13's...just looks so much MORE then the new look.

i just read that after getting home, he said that the v6 engine was going to be around 350hp. and for some reason, he said that his was "just" an SS. I asked about the z28, and he said it is a track only car, not out till the summer of 2014. "you wouldnt want to drive it around on the roads". The recaros were black, and has a cover over the top half, so i assume it says SS or something, but wasnt about to take it off lol. The car lights looks awesome at night, with the reverse light being sooo bright, almost blue/white, but really bright, which will help with the backup camera at night. The headlights were brighter than normal ones, I noticed it was a camaro from the front, but didnt realise that it was a 4 till' I passed, and hapened to see them in my tail lights. I realllly like them at night, will upload the quick follow video in a second, you WILL agree! thx for the comments!

He showed me the color hud and dic, but said no pictures of the inside until one ships.

I guess we shall see. What what's new that was released by GM said the v6 will be 323 hp. As other official press releases did. Look like 323 hp might be around 350 hp Otherwise, the v6 is going to get a nice bump in hp.

doesnt look too bad in these photos, but i really wished they wouldnt of made the rear look like that. looks too plain and, dare i say, ricer-like. they also shouldve redesigned the halos. it seems like they reused the same halos as gen-5, but the new front fascia makes the car look as if it has eyes that are too far apart. the 4-headlight halogens on the z28 does the front redesign better justice.

Cool! I would have called the cops if I noticed that someone was following me. Nice pics though and thanks for the info!

About the 350HP, I think it would be a nice thing since the Hyundai car is directly competing against the V6 Camaro, so 350 horse would make sense.

By the way... if you were in the group of people that did not like the 2014 Camaro, after seeing it in person, have you changed your mind?

The tail lights are definitely uninspiring, even in motion. They just look like tail lights on any generic sedan that you see driving around.

At least the 10-13's stand out/are different (imo)

Wondering about this also!

Nice catch, and thanks for posting! Any mention on when those first order will ship and when we may start to see them show up on the streets?
