A few Z/28 test fleet pics

Was able to check out the new z28 today. The rotors and brakes are insane, I really like the headlamps as well.

I am sure some of the other folks grabbed a few shots, several of us sat in the car and checked out the seats which were very nice but other than that the interior was pretty standard. This one did have air and a radio though.

The biggest surprise to me were the headlights. I loved them, the bulbs in the halogens had little bowties on them.

After seeing the tail lights in person... I dont hate them but I dont particularly love them either... I did however find something I dislike more than the lights, and thats the area the license plate goes it looks like a big block of missing rear it doesnt blend in at all. It is a lot less noticeable on the black car but the white and red it just didnt look right at all to me.

I don't know so take this as complete hear say but I heard they would be about $3200 but I could be completely off base.


They are nice though I like them a lot, not on the z28 but on the other 2014's they were electric and reclined as well as heated.

I kinda felt that was maybe more negative than I meant for it to be. My parents always taught me for every negative thing I said or pointed out I should also point out something positive.

All these cars are top notch, I love the seats, I love the new front end, and the new hoods. There are more things right on this car than wrong that is for sure.

Having a ZL1 I feel very lucky and I feel the new z28 is really gonna be something extremely special as well. The brakes are just wow, I will see if can rustle up some pics of the brakes and the engine for you guys from other members of my club.

Here's more of the pictures that I took -- http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=299208

To answer the question about the camo - it's a pre-production car so although we all know what the Z/28 looks like it still had the camo on it.

What shape were all the Gen-1 tail lights? And who bitched because they weren't like those on a Corvette of the day? No one...

BTW, I can smell those brakes from here...

Thanks to all who posted the pics! That is so cool of the development team to turn the mule loose in public. I would guess the vast majority of manufacturers would never even consider doing such a thing. Huge respect to the guys at Chevy/GM for doing this.

PS- next time they let it out, would someone please shoot pics under the car?

Why the does headrest say SS and not Z/28? Maybe the production model say Z/28 and this is just a preproduction hiccup?

I completely agree, it is awesome that GM does stuff like this and really values the public input.

As far as pic for under the car I don't think the pics here really do justice of how low this thing is to the ground. You could stick the tip of your foot under but that was about it it is pretty low to the ground. I might have been able to stick my hand under with a cellphone camera but woulda looked pretty goofy in front of the crowd that had is surrounded lol

I believe this is just a test mule car, I am certain there were lots of stuff on this one that is far from the finished product. Nonetheless it was cool to see.
