Z/28 pics from the Detroit Auto Show

I was the at the show today and took a few pics for you Z/28 guys. The lighting was very bright compared to the other displays and even though it was a large display it was very cramped (same for the C7); so pardon the cell phone pics.

Camaro display view from the 2nd level.

I like that setup. Pretty cool with the Nurburgring style graffiti. Thanks for the pics.

Yep. I wonder if it will be the only 5th gen without a gold bowtie.

Dang. Just noticed how it is only the outline. Pretty cool. Probably keeps the engine a couple of degrees cooler.

Visited Detroit Auto Show on Saturday evening. The Z06 and C7R (to me) really stole the show. They were 3, and 4 deep at those displays vs. the Z/28 which was almost hidden (the white Camaro SS vert on display seemed more prominent than the Z/28 or ZL1).

The Cadillac El Miraj is a real beauty as well. Really stunning curves which evolve Cadillac's very angular lines.

Cheers,
Brian.

Look close and you can see the grille through bowtie.

Agreed on the C7 display. It was insanely packed the entire time I was there. I did get to sit in two of the C7's and the interior is simply incredible. The competition seats are pretty firm but I don't see how a wide person would be comfortable in them. As for layout and space; both the C7 and Camaro displays were cramped compared to other displays

You're welcome. Pics don't do this car justice. It has a commanding presence in person. I liked it a lot.

Thanks for the wonderful pix, DrkPhx!

I have a pic of the Z/28 and the Vette's I can post on here once I get back home (they are stuck on my digital camera and I don't have a USB to grab them off).

Also of note during the week prior to Detroit was/is GM's announcements re: 4G/LTE capabilities directly in their new vehicles. This means no longer needing a device to 'pair' with your car (unless you want it to). Your passengers can also utilize the mobile WiFi HotSpot capability/bandwidth of your 4G connection.

Kind of..... I was wondering if there were any detailed lines that made it appear like there was a road course around the bow tie. That would be cool!

That front lip was way bigger in person. Not the most streetable camaro. :/

You also missed an ass shot; here's a complementary one. One big wing out back..

A couple pics from the Detroit Auto Show 2014! Not Camaro specific, but the other folks (DrkPhx) have provided good pics of the Z/28.

I also threw in the Caddy ElMiraj as it is a nice piece of machinery!

Cheers,
Brian.

This car still keeps me up after a week of seeing it. All you guys getting one..... congratulations, you are buying the best car of the 2014 NAIAS. So iconic, so extreme, so purpose built, you dont have to waiste a second thinking what it was meant for. However, it had black calipers, not the dark grey as the ones seen on the white car that sold, kewl.

Anyhow, I have to spend some money on my 1LE to get this car out of my head and to get ready for you guys when you hit the track. What a car.
