I'm not a big fan of the headlights or taillights anymore. I understan you have to have high and low beams as well as turn indicators, but come on guys. I have a great design idea if anyone knows Lutz's cell #.

:notheadlights: I thought we were over this.


Just kidding—I'm pretty sure the new ones are going to look like the concept. I'm sure you remember the thread about GMPP options. That one has a cutout of an optional grill with headlights. Take a look at those headlights.

These are probably shared with the new G8 GXP

If you look up the specs on the G8 GXP, it too has Brembo's on it, and I'd be willing to bet they are the same ones!

From the G8 GXP press release...

"The Brembo braking system matches the GXP's boost in performance with an equivalent increase in stopping power. The system includes 14-inch (355 mm) vented front and 12.76-inch (324 mm) rear disc rotors, with special quad-piston alloy calipers in front. The alloy calipers on the rear brakes have single-piston actuation. The four-wheel disc brake system includes standard anti-lock brakes and traction control."

And I second the significance of the Camaro spending time on the 'Green Hell'... Personally I want to hunt down M3's and the only way to do that is with a car that has power AND handling... and it looks like the Camaro will have BOTH!

I hope you guys understand the significance of this car being on the Nurburgring.
GM also tested the CTS-V here. And we all know how capable that car has been on the track. This is absolutely great news. Great article btw.

Yummy!

I needed this.

Bet it's part of the Z28's SS package. Similar to the G8 GXP - Brembo's.

Good work everyone.

And that little guy claimed the record for front wheel drive.

Im thinking we will see around 8:00~8:05 for the top camaro. the track is for handling, power will help only so much there. Based on what we've heard from the G8 regarding handling, and since the top camaro will have a s/c'd engine turning out 500+hp I think it will hold its own very well. Stoping won't be an issue, neither will going. Holding onto that speed in the turns will be the real key. I expect it to be good, but not exceptional. 0.9 g?

I'd bet it'll be better than that... tires are so good these days. If they spec some HIGH end tires the chassis should support 0.95g or slightly better... the balance is good, and the tires are HUGE so I'm hopeful.

They might be using the same front brakes as they both share the same platform, but the rears are definitely different on the camaro pics. For the better I might add. So that's one of my suggestions for the car down

I am also giddy thinking of John Henricy flogging this car on the ring and helping work out its suspension. FTW !!

Well, with the ZR1 and CTS-V (I think) getting Michelins and not the usual Goodyears, I think there's chance that Camaro could get either of those, or even the Parellis(?sp?) as we've seen in many images. I'm wondering where are those HUGE brakes I've seen in other shots that look just like the CTS-V brakes... These look great regardless, but I liked the other big brakes a little more.

Hey Everyone, I see here and other newsgroups, people keep asking about the "Ugly shark fin" on top. Have none of these really smart guys ever heard of "OnStar"???? Also the antenna for XM radio.
On a friendly note, this old guy, 66, needs a new Camaro asap too!!!! Geno

Nice pics....BUT please. Don't justs autmatically give all of Europe those yellow lights just because some countries have them. Here in Sweden we don't have to have them and I sure hope they won't be like that here.
