Wow, really really like the low stance.

And, to get this out of the way:

Headlights are not production
Taillights won't be yellow in the US
Won't be two antennas on the roof

Were they crawling down that track? If they were going at any decent speed, wouldn't we see some motion blur on the wheels?

Either way, looks good to me!!! We need some video!

it looks like a lower stance too, because it's got the bigger rims on it. those smaller rims left such a gap between them and the fender

Real nice. I see they have a roll cage in it. Also I notice that the right rear is looking like it's lifting off a bit. Hope there no wheel hopping going on there.:notheadlights:

Not with a decent camera. They have cameras that don't get motion blur with bullets.

Look at the last two pics and you will have your answer.

I wouldn't worry about the speed they were moving at. I took a look at the EXIF image data on yesterday's "Brembo" spyshots @ LLN and the photog was using a Canon EOS 1D Mark II digital SLR. That camera is capable of doing shots up to 1/8000 of second - essentially stopping the motion of nearly everything (airplane propellers, water drops, hummingbirds).

For all we know, they could have been doing 150mph!

Pics look great! Keep them coming! This is just making my week fly by!

Off subject: Does anyone know if a Z/28 badge in in the trim levels or is it just the SS badge with different levels of equipment? I know there hasn't been an offical work yet but any educated speculation(sp?) would be great.

Thanks!

Mine too! I can just hear the roar as it flys by........

Some of the pictures...it seems to me that one side of the car is MUCH higher off the ground that previous pics, and the other side seems like it is much lower. Mayve that's what you're seeing?

Educated Speculation says Z28 will be the limited numbers, GT500 killer. Search the forums here, you'll find A LOT about this.

Looks like they are moving pretty quick. Lots of compression on the right side. Very visible in the 1st two shots.

There is no excuse for not having video. You mean to tell me you have time to take the photos but not a quick Vid... They must be afraid of some sort of action by GM if Videos got out....

GREAT shots! Love this car. I so can't wait! Definitely the best spy shots to date.

nice to see it on the ring. looks like its all coming together. I guess thats why they put the upgraded brakes on it since stock units wouldn't be able to take the beating.

I do hope this car looks less like a brick then it dose in some of the pics. the lines are lovely but that damn beltline looks high despite the attempts to subdue it with the long fender flare line.

That thing looks so awesome. I'm definately getting the black now! Great pictures! So does any one know if the brakes are going to be part of a special handling package?
