First off...I always love when I get an email from camaro5.com The pictures are amazing and I'll just reiterate what people have been saying...it is AWESOME to see the Camaro testing at the 'Ring.' It's so cool seeing the Camaro at a speed where the suspension is compressed And I think I'm feeling better about the "shark fin" antenna. It's not that bad and it's small and in the center as opposed to being offset.

I noticed at Autoblog.com and jalopnik.com that they both seem pretty sure that this is the 'SS' version that is testing at the 'Ring.' I say...how do you figure?? Once again, I'll wait until Scott has something to say about it. Until then...it's either an 'SS' or a 'Z28.'(even if Z28 isn't confirmed yet)

The Ring is open to the public. You run there it’s just like running on a public road as far as exposure goes. I’d expect a video from KGP soon to show up on Edmunds or a similar site.

I assume safety when its in a production car. The regula chasis should be fine for normal speeds, but losing control at 150 mph is a whole different ball game.

Ya the back end does look a little...... odd to me too, maybe its just the amber lights.

It doesnt look all that bad with a front plate on it, I like it, altho im glad i dont live in a state that requires a front plate

Great pics.

Oh and the PS on the last page is absolutely Evil looking!!

I read that The Stig from Top Gear and the camera crew were on location at the time of those photos on jalopnik

I'm not a new member, just haven't ever written anything on the forum. I've been keeping up with this website since 2007. This is by far the best website, everyone is very cool, respectful, and passionate about the love for this car. Thanks Camaro5 and to it's members.

this car might just be the top end camaro in its testing stages . big rotors, brembos, lower to the ground, looks like a funcitional front vent, race tire's, and a roll cage. there deff testing sumthin power in their to have a roll cage, and some high end braking system, and super sticky tire's.

Your post makes perfect sense, however, remember that that track is regarded as pretty dangerous, even for supercars. It seems kinda' weird to me if they are doing dynamic testing on a chassis in a car with a roll cage when the production model would be without. MAYBE we can get a roll cage on the top model!!! j/k

I figured the rotors would be a little bigger but who knows what model this is and in what stage of testing it's in. Bigger brakes means more weight though so unless the car really needs them, they're just more weight to throw around. Since they have BREMBO on them, I'm sure they're going to be high quality and worthy to be on this car.

I'm guessing the brakes and roll cage are just for the nurburg run, and have nothing to do with what we will see on the car as far as production options.

I am curious what differences, if any, the lack of a spoiler makes at a track like the ring, where speeds get pretty high, even through some sweeping turns.

No doubt,there is something serious there....to put a rollcage,helmets,gloves and seems like racing seats,that car is packing something,and probably as close to final as it comes....very nice to see and tip-of-the-hat to the spies who got that one......

...If it is...they'd better say something about it on TopGear. maybe they'll be more apt to give a good review.

I'd bet the rollcage is for saftey only. I don't think the chassis needs it for rigidity. But that leads me to wonder...why for saftey? And the only reason I can think of, is they're going to test Camaro's limits (if it has any ) so better to be safe than sorry.

Hmm...let me play devil's advocate...

I'm sure that the Camaro testing on the 'Ring' is packin' some heat...but wearing a racing suit, helmet, and gloves are probably pretty standard for testing a car on a difficult track, such as Nurburgring...or any track for that matter. Plus, if the test driver was, in fact, the Stig...as some have said...well, he drives vehicles in full race gear even if it's a smart For Two coupe...that's just part of his character. As for the racing seats...I don't know how you saw that (someone want to zoom in for me??)...but I'm hoping that we get some seriously bolstered seats, if not seats outsourced to Recaro, Sparco, or Corbeau...

Again...just devil's advocate...remember that!

Thumbs up Motor Trend's take on 2010 Chevrolet Camaro running the Nurburgring

With time beginning to run out before its official debut at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, the Chevrolet Camaro development team has been busy lately.

The Camaro traveling circus has flown up from Down Under (the car is sporting Victoria, Australia plates) and is stretching out a prototype's legs on the Nurburgring, which in the past several years has become a favorite GM testing destination.

The black Camaro in question features red Brembo calipers, and what looks to be slightly lower stance, but otherwise it looks about the same as the dozens of other prototype Camaro sightings in recent months, save recent photos of the rumored SS variant that is reportedly in the pipeline.

The V-8 powered Camaro is expected to pack somewhere around 400 horsepower supplied by either the Corvette's LS3 or Pontiac G8 GT's L76 and should roll out alongside the base model V-6 in the early months of 2009 as a 2010 model. Expect the SS version to follow sometime after that.

If you cheack most racing regulations, any car that can run the 1/8th mile (all we have up in the boonies :( ) anything faster than 7 seconds has to have a roll cage.. that should be more than easy enough for the camaro to do. and i have raced the 'ring in GT4 ... its demandin to play in a GAME so i can just imagine what it would be like to fly along the final stretch in the new camaro Z/28 SS or baseline I cant wait at any rate
