Video game possibly leaks Camaro accessory details?

On Autoblog, they show an in game screen of the upcoming game Midnight Club Los Angeles, and there's a screen of a Camaro racing a Challenger concept. The Camaro has some custom ground effects so it seems like it's not a full-production version, but it does feature interesting looking headlamps, a custom grille, and custom fascia and hood. Since these car designs are licensed from GM, one wonders how much of it is official, and if maybe those headlights will make their way to production on a trim level or as an accessory...

I think that i'm going to wait for September to see the reveal and the announcement of the trim levels... speculation isn't going to get us anywhere...

Given that they're using the concept, I don't think this necessarily indicates anything we'll really see.

Maybe not...but those wheels on the game car are the same as the wheels on that clay model that was showing off the accessories in the earlier post (pic below). So it looks like it's featuring some things GM is at least thinking about.

I still don't know that I believe that those accessory shots are real...

As far as the game, with all due respect - I find it highly doubtful a video game would have more information about a car than what the manufacturer allows to be leaked. Who knows though? I could be talking out my @$$.

Video games take a long time to develop, usually 12 to 18 months, maybe even longer. If a car company wants an upcoming product to be featured in the video game, especially if the car is going to be released around the same time or after the video game, they have to share a lot of confidential information with the developer to be sure that the car is modeled properly.

YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT???

It took a looong time for someone to say the headlights were finished (today, in fact). Weren't the halos design already pretty much done?

My point is, what if GM has something up their sleeves with this whole headlight deal? What if ??? You know???????

Thats a sick Camaro in that screenshot. Im not really a gfx sort of guy but I like those (minus what looks like a Pontiac style lower opening in between those vents where the fog lamps were). I like the side ones and the hood too. Im iffy on the headlights, but its definitely better than seeing the pre-pros for a change!

Edit: Oh yeah, and isn't the grill on the Chally from the concept or whatever? I don't think they have the cross-hair grill on it anymore so it seems to me the game is using old specs and then taking some artistic license with these cars as far as accessories go.

And also, while I'm thinking about it, I followed the developer diaries and info from Forza Motorsport 2 pretty carefully, and they'd mentioned that auto manufacturers have a lot of sway with what screenshots can be released and which ones cannot. So the release of video game screenshots can be another subtle tool for a manufacturer to "leak" promotional information and gauge reaction from the internet...
