2011/2012 Camaro Z28 LSA Engine and Hood Design Revealed!
8 Attachment(s)
As reported on Homepage.

We bring you visual proof of the Camaro Z28 prototype testing with the supercharged LSA motor (same as that used in the CTS-V). Even if one thinks it's suspicious that a test prototype's engine would have any sort of engine cover bearing the name of the engine, the motor underneath does appear to be that LSA upon visual inspection.

For those not familiar with the LSA engine, it's a 6.2L supercharged engine SAE certified at 556hp @ 6100rpm and 551 lb-ft torque @ 3800rpm :confused0068: That does not mean that the Camaro will come with the same power though. We could possibly see less or even MORE power.

Also seen clearly for the first time is the design of the Camaro Z28 prototype hood. There looks to be a two-row heat extractor vents design (we've reposted an older photo from the top-down angle for an additional view). Keep in mind however, there's no guarantees that this is the final hood design of the Camaro Z28.

And finally, a Z28 prototype has been spotted in what appears to be aqua blue metallic (or a similar blue color). Previous prototypes have all been red.

The wheels are 20" SP550 anodized black - 20x10 front and 20x11 rears. Wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar G:2 tires.

Finally we get something revealed. Too late for me, but it's nice that the Z is on it's way!

nice to see a medium blue back.

cool engine, the hood looks ok but there are better ones out there I think.

khabboub 09-28-2010 02:55 AM

that hood is going to be a nice addition.

im pretty excited for this.

khabboub 09-28-2010 02:55 AM

oh and those fog lights look like they are a little high.

wow exciting! I hope they keep testing, until its better than the gt500 in every aspect.

I think it should be noted that this paticular version had the LSA out of the CTS-V. It is a posibility that the others did not. Where these are test mules, they could be using several different configurations to see which one they like best. I'll keep my SS and add a SC and keep up. :D Love the front facia though. I can see that making its way onto my car.

I feel all tingley. I get like that when I'm teased unmercifully.

I REALLY like the Leno hood, but I won't poop upon this without a proper viewing.

Very nice! Looks like the Supercharged LSA is definitely in and not the LS7 that some are hoping for. I can't wait to see the finished product. The blue one almost looks like it has a different hood. It might be the angle, but it looks like it has an intake/ raised area near the front of the hood and the other ones are a little farther back on the hood.
