2010 Indy 500 Pace Car

http://www.gminsidenews.com/forums/f...evealed-87183/

Just unveiled at Noon E.T. I am a huge pace car person, but they really dropped the ball on this one. Sorry for not posting direct pictures, but that is a no go at work.

Yeah, that's sort of a weak pace car package. Of course, I'm still hung up on the '93, which in my opinion, is the coolest of all the Indy pace cars.

Arrow NEWS: 2010 Camaro SS Pace Car ready for Indy 500

Filed under: Motorsports, Coupe, Chevrolet, Specialty

2010 Chevrolet Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car - Click above for high-res image gallery

The Indianapolis 500 is still more than five months away, but General Motors is getting a jump on the 2010 season with the unveiling of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS Pace Car.

Shown today at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the tangerine Camaro is a rolling homage to the original pony pace car that rolled onto the track in 1967, complete with Inferno Orange Metallic paint, White Diamond rally stripes and a color-matched instrument panel. While the 6.2-liter V8 apparently remains unchanged (oddly, the press release quotes 400 horsepower, but the SS normally comes with 426), the rest of the modifications are primarily cosmetic, including the Indy 500 logos adorning the doors, front fenders and seat headrests, along with an all-new front grille that's slated to be available as a Camaro accessory in the future. The only safety equipment is the strobe light system mounted inside the rear window, negating the need for a traditional roof-top light bar.

The 2010 Indy 500 Camaro will be on display at the Indianapolis Auto Show starting on December 26, but you can get all the details by checking out the gallery below and the press release below the fold.

Arrow NEWS: Official 2010 Indy 500 Pace Car Is Yet Again A Camaro SS [I Am Indy]

The Camaro SS will patrol The Brickyard for the 2010 Indianapolis 500 in bright Inferno Orange with white stripes as an homage to the '69 Indy Pace Car. The best feature? A trick light-bar integrated into the rear window.

In addition the the bright paint and safety equipment, the new Camaro will get custom 2010 Indy 500 badges everywhere, a custom grille, Amber lens tail lamps and new floor mats. Otherwise the Camaro is an RS/SS package with the same 400 HP 6.2-liter V8. There's no word on when or if this will go on sale, but Chevy does plan to offer the grille as an option from the Camaro parts catalog.


More details on mullet-and-flag waving Camaro in the press release below.
Chevrolet Camaro SS To Pace 2010 Indianapolis 500 Mile Race

Officials from Chevrolet and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway unveiled the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS Indianapolis 500 Pace Car at the Speedway's Hall of Fame Museum Dec. 18.
"We've enjoyed a great partnership with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway throughout the years, and are proud to once again have the privilege of pacing the Indianapolis 500 in a Camaro," said Jim Campbell, General Manager, Chevrolet.
The 2010 Chevy Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car is a 21st century sports car that looks to the future with a nod to the heritage of both the car and the race. The first year for Camaro to pace the Indianapolis 500 was in 1967, the year the Camaro made its debut. Camaro has since paced the race in 1969, 1982, 1993 and 2009.
This year's pace car features an Inferno Orange Metallic paint scheme with White Diamond rally stripes that travel from the front to the rear over the top of the body, as well as extending to the interior dash. The design is a modern interpretation of the original rally stripe that debuted on the 1969 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car.
"Chevrolet has done it again with the 2010 Chevy Camaro SS Pace Car, it is simply beautiful," said Jeff Belskus, president and CEO of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation. "The car's tribute to '500' history and its sports car feel will be a big hit with our fans, and it will look great leading the Indianapolis 500 field on Race Day."
This year's pace car is equipped with a stock 400 hp 6.2-litre V-8, an RS appearance package and leather interior with Inferno Orange interior accents. It also features design cues that further enhance the Camaro's head-turning design. Features unique to the pace car include:
•2010 Indianapolis 500 event logo painted on doors and embroidered on driver and
passenger headrests
•2010 Indianapolis 500 event logo badges on front fenders
•All-new front grille insert that Chevrolet plans to offer as a future Camaro accessory
•Amber lens tail lamps
•Complete safety strobe light system with custom interior light bar in the rear window
(no rooftop light bar)
•All-new GM Accessory floor mats with red and orange accent stitching
The 2010 Camaro SS Pace Car will be highly visible during all Indianapolis 500 track activity days from Opening Day of practice for rookies and veterans on May 15 through the race, set for a 1 p.m. start on Sunday, May 30.
IMS officials recently announced a streamlined 2010 Indianapolis 500 schedule that combines qualifying into two action-packed days - Pole Day on May 22 and Bump Day on May 23 - yet provides only one less day of track activity compared to the 2009 schedule.
For 2010, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will play host to the Indianapolis 500, part of the IZOD IndyCar Series, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series' Brickyard 400 on July 25 and the Red Bull Indianapolis GP on Aug. 29 for the MotoGP World Championship.

I think the front of this car is awesome. It is the best looking '10 Camaro yet.

Are you kidding? I think the colored accents around the running lights capture the spirit of the old '69 RS to perfection. It looks better than the hidden headlights of the old pace car. But of course, the mail slot could go

What does everyone think of this? Does the car look lowered to you?

Yes the car looks lowered for sure.

I like the grille but not the Mustang/Viper style stripes.
