2012 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 – 6.2L Supercharged Monster Rendered into Reality

Quote:
Chevy’s upcoming Camaro Z28 is popping up all over the place, from spy photos to our imaginations. While no official pics have yet to be released, it won’t be long before we’re sure to see a fully uncovered version of the supercharged 6.2-liter Shelby GT500 rival. But why wait for official news from General Motors, when we can employ the talents of skilled artist Jon Sibal.

That looks like a hot mess. What's with the skinny meats up front? That certainly won't help handling.

I certainly hope this artist's rendition isn't representative of what it really looks like.

I'm really, really, really liking that new front end treatment. I can't wait to see the finished product and read about the specs!

Agreed, that front end is sick. I like that treatment with the black...fangs? where the fog lights would be. Didn't one of the Transformers Camaros have a look like that too?

it's a photoshoped SS. Made to look like they THINK the Z28 will look like.

Right, but I don't even like the front end. It's overdone, and something just doesn't look right. I can't put my finger on what it is.

Oh well, I definitely ain't buying so my opinion doesn't mean squat.

Rendering looks good IMO. But I think the Z will actually have a different grille than the SS. More like the Bumblebee or Jay Leno Camaro. I also think it will have a different hood than whats seen here. Pure speculation on my part.

Yeah, I think the hood and grill will be different as well. It will also have a different rocker/gfx treatment.

Not to mention that the Mule doesn't appear to have a mail slot.

i think that the rendering was just trying to give an idea of the front end. i dont think its a representation of the entire car. i do agree it may have a different hood. maybe higher cowl. and probably no mail slot. but well see.

I think that Transformers II-style front end looks like hell. It belongs on an Evo or some kid's body kitted Honda. Way too wild for my tastes.

Instead of spending time looking and speculating on someone's photoshop (those front tires are skinny because it's a photoshopped Camaro SS, not an actual Z28 you dummy!), why not simply pick up a copy of Transformers 2.

When certain (or a certain) upper GM brass gave permission to producers use the actual Z28 design for Bumblebee, certain other (lower rung) GM people who weren't aware that this happened damn near had a coronary.

Hints of the Z28 also appeared at other car avenues such as SEMA and other auto shows last season.

And all these vehicles are far more accurate (let alone better) than that fellow's photoshop.

the front ports of the " z28" are similar to the cts-v. it loks really good on the caddy. im sure it will look good on the camaro. cant really pass a judgement on a photshop. the real deal will look different even if this is how it will look.

Thanks for being the one to finally say this!
