Arrow NEWS: Spy Shots: 2012 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 running the 'Ring

Filed under: Spy Photos, Coupe, Performance, Chevrolet, GM


2012 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 spy shots - Click above for high-res image gallery

The highly anticipated Chevrolet Camaro Z28, which we caught an early glimpse of this summer, has been shipped off to Germany to be put through its paces on the Nürburgring. Much of the early prototypes' heavy front cladding has been stripped away and replaced with General Motors' usual checkerboard camouflage, but we can still see the Z28 upgrades clear as day under all that tape.

As if the massive power bulge in the hood doesn't give it away, the Z28 will be powered by the same supercharged 6.2-liter LSA V8 that's found in the Cadillac CTS-V. In that application, 556 horsepower is pumped to the rear wheels, but there's no telling what sort of power numbers will be on tap in the Z28.

We won't be shocked if the Z28 makes its official debut at the Los Angeles or Detroit auto shows with the first sales starting sometime in 2011.

I love how it looks almost like a floating door between two wheels.

It's hard to tell because the suspension is loading and unloading in those pics, but it looks like a lower ride height that the SS.

Looks like the ZR1 or Z06 front brake calipers w/out the carbon rotors.

in the video of it driving strait, it does appear to be lowered much more than the ss. which is a good thing. the ss needed to be lowered about 1" more than it sits ftock. this car has a very nice presence to it. can anyone tell what tires its running?
