Chevrolet Camaro SS Daytona 500 Pace Car - Click above for high-res image gallery

Spoliers and skirts and lights, oh my! Chevrolet is preparing one highly customized Camaro SS to pace the upcoming Daytona 500, and it appears that the Bowtie brand has thrown every accessory at its disposal to see what would stick.

At the rear, there's a ducktail spoiler the likes of which we haven't seen on a Camaro since the late 1970s. The profile view is dominated by a ground-effects package that makes the pony car's already slab-sided, Coke-bottle appearance even more pronounced. We also note a set of wheels reminiscent of the units fitted by Hurst. And it's easy to miss the new chin spoiler and slightly modified grille.

The most noticable updates, though, are surely the lights, which have to be bright enough for the entire field at Daytona to spot them. There's an aerodynamic light bar up top and a pair of orangey-yellow lamps out back that the spy photographer says could practically be seen from space. See for yourself in our high-res image gallery below.

I guess the taller hood missed his inspection.

Those wheels are absolutely terrible.

Where does he get off calling the Camaro slab-sided?
It's anything but.
It has to be one of the LEAST slab-sided cars ever built.

That will be the first Indy pace car ever with a Daytona badge on the side...

Looks awesome whatever race it is for. I personally love the high wing spoiler.

Was never a fan of the extra body cladding just too busy. Makes the car look heavy.

That's just the regular GFX available since the car has been out, heritage grill, and blade spoiler. No big deal here! Nice honor though.
