    Doesn't surprise me at all seems like GM been using the TF movies as a 2-3 hour commercial. I will just stick with what I've got now.

    They had a blue one at the Philly Car show. It was sweet!

    Such a thing of beauty. I have no desire for the ZL1, but I would like to get the front fascia and ground effects put on my SS.

    Looks like the Corvette ZR1 with that hood. Mind you, both Corvette and Camaro's are made by the same company.

    I would have liked the Z28 badge instead. Really nice car, but like the Shelby 500, the top of the line is not something I can afford.

    No idea what KW means but It pumps out 550 Hp with 550 Ib/ft of torque

    those with the current Cadillac CTS-V should be familiar with the LSA engine shared between these two vehicles.

    Wow that is a beauty! I hope they still have an option for the rally stripes instead of the single one.

    Its kilowatts, which is what most cars in Australia use as the preferred measurement of engine power.

    And I was a bit wrong, I grabbed another article on the car, and its 6.2ltr. It is supercharged however. And it does make 550hp, which I think is about 414kW.

    I eagerly await the next Commodore HSV that will be packing that engine.

    Looks like a 5th Camaro would be added to the Stable. I wonder if the wife will let me have 3 in the driveway???

    It's too bad, for fans of this poorly (IMO) designed vehicle, that BB has that awful spoiler added on him now.

    I know you're just trolling and all, but please, enlighten us on how you think it's poorly designed?

    It's one thing if you don't like it, but its design is nearly flawless.

    Well he did say IMO (in my opinion) so it probably is just his opinion.

    It's mine too, I think the car is as ugly as fuck. Brilliant engineering, an absolute master stroke of an advertising campaign and that engine gives me a woody: but I still thing its ugly. I''d rather had that engine, in the HSV Commodore body.

    Of course the customers who paid $35,000 are going to score it highly. I'm a Mustang guy and even I can appreciate some of the lines on the new Camaro. However, the back end/trunk is laughable at best.

    The trunk is just an area to run a rollcage and stick some speakers to me. I'd take form over function every time on a car that's essenially a toy. I hate the tail lights though. I'm probably going to pass on this car anyway, after riding in my friends Ariel Atom it WILL be my next new car.
