Feast your eyes on the luscious Camaro Z28 that has been laid before you in all of its beauty and triumph. Yeah, we received confirmation of this gorgeous piece of machinery last month when GM’s Vice President of Global Vehicle Engineering Karl Stracke openly confirmed its production, but to actually have a photo of it while it gets tested with a bunch of other Camaros just increases the level of excitement that we were already feeling.
The 2012 Camaro Z28 features a lower front fascia than the standard Camaro and much larger intakes. At the rear you can see quad exhaust with dual pipes on each side. The sound that comes out of this beast was described by the photographer as “nothing short of unholy!” The wheels are 20″ SP550 anodized black (20×10 in the front and 20×11 in the rear) wrapped in Goodyear tires. Last month, Stracke mentioned that the new Z28 would be built on a new Alpha platform (and not the Zeta like the current car). He also stated that he didn’t like the steering wheel controls on the Camaro because they were placed too far and the driver needed to remove his hands from the wheel when trying to reach them. We expect to see those changes as well as a few other tweaks when the Z28 is officially unveiled.
TheChevrolet Camaro Z28 will be rocking a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine mated to an automatic transmission. Official numbers have not been released yet, but we cannot wait to see what this baby will do!
Stay tuned! As soon as we get more details, we’ll pass them along to you!
