Chevrolet is getting bolder in testing its upcoming sixth-generation Camaro in public. The camo-covered car was just spotted outside the Nürburgring sporting five-spoke wheels, quad exhaust pipes, a rear wing, and what looks like heat extractors on its hood. While official details are still scarce, these spy shots afford us the best look so far.
The car as a whole looks smaller than the current Camaro. Its doors and rear deck lid appear to be shorter than before. Its roof looks lower as well — a fact that weekend track warriors might cringe at when thinking about dawning a helmet. Thankfully the pictures seem to depict a lowered driving position, likely alleviating any ergonomics issues. The car also looks more rounded. Check out the more curvy secondary side window and rear end.
There is some debate as to what performance level this Camaro falls into. Its quad exhaust and extra vents might suggest a ZL1, but its skinny tires and smaller brake discs suggest this will be the standard SS. Chevy will likely use a detuned version of the Corvette’s 6.2-liter, LT1 V-8. That engine is known for its breathing abilities, so the larger exhaust makes sense. The hood vents are likely a direct application of techniques learned from Corvette, with heat extraction and downforce being the two key advantages.
