Chevrolet recently offered Top Speed the opportunity meet the man responsible for the sculpted shoulders you see in the side mirrors when sitting behind the wheel of the 2010 Camaro.
One would think that the lead exterior designer for the rebirth of and American icon would be wearing blue jeans, cowboy boots and a straw hat.
However, that was not the case with our new friend Luciano Nakamura, and to be honest it was a very similar case with the for the rest of the Camaro’s design team, made up of quite a multicultural group of talented engineers.
Luciano tuned out to be a very cool fellow, but at first there was a sudden sense that we should feel intimidated by this all powerful General Motors representative.
When we first met, the Camaro’s lead exterior designer stretched out his arm to greet us through his creation’s narrow window opening, all you could make out was a mysterious figure accessorized by the rings on his outstretched fingers and the silhouette of a cap and the glare of sunglasses.
The person we got to know turned out to be a humble artist full of smiles who was much more eager to speak to us than the camera.
