Pics show off fresh styling bits

With the refreshed Camaro ZL1 on its way for the 2019 model year, we’ve been hoping to get a sneak peek at what’s in store. Now, we’re getting exactly that with a series of shots snapped by one eagle-eyed Bow Tie fan out of Nevada.

Funny enough, the testers are en route completely uncovered, revealing all the important styling bits we’ve been expecting.

These latest spy shots come courtesy of a recent thread posted to the muscle car enthusiast forum Camaro 6. They show the up-and-coming ‘Maro out in the Nevada desert, perched on a trailer, presumably on its way to some hot-weather test sessions on the track.

Funny enough, the testers are en route completely uncovered, revealing all the important styling bits we’ve been expecting. For example, the newly reshaped headlights, taillights, and wheels are all on display here in these shots.

One of the most important updates can be found on the trunk lid, where we see perched a new rear wing as well. This time around, the downforce-maker appears to be quite a bit lower and smaller than what we’ve seen before. Of course, we believe there will still be a high-rise wing available for those that need more rear-end stick and visual impact.

Look for a full official debut before the year’s end. Pricing should slot in at around $70,000.

The only thing we’re skeptical about are those oddly shaped taillight housings. Chevy might have an update for these planned before they go into full production, but either way, they’re looking a little funky on these testers.

Meanwhile, the oily bits should go unchanged. That includes a front-mounted supercharged 6.2-liter V-8, which is tuned to produce a whopping 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, all of which is sent to the rear wheels by way of six-speed manual transmission with an Active Rev Match feature. The run to 60 mph is completed in about 3.4 seconds, while the quarter mile is done in 11.3 seconds at 127 mph. Keep your foot in it, and the ZL1 will approach the 200-mph mark at the top end.
