    Re: new Camaro website up

     better pic - very nice as digital displays go, easy to read and 4 separate analog displays angled at driver on the tranny tunnel, and they have ambient lighting strips like merc.

    Don't see what there is to complain about

    nice layout I only hope it is up to Challenger quality levels, won't know for sure until I sit in one.

    See this picture?

    This is why they are so cheap.

    This belongs to a $5k Kia.

    Enough said.

     

     

    Ferrari 612 Scaglietti  0-60 4.2; 60-0 105 ft   $300,000.00

    stock Camaro Z28      0-60 3.9; 60-0 105 ft   $50,000.00

    Some might say that's enough said

     

    And if GM sicks the same handling gurus on the Z28 as they put on the ZR1, then watch out. Pretty amazing when a chevy camaro the peoples car is kicking butt on some of europes elite and looking good and sounding great while doing it. GM and other US car companies may not be able to run the numbers side of the biz but they can make great cars if they want.

    This is a lesson to Detroit, make cars that look good and people will buy them. Because of factors like electric cars keeeping oil demand low as time goes on this could be the golden age of muscle cars as FORD is planning some big things for the Mustang!

     

    The center display also gives out onstar directions to the driver, not cheap imo. Anyways the whole reason for the excitment of this car are the looks. It looks great in person a true badass 60's muscle car look.

    Re: new Camaro website up

    The car looks great and the price is just a bargain! 

    Please give us more of those great US cars!


    Re: new Camaro website up

    this was on "human target" last night, they had a silver 1 on the week before and I saw 1 the other day. This is a great looking car, especially in the wilder colors with the decals. Funny that even ferrari is going with the decals more nowadays.

    So I had to watch a video today, Hennessey Camaro 3.7 0-60

    +1 major problem of most american producers. On the other hand side, the prices are very feasible!

    That goes into the silly bin. Kinda like going to McDonald's expecting validated parking, a fully stocked wine cellar, and a Sommelier. I have not sat in one yet but I hear it is very nice, so pictures may not do it justice. I have sat in a Dodge Challenger and have commented about that in the past. Amazingly comfortable and beautifully done leather seats.

    I was taking a walk yesterday evening and heard a great car sound, so I turn around to see what it is - a older 928 and even though not one of the best models or condition it sounded awesome and looked good. Just then a new Dodge Challenger came by the opposite direction, no contest sound or for exotic looks, because of the lowness of the 928.

     

     

    But still muscle cars are cool and the Camaro is way ahead of the challenger and mustang. It is the best new car design (non-hyper car) in a long time. The shape, the colors, the decals - Perfect. Even looks good in white. 

     


     

     


    Re: new Camaro website up

    @RacerX:

    Yep - I didnt want to offend anyone from the US.

    I love this car as I love the Corvette or any other strong US car. The issue we are talking about is, that driving an US car in Europe gives you a kind of "pimp" touch. If you are a serious business person, you would never drive with such a car to the client. This cars have a touch like a Ferrari - very pimp! Unfortunately people dont look on the price, design or shape of the car, they just see US car, good looking = equal to pimp. (of course I'm exhilarating a little bit, but this is the direction).

    And again - I love this car (but don't like this interior shot I was commenting to!)

     


    Re: new Camaro website up

    Man I love this car.  I don't care that it is based on our taxi (Holden Commodores), it is hot as hell!  When are they making the RHD version?  I have been waiting for awhile.  I sure hope they do given that this car was developed right at my door step in Melbourne!  When we raced at GM's local proving grounds (Lang Lang) last year, there were a fleet of these in camo.  I was told that they are waiting to be crushed as they were the developement engineering cars.


    Re: new Camaro website up

     One of the members of my club who has owned just about every expensive car and can buy anything he likes has been driving the Camaro. He loves it.  It provides great memories and present day performance at a terrific price.

    Re: new Camaro website up

    They are selling really really well it seems like. So far in town i've seen 5 different ones in various colors with nice options. Despite the dealer having closed due to the fact that their cars are inferior. What strikes me as funny is the in-house competition created. Apparently, most all camaro sales are at the expense of Covette sales. Doesn't sound good for the company. I'm not surprised though when you can get the same engine, good performance and fresh trendy looks as well as the Camaro name for cheaper than the same plastic Corvette....

    It still very much has that pimp or childish simply because it is BIG and seems plastic all around. The interior is much better but still somewhat off. IMO i think its a cool car as much as the Hummer or Mini, but not really serious enough to be really mainstream. I like the modern cut looks, but it falls short of being Beautiful.

    Don't forget that Corvette (C6) has been around since almost end of 2003.  People get tired of seeing the same thing over and over, hence sales goes down.

    Very true. Another point could be the state of the economy. People simply buying cheaper cars.

    Re: new Camaro website up

    C6 is an old car already and on the other hand, used Vettes prices are extremely low at the moment in the US. That is why it’s normal IMO, the fresher Camaro to has better sales at that moment.
    There are some rumors around, that due to the difficult situation on GM in recent months/years, the new C7 is already delayed, so inner competition isn’t a real problem at this moment…
    But back on the topic, this Camaro is really cool and I like it! American cars have different charisma and their own charm. They will never be so advanced, sophisticated and luxurious as the European top sport brands, but they can give many, many pleasant emotions and smiles on your face. I personally think that at that price every sports car enthusiast has to posses at least once in his life an American muscle…

    Re: new Camaro website up

    Saw some lately. An all red non-SS model yesterday. First time in person for that color.

    IMO, the best looking exterior shape/design of a new car that I have seen in person regardless of price. It's rare to look even better in person than in pictures.


    Re: new Camaro website up

    Instead of making new threads this will now be a Muscle car thread since the Camaro is the best ever muscle car imo all things considered.

     

    Just read about this- one of the most impressive engines Detroit ever built.

    The FORD 427 SOHC CAMMER engine

    "Ok, if you were to name the top ten engines Ford has built over the last forty years...Ok, ok, let's say the top five engines Ford has built in the last forty years, this one has to be on the list. You've got the Boss 302, Boss 429, the 427 "high riser", the 289/271 hp Windsor, but the real top dog of them all has to be the Single OverHead Cam 427. Usually referred to as the "Cammer", or the "SOHC (pronounced sock) motor", this is the baddest of the bad as far as production/race engines go, from Ford Motor Company, or anybody else for that matter.

    With a single four-barrel carburetor they were rated at 616 horsepower (459 kW) at 7,000 rpm & 515 ft lbs of torque @ 3,800 rpm, and while equipted with dual four-barrel carburetors they made 657 horsepower (490 kW) at 7,500 rpm & 575 ft/lbs of torque @ 4,200 rpm. Ford sold them via the parts counter, the single four-barrel model as part C6AE-6007-363S, the dual carburetor model as part C6AE-6007-359J for $2350.00 (as of October, 1968). Weight of the engine was 680 lb "

     

    rare engine, rare video's

    Listen to the power, this is a real CAMMER

     

     

    another Ford 427 but not a cammer in the BEST LOOKING and SOUNDING Ford Mustang I have ever seen (except it should have a shaker hood). This is how Ford should make the rear of the Mustang look today

    crap video but listen to this 427 rev


    Re: new Camaro website up

    Unlike Camaro, Challenger/Cuda looks are still better in the 60/70's than the remake and here is a great looking 1970 challenger

     

     


    Re: new Camaro website up

    Ahh, the sound track of my youth. That 427 sounds like a funny car

    Re: new Camaro website up

    Now this is what a muscle car sounds like - really sweet - rivals the mustang from above, sounds like it's growling, just wait for the Z28


    Re: new Camaro website up

    Great New commercial for the 2011 Mustang GT that has stepped up to match the Camaro and Challenger. Great engine and tranny with a stock H-pipe for the exhaust. Front looks good, but the back is still a little off.

    This is the best years for muscle car fans, these 3 cars are better than ever (Camaro, Mustang, Challenger) plus of course the vette is better than ever.

     

     

    another great commercial (even better) for the standard one

     


    Re: new Camaro website up

    Great front, great sound and power, needs a little help in back

     

     

    nice as a convertible though
