Just yesterday, spy shots emerged of the next-generation Chevrolet Camaro testing in Germany. Now the car has been snapped testing on the Nurburgring for some hardcore testing.
Due to testing at the Nurburgring already commencing, it seems likely that the design of the new American muscle car has been signed off for production with focus now directed towards the dynamics of the car.
On the topic of the design, the following test mule is easy to distinguish from the current model. The front end is edgier and includes exceptionally narrow air intakes feeding the new engine which itself is covered by a new bonnet with a prominent power dome. The rear windshield and decklid has also been redesigned with this particularly prototype sporting a small rear spoiler as well. The car pictured also features quad exhaust pipes indicating that it could be the next-gen Camaro SS or ZL1.
Beyond the design, we know that the new Camaro will utilise the same Alpha architecture of the Cadillac CTS and ATS and ditch the current Zeta platform. Additionally, a 6.2-litre V8 will top out the range with a small 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder from both the ATS and CTS likely to act as the entry-level engine and a rival to the 2015 Ford Mustang’s 2.3-litre turbocharged EcoBoost engine.
