On the back of announcing that the 500,000th example of the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro could be sold this month, a video showing the current Z/28 on the track was released. Of interest to us however is the fact that the clip shows a heavily disguised prototype of the sixth-generation Camaro testing on the Willow Springs Raceway.

Recently spied test mules including the one in the following video have debuted an edgier design including 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 featured in this clip also includes 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.
