GM Chairman Bob Lutz has ordered the Camaro pre-production fleet to drop their camouflage in the interests of improved testing. Bob is obviously under no illusion that we?ve seen it all before, with the production Camaro looking little different to the concept.
Ed Peper (GM Boss) made the announcement on GM?s Fastlane Blog earlier this week and indicated that the camo was interfering with the Camaro?s cooling and aerodynamics. Along with the announcement that the camo would be dropped, GM released the first official image of a pre-production Camaro (above) but don?t expect the full production version to be any different.
Ed Peper also confirmed that the Camaro would continue to be tested in Australia, so keep an eye out for the non-camo?d Camaro on our roads. Spotting a right-hand-drive test mule would go a long way to confirming the speculation that the Camaro will be sold in Australia. Of course, the main reason for testing taking place in Oz is the fact that the Camaro is based on the same rear-wheel-drive ?Zeta? platform as the VE Commodore.
