Caught on two separate occasions, and in two distinct color schemes, the new Camaro SS looks to be more performance oriented than the last generation. The car has been pinched, tightened, and put on a diet to reduce the overall mass. This was primarily done by using the ATS-derived Alpha Platform, which uses many aluminum components to reduce weight. The lighter chassis, in conjunction with the new the 455-horsepower LT1 V8 (out of the C7 Corvette Stingray), all adds up to what will likely be an amazing performance car.
The first Camaro SS was caught in a yellow and black paint scheme that is reminiscent of Bumblebee from Transformers. As you can see, the wheels, front fascia, and hood vents have all been blacked out to give the car a very ominous appeal. Spotted at the 11th Annual Michigan F-Body Meet & Greet, the new Camaro was joined by its sibling, the ATS-V sedan.
The second sighting was from the 24th Annual Camaro Superfest show in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The SS there was a similar crimson-red to the current Camaro’s Red Rock color. Additionally, while the yellow and black SS was equipped with a manual transmission, the red Camaro had an automatic and a moon roof. Furthermore, the new red Camaro had a set of silver wheels.
Camaro fans won’t have to wait too much longer to get their hands on the new car. Due out this fall, Chevy is prepping the new Camaro for both the sales and speed war it is about to enter between it and the new Mustang. Unlike real wars though, no matter which side you choose, you’ll be a winner.
