GM's most extreme Camaro variant spied in testing at the Nurburgring
8 October 2010

General Motors is stepping up development of its most extreme Camaro variant yet at the Nurburgring.

The long-rumoured Camaro Z28 captured by our spy photographers reveals a range of muscular styling upgrades over the standard Camaro range, including a large front air intake an a new lip spoiler.

Although not pictured, our photographer claims the Z28 test mule also had some body-coloured tape on the boot lid disguising mounting points for a fixed rear spoiler. The test car’s ducktail spoiler is expected to make way for the fixed rear spoiler in final production guise.

The test car is also sporting 20-inch alloys wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tyres, larger brakes taken from the Cadillac CTS-V and a quad exhaust system.

Our Verdict

Chevrolet Camaro muscle car

It’s now on sale officially in the UK, so would you want to buy one?

Sorry, as fabulous as this car may be, American cars should stay in America,if they can't be bothered to put the wheel on the side their importing, then most people are going to be put of,and especially when you consider the fact when it gets to these shores it's double the price!,and what with the advent of hybrid power and electric cars, the 0-60 isn't going to be a wow factor anymore even if you like the noise a ballsy V-8 spits out it's exhaust! .

Speak for yourself! I don't think it's intended to appeal to the Prius-driving tree-huggers.... Personally, I don't find batteries and electric motors to be a wow factor...

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4

    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3

    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
