Spotted: Camaro Z28 Testing Against GT500!

HERE are the newest photos of the Camaro Z28 test mule being tested and directly evaluated against a Mustang GT500.

GM is making no secret of the benchmark they are attempting to clear — the 2010 Ford Mustang GT500. This should help put to rest some doubts as to whether this test mule is indeed the range topping Camaro Z28 model expected to be GM’s answer to the Mustang GT500.

This latest sighting come on the heels of last week’s spotting of the Camaro Z28 test mule.

Shedding any doubt to the identity of a recently spotted Chevrolet Camaro prototype, our spies have just snapped images of the mighty Camaro Z28 testing alongside its closest competition – the Ford Shelby GT500.

In May, Leftlane reported that Chevrolet would be bringing an updated and improved interior for the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, but we also reported that the Z28 was definitely approved to go into production featuring a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 – the same engine from the Cadillac CTS-V, meaning output will likely be at least 556 horsepower.

Now our spies have images of this model in testing, wearing only moderate camouflage, but with a revealing shot confirming the ultra high-output drivetrain under the hood. The spies reported that the exhaust from the test model was “nothing short of unholy.” At the rear we can see a monster set of dual pipes on either side. There are also subtle changes to the rocker panels as well as the lower-rear fascia.

From the spy photos it is clear that the Z28 will come with a heavy-duty brake package, as well as high-performance ultra-wide Goodyear Eagle F1 tires wrapped around a set of 20-inch wheels. The doors are also bearing a bit of joke from the GM engineers with a NASCAR-like “2″ decal, likely a suggestive joke about the car’s near-racecar-like performance.
