Camaro fans can rejoice--preproduction prototypes of the reborn sports car have been stripped of their disguises on the orders of GM product guru Bob Lutz.
In a posting on the GM Fastlane Blog (Detroit Auto News - Auto Industry News from the GM FastLane Blog and Bob Lutz
), Chevy General Manager Ed Peper said the coverings were taken off so engineers can get better readings from aerodynamic and cooling testing.
To celebrate, GM released an official photo of a naked Camaro prototype. It also encouraged fans to keep an eye out for the prototypes being tested on public roads.
The 2009 Camaro is set to begin production late this year, with cars going on sale early next year. The price? Still anybody's guess.
