The latest set of taster images of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro were presented today on the CamaroSix website, this time around showing us just what appears to be the front brake setup of the new Camaro SS and also a set of sharp looking wheels that I would think are additionally part of the SS bundle.
2016 Camaro SS Wheels and Brake
Far, General Motors has shown off a handful of photos of 2016 Camaro elements, including the skeleton of the dash, the brand-new exhaust manifolds for the LT1 V8, the body as well as some suspension elements, however the most recent set of intros gives us a far better suggestion of what the 6th gen Camaro will look like on the exterior. Surprisingly, today’s press release going along with the images of the 2016 Camaro wheels and brakes certainly does not actually connect to the brakes and wheels, yet it does provide some vital info on the new GM muscular tissue auto.
Stronger, Lighter, More Responsive
The latest statement from GM on the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro includes the description of Stronger, Lighter and also A lot more Responsive in the title, providing some brand-new specifics on the framework of the 6th gen F-body. Just before ever building a model test car, the GM design group invested more than 9 million hrs working with computer versions, making the vehicle as excellent as they might in the virtual global prior to trying to build the next generation Camaro in the genuine world.
“The modeling abilities of computer system assisted engineering are progressing at astonishing rates,” said Jim Karlavage, Camaro program engineering supervisor. “Today, we could precisely model opportunities to add torsional stamina without including unnecessary mass. The outcome is a lighter, stiffer structure that benefits every aspect of the driving encounter.”.
The Wheels and Brakes
The graphics going along with today’s statement show a quite nicely styled car wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, which I would certainly think are either Camaro SS wheels or optional wheels for the Camaro LT, such as an RS package wheel. The tires are tailed flawlessly to stop us from seeing exactly what dimension these wheels are, however they look like a 20 inch wheel to me– and also a very good looking one.
The brake caliper and blades are from Brembo, and this high performance brake system looks extremely much like what is located on the current Camaro SS, so I would expect that this setup will certainly additionally be discovered on the 2016 Camaro SS. It looks quite like the current brake arrangement, but I envision that it has been boosted somehow, even if it is something as easy as a small weight decrease in the braking setting up.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will certainly meet the world on May 16th in Detroit, but we can expect more tasters from the automaker on April 20th, April 30th and also May 11th.
