It’s big news for NASCAR fans and marks the end of the Chevrolet SS’ racing career in the sport. The Chevrolet SS exited production earlier this year and its Holden VF Commodore cousin will cease to exist this coming October. So, with a new NASCAR racer, we have to ask: is it hot or not?
Chevrolet says it spent a lot of time ensuring the new NASCAR body mirrored the looks of the production Camaro ZL1. That includes a prominent front grille and headlight shapes that mimic the street car. As we said in our initial report, we think the brand succeeded. Sometimes, a vehicle’s looks are lost to NASCAR regulations, but there’s no denying this looks like a Camaro ZL1.
Fun fact, and for those of you wondering, the Camaro ZL1 NASCAR Cup car shown at the reveal wears the #8 because the figure was brand-founder Louis Chevrolet’s racing number.
