Chevrolet teases rear-end. aluminum hood design of the 2016 Camaro
With nearly two weeks left before the eventual reveal of the 2016 Camaro, the ‘bow-tie’ brand has just released two new teaser images of the muscle car that showcases the design that went into the Camaro’s rear end and aluminum hood.
According to the automaker, the exterior design of the 2016 Camaro makes use of complex shapes that combines the best in hand and digital sculpting. Beyond that, the company also stated that the sixth-generation Camaro has a more toned look.
“The Camaro went to the gym and came out with a lithe, more athletic physique for the sixth generation. It’s a more expressive evolution of the Camaro’s iconic character – and one that complements its leaner size and sharper reflexes,” said Ed Welburn, Vice President, GM Global Design.
Starting from the rear, the upcoming muscle car still retains its distinct wide profile which consists of the thin taillight housings and the angular fenders. Another design update included in the 2016 Camaro according to Chevrolet is the subtle crease that runs parallel to the edge of the fender which gives the car a wider and lower profile while at the same time, provides a smaller tread than the outgoing model.
For the aluminum hood, Chevrolet claims that the hood has a ‘shrink-wrap’ effect around the engine as the smooth curves and sharp lines give the aforementioned illusion the automaker was vying for.
As previously reported, Chevrolet will debut the 2016 Camaro come May 16, 2015 during a special public event at Detroit’s Bell Isle Park.
