The 2008 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) has debuted the new 6.2L V-8 Camaro flexible fuel engine. The new Camaro is the Dale Earnhardt Jr. Concept, which was actually produced with input from Jr. himself.

According to 4WheelsNews, the base car is a Camaro SS tuned use the higher octane fuel, E85.

“The new Camaro is a 21st century sports car for the young and young at heart,” said Ed Peper, GM North America vice president, Chevrolet. “Wherever your automotive passion lies, the Camaro complements it with world-class design and an exciting driving experience. The concepts unveiled at SEMA accentuate those qualities and trigger the imaginations of countless enthusiasts.”

The exterior of the vehicle is a nostalgic gray-over-white paint scheme with 21-inch five-spoke wheels, a dovetail spoiler and other Chevy Accessories exterior modifications.

This is one thing that is holding me back for sure on buying a new Camaro. I bought my 07 Escalade and then the very next year all 08 models are flex fuel. I was hoping the Camaro would debut with flexfuel.

Yeah, I did on the Escalade, but it's much better to be OEM.

So far I haven't been able to convert the Escalade to Flex. Its just one way or the other. I have to change the tune to switch. That makes it a pita with E85 not being availible everywhere yet.
