Having driven one, I can tell you that you do not notice the weight at all.

I've driven LX cars (Charger/Magnum/300), and they're pretty good at hiding their weight.
But Camaro feels much lighter.

I would compare the drive feel to about that of a C6.
Not quite as light feeling, but almost.
The tightness, acceleration, and handling are all right there though.
