What about A....

I was thinkg about this, what about a version in the new camaro that could be called the NHRA camaro. Something like the firebird edition that was done in late 4th gens. They way they should do it is to make the car a strippy, most powerful engine with like no options that have weight.

GM tried that with the original C5 Z06 Corvette, it was supposed to be a base level, cloth interior performance version, by the time it was done it was fully optioned

Its a cool idea but there's no money in stripper model cars. Yeah the racers want them, but nobody else does. The C5 FRC proved that...sales sucked until they transformed it into the Z06. And guess what? That Z06 was certainly not a no-options stripper.

The FRC C5 was just another Corvetter powertrain, nothing special over the hatchback and the convertible. Had they offered the stripped down Z06, that would have given the Camaro guys something to head for instead of abandoning them all together
