Click here to read about Mr Lutz's visit to Australia and his first drive of the Camaro production prototype:

I was actually lucky enough to drive the car Bob drove - it was probably my carrier highlight so far!

What an honor for Bob Lutz to say such wonderful things about the passion of the people at GM Holden...he really is a legend of the industry!

Where is this video?

http://www.autoblog.com/2007/10/12/lutz-from-oz-camaro-as-awesome-as-the-concept/

He describes the interior as being "remarkable" as well. We recently saw a GM video put together by the design group, in which a simulation of the Camaro startup process is shown from inside the car's passenger cabin. (It was not an actual car, but a super-high-quality computer simulation). If the interior shown in that video is indeed what's in store for the production Camaro, Lutz's use of "remarkable" is not at all out of line, and we'll all be yammering about it endlessly come January.

Looks like there are potential greatness in the works. Let's hope GM speeds things up a little before fuel prices, fuel mileage standards, or the economy kills them before they see the light of day.

Do you think this means anything?


Twisting the key produced a muted rumble from the big V8. We pulled away smoothly in the first cog of the new, slick, six-speed manual. Depressing the accelerator shifted the world into fast forward, with three or four more quick upshifts. The car had just been completed and had had no tuning or finessing. But I loved the response, the sound, the steering and the brakes. There's more work to be done, for sure, and the group knows it. They still have time for further development. The goal of the team led by Gene Stefanyshyn is to produce the finest car in its class, ever. Do I think they will get there? I wouldn't bet against that team!
