Click above for high-res gallery of the Camaro's Melbourne reveal

While General Motors debuted the 2010 Chevy Camaro in Detroit and L.A. on Monday, they also gave it a proper debut in Australia where much of the car's development work was performed. The General just published some new pictures from the car's Melbourne debut in which the new Camaro poses for the camera with a second generation model, two third generation models, a fourth gen and a very cherry 1969 Camaro SS owned by reigning V8 Supercar champion Garth Tander. Those pics plus GM's own shots that were taken at the live reveal in Detroit have been added to the first gallery below, beneath which we've included our own updated gallery of live shots from the Detroit reveal that includes images of the car after it was driven outside.

      That thing looks like an old Interceptor. Mad Max is coming.

      ...Why are there two Gen 3s? I mean, I've always loved the styling of the third generation, but why are there two of them? That's a little weird.

      Whatever. Man, this thing looks badass. Sure wish I had some money.

      Love my Challenger and I should be tired of looking at this thing, but instead it seems to be growing on me. Guess I better go double wide shopping.

      This is the car that should have been the new KITT

      Great looking car, but it's interesting and a bit disappointing to see how needlessly big and slightly bloated it looks next to the original. Cars are just so fat and heavy nowadays. I wonder also if maintains the Camaro tradition of contender for most space inefficiency. The third and 4th gen F bodies were big fat coupes, and had ridiculously little interior space and trunks. I am impressed by the V6...
        • 6 Years Ago
        Uh, new cars are heavier because of all those nice safety features to keep you from dying. I like them.

        Also, all cars from the late seventies/early eighties were like that, emissions were choking them.
        • 6 Years Ago
        You are talking space efficiency in a muscle car? That's like dogging the Prius for its lack of towing capacity. That big sloping hood, etc come as the expense of practicality. If you want a practical Camaro go buy the G8 GXP.

        Camaro's big because its a fullsize car this time around (its wider than the G8). I really think they should have called something else as its too big to be a Camaro. It however WOULD have been a proper GTO.
        • 6 Years Ago
        That's a lame excuse and comparison. OK, so you have a big hood for that big engine, but it's still a long wide car. Look at the exterior dimensions of the greenhouse. What happens to the space in the passenger compartment? Volume is volume. I say since you're carrying it around, make it useful. Note I'm talking about the old Camaros, since I haven't sat in one of the new ones yet. Crickey, the third gen F-body didn't even have room for a proper glove box! How did they do that in a 16' long coupe? GM back then was almost as good as squeezing space out of their cars as horsepower:'82 Z-28 305 c.i., 145 whopping horsepower! Thankfully the new one doesn't suffer from that deficit at least.

        Yes, new cars are heavier due to increased safety structures, but size often equals weight. I love the new Camaro, but like all other Camaros except for the original, it should be 7/8ths of its actual size. It's too damn big and heavy, especially for anything sporting. In regards to the 'smog' era, in '82 Alfa Romeo managed 160 hp out of a 2.5 liter (about 150 c.i.), and Mercedes had similar horsepower out of a 2.8 liter. 145 hp out of a 5.0 liter Z-28 was pathetic. I have a vintage R&T or C&D where a Nissan Stanza 2.0 4 cylinder beat it to 60. Ouch!...

      D..oh! the 1969 Camaro looks better.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'm not a Chevrolet guy and would rather buy a Dodge first, then Ford second for a coupe/muscle car, but I wouldn't kick the Camaro out of bed, it's looking really hot.

      Chevy CAMARO: proudly copying the Ford Mustang for 40 years running!!!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Wow, the original Camaro was a copy of the Mustang. In 2004, Ford copied its original success. Now the Camaro is copying Ford and Copying its Copy.

        Looks and runs good, but its still just an imitator.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yeah, sucks to be Ford. The Mustang is always the slower and least powerful of the two in any given year of those 40.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Will it be RHD? No one answered my question.
      • 6 Years Ago
      As Iv'e read on other forums it's amazing how utterly terrible the other generations look with the new one and the timeless original. This is certainly how the Camaro (and Mustang) should have always looked.

      That's also our first real look at the SS. The differences visually are few but the SS has Brembo calipers, the hood scoop in the fascia, SS badges (not on the car Holden unveiled), and the exhaust tips are 3.7" on the SS vs 3" on the V6 car.

      Holden did the vast majority of work on this car and worked hard to ensure it would be world class inside and out, I think they did a terrific job.

      Thanks Aussies.
        • 6 Years Ago
        The SS has 9" wide wheels in the rear too. I can't really tell in these pictures though.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I've always liked the 3rd Gen cars and if I were ever to build a drag car a 3rd gen would be my choice (or possibly a RWD 80s Cutlass)
      • 6 Years Ago
      Let me know when it debuts at a Chevrolet dealer. Then I'll care.
      • 6 Years Ago
      It's a heavy car. Makes me like my Mustang more.
