Building the Camaro Concept

Chevrolet has released this photo gallery of the Camaro Concept development. The new Camaro, shown above next to the '69 Camaro SS of Ed Welburn, GM VP Global Design, was arguably the hit of the Detroit Auto Show, and by any measure a home run for Chevrolet.

The full-sized clay model being built at the GM Design Center in Warren, Michigan. Computer numerically-controlled machines are used to transfer the shape from the computer design files to the clay model, but extensive hand-sculpting is still required to bring the shape to life.
