Virtual Design

The four-pack of gauges is a retro element that is included in the 2010 Camaro. The contemporary flair took a lot of time to design in the virtual world before getting it right. It is one of the highlights for Welburn & Dale Jr.

VIP Pass

Dale Earnhardt Jr., the ultimate test-driver, arrived at Holden's Proving Grounds in Lang Lang, Australia in style. He was meeting the 2010 Camaro for the first time and you could feel the excitement. Very few people get the opportunity to test drive a car at this stage of development.

Stuck In A Ditch

GM Global Vehicle Line Executive, Gene Stefanyshyn, gets in the dirt to change a tire after one driver on the test drive took it too wide. Gene joined GM Canada in 1976 and currently leads Camaros Australian-based engineering team that specializes in rear-wheel drive platforms.

All-Access Pass

CNBC was fortunate to have an all-access pass to see the development of this American icon. Spy photographers were hoping to catch just one shot of the camouflaged Camaro by hiding along the 1,300 mile test drive route through rural Australia.
