The all-new Chevrolet Camaro was unveiled in July at GM's Design Center, but until now the high-performance SS variant had remained unofficial - despite numerous official photos being released. The wait for the car's official confirmation is over, however, and as expected it will feature a stomping V8 and and the already well-known exterior upgrades. New interior shots reveal the car's dramatic and shiny elements, however.

Though the unveiling has yet to be officially noted on the company's website, and no official photos yet exist of the event or the car's interior, forum goers at Camaro5 have snapped some pictures of the event. Those photos reveal a dramatic interior design with a somewhat odd mix of shiny and matte surfaces. The sweeping expanses of what appears to be shiny red plastic in the doors and dash is complemented by red insets on the leather seating surfaces, both front and rear. The remainder of the car's interior looks identical to the standard vehicle, with only the red highlights marking it apart.

The event was a local Camaro club event hosted by GM, called the ' Central Indiana Camaro Club Enthusiast Event.'

The 2010 Camaro SS will feature a 6.2L LS3 V8 rated at 422hp (314kW) and 408lb-ft (553Nm) of torque in manual guise and the 6.2L L99 V8 is good for 400hp (299kW) and 395lb-ft (535Nm) of torque in automatic form. The transmissions fitted include the Hydra-Matic 6L80 automatic six-speed unit and a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual.

Oddly, the SS is also the heaviest of the new Camaros, weighing in at 3,913lb (1,779kg) when equipped with the slushbox. Nevertheless, it's expected to be good for sub-5.0 second 0-60mph (96km/h) runs and reasonably good handling thanks to its modern independent rear suspension design.
