The back end of the Chevy Camaro WTCC safety car

2014 Chevrolet Camaro taillights revealed in new video?

We recently took a look at the introduction of the Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe to the World Touring Car Championship, but upon closer investigation, it appears that the Camaro used as the Safety Car overseas features some unique taillights – possibly giving us a look at the taillight design of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro?

The video showcasing the Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe as the official safety car for the 2012 World Touring Car Championship offers only a few scant glances at the rear end of the American muscle car but in those quick glimpse – there is no question that this car does not have the same taillights as the current production Camaro SS Coupe in the US.

The taillights on every production level Chevrolet Camaro sold in the US since the Camaro was reintroduced for the 2010 model year feature two separate solid red lenses on each side with the lower rear fascia cutting up between the lights on each side to punctuate the divided design.

Thos tailights are actually standard on all European Camaros, I have them on mine, though I prefer the original Two-lens design better!
Yeah those have been on the Euro spec version for years. Why are you guys in the press business if you can't even be bothered to do the research required? Seriously. Those taillights are nothing new. This isn't some super-secret tongue-in-cheek unveiling. Didn't you also notice the huge, ugly minivan mirrors that thing has? Yeah. That's the Euro version. And since WTCC is a European competition, I would expect them to use the Euro spec Camaro, no? *massive eye roll*
I couldn't agree with you more. How can a group claiming to be "automotive press" not do a simple thread search, to just see if this something new or useful? This would be like writing a story, in 1998, on spotting a 4th Gen Camaro in Canada and reporting that Chevy is going to install huge reflectors on the rear bumpers in '99.
You're both assholes - typical moronic Camaro5 members. The person who wrote this said in the article that these are European taillights and he questions whether they could be used in American models in the future or if they will keep offering different tail lights for American and Euro models.
Wow, someone is bleeding from their vagina. Calm down. The only reason they use these style taillights in European markets is because the road legal requirements are different. It's the same reason they have to use huge mirrors off a school bus. Also, way to necro a dead thread bro. XD
So, Forgedreality, looks like I hit the nail on the head with the European designed tailights?
With an expensive car like this, you'd think they'd make 35w HID reverse lights standard, maybe with LED at first while the HID takes 20 seconds to reach max brightness. But no, the safety organizations won't allow this without $500 in 'leveling hardware' and other crap. Yay for modding and cheap HID kits
Wow. Way to be illegal, dumb shit. Are you one of these guys who puts xenon bulbs in your incandescent fixtures and fucking blinds people on the road? Every time I see that stupid crap, I want to fucking shoot the person's headlights out first, and then the person's brains for endangering me. There is a reason HID headlights come with leveling systems and/or cutoffs. Doing the cheap made in China garbage on your Honda makes you look like a huge fucking douche, and you are a danger to other drivers on the road. I hope it gets you hit in a head-on. >:[
REVERSE HID lights in the stock tail light housings that light up when backing up! So you can see when you back up. You'll think of my comment when one day you run over a bike or something because there isn't enough illumination back there. 2x 20 watt incandescent bulbs isn't enough.
Um.. The backup lights on my Camaro SS are bright as hell. I don't know what you're talking about. They light up behind me just fine. However, the purpose isn't to light up behind you so much as to let people know you're backing up. But hey, go ahead and blind them too while you're at it right? Genius. Also, there are proximity sensors in the rear bumper. You're not going to run over a cyclist.
