SUPERCARS has revealed the first proper look at the category’s Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang Gen3 prototypes.

The two category-owned prototype cars have been shown at the headquarters of their respective builders, Triple Eight and Dick Johnson Racing, in a Repco ‘Gen3 unpacked’ video on social media.

While previously released images revealed only the basic control chassis, the two cars are shown in the process of being fitted with bodywork depicting the Camaro and Mustang.

It’s the first ever glimpse of a Camaro Supercar; the car that will take over from the Holden Commodore as the General Motors representative on the grid.

The Gen3 Mustang meanwhile enjoys a significantly sleeker look than the Gen2 version, thanks to a lower control roll cage hoop intended to better accommodate the road going dimensions of the two-door vehicles.

Both cars are set to be publicly unveiled at the Repco Bathurst 1000 on Friday, December 3, despite the introduction of the Gen3 rules having been postponed until 2023.

The cars are fitted with new engines, as the category replaces its long-held bespoke motors in favour of road-based powerplants from Ford (5.4-litre) and GM (5.7-litre).
