2016 Camaro photos have leaked online ahead of the car’s official debut.

The car was shown on CNBC this morning completely uncovered and forum users on GM Inside News grabbed three screen shots, showing both the front and rear end of the new Chevy muscle car.

Many exact details are still unknown at this point, though Chevy has already dropped some info on the 2016 Camaro. It will offer a 6.2-liter V8, while a turbocharged four-cylinder is also rumored to be joining the ranks to compete with the new Mustang EcoBoost. We also know that the new Camaro will feature magnetic ride control suspension on the SS model, which will come with three selectable settings: tour, sport and track.

A dual-mode exhaust will also be an option on the car and will feature a number of settings. Choose track mode and additional flaps that bypass the mufflers during hard acceleration will open up to let that V8 roar, while stealth mode will also be an option to quiet the car down.

Handling is said to be improved thanks to a chassis that is 28 percent stiffer and 220-pounds lighter than the current car.

A few details on aerodynamic improvements have also been divulged, with Chevy saying that a new flush belly pan that stretches from the front of the car to the center of the vehicle has helped to reduce total lift by 30 percent.

We will have more 2016 Camaro photos when the car makes its official debut tomorrow, May 16, at a special event at Detroit’s Belle Isle.

    Regarding the interior, GM states: "All-new, driver-focused interior with intuitive controls, flat-bottom steering wheel, and high quality materials throughout."

    Stick to perfecting the Chevy Volt, GM. Clearly.. you don't know how to (re)design a muscle car. I can't foresee any revised interior that would win me over.
