Chevrolet teases 2016 Camaro's rear end, hood

The company promises a \"more athletic physique\" for the sixth-generation pony car.

General Motors has stepped up its teaser campaign for the next-generation Camaro, releasing two additional CAD renderings.

One of the latest images shows the trunk lid, rear window and C-pillar, along with the cutouts for the taillights. The spoiler and taillights have been reshaped, but the rear end appears to keep the same overall form as the current generation -- consistent with the camouflaged prototype that appeared in earlier teasers.

The redesigned coupe keeps the pronounced rear fenders that helped define the fifth-generation model, but with a higher level of detail. Designers have added a slight crease parallel to the fender edge, attempting to give the look of a wider stance despite the 2016 model's slightly smaller build.

The second shot highlights the creases and contours on the redesigned hood, which brings a much more complex and sculpted shape compared to the existing model.

"The Camaro went to the gym and came out with a lithe, more athletic physique for the sixth generation," said GM design VP Ed Welburn. "It's a more expressive evolution of the Camaro's iconic character - and one that complements its leaner size and sharper reflexes."

The company notes that the body shapes appear to be form-fitted around the mechanical components, designed through a combination of hand and digital sculpting.

The 2016 Camaro will make its formal debut at a public event in Detroit's Belle Isle Park on May 16.
