With a purported debut date at this year's New York Auto Show in April, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has been a recurring subject on forums all over the world. After a gentlemen spent three days near a pre-production prototype of the sixth generation 'Maro and somebody listed a 2016 Camaro headlight on eBay, look what the cat dragged in – the body die.

Apparently, a gentleman uploaded the photo above on Facebook with the message "I'll sell ya an entire 2016 Camaro body side if ya want since I built the die.." and forum member GM ACE uploaded it on Camaro6. Well, we are sure thankful for the visual delight, but someone might get in trouble for exposing the new generation before GM unveils it in April or later.

Comparing what the body shell die shows us to our extensive coverage of 2016 Chevy Camaro spy photographs, renderings and miscellaneous intel like the 3,695 lbs (1,676 kg) weight estimate of the SS, it's easy to see that this is the real deal, not a side body panel of the fifth generation of the iconic muscle car.

It is the first time we can have a proper look at the rear quarter window, rear fender and shoulder line, as well as the roofline and door shape. I especially dig the tapered angle of the roofline, flowing towards the rear of the vehicle, as well as the smaller rear quarter window and the bulging rear fender. On the real thing, these aesthetic will add up to a wider, more aggressively styled car than every other Camaro generation.

Furthermore, the crease above the wheel arch is gone, together with the side gills, while the distance between the upper character line and the quarter window has been slightly modified as well together with the radius. I know that opinions are biased, but I believe that what designers did with the 2016 MY is miles better than what we were given with the current model.

As a brief reminder, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro rides on the GM Alpha platform and will be propelled by three engines at first: an entry-level 2.0-liter twin-turbo four-banger, an uprated mid-range V6 and an LT1 small-block V8 blunderbuss lifted from the Corvette Stingray. At least one version of the new generation will have trick magnetorheological suspension, while the 8L90 eight-speed automatic is also in the cards.
