"A special Camaro by GM designer Chuck Jordan."
The Camaro IROC-Z, looking like a one-off tuner car, in fact had a very interesting history. Around 1987, it was one of several test vehicles used in a variety of experiments. After that, it was taken to General Motors' design studio as a color sampling test car. Then the chief designer and vice president in charge of the main design at GM, Chuck Jordan, decided to experiment with this test car by applying the aerodynamic technology used in the Ferrari F40 to its body. The result is the Camaro IROC-Z Concept.
The basis for the car was the IROC-Z, a special edition Camaro that paid homage to the International Race of Champions (IROC). The car was first introduced in 1985, and became a fixture in the Camaro lineup for years to come. The IROC-Z Concept was visually distinguishable from the stock model by its bulging fenders and spoiler reminiscent of the Ferrari supercar, not to mention its flashy 18 inch wheels. The car also had a completely reupholstered interior that featured genuine high-grade Italian leather. This Camaro became a personal car for Jordan and a showpiece for the GM design studio, making an appearance at a variety of special events. Most test cars tended to be discarded once they outlived their usefulness, but the Camaro IROC-Z exists to this day, preserved at GM's custom automotive center.
