Shane van Gisbergen Chevrolet Racing Chevrolet Camaro Gen3 Supercar – 2021 Bathurst 1000 Launch Livery
The official launch of the Supercars Gen3 platform had been eagerly anticipated by motorsport fans across the country and at Mount Panorama, as part of the season ending 2021 Repco Bathurst 1000, fans finally got to see first hand what the future cars of Australia’s premier motorsport category would look like.
While various images and videos had been released of the new Gen3 Supercars in varying stages of development prior to their completion, this was the first time that the general public had seen the new breed of Supercar completed and on track.
Moving on from the Holden ZB Commodore platform, General Motors natural progression led to the two door Camaro to become its race car of choice for the future. With a preference from manufacturers to race 2 door sports cars, Supercars set about developing a new platform that was more suited to that style of body so the race cars would look more like their road going counterparts and would also be more efficient to build and repair.
Lowering the main roll cage hoop to achieve this was only one of a raft of changes made to the control chassis in the move from Gen2 to Gen3, which allows for more “OEM” style panels to be used on the cars. New engines are also a key feature of Gen3, with the Camaro upgrading to a race version of the 5.7 Litre Chevrolet LTR V8 after nearly 30 years of service from the existing power plant.
Authentic Collectables are very proud to present the Chevrolet Racing Camaro Gen3 Supercar driven by Shane van Gisbergen as part of the official launch at Mount Panorama on December 3, 2021. This is an officially licensed model by GM Australia and New Zealand, complete with Chevrolet Racing debut livery.
