After more than a year of extensive R&D and prototyping, G5Concepts is proud to introduce the first and only period correct Hidden Headlight Grille for the Chevrolet Camaro: The Chimera Grille.
Carefully developed with the input of more than a thousand Camaro enthusiasts, the Chimera Grille pays respect to the 1st Generation Chevy Camaro lineage (1967-1969) with a tastefully conservative design with headlight doors that retract toward the center of the grille using a smooth proprietary flexible linear drive solution. The retraction system is built robustly with OEM spec Aluminum, Stainless Steel and High Impact ABS components as well as custom specified LED DRL’s and Sequential Turn Signals. The lumen output on the signals and DRL’s rivals most OEM specifications utilizing a high powered 5050 LED array custom designed for this application.
Additionally, the installation requires no major modification, cutting, drilling, scoring, hacking, splicing or damage to your factory Camaro bumper, making this mod 100% reversible should you ever do the unthinkable and decide to part with your 5th Gen. Competitively priced for Camaro enthusiasts, the Chimera Hidden Headlight Grille starts at $1,697, well below many other grille options.

In January 2013, the Chimera Grille was chosen by Performance Tuner Black Knight Performance Engineering (BKPE) for their flagship 1200hp Camaro known as the “G5 Reaper” and offers a modern take on the old school look, while enhancing the car with appearance and performance mods. This formidable beast is any nostalgic muscle car lover’s dream come true. To find out more information on the BKPE G5 Reaper visit: http://www.bkpe.com/camaro/g5camaro-reaper.html.
