Chevrolet is preparing some hot cars for SEMA Auto Show. And hottest of all, is Chevy's Camaro. Chevrolet will be revealing 4 customized concepts of the Camaro.
Let us start first with the maddest of all, the Camaro LS7 Concept. It's inspired by the COPO Camaros of the late '60s. It features the GM Performance Parts LS7 Crate engine from the Corvette ZO6, but tuned to produce 550 horsepower thanks to a number of GMPP performance accessories. The awsome power is handled by a TREMEC 6-speed manual. To break all the power, you get Brembo breaks inside 20-inch custom wheels and a lowered ride height.
Next, the Camaro Dale Earnhardt Jr. Concept. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a NASCAR star, and he's a big fan of Camaros. So this customized version of the Camaro was to designed for him. It's a basic Camaro SS, tuned to run on higher-octane E85. The exterior is a two-toned black-over-white with a red line separating the two colors. You also get 21-inch five-spoke wheels, a dovetail spoiler, a new grill and other Chevy Accessories exterior mods.
For racing fans, this is the Camaro GS Racecar Concept. Back in the late '60s, One of the most iconic cars of the legendary Trans Am road racing series was the distinctive blue-and-yellow Camaro, which was to Mark Donohue. This is a modern interpretation of it. Which features, a carbon fiber hood, trunk lid, doors and fenders to keep weight down and is powered by a production LS3 V8 mated to a Tremec 6-speed. A 3-inch exhaust with Coast Fab mufflers, C&R racing aluminum radiator and coolers for the engine oil, transmission and differential round out the racing pedigree.
Finally, the beautiful Camaro Black Concept. This darkness of a car features a matte black hood, tinted glass, HID headlamps with red "halo rings", a darker grille, dark-tinted taillight lenses and the 21-inch wheels feature a darker finish. So it's meant to be evil. Sadly, unlike the others, this Camaro is powered by GM's 300-hp 3.6L V6.
So we got Pontiac's fantastic concepts and now this. You cannot believe how happy I am to see GM doing these stuff for a long time now, and they are still at it.
