Every year, the automotive industry’s brightest minds and products come together at the premier automotive specialty products trade show: the SEMA Show, which takes place Nov. 1-4, 2011, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. So what does Chevrolet have in store for this year’s exciting event? They, of course, are not offering full details, but recently gave some very impressive sneak previews, including the Sonic, as well as new concept models of the Camaro.
Sonic is one small car that will have a big presence at the SEMA Show. It will be dressed to impress in Z-Spec, unique dealer-installed parts and accessories that allow customers to personalize their new vehicles and roll the cost into their monthly payments.
Sonic Z-Spec #1 is a turbocharged five-door in Torch Red, outfitted with new Z-Spec 18-inch wheels, ground effects, spoiler, grille and graphics. The Cobalt Red cabin features custom trimming, including perforated black sueded microfiber seat inserts, a Z-Spec sport pedal kit, sport shift knob and a racing-style flat-bottom steering wheel. Performance upgrades include Brembo® brakes with four-piston calipers, a Borla® high-flow exhaust system and Pedders suspension parts.
Sonic Z-Spec #2 is Flat White with Torch Red accents. It builds on Gen 2 Z-Spec accessories with a more aggressive ground effects, but still uses Z-Spec parts available through Chevrolet dealers, including the grille, rear spoiler and graphics. It rides on new Z-Spec 18-inch wheels. The re-trimmed interior features a Z-Spec sport pedal kit, sport shift knob and flat-bottom steering wheel. It also has custom racing seats with the Z-Spec logo. It’s powered by a turbo 1.4L engine and 6-speed manual transmission. Performance upgrades include Brembo brakes with four-piston calipers, a Borla high-flow exhaust system and Pedders suspension parts.
The 1LE Camaro Concept is bringing back the performance option code from the past—and it’s all about the track. From its 6-piston Brembo® brakes to its lightweight wheels and unique performance suspension, the 1LE Camaro Concept is ready to live up to its deep racing heritage. A flat black hood with hash mark extensions gives it an aggressive look while dual tips, active exhaust and diffuser make it ready to run.
The Camaro ZL1 Carbon Concept shows off a darker side with all the raw power and performance you’d expect from the most powerful Camaro ever produced, but with an added layer of carbon fiber. This concept also features new Ashen Gray exterior paint (available on 2012 model year Camaro vehicles) and the actual production front-end grille of the ZL1 that will hit showrooms early next yea
