2010 SEMA Preview: Chevrolet Corvette Jake Edition Concept

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 1, 2010

Besides the Corvette Z06X Concept, Chevrolet will also bring at this year’s SEMA Show the Corvette Jake Edition Concept, a new special edition based on the Grand Sport convertible concept that celebrates Corvette's racing spirit.

So, the new Corvette Jake Edition is in fact a Grand Sport Coupe, with Z06 wheels featuring the Competition Gray finish.

A new visual statement is added by the matte Jake hood graphic from the GT1 commemorative model.

According to the manufacturer, most of the parts featured by this special Grand Sport are already available as Genuine Corvette Accessories or through any Chevrolet dealer's parts department.

But, some of the accessories used to create the Corvette Jake Concept are not available yet, and we are talking about Jake-logo floor mats, console lid, wheel center caps and more. The hood graphic and Z06 wheels, are offered as Genuine Corvette Accessories.

Some of the interior highlights include the ebony leather with titanium stitching and red accents on the seats, a Chevrolet Accessory interior trim kit, Chevrolet Accessory racing pedal kit, Chevrolet Accessory "Jake" floor mats (future) and the Chevrolet Accessory "Jake" console lid (future).

Under the hood, we find a LS3 6.2L V8 mated to a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission.

He started off as a discreet logo in 2005 that symbolized a tenacious attitude of the Corvette Racing team and ever since, the skull mascot known as Jake has grown to embody the determination and triumphs of the team. Now, Chevrolet designers have created the Corvette Jake Edition Concept, a special Grand Sport convertible concept vehicle that celebrates Corvette's racing spirit.

The Corvette Jake Edition is a Grand Sport Coupe, with Z06 wheels featuring the Competition Gray finish. The matte Jake hood graphic from the GT1 commemorative model adds a subtle visual statement, while a host of other accessories round out the car's unique appearance. Most of the parts added to this special Grand Sport are available today as Genuine Corvette Accessories or through any Chevrolet dealer's parts department.

"Jake is more than the mascot for Corvette Racing, he personifies the Corvette spirit," said Dave Ross, design manager. "We designed this concept to demonstrate how any enthusiast could create his own Jake special model with parts available from any Chevrolet dealership."

Some of the accessories used to create the Corvette Jake concept are not currently available, but are planned for future release, including Jake-logo floor mats, console lid, wheel center caps and more. Other parts, including the hood graphic and Z06 wheels, are offered as Genuine Corvette Accessories.

"The Corvette has long inspired car enthusiasts to personalize it. The Jake concept shows one very unique way to do it," said Ross. "With the great variety of accessories and other parts available, there's virtually no limit to how you can make your Corvette stand apart from all others."
