GM unveiled today at the 2010 SEMA Show the Chevrolet Camaro SSX Track Car, a new concept that transforms the street Camaro SS into a closed-course track car. The new concept also showcases new performance parts and has purposeful aesthetic, with exterior appointments and suspension modifications.
Some of the modifications include new carbon fiber aero parts, such as front splitter and adjustable rear wing, new lightweight carbon fiber body panels, revised lower grille and unique brake cooling ducts.
The carbon body panels are not the only additions that lower the car’s weight, as the manufacturer also removed the car’s sound-deadening material, carpeting and rear seat.
Just like the Corvette Z06X Concept, the Camaro SSX Track Car comes with a low-gloss Icy White Metallic exterior paint contrasted by the carbon aero parts, door graphics/racing number and red details. In addition, a new set of track wheels wrapped in high performance tires were installed.
With the Chevrolet Camaro SSX, Chris Perry of Chevrolet Marketing stated that the company is testing concept cars that carry both racing performance and safe handling in normal roads.
Perry, who is VP for Chevrolet marketing, also said that the SSX concept all but signals the start of Chevrolet’s efforts to bring performance parts to Chevrolet car owners who also happen to be aficionados for car racing.
