Slammed vehicles, with their road-hugging stance, are usually not welcomed from the functional point of view. However, slammed vehicles are a sight to behold from the design point of view. Currently in Las Vegas, Nevada, Chevrolet is featuring a slammed version of its Gen 6 Camaro – the 2017 Camaro SS Slammer Concept.
Wrapped in Dazzling Black exterior, the 2017 Camaro SS Slammer concept at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (2016 SEMA Show) show dons a road-hugging stance, several exclusive custom elements and a number of expressive details.
The modified Camaro’s low and slammed stance is helped by the fact that it features an air-adjustable suspension and rides on custom 22-inch front and 24-inch rear chrome wheels wrapped in large 245/30R22 wheels in front and 275/25R24 in the rear.
Its expressive looks are brought by the tinted lenses on its headlamps and taillamps. Of course, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS Slammer concept is laden with many Chevrolet Accessories, like a ground effects kit, Camaro fender badges and black bowtie emblems.
Perfectly complementing the dark exterior of the 2017 Camaro SS Slammer Concept is its Adrenaline Red interior color, which can be seen dominantly on the cabin’s upper section (painted or trimmed) and on the instrument panel. In addition, the leather-trimmed seats of the 2017 Camaro SS Slammer concept are also specified in Adrenaline Red.
As for its core, the 2017 Camaro SS Slammer concept is powered by the LT1 6.2L V8 engine that could provide 455 horsepower of max output and 455 lb.-ft. of peak torque. This V8 engine is paired to a six-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Match. Engine breathing and audio are enhanced by an axle-back, stainless steel exhaust system with polished four-inch tips from Chevrolet Performance that could cut backpressure by up to 25 percent over the stock system.
Models fitted with the Bose audio system comes with an Active Noise Cancellation calibration that allows for loud and clear exhaust roar while getting rid of unnecessary drone. A Chevrolet Performance Brembo front brake kit takes care of stopping power.
The 2017 Camaro SS Slammer concept shown at the 2016 SEMA Show also features custom-painted Chevrolet Performance engine cover and custom close-outs in the engine compartment panels.
According to John Cafaro, executive director at Global Chevrolet Design, quipped that the Camaro SS Slammer concept is a design exercise aimed at taking the proportions of the Gen 6 Camaro to the extreme. He added the 2017 Camaro SS Slammer concept is designed to evoke reactions and inspire personalization. Camaro owners who wanted to personalize their rides could avail from a wide array of styling accessories and performance parts from Chevrolet.
