After we saw the Jay Leno Camaro, another vehicle was unveiled today at the SEMA Show: the Camaro Synergy Concept. Why Synergy? Well, according to the manufacturer, the concept previews a new Synergy Green production exterior color that will be offered on a special-edition Camaro in the first half of 2010.
The concept also features the latest Camaro accessories offered through Chevy dealers which can improve the performance appearance of the car, demonstrating the personalization possibilities open to Camaro owners.
Synergy Concept comes with Cyber Grey Rally hood stripes and a new ground effects kit consisting of a pronounced rocker moldings, a rear diffuser-type styling piece, a front spoiler, a new rear bumper with integrated exhaust system and a rear wing spoiler.
The rear wing spoiler and rally stripes, are finished in the production Cyber Grey color, but the ground effects and spoiler can be painted to match the exterior of the car. The Rally stripes are adhesive-backed and are offered in grey, black or white. The kit is completed by the 21-inch wheels, with a black center finish and polished rim.
The concept was further enhanced with a Pedders coil-over lowering kit and a set of large, Brembo brakes, as well as color-coordinating the Jet Black interior with Synergy Green accent stitching, piping and other accents.
The lowering kit, brakes and interior accents are not among the accessories offered for the Camaro but, according to the manufacturer, these represent common and popular aftermarket upgrades.
Featuring a design nearly similar to the original concept, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro pays tribute to the first-generation model, which was built from 1967 through 1969. In terms of dimensions, the two-door sports coupe measures 190.4 inches (4,836 mm) in overall length, 75.5 inches (1,918 mm) in width and 54.2 inches (1,376 mm) in height, as well as 112.3 inches (2,852 mm) of wheelbase.
Moreover, the new Camaro features long bonnet and short deck that are both pushed to the corners of the muscular fender forms. Its fast, 67-degree rake windshield help the Camaro achieve a low coefficient of drag value of 0.37 Cd on V6 models and 0.35 Cd on the V8-powered SS model.
Chevrolet ensured that the relationship between the top of the tire and bottom of the fender is consistent on all models by paying special attention to the wheel arch openings. All Camaro models boast of the classic "V" design motif in the nose as well as along with a 2.5-inch (63.5 mm) powerdome on the aluminum bonnet. SS models feature a simulated air intake in the upper front fascia as well as a larger lower air intake.
The new Chevrolet Camaro boasts of Corvette-inspired twin cockpits for a more distinctive Chevrolet presence on the road. Interestingly, the B-pillar -- designed to help increase the car’s structural rigidity -- seems invisible to the eye, making the Camaro look like a true hardtop coupe. To ensure quality in the manufacturing process, a one-piece body stamping allows for a cleaner side appearance free from gaps, seams and plastic appliques. The Camaro also features gills on front of the rear quarter panel.
Customers could have their Camaro units wrapped in any of the 10 available exterior colors: Aqua Blue Metallic, Black, Cyber Gray Metallic, Imperial Blue Metallic, Inferno Orange Metallic, Rally Yellow, Red Jewel Tintcoat, Silver Ice Metallic, Victory Red and White.
