Anticipating Chevrolet to bring out several examples of the latest Camaro to the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas was a given – we wouldn’t have expected anything less. Even though many enthusiasts who’ve ordered their car weeks or even months ago and continue to receive news on the progression of their build, Chevrolet Performance has plenty of pre-production and mule vehicles to source from – including these two featured here.
Dubbed the Black and Red Accent Concepts, these two Camaro renderings will give us a sneak peek of what we can expect from Chevrolet in the future.
2016 Camaro SS Concepts Designed to Inspire
DETROIT – Chevrolet introduced two customized 2016 Camaro SS concepts that illustrate the possibilities enabled by the new portfolio of Gen Six Camaro accessories and performance parts.
Dubbed Red Accent and Black Accent for their respective design themes, each uses components Chevrolet will offer during the first model year of the new Camaro.
“These are great-looking examples of what customers can do to personalize their new Gen Six Camaro,” said Roger McCormack, director, Accessories & Performance Parts Marketing. “This will be the largest-ever portfolio of Camaro accessories and performance parts. The possibilities are limited only by imagination.”
The new portfolio of Camaro accessories and performance parts includes:
- Three aluminum wheel designs, in multiple finishes
- Grille kits with six body-color inserts for LT and SS models; inserts are also available in chrome-appearance or primed versions for custom painting
- A blade-style rear spoiler and ground effects kit, each offered in 10 colors
- Four exterior graphics packages, offered in multiple colors, including,” rally stripe,” front-fender “hash mark,” racing stripe designs and a body-side “spear” graphic
- Interior trim kits, including knee pads and door accent trim, offered in multiple colors
- Performance exhaust kits for SS and V-6-equipped LT models (not compatible with the dual-mode exhaust system)
- Suspension lowering kits for SS and LT models (not compatible with SS models equipped with available Magnetic Ride Control)
- Brembo performance front brake packages for SS and LT models
- Performance air intake kit for the SS
- Engine covers for SS and V-6-equipped LT models.
Customers can view many of the accessories on the new Camaro using the online Camaro Visualizer.
“All of the exterior accessories enhance the Camaro’s already strong design, as they were developed in the Chevrolet Performance Studio alongside the production model itself,” said Adam Barry, senior creative designer, Chevrolet Camaro. “That means customers can personalize their new Gen Six Camaro with parts that are styled, engineered and aero-tested by the same team that designed the car.”
Camaro SS Red Accent Package Concept
The adage less is more applies to this tasteful-yet-dynamic Camaro SS convertible. Its Switchblade Silver Metallic exterior is accented with red accessory trim and complemented by an Adrenaline Red leather-trimmed interior.
The exterior accessories include a lower grille with red inserts, red “hash mark” fender graphics, black bowtie emblems and 20-inch 5-Spoke Gloss Black wheels with Red Outline Stripe. Under the hood is a red-accented engine cover.
The cabin features an interior illumination kit with red aluminum door inserts, knee pads in red, sport pedal covers, and premium SS-logo carpeted floor mats and center console cover.
In addition to the Red Accent appearance enhancements, Chevrolet included several integrated performance kits including lowered suspension, air intake and Brembo front brakes with six-piston calipers.
Camaro SS Black Accent Package Concept
The Red Hot Camaro SS coupe with an added Black Accent package creates a decidedly more “tuner” aesthetic. The aggressive design uses black ground effects, darkened taillamps, satin black rally stripes, black bowtie emblems and black 20-inch 5 Split Spoke Low Gloss Black Wheels. There’s also a concept black fuel door cover.
The performance suspension lowering kit and Brembo front brake package – with red calipers – completes the street-smart stance of the Camaro. Under the hood is the new performance air intake and a red accented engine cover.
The Jet Black leather-trimmed interior is personalized with black interior trim and knee pads, SS-logo premium carpeted floor mats, a suede console lid with the Chevrolet Performance logo and red stitching, and sport pedal covers.
The Red Accent and Black Accent Camaro SS concepts will be displayed at the 2015 SEMA Show, in Las Vegas, along with more than 20 Chevrolet vehicles with production and concept accessories and performance parts.
