SEMA 2010 officially kicks off tomorrow, but General Motors has revealed a slew of vehicles set to be unwrapped on the Vegas show floor. Just like last year, we expect to find a large number of modified Camaros, but Chevy is beating them all to the punch and previewing four in-house mod jobs ahead of the show.

Chevrolet has decided to appeal to a wide range of potential Camaro consumers. A V6 appearance package, a super-showy V8, a Synergy special edition Camaro and a concept track version have all been produced for the SEMA floor. Hop the jump to see what each one looks like, as well as what makes them special.

2011 Chevrolet Camaro Red Flash Show Car

The Red Flash Camaro is, in essence, the opposite of a "sleeper." It's designed to show people that the Camaro is a sports car and it does it both visibly and audibly. The coupe wears a Red Jewel paint scheme with gray heritage stripes down the center, while the sound experience is kicked up a notch thanks to an air intake kit and an accessory exhaust kit.

2011 Chevrolet Camaro SSX Track Car Concept

The SSX Track Car Concept takes a standard production Camaro SS and turns it into a track-ready sports car. Carbon fiber panels and the removal of the radio, sound deadener and carpet drop the weight, while inside you'll find an SCCA-approved roll cage, racing harness and a fuel cell – everything you need to hit the track.

2011 Chevrolet Camaro XM/Accessory Appearance Package

Not every SEMA Camaro needs to have the LS3 V8 under the hood, and the XM/Accessory Appearance Package car opts for the direct-injection V6 unit in its place, with 312 horsepower returning 29 miles per gallon on the highway and a one-year subscription to XM Satellite Radio.

Chevrolet Camaro Synergy Series 2011

Chevrolet has announced plans to release a special-edition Synergy Series Camaro each year, and after last year's Synergy Green Camaro, Chevy has toned things down for the 2011 model. The 2011 version features a mix of interior and exterior colors and accessories that are not available on standard Camaros and is slated to go into production in the first quarter of next year.

2011 CHEVROLET CAMARO RED FLASH SHOW CAR

The design of the all-new Chevrolet Camaro has been acclaimed by critics and celebrated by sports car buyers. With that appeal as a springboard, Chevrolet designers created the Red Flash Camaro SS Show Car to extend Camaro's look – and even its sound – to a new level.

Red Flash combines Chevrolet Accessory parts available today with some specially designed new concepts from the design studio, resulting in a unique new Camaro statement. Its Red Jewel exterior color is accented with gray heritage stripes and gray-accented 21-inch wheels. Under the hood, a Chevrolet Accessory air intake kit and, out back, the accessory exhaust kit, enhance the car's performance, style and sound.

"The Camaro Red Flash is the opposite of a 'sleeper' on the street," said Adam Barry, lead designer. "From every angle, it looks and sounds like the high-performance sports car it is. It's a model for the enthusiast who doesn't want to hide his performance aspirations."

It also wears Chevrolet Accessory body-color ground effects, high-wing rear spoiler with black-painted stanchions and other gray accents. A lowered suspension lends a more aggressive stance.

Inside, the Red Jewel features an Ebony leather-trimmed cabin with titanium stitching and red accents on the seats. There's also a custom steering wheel, racing-style pedals and red LED lighting for the door trim.

2011 CHEVROLET CAMARO SSX TRACK CAR CONCEPT

Ever since the new Chevrolet Camaro's launch last year, owners have explored the performance potential of the car. The Camaro SSX Track Car is a concept for transforming a street Camaro SS into a closed-course track car, and a showcase for new performance parts.

"The SSX concept explores taking Camaro's excellent street performance and extending it into a road course context," said Chris Perry, vice president, Chevrolet marketing. "The car expresses Camaro performance while also signaling Chevrolet's new commitment to developing and offering a portfolio of performance parts for racing enthusiasts."

The Camaro SSX Track Car has a purposeful aesthetic, with exterior appointments and suspension modifications aimed at road course performance. They include carbon fiber aero parts – front splitter and adjustable rear wing – lightweight carbon fiber body panels, revised lower grille and unique brake cooling ducts. The carbon body panels significantly lower the Camaro's weight, as does the elimination of much of the production car's sound-deadening material, carpeting and rear seat.

Low-gloss Icy White Metallic exterior paint is contrasted with the carbon aero parts, door graphics/racing number and red details; and this competition-ready Camaro rolls on dedicated track wheels and tires. This concept was constructed with input from Pratt and Miller, Chevrolet partner in Corvette Racing, and Riley Technologies using parts proven in the Grand Am racing series.

VEHICLE HIGHLIGHTS

Exterior:

• Icy White Metallic color with red accents and door graphics

• Carbon fiber hood, fenders, door and deck lid

• Exposed carbon fiber front splitter, rockers and adjustable rear wing

• Unique lower grille and brake ducts

Interior:

• Carpeting, sound deadener and rear seat deleted

• Ace suede-covered racing steering wheel and shifter

• SCCA-approved roll cage and window net

• Racing driver's seat with five-point harness

• Racing pedals

• Fire suppression system

• Fuel cell

• Video camera system mounted on the roll cage

Performance:

• LS3 6.2L V-8 enhanced with Chevrolet Performance Parts' camshaft, cylinder heads and dry-sump oiling system

• Production six-speed manual transmission with Corvette ZR1 twin-disc clutch

• Low-restriction air induction and exhaust systems

• Four-wheel disc racing brake system with six-piston front/four-piston rear calipers and drilled and slotted rotors

• Modified production suspension with Pfadt licensed components

• 20-inch racing wheels and tires

2011 CHEVROLET CAMARO XM/ACCESSORY APPEARANCE PACKAGE

The new Chevrolet Camaro is a major hit with consumers because of its blend of desirable power, efficiency and design. Another important part of the Camaro formula is value. Chevrolet developed the XM/Accessory Appearance Package to provide new accessory and appearance options customized for the popular and affordable Camaro 1LT model. A production version of this package will be offered in the spring of 2011.

"The XM Accessory Appearance Package is all about affordable style," said Russ Clark, director, Chevrolet product marketing. "Our intent was to create a special, customized model – including 21-inch wheels – that could be had for around $30,000, a popular price point for today's Camaro buyer before they add accessories."

The XM Accessory Appearance Package is based on the Camaro 1LT model with the standard 3.6L direct injection V-6 engine featuring 312 hp and EPA highway fuel economy of 29 miles per gallon. The accessory package includes a rear spoiler, unique grille and Chevrolet Accessory 21-inch wheels. When it goes into production in 2011, the package will include a one-year subscription to XM Satellite Radio.

The Camaro XM Accessory Appearance Package at 2010 SEMA displays both production and concept styling cues. The accompanying highlights chart identifies them.

CHEVROLET CAMARO SYNERGY SERIES 2011

Chevrolet announced today that it will release a special-edition Camaro each year, called the Synergy Series, emphasizing new approaches to accessory parts and customization. At SEMA 2010, the Synergy Series 2011 show car debuts to showcase the car that will be offered to consumers in the first half of 2011 as a special-edition model.

The first Camaro Synergy model was the 2010 Synergy Green special-edition car. It proved so popular with consumers that Chevrolet is now making Synergy an annual series. The Camaro Synergy Series 2011 model contains a mix of exterior and interior accessories – including combinations not available on any other production model, including an exclusive gray interior with red accent stitching throughout. It is based on Camaro Chroma, a show car first exhibited at SEMA in 2009.

The Camaro Synergy Series 2011 model will begin production in the first quarter, in limited quantities.

"The Synergy Series reflects the strong response consumers have consistently had toward Camaro," said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. "At the same time it provides an example of how Chevrolet is renewing its commitment to expanding accessory offerings."

While the original Synergy was offered only in a single color (Synergy Green) and with the six-cylinder engine, the 2011 edition will be offered in four colors – Cyber Gray, Victory Red, Summit White and Black – as well as 2SS (V-8) and 2LT (V-6) trims with the RS package.

The Camaro Synergy SEMA Show vehicle is based on a 2SS model and displays production and concept styling cues. The accompanying highlights chart identifies them.

VEHICLE HIGHLIGHTS

Exterior:

• Cyber Gray color (production)

• Chevrolet Accessory grille and ground effects package (production)

• 21-inch painted wheel (silver finish, optional for production)

• Body-color antenna

Interior:

• Gray interior with red stitching on the seat, steering wheel, door panels, console lid, shifter boot, shift knob and headrest (production)

• Red instrument cluster and accent lighting

• Chevrolet Accessory interior trim kit in Silver Ice

Chevrolet Charges Into SEMA With Four Camaro Concepts

Chevy to unveil four Camaro concepts.

by Paul A. Eisenstein on Nov.02, 2010

The Chevrolet Camaro Red Flash is one of four Chevy pony car concepts at the 2010 SEMA show.

Trick-or-treat comes a few days late to Las Vegas, with the annual SEMA show opening its doors at the Las Vegas Convention Center today. The annual event is a clear treat for those who wander the vast floor space where manufacturers are tricking out some of their hottest products.

That includes Chevrolet, which has all manner of models on display, along with the usual assortment of crate engines and performance and appearance accessories.

But the star of the General Motors division’s display is the Chevy Camaro, for which showgoers will find four distinctly enticing alternatives that just might wind up in production – or at least many folks are hoping.

At the high end of the list is the Chevrolet Camaro SS Track Car Concept. For anyone who has dreamed of taking the Chevy pony car on putting it through its paces without worrying about Officer Friendly, here’s the answer.

Among the features on this Icy White Camaro is a full, track-ready roll cage, a fuel cell, 5-point racing harness and lightened carbon fiber panels. To further reduce weight, the SS Track Car Concept does away with the Camaro’s radio and even the carpeting and sound deadening insulation.

Want to campaign your Camaro? Here's a track-ready concept.

“The car expresses Camaro performance while also signaling Chevrolet’s new commitment to developing and offering a portfolio of performance parts for racing enthusiasts,” explains Chevy’s new general manager, Chris Perry.

Despite the Track Car’s big spoiler, the first concept you’ll likely notice, if you’re able to make it to SEMA, is the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Red Flash Show Car.

The Camaro XM Appearance Package shows the range of new options for the pony car.

With its audacious Red Jewel paint, grey heritage stripes, and 21-inch wheels, this concept would be decidedly difficult to miss. But if they fire the engine up, you’ll probably know all the way from the other side of the convention center, thanks to a performance air intake and accessory exhaust kits.

Inside, the Red Jewel boasts an Ebony leather-trimmed cabin with titanium stitching and red accents on the seats. There’s also a custom steering wheel, racing-style pedals and red LED interior accent lighting.

The Camaro Synergy Series goes into production early in 2011.

Even if you’re satisfied with your fuel-efficient LT1 engine, it doesn’t mean your Camaro can’t make a bold statement. That’s the idea behind the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro XM/Accessory Appearance Package. This concept settles for the 312-horsepower six-banger and, as you might guess, a year-long XM Satellite Radio subscription – as well as a rear spoiler, unique grille and 21-inch wheels and tires.

“The XM Accessory Appearance Package is all about affordable style,” said Russ Clark, director of Chevrolet product marketing. “Our intent was to create a special, customized model – including 21-inch wheels – that could be had for around $30,000, a popular price point for today’s Camaro buyer before they add accessories.”

The final concept is actually going to make it into production by next spring. The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Synergy Series follows in the tire prints of the ’10 Synergy Green Camaro, and features an array of interior and exterior colors – as well as a trick red stripe around the wheel rims – not currently available on the Camaro.

Chevy plans to offer four Synergy series variants, in Cyber Gray, Victory Red, Summit White and Black
