“Racing is the common thread among Chevrolet’s performance cars and that comes from decades of transferring race technology to our production models,” said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Corvette, Camaro and SS deliver well-balanced, exhilarating driving experiences forged on the racetrack and refined for the street.”
Among these racing or racing-inspired cars are a 2014 COPO Camaro, 2014 Camaro Z/28, Jeff Gordon SS performance sedan, Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo concept, Corvette Stingray Convertible Atlantic concept, Corvette Stingray Coupe Pacific concept, Chevrolet Performance Garage Camaro concept, Chevrolet Performance Camaro V-8 concept, Chevrolet Performance Camaro V-6 concept, and the Camaro Spring Special Edition. From the race-only COPO with its blown 350 LS engine to the street-legal Z/28 with its dry-sump LS7 and the many high-modified concept vehicles, a racer should feel right at home in the Chevrolet Performance booth. The V-8 Concept sports the ZL1 brake kit and short-throw shifter along with Z/28 suspension upgrades, brake ducts, and exhaust as well as Recaro seats and other interior/exterior upgrades. The Gran Turismo C7 concept utilizes perhaps the largest amount of custom parts including a carbon fiber rear wing, hood, extractor, exhaust tips, front grille, front fender and quarter panel vents, and a flat-bottom steering wheel. To complete the racy look, a front tow hook, racing harnesses, custom-trimmed Competition Sport seats, and yellow-tinted headlights were added.
