Get the first details of Chevy's latest concept, the Chevrolet Sonic Z-Spec, inside.

Chevrolet has officially unveiled a new design study based on the Chevy Sonic (also known as the Aveo).  The matte black and orange Chevrolet Sonic Z-Spec Concept will be on display at the North American International Auto Show for the next two weeks.

Glossy orange coloring is used for the racing stripe, mirror caps, trim around the radiator and the rear spoiler.  Not only is the color used on the BBS alloy racing wheels, but it is also utilized inside.  In the cabin, leather-lined Recaro seats, flat-bottom steering wheel cover, and shift boot all come in tan with orange stitching.

Outside, the 18-inch BBS wheels up front cover four-piston Brembo brakes and cross drilled rotors.  Standard drum brakes are still used at back.

Engine details were not released for the car, though it likely uses a more powerful version of the Sonic's turbocharged 1.4-liter Ecotec engine.  The stock version of that engine kicks out 138 hp (103 kW) and up to 148 ft-lb (200 Nm) of torque.

Check out the video of the Chevrolet Sonic Z-Spec and let us know what you think.  We imagine a positive response to the car will lead to distribution of at least some of the car's parts by Chevy dealers.
