SEMA 2012: Chevy Breaks Out a Trio of Custom Camaros and Corvettes
The Big Three of American automakers have always been known for making a Sandy-sized splash at the less-than-subtle SEMA show every year in Las Vegas- especially Chevy. Last year alone, we saw a boat load of Camaros, Corvettes and Sonics on the showroom floor. This year, Chevy promises to bring even more awesome and less subtlety to Sin City. And so far, they have yet to disappoint. The first of three being a special edition 1967 Hot Wheels Camaro paying homage to the original Hot Wheels Camaro in 1968, complete with retro-inspired body style, 18-inch alloy wheels and an LS3 E-Rod "Connect and Cruise" Powertrain System.
Aside from a partnership with much-loved Hot Wheels, Chevrolet got together with two (dare we say) “celebrities” for a customized Camaro and Corvette.
The Tony Stewart Edition Camaro ZL1 is a reminder of why NASCAR drivers race the cars rather than design them. Sporting a red tribal wrap on the front fenders, and a charcoal scheme over the rest of the body, this overly-ambitious design is one that should feel right at home with the SEMA crowd.
Powered by a supercharged 6.2L LSA, the ZL1 is capable of 580-hp and a 0-60 time of only 4 seconds.
Last but certainly not least, everyone’s least favorite spikey-haired restaraunteur, Guy Fieri, even got a hand in designing this Corvette 427 Collectors Edition blending both Z06 and ZR1 design cues and throwing 505-hp into the mix. Spicy! Or whatever he says.(ed."That chicken's got some kickin"...probably)
