Camaro Dale Earnhardt Jr. Concept
If you didn't already know it, NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a big-time early-Camaro fan. GM asked him how he would modify the new Camaro. Wanting a modern day Pro Touring-style street machine, his vision included an E85 conversion for a more aggressive tune from the factory SS 6.2L V-8, aiding to bump up the horsepower levels by a few digits. Transferring the power is the SS optioned six-speed tranny with a Hurst shifter for aggressive rowing action. For the exterior, his paint scheme of choice is a trick custom gray over white, and he also chose a Chevy Accessories grille, ground effects with a rear diffuser, a dovetail rear spoiler, production HID headlamps, and production RS taillamps. Of course, handling is key. To help promote adhesion and braking for spirited driving, it features a lowered stance with massive 21-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero ZR-rated performance rubber.
Camaro Black Concept
No doubt about it, if Darth Vader could have given his rendition for the exterior, this would be it. Underneath the hood is a potent 300hp 3.6L V-6 that isn't afraid to lay the smack down. Most of the modifications are geared toward the exterior: a complete Chevy Accessories ground effects package and rear diffuser, a matte shaded hood, an SS-model rear spoiler, RS taillamps, and 21-inch rollers with a darkened finish. Adding to the unique look are a revised grille, also in a dark finish, and HID lights with a halo ring. For braking, all four corners are outfitted with Brembo binders.
Camaro GS Racecar Concept
If you're into Trans Am road racing, you undoubtedly recognize the paint scheme that commemorates Mark Donohue's championship-winning '69 Camaro. Through the combined efforts of GM High Performance Vehicle Operations and Riley Technologies, they created a real-world brawler that is also the prototype for the Grand Am Koni Challenge GS racing class. This baby is race-ready and based off the Camaro body-in-white that will be available for approximately $7,000 without a vehicle identification number; that means you can't register these for the street and are strictly limited to racing applications (Can you imagine what a sportsman doorslammer would look like???) The GS shown here is outfitted with a close-ratio Tremec 6060 six-speed, custom 3-inch exhaust, and tranny and differential oil coolers and is powered by a production LS3 mill.
