Based on a production Camaro SS, the Garage
Camaro concept is a track-oriented car that
incorporates performance and suspension
components from the Z/28, as well as parts
from the Chevrolet Performance catalog.
SS GETS THE
“ 24” TOUCH
Four-time NASCAR champion Jeff
Gordon brings another dimension
to Chevrolet’s performance sedan.
Chevrolet’s performance street cars have
always been infused with racing DNA,
thanks to decades of technology transfer
from the race track. But at the annual
SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the bond
between track and street is stronger still
as Chevy and some of its big-name racers
showcase high-performance concept cars.
When four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup
champion Jeff Gordon was invited to
FROM VIRTUAL TO REALITY
collaborate on a Chevrolet SS concept to
be revealed at the 2013 SEMA show last
November, it was an offer he couldn’t refuse.
The resulting Gordon SS is an
aggressively understated take on Chevy’s
all-new, rear-wheel-drive performance
sedan that looks as sharp as it drives.
“Man, that was a fun project,” said

A special-edition Corvette Stingray
concept features in the newly-released
Gran Turismo 6 for Sony PlayStation 3 –
and to celebrate the 15th anniversary of
the world’s most popular racing simulator,
Chevy unveiled a real-life version of the
GT6 ’Vette at the SEMA Show.
Like all 2014 Corvette Stingray models,
the Gran Turismo concept is powered by
the new, 6.2-liter LT1 V8. Featuring direct
injection, continuously-variable valve timing
and Chevy’s Active Fuel Management as
standard, the LT1 in the Gran Turismo
’Vette pushes 460hp and 465lb.ft of
torque to the rear wheels, via a standard
seven-speed manual transmission.
The custom exterior paint scheme is
just the start of many distinctive exterior
and interior elements that make up the
Gran Turismo concept. Add in a carbon
fiber rear wing, custom carbon fiber hood
and extractor, a ground-effects kit with
carbon fiber rockers and front splitter, a
custom front grille and fenders, and
yellow-tinted headlamps and you’re
beginning to scratch the surface on what
makes it such a unique Stingray.
Inside the Gran Turismo Corvette,
custom-trimmed Competition Sport
seats, driver and passenger racing
harnesses, custom flat-bottom steering
wheel and leather-wrapped safety belt
bar and rear braces deliver performance
and style in equal measure.
