Fans who visit the SEMA show this year may be a bit disappointed with the official Corvette offerings from Chevrolet.
This year the spotlight is on Camaro and deservedly so as the icon muscle car celebrates its 50th Anniversary. To show off some of the different configurations possible, Chevy brought a full contingent of Camaros to star at SEMA.
One of those Camaros that Chevrolet is featuring is the 2.0L turbo powered Camaro AutoX concept designed for attacking autocross courses. The logo features the same “X” design we saw on the 2011 Corvette Z06X and Camaro X Concepts.
The automaker is showing three Corvettes that are part of the Chevrolet display here at SEMA. The one-and-only 2017 Corvette Grand Sport Collector Edition is right at home with its bright tension blue interior.
On the left side of the Collector Edition is a a 2016 Corvette Stingray in Corvette Racing Yellow featuring the performance flow-down parts from the Corvette Z06 while on the right side is another 2016 Corvette Stingray mounted on its side so you can see how those Z06 parts were installed on the car.
Chevrolet’s Jim Campbell once again hosted the official SEMA Press Conference and he goes through some of the Camaros on display before turning his attention to trucks. There was an unveiling of a hydrogen-powered Chevrolet Colorado and and we learned that versions of the vehicle are being tested by the US military to judge its fitness of supporting troops in the field.
Although no Corvettes were presented in the video, we still want to share the video of the Chevrolet press conference filmed from the SEMA show floor:
