New Camaro Turbo AutoX And SS Slammer Concepts Join Chevy’s SEMA Stage

Among the myriad of Camaros making their way to the Las Vegas strip for this year’s SEMA show are two concepts from #Chevrolet named the Turbo AutoX and SS Slammer.

Starting with the Turbo AutoX, it’s based on the 2.0-liter turbocharged Camaro sporting a hard-to-miss Shock Yellow paint-job complemented with Pearl Nickel hood stripes and satin Carbon Flash Metallic accents, with Chevy stating that it comes with “more agile handling that’s ideal for autocross enthusiasts.”

The bow-tie brand says it improved the car’s roll stiffness and turn-in performance through a series of suspension upgrades. These include an available Chevrolet Performance lowering kit with stiffer springs and specifically tuned dampers that lower the ride height up to 0.75 inch (20mm), matched to conceptual parts, including a “plus performance” handling kit with larger stabilizer bars and stiffer suspension links, and a strut tower brace under the hood.

Other additions include a set of conceptual 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 285/35R20 tires from Goodyear, Chevrolet Performance’s front brake kit with six-piston calipers and 370mm, two-piece slotted rotors, a concept cold-air intake system, a short-throw shifter for the 6sp manual gearbox, and a Chevrolet Performance exhaust system with a polished 4-inch outlet.

Whereas the focus with the Turbo AutoX was to enhance the Camaro 2.0 Turbo’s autocross performance, with the Slammer study, it’s all about looks or rather, ‘stance’, as Chevy puts it.

“The Camaro SS Slammer concept is a design exercise intended to take the Gen 6 Camaro’s proportions to the extreme, pushing boundaries to evoke reactions and inspiring personalization on behalf of other Camaro owners,” said John Cafaro, executive director, Global Chevrolet Design. “From styling accessories to performance parts, the choices from Chevrolet for new Camaro owners are almost endless.”

Chevy’s customized vision of the 455hp V8-powered Camaro SS Slammer is painted in a unique tri-coat ‘Dazzling Black’ color with an air-adjustable suspension delivering the slammed stance, which is further accentuated by the massive 22-inch front and 24-inch rear chrome wheels shod in 245/30R22 and 275/25R24 tires respectively.

The study also incorporates a number of Chevrolet Accessories, including a ground effects kit, black bowtie emblems and Camaro fender badges, together with tinted lights, custom engine cover, and Chevrolet Performance Brembo brake kit and sports exhaust system.
