GM sanctioned 2009 SEMA Camaros list announced
 
As featured on homepage.

The 2010 Camaro is one of the most anticipated cars for this year's 2009 SEMA show (November 3-6). Last year's show saw GM bring a lineup of its own concept design cars (see post here). For the 2009 SEMA show, the GM Design Team has chosen and awarded the following 8 car designers/tuners each their own Camaro to build on behalf of GM. The winning list includes some SEMA veterans, such as Rick Bottom and Neil Tjin.

-- Tjin Edition – Neil Tjin
-- National Guard – Nick Ashby
-- Rick Bottom Designs – Rick Bottom
-- Sound Choice Audio and Performance – Mark Abate
-- Bomex Aero
-- DSO Eyewear
-- Conrad Grunewald
-- Trent’s Trick Upholstery


Judging by the past creations of these designers, the one thing we can be sure of seeing at SEMA are fully customized Camaros, from top to bottom, inside to out. For example, Neil Tjin's "Tjin Edition Modern Hot Rod Chevy Camaro" will feature custom iForged 3-piece wheels wrapped in Falken tires; SSBC brakes; Air Lift suspension and a custom-built engine with JE pistons, Vortech supercharger, BDL accessories, MagnaFlow exhaust, American Racing headers and a Nitrous Express setup. The interior will feature GlowShift gauges, be carbon fiber trimmed with Status Racing carbon fiber seats and fitted with a Realm Audio system, as well as a Webasto sunroof. The exterior will feature black light WurkZ LED headlamps, Ignited HIDs and full-house Dupont custom green paint scheme.

Preview images of these designer Camaros will be released later this summer.

Sounds cool, but I'm still waiting to see what Chip Foose can do with this car. :drool:

bnkriggs 07-14-2009 05:22 PM

this is great. i was there last year and the cars looked great but i was pissed off that everybody had customized the challanger and the gtr, i told myself "cant wait till next year, when the camaro gets to show its creative side." "good news"

You can officially colour me impressed when these guys can do a street legal version of these cars that the rest of us could build.

I don't think that's exactly the point of many of the cars shown at SEMA. Think of it like a fashion show of cars... designers showing off their ideas, many of which won't ever make it to production or on the roads.

Indpowr 07-14-2009 07:12 PM

That is why DSV Customs is trying to come out with many parts as we can to make the car more exotic feeling/smelling

Tjin Edition Camaro 07-14-2009 07:24 PM

The Tjin Editoin Camaro will have the show and go aspect, but there will be numerous parts found on our Camaro that the general public will be able to afford and purchase for their Camaro. Many of these manufactures see the popularity of the Camaro and are looking to make products for them. SEMA will be great place to see many high profile Camaro's and it will be a great thing for the GM brand!

69 Hugger 07-14-2009 07:30 PM

Aside from the factory support, the SEMA auto show stands out because of the almost limitless number of small companies that come to Vegas to show off their latest new products. Products and the cars give others ideas of what can be done and sold to the public.

Wait wait wait... this is going to be enough of a beast to warrant air bags and carbon-fibre seats, yet they're going to install a sunroof?! Why would you do that to a car so obviously designed for the strip? Reducing torsional rigidity, adding mass, and destroying cockpit safety? Come on, you must have meant a rollcage or lexan windows or a fire-suppression system or something besides... a sunroof!

Nah I disagree - where are the Engineer specialists at? :help:

It seems to me that if you install the rigid framework of a sunroof in place of flat sheet-metal you are increasing the structural integrity of the roof area.:iono: ...not reduce torsional rigidity or destroy cockpit safety. If it were a cockpit safety issue, GM wouldn't offer the Sunroof as an option.

Here is Webasto's product. ...and their YouTube web-ad.

Bomex Aero huh? Look for some very aggressive japanese looking body kits. I'm actually interested to see the direction they take with the body lines of the Camaro.

red_racer2 07-15-2009 12:52 PM

I am not very impressed with any of the vehicles that have shown what they are doing for SEMA. As for the companies list above most look like theyare rice based... :barf:. I am looking forward to seeing the cars that GM did not supoort, those are the ones to look for.

can people stop Stretching the word rice :facepalm:


To me the meaning of Rice means useless Bodykits,wings,mufflers that some Teen decides to put on there FWD car


The camaro is the farthest thing from Rice:facepalm:

I am not bashing any of the designs, I am just stating my opinion. Thats all I will say since I dont want to be banded from the forumn.


Do I have a clue? Yes I do. I know what it takes to put a car together for Sema. So I guess we all will see each other there.

My statement about rice refers to previous kits that I have seen that were designed. I hope to see some great body kits designed for the camaro from the companies that were awarded a camaro from GM.

It doesn't matter how well you brace up the hole you made, the fact is you had to cut through existing solid bodyshell and bigger, more sound roofbracing in the first place. Sure, you could even run braces across the hole on both sides of the glass, but it's not going to function as a unit, meaning you get more chassis flex and stress on either side. Think about the kind of torque this car's going to be making, and without a frame to absorb any of that punishment.

As far as safety goes, I don't mean for a daily-driver. This looks like a car built for the drag strip, and racing officials tend not to like items like that.
