2011 Chevrolet Camaro SSX Track Car Concept Debuts at SEMA
Featured on HOMEPAGE.
2011 CHEVROLET CAMARO SSX PFADT TRACK CAR CONCEPT
Ever since the new Chevrolet Camaro’s launch last year, owners have explored the performance potential of the car. The Camaro SSX Track Car is a concept for transforming a street Camaro SS into a closed-course track car, and a showcase for new performance parts.
“The SSX concept explores taking Camaro’s excellent street performance and extending it into a road course context,” said Chris Perry, vice president, Chevrolet marketing. “The car expresses Camaro performance while also signaling Chevrolet’s new commitment to developing and offering a portfolio of performance parts for racing enthusiasts."
The Camaro SSX Track Car has a purposeful aesthetic, with exterior appointments and suspension modifications aimed at road course performance. They include carbon fiber aero parts – front splitter and adjustable rear wing – lightweight carbon fiber body panels, revised lower grille and unique brake cooling ducts. The carbon body panels significantly lower the Camaro’s weight, as does the elimination of much of the production car’s sound-deadening material, carpeting and rear seat.
Low-gloss Icy White Metallic exterior paint is contrasted with the carbon aero parts, door graphics/racing number and red details; and this competition-ready Camaro rolls on dedicated track wheels and tires. This concept was constructed with input from Pratt and Miller, Chevrolet partner in Corvette Racing, and Riley Technologies using parts proven in the Grand Am racing series.

Best 20" wheels I've seen on the Camaro by far IMO. Look at how concave those things are, sick! Great job GM!

Live pics from the Camaro SSX announcement by GMPP
Reporting live from the invitation-only GMPP (General Motors Performance Parts) event at Spring Mountain racetrack here in Nevada, we have some fantastic news for everyone! Take a look at the pictures and read our press release below!
Much more detail and SSX info and MORE pictures! at this website as well:
Today GM announced the release of the General Motors Performance Parts Z06X Corvette and SSX Camaro. These uniquely track-equipped versions of the Corvette and Camaro are built by GM and Pratt & Miller Engineering (of Corvette Racing and Camaro race car fame). Pfadt Race Engineering was selected as the exclusive and premier manufacturer for the suspension equipment on both vehicles. The Performance oriented packages will be available to the public through every GM dealer as part of the GMPP (General Motors Performance Parts) catalog. Boasting of select carbon bodywork, lightweight components throughout, increased horsepower, upgraded brakes, wheels and tires; this Camaro SSX is the real deal performance machine. Click the link above for full details!
The GM Track Pack cars are true beasts. GM has pulled out all of the stops, launching enthusiast vehicles that are factory built and ready for the road-course club racer. Interested customers can order their Corvette or Camaro package through their local GM dealership. The race cars are built by Pratt & Miller Engineering, the current constructer for GM’s highly successful ALMS/Compuware Corvettes. Customers will be able to take delivery of their race prepared packages for Corvette or Camaro and immediately have a capable race car, ready for competition at their local road course. Each vehicle will be equipped with a full compliment of tuned Pfadt Race Engineering suspension. Since the introduction of the C5 Corvette in 1997, racers have transformed the street cars into capable race cars and competed successfully against the likes of Ford, Dodge, BMW, Porsche and Ferrari. More recently, 5th Generation Camaro owners have enjoyed the same experience.
Proper Suspension. When it came time for GM and Pratt & Miller Engineering to equip the GMPP track pack cars with the best suspension products, they called Pfadt Race Engineering to get the job done. GM and Pratt & Miller could have chosen any of the existing companies to partner with, but chose Pfadt Race Engineering because of our engineering focus, our experience racing, and our commitment to the Chevrolet brand. Pfadt has the experience and products necessary to make both of these cars a success on the track; we have proven so for years with our highly successful suspension, powertrain and chassis products for the Corvette C5/C6/Z06 and 5th Generation Camaro.
Official GMPP Licensing. All Pfadt products that are included in the GMPP Track Package cars (both Corvette and Camaro) will carry the official GMPP licensing, and will be the ONLY option for factory-backed performance suspension packages that incorporate a certification from your GM dealer (off road use only). Again, this is fantastic news as ordering a Pfadt suspension package will be as easy as picking up the GMPP catalog from your local GM dealership. This isn't just one set of coilovers, this is the entire package of products for both Corvette and Camaro. GM and Pfadt Racing have you covered.
GM Commitment. GMs intentions are clear regarding their position within the motorsport industry. Industry insiders often talk of competing companies who pledge to support racers by offering viable performance and track options. With the introduction of the Track Package cars, GM is taking a firm stance by launching two platforms to suit different budgets and competition levels. GM is not only providing options to their enthusiast base, they are also presenting the performance products in an á la carte manner through the GMPP sales network, allowing customers to purchase individual components, or the entire package.
Built to win. GM is taking the competition seriously, putting its best foot forward on the Z06X Corvette and SSX Camaro. GM has partnered with the most prestigious race car builder for the fabrication and preparation of these vehicles by choosing Pratt & Miller Engineering. Pratt & Miller is responsible for the handling of these identical duties on the factory extremely successful Corvette Racing and Camaro Racing programs. By selecting Pfadt Race Engineering as the suspension partner, GM has a winning combination. The Track Pack vehicles are built with the tested and tuned products that have already earned their pedigree with success in club racing. GM knows in order to improve their already fantastic platforms for racing, they need to turned to more specialized companies to handle the performance upgrades. These companies have different objectives that align more with the interests of racers and performance enthusiasts.
GM SSX build includes the following from Pfadt:
-Front Camber/Caster plates
-Full Racing Sway Bar kit
-Solid Rear Subframe Mounts
-Rear Trailing Arms
-Full Poly Kit
-Front Trailing Arm Street Spherical
AND STAY tuned for more updates. We are literally at the GM event right now and will get more info as needed!

other than that wing, this car is probably one of the best renditions of the Camaro I have seen to date. Just that giant wing gets me, but for track use i guess i understand the purpose...
