Exclamation GM SEMA Camaro ZL1 Carbon Concept Announced!


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE.


Camaro ZL1 Carbon Concept

Welcome to the dark side of Camaro ZL1. This concept incorporates all the technology and performance of the Camaro ZL1 – which goes on sale in 2012 – but with an added layer of carbon fiber to add a decidedly sinister-looking element of form to a car that’s all about function. Included on this concept is the new Ashen Gray exterior paint (available on all 2012 Camaro models).

Vehicle highlights:
  • Chevrolet Accessories exposed-weave carbon fiber “Mohawk” hood insert
  • Carbon fiber rear spoiler with stainless-steel wicker bill
  • Carbon fiber inserts on the interior door and instrument panel
  • Lightweight 20x10-inch (front) and 20x11-inch (rear) wheels in satin black with machined faces
  • Brembo® six-piston front calipers, with two-piece front rotors, and four-piston rear calipers (Chevrolet Official Licensed Product)
  • Magnetic Ride Control
  • Dual exhaust outlets with active exhaust and diffuser
  • Jet Black leather interior with sueded microfiber seat inserts and Torch Red stitching
  • ZL1 short-throw shifter with suede and carbon fiber-trimmed shift knob
  • Suede-trimmed flat-bottom steering wheel
  • ZL1 pedals
“This concept’s dramatic appearance matches the extreme performance capabilities of the Camaro ZL1,” said Tony Roma, program engineering manager for the Camaro ZL1. “And even if its styling doesn’t intimidate you, its performance on the track will.”

Looks like those who wait for the 2013 ZL1 might be able to get some special items on their cars.

Does this mean that Chevy is going to release a 1LE track pack car in a year or two?

Sounds like a package for non-ZL1 cars, similar to how the Z06 offers a similar package from the ZR1 with the Z07 package.

I wonder if this will actually be made available as a package and if so, when? Hopefully they provide some info at the show.

Love the wheels and spoiler... not much else is new other than the interior accents.

Waiting for MY2013 might have been a good move after all!

I like the blacked out sidemarkers!

Very nice. Find a way to throw the ZR-1 brakes on it and it would be perfect. (wouldn't mind seeing an LS9 in it either)

I love the polished wheels.

This all depends on the markups by dealers. I doubt if they will let it go for MSRP unless the market is saturated with ZL1's by then, which I am really doubting. Gotta love some of the Stealerships!

I want to see the pics of the actual vehicle, not a photoshop. Mainly to see how the exposed carbon fiber insert goes with Ashen Gray. I'm getting Ashen Gray, just completely torn between the exposed insert or the black insert with stripe right now.

Hopefully we get a lot of quality pics of this ride at SEMA and that'll help me with my decision.

If you ask me that CF insert looks darker - almost black as compared to the real one we've seen. Maybe it is just the photoshop and a trick of light and shadow, or maybe it is actually different.

And on a completely selfish rant... you want more pictures of something we already have several pictures and a video of?!? Still no IOM pics... just saying.

I really like the wheels! I wonder if this will be like the 'Jake' Edition Concept Corvette. They did not build the car but made all of the parts available for purchase.
