Arrow RealWheels / Maui Jim “Cool Shades” Chevy Camaro debuting at 2009 SEMA

As featured on Homepage.

Quote:
The award-winning project team at RealWheels Corporation is known for their wild theme-vehicle projects and, quite often, the unusual partnerships used to create them. Each year, these innovative designs are unveiled at the automotive industry’s largest aftermarket products event, the SEMA Show (Specialty Equipment Market Association). The team’s marketing concept was described as “A new era in cross-promotion” when they teamed with Las Vegas Illusionist, Criss Angel for a Magic-themed Mindfreak Hummer. Then, when they arrived last year with a music-themed ride they built with legendary rockers CHEAP TRICK, it blasted show attendees with fog machines, laser lights and even the Rockband video game. So… why should we be surprised to see Team REAL roll into SEMA this year wearing sunglasses in the hall? Introducing the RealWheels / Maui Jim “Cool Shades” Chevy Camaro.

“In order to get some attention at an amazing show like SEMA, you’ve got to come up with something unique.” Says RealWheels Vice President, Jhan R. Dolphin, “For one thing, it really helps keep our team enthusiastic during the build process, and then when the vehicles are completed, they always seem more attention-getting and enjoyable for the audience. So this year, we are thrilled to join forces with luxury sunglass manufacturer, Maui Jim.”

RealWheels Corporation has just released a new billet accessory package for the new Camaro, so having one at the show was a must. Their new trim kit features billet shift knobs, fuel door, pedals, and a variety of stainless steel goodies that compliment the vehicle’s design. They used this new accessory package to put the final touch of class and style to the Cool Shades car. “There will be a lot of new Chevy Camaros at the 2009 SEMA show, but I believe ours will run with the best of them.” Added Dolphin, “This thing is sexy, stylish and aggressive.”

The custom Sherwin Williams paint and bodywork from Estrada Customs quickly draws your eye to the vehicle, and then you’ll begin to notice the aggressive stance that has been provided by the 22” Nitto tires, GWG wheels and Pedders suspension upgrades. The Maui Jim logo is placed on the upper left side of the windshield, just like a pair of Maui Jim shades. Then you open the door. The red accents that were noticed on the exterior have flowed nicely into the vehicle’s custom Alea Leather seating and trim. Team REAL’s creative use of Streetglow accent lighting has become one of their signatures, and the Camaro’s interior features seem to glow from their innovative placement of red LED lights. With a turn of the key, all of your attention goes to the sound and power. Air being thrust through the ProCharger supercharger, SLP headers and exhaust combo, create one of the best exhaust notes you can imagine.

So, where can you find this automotive beast? Look for the guys wearing the cool shades. SEMA exhibit #30167

Reminds me of the ford grille:

It is a V8 2SS RS. They smoothed out the mail slot for a cleaner look.

While I am planning several mods for my Camaro (had the dealer remove my headlamps before I even took delivery), there isn't a thing on this themed version that interests me.

Darn it. I was hoping for more ideas!

It looks like a SS front bumper and they filled/shaved the mail slot. (GM should take note)

Shaved mail slot FTW.

Love: Paint, rims/tires, stance, hood mods, vents behind the front tires, sill plates/pedals, interior lighting, overall stance. I'm sure the engine mods are right on.

Not so hot: Grill - a little to look at me. Red Interior trim - nope. Spoiler - not bad, but looks to thick/chunky.

My 2 cents.

Overall very cool! Thanks for showing!

Looks very nice. I esp. like the filled in mail slot. Looks much better without it.

Not a big fan myself, I don't like the black wheels, and the grill isn't all that attractive to me. The interior looks pretty sharp and the spoiler isn't bad either.

That is super nice! Love the wheels. Love what they did with the grill...it definitely sets the car off from the other SEMA cars we've seen so far... which brings the total up to like 432!

Thumbs up

I like that car. I like the stance, the wheels.
I'm not a big fan of the grill or lower grill. The interior, I'm still up in the air about.
