Chevrolet came out big at the 2016 SEMA Show with a number of impressively modded vehicles, one being the Camaro Turbo AutoX concept.
Designed for autocross courses, the American sports car combines a capable 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with a performance-tuned suspension, brake system, air intake and exhaust system, making it adept in both straight line acceleration and corner-carving.
It has been lowered by 0.75 inches (20mm) with a Chevrolet Performance suspension lowering kit, giving it stiffer springs and specifically-tuned dampers. A concept strut tower brace under the hood provides additional chassis stiffness, while the wheel wells are stuffed with Concept Chevrolet Accessories 20-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in Goodyear 285/35R20 tires.
Braking performance gets a boost from a concept Chevrolet Performance front brake kit, giving the Camaro Turbo AutoX six-piston calipers and 370mm, two-piece slotted rotors.
Chevrolet’s designers gave the exterior a Shock Yellow paint finish, complimenting it with Pearl Nickel hood stripes and satin Carbon Flash Metallic accents on the hood vents, rockers and rear diffuser.
The interior is trimmed in black and features a carbon fiber instrument panel insert, a suede-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel and shift knob, and a bolt-in harness bar and five-point safety harnesses.
Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports, had the following to say:
“This concept pushes Camaro in a new direction, integrating new performance parts that make the most of the turbocharged Camaro’s lightweight dynamics.”
