Four eye-catching sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro concepts have been unveiled at SEMA 2015. Each of the four concepts demonstrates the extensive personalisation options available from Chevrolet through its accessories and performance parts divisions.
Starting with the white example, it has been dubbed the Camaro Performance concept and is based around the Camaro SS. Alongside the white paint, it includes bright red accents but most importantly, some Chevrolet performance parts. These include a suspension lowering kit as well as a Brembo front brake upgrade kit with six-piston calipers. It is also rolling on 20-inch wheels and has black front and rear bowtie badges.
Next up is the Camaro Hyper concept finished in a bright shade of blue dubbed Hyper Blue Metallic and contrasted with a Ceramic White interior. It has been fitted with a new rear spoiler, 20-inch polished forged aluminium wheels, new upper and lower grilles, a performance exhaust and lowered suspension as well.
The Camaro Black concept is painted in Mosaic Black Metallic and is noteworthy for a few reasons. For starters, it has the ground effects kit as well as a rear blade spoiler, 20-inch aluminium wheels, black hood vents and a number of interior tweaks including new door lighting and black suede knee pads.
Finally is the Camaro Krypton concept adorned with bright green paint contrasted by metallic black. Beyond the paint, the car has 20-inch wheels, HID headlights, new upper and lower grilles, a rear spoiler and lowering kit.
“Customized quartet demonstrate personalization and performance possibilities
LAS VEGAS – With the all-new 2016 Camaro rolling soon into dealerships across the country, Chevrolet introduced four customized concepts at the SEMA Show today – each demonstrating the personalization possibilities enabled by a new lineup of accessories and performance parts.
The customized quartet includes:

Camaro Hyper concept
The Camaro Hyper concept strikes a bold and sophisticated pose with its Hyper Blue Metallic exterior contrasting with a new Ceramic White interior.

Camaro Black concept
This blacked-out Camaro SS concept makes a simple-yet-powerful styling statement – one increasingly popular with performance enthusiasts.
“It is a very popular thing customers do with the fifth-generation Camaro and we wanted to be the first to show how it looks with the new Gen Six,” said Adam Barry, senior creative designer, Chevrolet Camaro. “I’ll tell you – it looks pretty sinister.”
Starting with the production Mosaic Black Metallic exterior color, the Camaro features several custom exterior treatments, including Mosaic Black Metallic hood vents, black-outlined SS badges, black-tinted windows, special Black Edition logos on the fenders, steering wheel and console cover – and black 20-inch aluminum wheels.
The additional exterior and interior features come from the new Camaro portfolio from Chevrolet Accessories, including:
Ground effects kit
Rear blade spoiler
Black bowtie emblems
Black interior Spectrum door trim lighting
Chevrolet Performance-logo floor mats with light grey edging
Black suede knee pads.
The Camaro Black concept backs up its sinister look with new performance parts, including exhaust and air intake kits, a brake upgrade kit and the new suspension- lowering kit.
Camaro Krypton concept
Krypton is one of the six nobles gases and is used to help illuminate fluorescent lights. When combined with other gases, it can create a greenish-yellow luminous lighting effect similar to neon.
That luminescent quality was the inspiration behind the Camaro Krypton concept’s exterior color. The fluorescent green primary color is officially called Krypton Green and is a custom hue developed exclusively for this Gen Six SEMA concept.
Camaro Krypton features an electroluminescent paint technology. With the flip of a switch, the dynamic design comes alive with illuminated bowties on the body sides.
The concept also features the available RS package, which includes 20-inch wheels, high-intensity discharge headlamps custom-trimmed in green, darkened taillamps, unique upper and lower grilles and a rear spoiler. Additionally, this custom Camaro strikes a sportier stance with the new Chevrolet Performance lowering kit and sounds strong with the available dual-mode exhaust – with custom-painted exhaust tips.
At the SEMA Show
The quartet of Camaro concepts are some of more than 20 concept and production vehicles on display this week at the SEMA Show, including additional Gen Six Camaro concepts, as well as Corvette Stingray and Z06 models, Silverado, Colorado and more.”
