LAS VEGAS — The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Spring Special Edition and a new version of the hallowed COPO model lead the Camaro pack into the 2013 SEMA Show.
The limited-edition package Spring Special Edition will be offered in 2LT and 2SS trims. Pricing and launch timing were not announced.
Details include a Summit White exterior with Blue Ray stripe and a body-color ZL1 spoiler. The Camaro Spring Special Edition will also get a Chevrolet accessories ground effects package and grille, 21-inch wheels and a blue fabric top on convertible models.
LT models get the 323-horsepower V6, while SS models include a 6.2-liter small-block V8 rated at 426 hp when paired with the six-speed manual transmission or 400 horses with the optional six-speed automatic.
Another seen-first-at SEMA Camaro is the Chevrolet Performance Garage Camaro concept. It is based on the production 2014 Camaro SS.
The concept gets a ground-effects package, Chevrolet accessories rear spoiler and grille, RS headlights and taillights, blacked-out mirrors and rear diffuser.
Chevrolet says it is a track-oriented car.
The Chevrolet Performance Camaro V6 and V8 concepts also were unveiled at the 2013 SEMA Show today.
The Camaro V6 concept gets a Brembo brake kit from the Camaro SS, a Chevrolet Accessories grille and a long list of performance and appearance modifications, including a Chevrolet Accessories pedal kit and engine cover.
The Camaro V8 concept gets a number of performance upgrades, including a performance air intake, ZL1 brake kit and ZL1 short-throw shifter. The concept showcases the personalization possibilities for the Camaro, Chevy said, adding that many of the car's components are available from Chevrolet dealers. They include a ground-effects package, rear spoiler and body-colored hood louver.
The 2014 Chevrolet COPO Camaro rounds out the Camaro offerings at SEMA. The COPO (Central Office Production Order — check out the intriguing history) Camaros are factory-produced racecars with the revised front and rear fascias of the 2014 Camaro lineup.
Each car gets an NHRA-approved roll cage and other safety equipment, along with a unique solid rear axle design in place of a regular production Camaro's independent rear axle.
Serial number 1 of the limited-production 2014 run will be auctioned by Chevrolet Performance at Barrett-Jackson's January event in Scottsdale, Arizona. Proceeds will benefit the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans. Other potential buyers must sign up with Chevy and be one of 68 intenders to win a random lottery for the opportunity to buy the car. Chevy told Edmunds that roughly 3,000 signed up for the last COPO Camaro lottery.
