DAYTONA BEACH, Florida — The 2014 Chevrolet SS production model will be unveiled on February 16 at Daytona International Speedway, with the Holden version of the car set for a reveal on Sunday.

Chevrolet spokesman Michael Albano confirmed the U.S. unveiling of the SS (short for Super Sport) in an e-mailed message to Edmunds The limited-production version of the Chevrolet SS will arrive in showrooms in late 2013. It will be the first time in 17 years that Chevrolet will offer a rear-wheel-drive sedan for sale in the U.S.

The speedway setting represents a novel approach for the General Motors brand.

In the meantime, Holden is asking the curious to build the new VF Commodore via a special Web site, with bits and pieces of the car being gradually revealed. The VF Commodore is the Holden version of the SS.

The most recent SS model in the Chevrolet lineup is the fifth-generation Camaro, which debuted in 2010.

Drivers wheeling the new SS in competition at Daytona and throughout the NASCAR season include the sport's most popular driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr.; five-time champion Jimmie Johnson; four-time champ Jeff Gordon; Clint Bowyer, runner-up to Brad Keselowski in last year's Sprint Cup Series driving championship; and others.

The SS is the new face on the NASCAR scene as far as models are concerned. Ford will continue to race the Fusion and Toyota the Camry. However, all the models will represent a departure from the previous generation NASCAR machine, which had a standard body with certain styling points from the production models and decals mimicking the nose and tail. The new racecars have been built to more closely resemble their street counterparts.

Edmunds says: If the new NASCAR machines do translate into "win on Sunday, sell on Monday" results, as the manufacturers and NASCAR are hoping, Chevy will have to wait for halo-effect sales for several months.
