Chevrolet will showcase a handful of Camaro concepts, most previewing new accessories planned for the car

The striking Camaro Black Concept we reported on earlier is just one of a handful of new Camaro concepts Chevrolet is planning for this month’s SEMA Auto Show. The carmaker has just released images and a few minor details about the complete lineup, which is set to include the aforementioned Black Concept, a concept fitted with the Camaro’s upcoming accessories line, a concept fitted with an LS7 V8, one that was designed with input from NASCAR’s Dale Earnhardt Jr., and a race car inspired version.

One of the most interesting concepts planned is the Camaro LS7 Concept, which as its name suggests is powered by a GM Performance Parts LS7 Crate engine. This is the same engine found in the Corvette Z06 but in the Camaro concept vehicle it has been tuned to 550hp. Other features include a Tremec six-speed manual, Brembo brakes, lowered suspension, and 20in alloys.

Another, named after NASCAR’s Dale Earnhardt Jr., is based on the Camaro SS but has been tuned to run on high-octane E85 fuel. The exterior features a gray-over-white paint scheme, and other details include 21in alloy wheels and a dovetail spoiler.

Another highlight is the Camaro GS Racecar Concept, which has been styled along the lines of Mark Donahue's original blue-and-yellow Trans Am Series Camaro. The car features a production LS3 V8 mated to a Tremec 6060 six-speed, but comes with a carbon fiber hood, bonnet, doors, and fenders, as well as a three inch exhaust and upgraded cooling accessories.
