Joining its Corvette brother, the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SSX Track Car Concept goes black-and-white for the checkered flag with a host of racing upgrades. While it's not a streetable car, it shows Chevy's commitment to supporting the teams that actually put Camaros on track, which in turn feeds back into the production Camaro's impact on the street.

Many of the improvements for the Camaro SSX Track Car Concept are focused at reducing weight--the Camaro's primary evil. Carbon fiber body panels and aero parts combine with deletion of carpeting, sound deadening and the rear seat, plus lightweight racing wheels. Some of the weight is put back with a roll cage, fire suppression system, and racing seat/restraint system.

Power for the SSX comes from the dry-sump LS3 found in the Corvette Grand Sport, with performance enhanced with Chevrolet Performance Parts cams and cylinder heads. To handle the power under racing conditions, the standard production six-speed manual is mated to a Corvette ZR1 twin-disc clutch. Upgraded brakes with racing-spec ducting help haul the show to a stop.
