A new special-edition Camaro is set to hit the SEMA show floor this year, but unlike the majority of the wheeled hardware on display, this one is for (relative) mass consumption. The 2011 Camaro Synergy Series will be available to retail customers in the first half of next year--and unlike previous Synergy Camaros, they won't be green.
So what sets the Synergy Series apart? A unique mix of interior and exterior accessories, based on the look of the Camaro Chroma shown at last year's SEMA show. The combination of options are not yet available on any production Camaro, and include a choice of four colors: Cyber Gray, Victory Red, Summit White, and Black, in both SS and V-6 variants. Large 21-inch painted silver wheels on the concept will be options when the model goes to production, while the interior treatment of red stitching, instrument cluster lighting, and footwell and cupholder lighting will be standard.
A range of Hurst and Chevrolet accessories, from the shifters to the floor mats, are also available, varying depending on the engine/transmission combo chosen. Hit up page two for the full release, though the gallery tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the new Synergy Series Camaro.
CHEVROLET CAMARO SYNERGY SERIES 2011
Chevrolet announced today that it will release a special-edition Camaro each year, called the Synergy Series, emphasizing new approaches to accessory parts and customization. At SEMA 2010, the Synergy Series 2011 show car debuts to showcase the car that will be offered to consumers in the first half of 2011 as a special-edition model.
The first Camaro Synergy model was the 2010 Synergy Green special-edition car. It proved so popular with consumers that Chevrolet is now making Synergy an annual series. The Camaro Synergy Series 2011 model contains a mix of exterior and interior accessories – including combinations not available on any other production model, including an exclusive gray interior with red accent stitching throughout. It is based on Camaro Chroma, a show car first exhibited at SEMA in 2009.
The Camaro Synergy Series 2011 model will begin production in the first quarter, in limited quantities.
“The Synergy Series reflects the strong response consumers have consistently had toward Camaro,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “At the same time it provides an example of how Chevrolet is renewing its commitment to expanding accessory offerings.”
While the original Synergy was offered only in a single color (Synergy Green) and with the six-cylinder engine, the 2011 edition will be offered in four colors – Cyber Gray, Victory Red, Summit White and Black – as well as 2SS (V-8) and 2LT (V-6) trims with the RS package.
The Camaro Synergy SEMA Show vehicle is based on a 2SS model and displays production and concept styling cues. The accompanying highlights chart identifies them.
