Sema Show, Las Vegas - With a brand name synonymous with muscle cars there's little surprise in seeing a swarm of modified Chevrolets on the Sema show floors.

This year's line-up includes a Chevrolet SS inspired by Jeff Gordon alongside a tantalising mix of Camaros and Corvettes pimped to show off their true potential.

JEFF GORDON SS

The Chevrolet SS (basically the new Lumina, although not destined for SA) was given a much needed visual perk-up with input from Nascar star Jeff Gordon.

The Aussie brute gains 20-inch alloys, custom front bumper, carbon fibre rear spoiler, satin exterior finish, lowered suspension and a Borla performance exhaust system.

No tinkering under the bonnet though, although the SS already boasts a 309kW 6.2-litre V8.

CAMARO DREAMIN'

Inspiring Camaro fans to dream a little beyond the stock standard muscle car, the Performance Garage Camaro, along with the Performance Camaro V-6 and V-8 concepts, were bolted together using a combination of Chevrolet accessories as well as various performance and suspension parts from the new Z/28 and ZL1.

Intent on proving a point, the new Camaro Z/28 rocked up at Sema in stock standard from. This lightweight, 377kW 7-litre muscle machine's claim to fame is that it lapped the Nürburgring in 7:37.40 during wet track conditions.

PLAYFUL CORVETTES

The Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo concept is something of a real-world version of a virtual race winner, styled to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the Sony PlayStation game that shares its name. Beneath the bonnet is Chevrolet's 343kW 6.2-litre V8.

For those that prefer the force of a blizzard, the Corvette Convertible Atlantic concept was inspired by the style and refinement of a private jet while its across-the-continent Coupe Pacific counterpart, which is based on the Coupe, was influenced by the race-inspired West Coast car culture.
