GM rolls out a life sized Camaro Hot Wheels model at the 2011 SEMA Show

While General Motors devoted a huge portion of their 2011 SEMA Show display to their sporty new compact Chevy Sonic. The Chevrolet Camaro was also out in full force with one of the most impressive versions being the gorgeous green-chrome unit shown on the right - designed in the style of a vintage Hot Wheels racer.

The Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Concept might look like another bright green Camaro, but if you look closely you’ll notice that this green paint is actually a high gloss green chrome with a variety of conceptual (not currently for sale) and GM accessories to give it a completely unique look. From the front to the back, this Camaro Hot Wheels Concept is unlike any other concept Camaro we have seen before and that starts up front with the grille from the ZL1 sporting the familiar Hot Wheels logo. Next, the hood gets a black aluminum hood insert with eight prominent heat extractors - all of which is finished in a black satin stripe that runs the length of the car. Across the back, the Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Concept gets some unique “Euro style” smoked taillights, a rear fascia with an integrated diffuser and exhaust bezels and the spoiler from the ZL1 super Camaro. The exterior is finished off with more Hot Wheels logos with a ground effects package in satin black, while a set of 20” satin black wheels with a red stripe complete the package.

Inside, the Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Concept gets gobs of black leather with torch red accents, Hot Wheels sill plates and seat logos, a Chevrolet Accessories pedal kit and red ambient lighting. This Camaro show car also features all of the leather bits and premium sound system items of the traditional Camaro SS.

Finally, the Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Concept receives some performance enhancing items beginning with a Brembo brake package with six piton front calipers, four piston rear calipers and two piece rotors. A GM-licensed Pedders suspension kit adjusts the handling and stance of this green chromed out muscle car with additional help from a Chevrolet Accessories strut tower brace and last but most certainly not least, the Hot Wheels Camaro gets a Chevrolet Accessories exhaust system that adds some sound and performance. This is all based on the 6.2L LS3 V8 packing 426 horsepower mated to a proper 6-speed manual transmission - the same items found in the current Camaro SS.

While we are unlikely to see the elaborate show car package seen on the Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels Concept offered in fully built production form, many of the items are currently offered at your local Chevy dealership so a Camaro SS owner could built this car - although the green chrome paint will cost you a pretty penny.
