SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) is a massive custom and accessory auto show that takes place each year in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year’s (Nov. 2 – 5, 2010) show brought more than 107,000 people from all over the world in to sniff out the latest automotive aftermarket opportunities.
Chevrolet was there in full force with Corvettes galore. Attendees could witness the assembling of the powerplant for a ZR1. New and old renditions of Corvettes were revealed. Chevrolet even released two distinct Corvette concepts at the show!
- 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Jake Edition Concept – Jake, the Corvette Racing team’s mascot, is plastered all over this hot ride. The vehicle is fully accessorized with Jake accessories that are still yet to be released.
- 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06X Track Car Concept – This standard Z06 is stuffed with SCCA-approved roll cage, racing seats, harness and a fire suppression system. Carbon fiber body panels and a polycarbonate rear window allow this car to just zip right on by its competition (Dodge Viper ACR-X).
In addition to that, local aftermarket vendors brought their very own dubbed up Corvettes to attract guests to their booths. Much like Michigan’s Specter Werkes, who brought their all-new C6-based Corvette GTR, equipped with lots of custom bodywork and exposed carbon fiber.
A great show and an abundance of Corvettes, nonetheless!
