Chevrolet brought a one-off Camaro ZL1 to the SEMA Show this year designed in partnership with race car driver Tony Stewart. 

The car you see here was the result. It got a custom gray metallic paint accented with tribal markings and “Smoke” graphics in flat red with silver pinstripes. Continuing that theme, Chevrolet also traded the car’s optional halo headlights for red versions, giving the car an especially sinister look.

It also gets a set of black custom wheels with red accents to match the rest of the car. Those colors continue for the interior, which gets black leather seats with suede inserts and scarlet red stitching as well as Stewart’s signature embroidered into those seats. The same suede material also accents the door panels and steering wheel while the gauge cluster is surrounded by a piano black finish.

Nothing changes under the hood where the same 6.2-liter supercharged LSA V8 makes 580 horsepower for a four-second 0-60 mph sprint and a 184 mph top speed. Of course, it’s not a bad thing that the car hasn’t been modified for further performance. The ZL1 shocked drivers with its handling when it debuted, thanks in no small part to its magnetic ride suspension system.
