Chevy SEMA.jpg

Chevrolet has revealed on its Facebook page a selection of vehicles that will be on display at the SEMA Show in just a few weeks time. These aren’t the “official” Chevy SEMA Show cars (those ones tend to be much more tame, with a near-production look), but we have to think Chevy will again be putting the focus on these two models – although we’d really like to see some custom Cruzes.

Three Silverado HD models are being built, one as a “Utility Hauler” by Impulse Marketing, while the other two will be off-road themed trucks built by Ldrship Designs and Skyjacker Suspensions. All three will be based off the new 2011 Silverado HD.

Those three may, however, be overshadowed by what it shaping up to be another year-of-the-Camaro at SEMA. Chevy’s partners are planning a total of eight custom Camaros – which may be joined by more official Camaros, plus what will no doubt be dozens of other ones at different booths throughout the show. Five of the Camaros will be SS models, built by Delta Tech Industries (white and blue), Mummbles Marketing (chocolate), Raging Bull Marketing (red), Revolution Styling (gold), Street Concepts (purple) and All Star Performance (blue). These will be joined by two V6 models including one by GM Addition (silver) and a turbocharged V6 model from Unrestricted Motorsports (white).

We’ll await word from Chevy on just what their official cars will be, but in the mean time head over to their Facebook page and vote for your favorite. And be sure to check out AutoGuide’s SEMA Preview page, with live coverage of the 2010 SEMA Show starting November 2nd.

aLL STaR Performance dropped us a quick note to reveal their fully rendered Chevy Camaro that is set to debut in just a few more weeks at the 2010 SEMA Show. We’ve been teased with a rendering of the Camaro under wraps, but now we’ve got the full, clear picture of their project. It looks like Gene Marcel will be taking a more clean and conservative route with the vehicle, accenting the Camaro’s natural lines rather than transforming them.

Marcel’s Camaro will sport a nice clean blue paint job courtesy of Dupont while a set of Forgestar wheels wrapped with Falken Tires help set off the exterior. Air Lift Suspension definitely gives the Camaro the mean profile it needs to intimidate, and it’s obvious there will be a massive front mount intercooler to go with that Lysholm Supercharger. All in all, just a cleanly built Camaro showcasing some real American muscle.

Also of note, GM has launched a voting contest up on their Facebook page, where the winning Chevrolet Camaro and Chevrolet Silverado HD will get their day in the spotlight at the 2010 SEMA Show. So help pick the winner by voting for your favorite Camaro and Silverado HD render.

Design-house Gurnade has just teased us with another of its 2010 SEMA projects. This time it’s a Chevrolet Camaro built by Gene Marcel on behalf of aLL STaR Performance. This won’t be Gene’s first stab at building a SEMA project, having done successful ones in the past including a Volvo S40 that we saw ourselves in the Status Racing booth back in 2006 and a Honda Fit recently in 2009.

His 2011 Chevrolet Camaro will truly have an all star cast of products starting with a supercharger from Lysholm under the hood. The exterior will receive plenty of toys from Extreme Dimensions, Air Lift Suspension, Forgestar Wheels and Falken Tires. On the inside it looks like Gene will be gearing up with Status Racing again, STACK, Autometer and custom interior from Trent’s Trick Upholstery. On the outside the Camaro will be painted with a custom blend from Dupont.

We’re sure more exciting SEMA 2010 leaks will be coming soon and we’ll be sure to be one of the first to report them.

Press release available after the break.
