This year’s SEMA Show is distant on the calendar, but it’s never too early for builders to release sneak previews of what they’re working on.

Swedish car designer Bo Zolland will be putting his spin on a classic 1968 Chevrolet Camaro for this year’s show, and judging by the pictures, it’s going to be a real winner.

Zolland, who recently renamed his firm from Vizualtech to Zolland Design AB, is previously known for his Jaguar E-Type Growler Concept, that is heading off to limited production as the Lyonheart K. But unlike the classy, clean bodylines we see in the Jaguar concept, this Camaro is all-American mean muscle.

Clearly the custom Camaro will sport a nice widebody with a sleek coat of black paint. It appears that the doors were cut down to lower the beltline; which is contrary to what we see with conventional hot-rod builders that tend to chop the roof of their cars. Nonetheless, from what little we see of this Camaro, it’s already looking great.

Under the hood will be a LS3 V8, supercharged of course, while the factory brakes and suspension have been swapped out for some more modern counterparts. We can’t wait to see this creation in person this year in Las Vegas.
