The Chevy Camaro was definitely the darling of SEMA 2009, and it looks like this last pony car to the party might steal a few hearts this year too. GM invited us out to Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Pahrump to preview some of their show cars, and along with the similar Corvette Z06X, they had this Camaro – the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SSX Track Car Concept.

As Chevy describes it: “the Camaro SSX Track Car is a concept for transforming a street Camaro SS into a closed-course track car, and a showcase for new performance parts.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

The Camaro SSX Track Car gets many of the same changes seen in the Z06X, some of them straight out of the GMPP catalog, and others pure racing touches. The white and black paint scheme and carbon fiber accents look great on this show car, and the suspension tweaks that come as part of the package will probably make it go as look as it looks.

And who wouldn’t like a lighter Camaro? That carbon fiber and the deletion of some standard equipment should shave a few hundred pounds from the Camaro’s bulk. Like the Zo6X, Chevy was tight-lipped about production, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed. Pics and press release after the break.
