2017 Camaro SS Slammer Concept is all about Stance

Inspired. That’s how Chevrolet designers want Gen 6 Camaro owners and other enthusiasts to feel when they view the all-new 2017 Camaro SS Slammer concept.

It’s a customised vision of the sixth-generation Camaro, with expressive cues, one-off custom features and an asphalt-hugging stance made all the more dramatic by its Dazzling Black exterior.

Influenced by contemporary hot-rodding trends, the Camaro SS Slammer’s low-slung stance is set off by custom 22-inch front and 24-inch rear chrome wheels. The Camaro’s body was modified to accommodate the large rolling stock, which measure 245/30R22 in front and 275/25R24 in the rear. An air-adjustable suspension helps deliver the slammed stance.

The dramatic appearance also incorporates a number of Chevrolet Accessories, including a ground effects kit, black bowtie emblems and Camaro fender badges. The headlamp and taillamp lenses are tinted.

The Dazzling Black exterior colour is the result of a unique tri-coat process that incorporates gloss white flakes to add depth and sparkle when viewed from different angles. It also contrasts strikingly with the car’s Adrenaline Red interior.

Additional upgrades include:

  • Custom-painted Chevrolet Performance engine cover
  • Custom close-outs in the engine compartment panels
  • Chevrolet Performance Brembo front brake kit

The Camaro Slammer’s power comes from the LT1 6.2L V-8 rated at 455 horsepower and 455 lb.-ft. of torque, matched with the six-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Match.

For better engine breathing and a deeper growl, Chevrolet Performance’s axle-back, stainless steel exhaust system was installed. It reduces backpressure up to 25 percent over the stock system, while offering a great performance sound and premium appearance, including polished 4-inch tips. An Active Noise Cancellation calibration is also included for vehicles with the Bose® audio system. It is tuned to let the exhaust growl come through loud and clear, while eliminating undesirable drone.
