Jay Leno Chevrolet Camaro Concept

SEMA 2009 Jay Leno Chevrolet Camaro Concept

There was a lot of stuff at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this past October.  I watched a lot of videos and read to many articles of manufactures saying they are coming out with the latest and greatest.  The one thing that caught my eye and I followed throughout the show was the Jay Leno Camaro concept.  (I wish I could have been there to see it in person, but  Las Vegas and myself have a love hate relationship).

The Jay Leno Camaro was one of the most radical looking Chevrolet Camaro concepts at SEMA this year – when it first was spied the car bloggers where going crazy about this being the style and new look for the Z28.  As Jay Leno stepped out of the car everyone was eager to hear what the news was.

Jay announced that his Camaro is  a twin-turbocharged version of the 3.6L V6 found in the Camaro LS and LT models. The Turbonetics T-3 turbochargers take horsepower up to 425. When the turbochargers aren’t being used, there is virtually no loss in the fuel-economy of the base 3.6L V6 engine.  So no this is not the Z28.  Many say this is the Camaro version to compete head to head with the Ford Mustang EcoBoost.

Additional touches to Jay Leno’s Camaro include Brembo six-piston brake package, pedders coil-over lowering kit, new front fascia with custom fog lamps and integral brake cooling vents and air extractor-style hood.  I think this is a good-looking Camaro and something I would consider due to the V8 being a little too much for me but you still get the same gas mileage as a standard V6.  We will see if we will be seeing of these coming into production.   Fingers crossed.
