Yesterday, Chevrolet announced that it will bring top-tuned versions of the Corvette and Camaro to the 2010 SEMA show and it is now time to get a closer look at the modified ‘Vettes.

We’ll start with the Z06X Track Car, which is a four-wheeled display for General Motors performance parts that can turn the Corvette from a top road performer into a track animal. The vehicle has been developed in collaboration with Pratt and Miller, Chevrolet’s American LeMans Series partner.

The modification program was focused on cutting weight, as this enhances performance in all areas, including acceleration, braking and cornering. Thus, the car was fitted with car multiple carbon fiber body parts, which also enhance its aerodynamics. The list of carbon fiber exterior elements includes a front lip spoiler, a hood dome, side skirts and a generously-sized rear wing.

The car has also been packed with other motorsport equipment, such as a rollcage and a set of carbon-ceramic brakes that are as fade-free as possible. An important part of the performance parts installed on the car are already available for purchase.

The second Corvette concept being displayed at SEMA is the Jake Edition, which showcases the Jake skull mascot. Jake was born as a small logo on racing ‘Vettes back in 2005 and is considered by GM to be representative for the Corvette Racing team’s efforts and victories.

The concept is packed with special accessories, such as exterior decals and interior Jake-branded console trimming and floor mats. These will be offered to customers in the future. The vehicles rides on Z06 rims that use a Competition Gray finish.
