Top 5 Chevrolet Camaro Show Cars at the 2014 SEMA Show

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 11/11/2014 Erick Ayapana

As expected, there was a sea of Chevrolet Camaros at the 2014 SEMA Show. While we saw plenty of current and first-gen models, the second-generation Camaro appeared to be well represented, more so than in the past. In fact, two "split bumper" Camaros are featured in this Camaro highlights feature, as well as a current-gen Camaro SS packed with lots of Z/28 goodies and stuff.

More from the 2014 SEMA Show:

1969 Chevrolet Camaro by Chris Holstrom Concepts

The metal work is flawless -- the body panels, interior toggle switches, air vents, and engine bay, which houses an 850-hp supercharged LS V-8, are all top-notch work. With all that power, the super-wide 335-width tires are a smart idea, as is the beefy Baer brake setup.

Chevrolet "Ultimate Track" Camaro SS

Chevy invited us to a fun pre-SEMA track day in the "Ultimate Track" Camaro SS, which was loaded with lots of Z/28 stuff. It sports the Z/28's fancy suspension with the DSSV dampers, aero kit, helical differential, and exhaust system. It also gets a few 1LE items (wheels and strut tower brace), along with the ZL1's brake system. Finally, the LS3 V-8 was upgraded with new camshafts and cylinder heads, boosting power to 456 hp, 30 more than stock. The result is an extremely capable track car that is planted and rotates nicely through the corners thanks to that fantastic differential.

1969 Chevrolet Camaro "Hellfire"

The red and black color scheme looks menacing and the Lingenfelter-tuned, supercharged eight-cylinder is pumping out 953 hp and 970 lb-ft of torque.

1970 Chevrolet Camaro

The Ron Francis booth featured this 1970 split-bumper Camaro with a meticulous dark blue and silver paint job and tasteful chrome exterior bits. The interior looks great, too, with nice bolstered seats and leather dash with contrast stitching. This Camaro makes around 700 hp from its 6.2-liter, supercharged LSA V-8, though I'm torn about that engine cover.

1970 Chevrolet Camaro "Rampage"

The wide-body panels are all carbon fiber and the chassis features a fancy cantilevered suspension setup. The LS7 is tuned to produce 750 hp and its low stance and gold Jongbloed racing wheels look fantastic.

In fact, as part of the judging panel for the Gran Turismo Awards, we picked the GoPro "Rampage" Camaro as the Best Domestic Car. There were five categories total (Best Asian Import Car, Best Truck, Best Hot Rod, and Best European Car) and game creator Kazunori Yamauchi was tasked with crowning the Best In Show from the bunch. His choice? The "Rampage" Camaro! Congrats to builder Jeremy Gerber and his crew from the Roadster Shop for the big win.
