SEMA 2010-One of several Camaros on display at the Chevy
The Chevrolet Corvette has a certain friend named Jake, and Jake is making a special guest appearance at the SEMA show.
At SEMA, Jake will be plastered all over a 2011 Corvette Grand Sport in black, outside and inside. Certain Jake-logo parts will eventually come to market. For now, Jake's place is with the C6.R race teams and the SEMA show.
Outside the Jake Edition Concept, Jake can be found on the hood, fender, and beneath the hood. The Jake-logo wheel center caps and underhood blanket will be on sale at a later date.
The interior trim and racing pedal kits are sourced from the factory Chevy accessory catalog.
Jake has quickly become, to the Corvette Racing team, what the Cavallino Rampante is to Ferrari. Chevrolet is now recognizing the iconic icon with the 2011 Corvette Jake Edition Concept.
Chevy started with a Grand Sport coupe then set to work adding Jake-themed touches both inside and out. The black paint is offset nicely by the Competition Gray Z06 wheels and GT1 Championship Edition Jake-logo hood graphic. Those wheels also feature Jake center caps, as do the fenders.
One of several Camaros on display at the Chevy booth at SEMA, the Red Flash Camaro Show car is “the opposite of a sleeper.” Inside, the Camaro gets Chevy Accessory pedals and floor mats, while custom touches include red LED lighting and special seats with red stitching.
