2016 SEMA Show: 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Slammer Concept Looks Smashing

Here we go again with the same North American based carmaker Chevrolet, displaying another cool concept at the 2016 SEMA Show, taking place these days in the gorgeous Las Vegas. It is all about the retro-like Chevelle Slammer Concept.

Even if we are looking here at an old model which ruled the American auto industry between the 1960s and the 1970s, this rugged boy here comes with a lot of updated high-tech goodies.

At the exterior, Chevrolet has brought the old-shine back, the model getting ready to face its audience all-dressed in a pure black body wrap and adding other aggressive styling bits that perfectly replicate the car`s vintage look.

Besides the new aero styling bits, the 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Slammer also looks fresh with the new set of polished 18- and 20-inch front and rear, which look extremely hot with the new air suspension, also providing a lower stance.

The interior has been painyed in Adrenaline Red and perfectly complements the black exterior, adding sports seats and other classic features.

The car`s main highlight is the powertrain under the hood. The 1969 Chevelle comes with a new LT376/535 crate engine and is based on the Corvette`s LT1. This beast here has been also fitted with new camshafts and heads, adding 75 horsepower to the overall 535 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. the engine is hooked to the new SuperMatic 4L75-E electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission which returns an impressive 650 lb-ft of torque.

Speaking about the car`s power, Rocko Parker, Chevrolet Performance Parts engineer, has stated that “The LT376/535 crate engine represents the best of Chevrolet`s performance engineering. Adhering to the same standards as the development of production engines, the LT376/535 offers tremendous power with the drivability expected with a new vehicle. It`s the best of both worlds.”
