Well, the SEMA mess has well and truly begun. Every year, an increasing number of automakers flock to the Las Vegas auto show, bringing accessories and concept vehicles that are both awesome as well as occasionally questionable.

Chevy will bring an RS concept of the new Spark to SEMA, signaling that its styling package will be applied to the brand's smallest vehicle in the near future. We can expect the usual stuff in a production Spark RS – larger wheels, a slightly sportier cabin, a more aggressive body kit, and a small drop in ride height – but for the concept, Chevy wasn't restrained by things like budget. The front splitter, and sill extensions, foglight surrounds, and rear bumper insert are all finished in carbon fiber. The 17-inch alloys are apparently inspired by the Corvette Z06's Z07 package, while the Dark Liquid Switchblade Silver paint is broken up only by a driver's-side stripe.

The company is also using SEMA to show its new Red Line accessories, features both concept and production parts for the Trax, Camaro, Malibu, Colorado, and Sierra. Every vehicle gets Enhanced Silver Metallic paint, a charcoal finish on the roof, satin graphite/red graphics, black/red badge kits, and aside from the Colorado, tinted lamps.

Individual mods for the Trax include relatively simple tweaks, including new 18-inch wheels, blacked-out bowtie badges, a lowered ride height, and custom badging. It's a similar story on the Malibu, except that its 19-inch wheels are a smidge larger, and its lowered ride height is the result of a concept kit. The first concept based on the new Camaro opts for 20-inch wheels, while adding a few more performance items. The ride height has been lowered, there's a new air intake system, and an upgraded brake package. Chevy has also replaced the front upper and lower grilles inserts with red accents.

On the pickup side of the coin, the Colorado gets 18-inch wheels, new intake and exhaust systems, Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude tires, and flared wheelarches. The Silverado gets similar intake and exhaust upgrades, as well as the largest wheels of them all, with 22s at all four corners. The full-size truck also gets a Brembo brake package, while every vehicle, aside from the Camaro, gets Thule roof-mounted accessories.

You can check out all six concepts in the gallery above, and then be sure to keep an eye open for live images from the floor of the 2015 SEMA show, slated to open next month.

CHEVROLET RED LINE CONCEPTS SHOWCASE LATEST ACCESSORIES

Themed collection highlights production, concept components

DETROIT – Blending equal parts style and functionality, Chevrolet's Red Line Series concept vehicles demonstrate the lifestyle and personalization possibilities of the brand's latest vehicles – all with a street-smart aesthetic.

Chevrolet previewed the Red Line concepts today, including Trax, Malibu, Camaro, Colorado and Silverado 1500 models, ahead of their public debut at the SEMA Show, on November 3. The preview also included the sporty Spark RS concept.

"The Chevrolet Red Line Series concepts integrate accessories that offer greater personalization choices," said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. "Each vehicle wears production and concept accessories thematically linked under the Red Line Series banner. We look forward to gauging public reaction at the SEMA Show and other venues."

All of the production and concept accessories were developed in Chevrolet's design studio with the vehicles themselves. The production accessories will be available as the 2016 models arrive in dealer showrooms.

"Chevrolet Accessories bring value and the added security of knowing the parts are designed, engineered, tested and backed by the same team that developed the vehicles," said Roger McCormack, director, Accessories & Performance Parts Marketing.

Spark RS concept
Built to showcase dynamic appearance of the all-new, 2016 Chevrolet Spark, this concept applies the sporty RS treatment that has distinguished Camaro, Sonic and Cruze production models.

The Spark RS features a concept carbon-fiber front splitter, rocker extensions and a carbon-fiber rear-lower extension. Seventeen-inch wheels inspired by the Corvette Z07 fill out the wheel openings, while a lowered suspension gives the car an aggressive stance. The exterior is finished in Dark Liquid Switchblade Silver, with custom graphic accents.

"Every Chevrolet has the DNA of the Corvette and the Spark RS concept shows how the brand's smallest car can deliver big on personalization," said Todd Parker, director of design, Global Chevrolet. "It advances the RS heritage and interprets it in an entirely new way."

The Spark RS concept is the result of a collaboration between Chevrolet's design studios in North America and Korea. Chevrolet is gauging public opinion of the car in its evaluation for possible production.
