These new Red Accent and Black Accent editions are based on the new, sixth-generation 2016 Camaro SS. The former starts out as a Camaro SS convertible, done up in silver with red trim inside and out. It's got a leather interior, custom grille, hash-mark fender graphics, blacked-out bowtie badge, and 20-inch alloys. Even the engine is visually enhanced with a red cover. While it was at it, Chevy also dropped the suspension and fitted a new air intake and Brembo front brakes.
Joining it is the Black Accent concept, based on a red Camaro SS coupe. As its name suggests, it's got a blacked-out aero kit, bowtie badge, and fuel cover, along with darkened tailllamps and satin black stripes. It also gets a black leather interior and its own set of 20-inch wheels, along with the aforementioned lowering kit, Brembo front brakes, air intake, and red engine cover.
The Accent concepts are designed to showcase the extent of the accessories Chevy is offering for the new Camaro, and will be showcased at SEMA alongside modified versions of the Spark, Trax, Malibu, Colorado, and Sierra. Feel free to scope out the gallery above and the details in the press release below.
Red, Black Accent cars showcase new accessories, preview production packages
DETROIT – Chevrolet introduced two customized 2016 Camaro SS concepts that illustrate the possibilities enabled by the new portfolio of Gen Six Camaro accessories and performance parts.
Dubbed Red Accent and Black Accent for their respective design themes, each uses components Chevrolet will offer during the first model year of the new Camaro.
"These are great-looking examples of what customers can do to personalize their new Gen Six Camaro," said Roger McCormack, director, Accessories & Performance Parts Marketing. "This will be the largest-ever portfolio of Camaro accessories and performance parts. The possibilities are limited only by imagination."
The new portfolio of Camaro accessories and performance parts includes:
- Three aluminum wheel designs, in multiple finishes

- A blade-style rear spoiler and ground effects kit, each offered in 10 colors
- Four exterior graphics packages, offered in multiple colors, including," rally stripe," front-fender "hash mark," racing stripe designs and a body-side "spear" graphic
- Interior trim kits, including knee pads and door accent trim, offered in multiple colors
- Performance exhaust kits for SS and V-6-equipped LT models (not compatible with the dual-mode exhaust system)
- Suspension lowering kits for SS and LT models (not compatible with SS models equipped with available Magnetic Ride Control)
- Brembo® performance front brake packages for SS and LT models
- Performance air intake kit for the SS
- Engine covers for SS and V-6-equipped LT models.
Customers can view many of the accessories on the new Camaro using the online Camaro Visualizer.
"All of the exterior accessories enhance the Camaro's already strong design, as they were developed in the Chevrolet Performance Studio alongside the production model itself," said Adam Barry, senior creative designer, Chevrolet Camaro. "That means customers can personalize their new Gen Six Camaro with parts that are styled, engineered and aero-tested by the same team that designed the car."
Camaro SS Red Accent Package concept
The adage less is more applies to this tasteful-yet-dynamic Camaro SS convertible. Its Switchblade Silver Metallic exterior is accented with red accessory trim and complemented by an Adrenaline Red leather-trimmed interior.
The exterior accessories include a lower grille with red inserts, red "hash mark" fender graphics, black bowtie emblems and 20-inch 5-Spoke Gloss Black wheels with Red Outline Stripe. Under the hood is a red-accented engine cover.
The cabin features an interior illumination kit with red aluminum door inserts, knee pads in red, sport pedal covers, and premium SS-logo carpeted floor mats and center console cover.
In addition to the Red Accent appearance enhancements, Chevrolet included several integrated performance kits including lowered suspension, air intake and Brembo front brakes with six-piston calipers.
Camaro SS Black Accent Package concept
The Red Hot Camaro SS coupe with an added Black Accent package creates a decidedly more "tuner" aesthetic. The aggressive design uses black ground effects, darkened taillamps, satin black rally stripes, black bowtie emblems and black 20-inch 5 Split Spoke Low Gloss Black Wheels. There's also a concept black fuel door cover.
The performance suspension lowering kit and Brembo front brake package – with red calipers – completes the street-smart stance of the Camaro. Under the hood is the new performance air intake and a red accented engine cover.
The Jet Black leather-trimmed interior is personalized with black interior trim and knee pads, SS-logo premium carpeted floor mats, a suede console lid with the Chevrolet Performance logo and red stitching, and sport pedal covers.
The Red Accent and Black Accent Camaro SS concepts will be displayed at the 2015 SEMA Show, in Las Vegas, along with more than 20 Chevrolet vehicles with production and concept accessories and performance parts.
