To put together the Impala Blackout concept for SEMA, Chevrolet didn't need to go much further than its accessories catalog. The in-house connection is what could make it possible for Chevy to get a production version of the Blackout into dealers this model year, with its few bits of chrome trim and dark detailing on the 19-inch aluminum wheels set into an abyss of gloss black paint, black Bowtie, grille surround, rear spoiler and mirror caps.

With 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque pumping out of a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 and starting at $78,995, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is a performance powerhouse for its price. However, not everyone wants to drop that much cash on a sports coupe, especially when the base 2015 'Vette is a pretty potent package already... for tens of thousands of dollars less.
