The kaleidoscopic Color Run concept points to the Spark's use as the pace car for the nationwide series of 5K runs. On the show floor it was decorated with Z-Spec bits as well – white wheels and custom seats – but even so, it can't be fully appreciated until it hits the race course and is doused throughout the route with corn starch. The Techno Pink Spark gives a nod to the American Cancer Society with a pink headliner and pink accents outside and in.
At the other end is the Carbon Flash Metallic and Bahia Red Spark Sinister concept, wearing upgrades like fender flares over 18-inch wheels, a lowered stance, and rear spoiler and dual exhaust tips. Details on the quartet are below, and all have been captured in the gallery of high-res photos above. Chevrolet Spark Concepts at SEMA

'The Color Run' Spark
Chevrolet Spark is the official pace car of The Color Run – a popular, nationwide series of urban 5K races in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors for each kilometer – and it leads the pack in a colorful display of its own. A custom, multihued graphics package gives the Spark a post-race appearance while a Chevrolet Accessories ground effects kit and Z-Spec grille give it a sportier profile. The production 15-inch split spoke wheels are painted white, but don't stay that way once color-dousing participants shower this one-of-a-kind pace car with colored corn starch along the route. Inside, custom seat with The Color Run graphics are featured, along with Chevrolet Accessories stainless steel pedal covers and sill plates.
'Pink Out' Spark Cancer Awareness Concept
Chevrolet takes a stand against breast cancer and supports the American Cancer Society with a Techno Pink Spark that's adorned with pink ribbon graphics. It also wears Chevrolet Accessories ground effects and a Z-spec grille. Inside, pink accent colors – including a pink suede headliner, pillar trim, instrument panel trim and accent piping – round out the cause-inspired theme.
