The Chevy SEMA Design Awards recognize elite builders who showcase the most outstanding combinations of innovation, creativity, personalization and performance in their vehicle and product designs. In addition to builders’ submissions, GM designers tour the SEMA displays to identify the best project vehicle builds.
Assessed and selected by Chevy designers, the 2021 Chevy SEMA Design Awards have four categories:
“It’s always inspiring to be at SEMA where we see many of the country’s top builders take our Chevy products and turn them into personal statements,” said Phil Zak, executive design director, Chevrolet. “The creativity and craftsmanship displayed in these vehicles is outstanding. Chevrolet’s SEMA Design Awards are our way to recognize the ingenuity, invested time and passion that these builders have for Chevrolet, and it’s a pleasure to award their accomplishments and hear their stories.”
Chevy SEMA Design Awards submissions are accepted until Oct. 22. SEMA Show exhibitors can visit www.ChevySEMA.com for registration details and requirements, along with build qualification information.
Entry qualifications include, but are not limited to, preserving the Chevrolet bowtie emblem on the front of the vehicle, along with propulsion from a Chevy gas or diesel engine. GM electric or non-competitive electric powertrains are also eligible. Additionally, participants must submit in-progress photos or renderings of their vehicle, along with photos of the completed build.
DETROIT – Chevrolet took over the Raceway at Belle Isle Park today to celebrate Corvette Racing’s dominant 2020 season by introducing the 2022 Corvette Stingray IMSA GTLM Championship Edition.
In left-hand drive markets, Chevrolet will release just 1,000 of these distinctively styled Corvettes, which resemble the No. 3 and No. 4 Corvette C8.R race cars. These special edition supercars were designed to commemorate the mid-engine Corvette C8.R’s inaugural season. In 2020, Corvette Racing swept IMSA’s sports car championship series, taking the Manufacturers, Drivers and Team titles.
Corvette Racing’s Jordan Taylor and Antonio Garcia drove coupe and convertible No. 3 Corvette Stingray IMSA GTLM Championship Editions across Belle Isle’s MacArthur Bridge and onto the track. Teammate Nick Tandy led on track in a Corvette Stingray convertible, the official pace car of the 2021 Detroit Grand Prix. Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner followed the group in the No. 4 Corvette C8.R race car.
“Racing has been part of the Corvette’s DNA from nearly the beginning,” said Laura Klauser, General Motors Sports Car Program manager. “Both the Corvette Stingray and C8.R have seen tremendous success capitalizing on the benefits of a mid-engine platform – and we’re just getting started.”
Corvette Racing shined during IMSA’s 2020 sports car championship series, capturing six victories and seven pole positions, and setting the fastest class race laps in six events. During the 2020 series, Chevrolet won the GT Manufacturers title – its 13th since 2001. Taylor, Garcia and the No. 3 Corvette C8.R crew won the GTLM Drivers and Team championships.
The C8.R races on home turf in Detroit for the first time Saturday, June 12. The Chevrolet Sports Car Classic will air live at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
IMSA GTLM Championship Edition
Additional exterior content (varies by market):
Inside, the Special Edition features a Strike Yellow and Sky Cool Gray cabin that mimics the exterior yellow and gray racing theme, with standard GT2 seats (Competition Sport seats are available), along with yellow seat belts and a C8.R Special Edition numbered plaque.
Each car comes with a custom-fitted indoor car cover rendered to the appearance of the No. 3 or No. 4 Corvette C8.R race car, per each Special Edition’s color and graphic scheme.
The IMSA GTLM Championship Edition package starts at $6,595. The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price excludes tax.
