Chevrolet will bring two exciting concepts to the SEMA show which kicks off tomorrow in Las Vegas. Joining the Jake Grand Sport special edition we saw in the GM SEMA preview video is one of the most exciting concepts we’ve seen from Team Corvette: the 2011 Corvette Z06X Track Car Concept.

The Chevrolet Jake concept is powered by an LS3, 6.2-liter V8 engine with a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission. The Z06X concept is based on the Corvette Z06 with the 1LZ equipment package, along with the Z07 Performance Package and CFZ Carbon Fiber Package. The 2011 Z06 with the Z07 package creates the lightest production Corvette and includes carbon ceramic brakes and Magnetic Ride Control, while the CFZ package offers body components that enhance aerodynamic down force on the race track, including a front splitter.

The Z06X Concept features competition-oriented modifications including: an adjustable carbon fiber rear wing, a polycarbonate rear window, roll cage, racing seat and safety harness, racing wheels, suspension enhancements – including coil-over struts with fully adjustable camber plates – racing-spec cooling system and more. The radio, carpeting and sound-deadening material are also removed.

The all new  Jake Edition  Corvette concept  is  based on the Corvette Grand Sport platform and gets some of its design cues from Corvette Racing’s mascot, “Jake”.   The “Jake” skull mascot first began being used by Corvette Racing’s Team in 2005 to symbolized its competitive attitude.  Since then,  the symbol has grown to represent the determination and victories of the team.

Performance:
• LS7 7.0L V-8 engine and Tremec six-speed manual transmission
• Low-restriction air intake system
• High-capacity radiator and enhanced cooling system
• New-for-2011 Z07 Performance Package, feature Brembo carbon ceramic brake rotors and special brake pads
• Lightweight racing wheels in black; 19-inch (front) and 20-inch (rear)
