Chevy has unveiled the new Camaro Turbo AutoX concept, which adds a performance suspension, upgraded braking system, air intake and exhaust system to the 2.0L powered Camaro.

"This concept pushes Camaro in a new direction, integrating new performance parts that make the most of the turbocharged Camaro's lightweight dynamics," said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.

The Camaro Turbo AutoX concept gets the Chevrolet Performance suspension lowering kit, which includes stiffer springs and specifically tuned dampers and lowers the ride height up to 0.75 inch. It is matched with a concept "plus performance" handling kit including larger stabilizer bars and stiffer suspension links. A concept strut tower brace under the hood provides additional chassis stiffness. The whole system contributes to improved roll stiffness and quicker turn-in performance.

The concept rides on 20-inch aluminum wheels and its stopping power has increased thanks to the upgraded front brake kit, that features six-piston calipers and 370mm, two-piece slotted rotors. A cold-air intake system has been fitted to the 2.0L turbo engine and a calibration upgrade to its controller optimizes performance across the rpm band. Lastly a performance exhaust system with a polished 4-inch outlet offers a throatier exhaust note and reduces backpressure by approximately 14 percent.
