Chevrolet recently opened a whole new chapter in its storied racing history by unveiling the eagerly anticipated 2013 NASCAR Chevrolet SS race car. Powered by Chevrolet's legendary small block V-8 engine, the rear-wheel drive performance sedan will be the newest entry in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. It will make its debut at SpeedWeek in Dayton, Fla.
The new Chevrolet SS is the next in a long line of famed nameplates that Chevrolet has campaigned in NASCAR, replacing the Impala which scored 151 wins from 1959-1964 and 2007-2012.
The Chevrolet SS will be derivative of the award-winning glbal rear-wheel-drive architecture that spawns performance vehicles like the Camaro and Holden's upcoming VF Commodore. The limited production of the Chevrolet SS will be a 2014 model that will arrive in showrooms in late 2013. It is the first time in 17 years that Chevy is going to offer a rear-wheel-drive sedan for sale in the United States.
The SS (Super Sport) designation on high-performance models of some of its most enduring nameplates. The SS designation was first seen on the 1957 Corvette prototype race car built under the guidance of Zora Arkus-Duntov with the plan to enter the Le Mans 24 hour race.
