Chevrolet Jeff Gordon SS Performance Sedan Concept

Compared to the stock Chevrolet SS sports sedan, Jeff Gordon’s version looks much meaner (in a good way). Somehow it comes off as more butch than the upgrades would suggest, almost as if it has a wide-body kit (compare the Chevrolet Jeff Gordon SS Performance Sedan Concept to the near-production car). But Chevy says that the exterior upgrades are limited to a satin-red exterior, a more aggressive custom front grille, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler and custom-finished 20-inch wheels. Of course, it’s been lowered, which not only enhances the handling, but also its stance.

This SS is equipped with high-performance brakes, Chevy says, and a Borla performance exhaust system helps the engine exhale more freely. Perforated suede seat inserts, embroidered head rests, a flat-bottom steering wheel and a Chevrolet Accessories pedal kit round out the package. Everything else remains unchanged, including the LS3 6.2-liter V8, which pumps out 415 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque through a six-speed automatic transmission with TAPShift manual control. This leads us to one question: where’s the full-manual transmission?
