Following yesterday's news that Holden will blow the covers off the next generation of its Commodore sedan in Australia on February 10, today we learn that the car's American sibling, the limited production 2014 Chevrolet SS, will be revealed just before the Sprint Unlimited race on February 16 in Daytona International Speedway’s fan zone.
The announcement for Chevy's new sports sedan came via Jim Campbell, Chevrolet’s U.S. vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports, according to Autonews.
“This is the first time that we’ve done this in decades, where we’re going to introduce a whole new model at a racetrack,” said Cambell. “We’ve done special editions at racetracks, but many decades since we’ve done this with a whole new model.”
The rear-wheel drive, V8-powered SS, which also lends its looks (with some imagination) to GM's NASCAR competitor, will be built alongside its Commodore sibling in Australia, with sales to start before the end of the year.
