My first impression of the SS in front view and 3/4 perspective was that the design was a bit of a let-down. Not terrible, but not a face you'd fall in love with at first sight, either.

Forgive my crappy Photoshop skills, but here are some concepts for discussion. Nothing too dramatic, and all more or less doable depending on how the Chevy emblem mounts to the grille. (If it's a bow-tie shaped mount molded into the grille, it would present some challenges.)

#1) Replacing the existing bowtie with a much smaller version. Causes the car to look a little wider, and shifts the visual emphasis away from the Chevy logo. Offset SS logo because for $45k it better say "SS" in the other guys rear view.




#2) Nothing but SS. Probably my favorite.



#3) Body Color-keyed front bumper insert. Adds visual weight to the front, adds impression of width, streamlines the design by reintegrating the bumper insert.



#4 & 5) Variations

I like what's behind door 3,4 and 5. I know the SRT Chargers have the black fascia delete to break up the black hole in front. Not sure on the hood vents. Cool renderings though.

The hood vents originally were unintentional... I had dragged a little line of highlight off of the grille and it got parked right where the left vent is in the rendering. Then I kind of liked it and put the right one on. Not really an option in real life but it does add some interest.

Put those black wheels on 3,4 or and 5; YEP thats me! I like both sets of wheels, but the darker ones grab me more. The hoods vent are more subtle than on the G8. It gives it a more agressive look. I could roll with that too. Nice

The black wheels definitely make it look like it's done f'ing around. I was thinking more of rearward facing vents inset into the hood rather than forward facing scoops.

Awesome chops, definitely needs the smaller Chevy logo and the SS is a real cool idea. Holden/HSV wheels are an awesome touch.

Thanks for doing the photochops, good to finally see what that crossbar looks like color matched.

I'm not liking how the color matched cross bar looks, makes the front end look too busy for my liking.


But this slammed Chevy SS looks sick!.....

Nice! Pretty much everything looks better slammed. I did a 2" drop on my S430 and it was sinister. Kinda messed up the ride and the alignment and caused more problems than it was worth but I loved the look. I do think the grille on the SS needs something on it though.

If it was up to me I would have that black cross bar on the bumper cut out leaving just the black mesh like thing behind it and on the smaller upper grille to be the only thing.

Unfortunately there's an actual bumper under there that might come in handy in a collision :)

Thanks. She's been a good car. I bought her for $21k last year with 34,000 miles on the clock and absolutely flawless condition. Prior owner was a snowbird who wintered in Daytona. I had to do some gender reassignment surgery... an AMG body kit, wheels and tires, and a drop. Here's how it looked when I bought it. Pretty sexy, huh!
