An all-new race car determined to take the lead.

Introducing the SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup SeriesTM

Chevrolet has already claimed 701 NASCAR® wins, and the announcement of the new 2013 NASCAR Chevrolet SS race car gives hope to fans for many more victories to come.

The new race car will debut at the 2013 Daytona SpeedWeeks in February and is the newest entry in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. The SS will be replacing Impala in this series — and with our legendary racers behind the wheel — we believe it will live up to Impala’s impressive 151 total wins.

The 2013 Chevrolet SS will be based on the 2014 Chevrolet SS performance sedan, which tears into dealer showrooms in late 2013. This limited-production model will be powered by the legendary small block V8 engine and features a rear-wheel-drive architecture — the same architecture that spawns performance vehicles like the Chevrolet Camaro. It marks the first time in 17 years that Chevrolet will offer a rear-wheel-drive performance sedan for sale in the United States.

With such a rich racing history, Chevrolet and racing fans alike are eagerly anticipating the debut of the 2013 Chevrolet SS. And the buzz on the racetrack is just as exciting. We talked to team Chevy driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr., about his first impression of the SS.

DALE EARNHARDT, JR. – NO. 88 HENDRICK MOTORSPORTS CHEVROLET SS:

“I’ve had the opportunity to see the Chevy SS and it’s really an incredibly good-looking race car. It looks like something Chevrolet should be proud of.”

Look for the 2013 Chevrolet SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starting in February of next year — and look for the 2014 Chevrolet SS performance sedan in showrooms beginning late 2013. The SS is about to arrive and is ready to take the racing world by storm.
