Chevrolet finally took the wraps off its 2013 entry into the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Wednesday in Las Vegas. The model had been seen at several tests this past season however Wednesday marked the first time the cars had been shown without a camouflage paint schemes.

The new NASCAR race car closely resembles the all-new rear wheel drive V-8 Chevrolet SS performance sedan that will debut early next year.

“As a passionate race fan, the debut of the SS NASCAR race car is a genuinely exciting moment for me,” said GM North America President Mark Reuss. “With the SS, Chevrolet is delivering a true rear-wheel-drive NASCAR race car that is very closely linked to the performance sedan that will be available for sale, ensuring that our most loyal enthusiasts will have the opportunity to experience the same thrill every day on the open road that our race car drivers enjoy on the track on race day.” MORE>>>
