start from thebeginning

First staged in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show is the largest auto show in North America and has been held more times than any other auto exposition on the continent. This year marks the 110th edition of the Chicago Auto Show.

    Chicago audiences had the opportunity to view the handsome Chevrolet SS (Super Sport) concept car. Painted Victory Red, the sporty high-performance 4-door family sedan had rear-wheel drive, and an all-aluminum 430 horsepower 6.0-liter V-8. It also was equipped with high-performance suspension and six-piston brakes. The fastback body had a short front overhang, but wide, muscular fenders with side gills. Powerful wheel arches housed 21-inch front and 22-inch rear aluminum wheels wearing BF Goodrich performance tires. A stainless steel panel surrounded traditional round taillights, and popping through the lower rear fascia were dual exhaust pipes. Built to seat five, the off-white leather interior was mixed with a woven, hounds-tooth check material, reminiscent of past Chevy SS cars.
