Each year, the project gets more and more media attention, including print, commercials, and being featured on several websites such as www.Yahoo.com and www.cars.com.  The design evolves and is unique each year, so the anticipation of the reveal is always fun to experience.  I have some insight into this year’s design, and I can promise you, it does not disappoint!

Given the success of the Blackhawks, the car continues to be a hot item of interest each year.  Real Wheels Corporation (RWC) has worked on this project since day one, and continually strives to create a jaw dropping design each year.  As the years go on, the car is outfitted with more and more custom parts, making it a truly unique and eye-catching vehicle.  For 2015, RWC has teamed up with some new manufacturers to give this model a fresh new look.

Alea Leather has signed on to create an entirely custom interior.   Alea Leather is a rapidly growing company, and they are definitely making noise in the automotive industry with their affordable and award winning designs.  The 2015 Blackhawks Camaro features custom seat covers made of top of the line Napa leather and the Blackhawks logo stitched in, as well as leather covering on parts of the dash and steering wheel.   This is a new feature for this year, and it truly fits the style of the car.  MagnaFlow is one of the leading exhaust manufacturers, and has contributed a new exhaust for this project.  MagnaFlow specializes in throaty sound and performance, which gives the Camaro a very aggressive road presence.

ACS composites has worked on previous years’ projects, and again this year in providing the body kit, which showcases new splitters, rockers, and hood insert.  To complement the aggressive body styling, 2Crave has outfitted the Camaro with their newest Mach 8 wheels, 22x9 in the front and 22x10.5 in the rear, creating a staggered look with a 1.5 inch drop.  Varad provided custom lighting behind the grill and throughout the vehicle.  Finally, Estrada Customs of Vernon Hills painted the vehicle in a factory white and red with a true black accent as part the custom design.   Seriously, you will be blown away by the final product!

RealWheels Corporation and Project Manager Cory Polka have again taken on the challenge to make 2014 Chevy Camaro SS Convertible the best Blackhawks car yet.  Cory really wanted this one to be special since the Blackhawks are the defending NHL Champions.  Advance Composite Specialties sent over their latest body kit, the ACS-T4.  This kit included  new rockers and a front splitter, which gave the car the aggressive look they were aiming for.  He added to the aggressive feel by giving the car 22” 2Crave No.14 rims on 245/30/22 tires in front and 295/30/22 tires in the rear. The rims were custom painted with team colors with the team name added on the lip. The  new stance was created with a Ground Force lowering kit.


 

As in previous years, the exterior of the car was painted in the team colors, with a few special accents added in. Estrada Customs took care of the custom painting  using a combination of True Black and Victory Red with a Pure White accent  to bring the car to life.   The Black racing stripe was  added to complete the fierce look and accentuate the new air dam featured in the 2014 model Camaro.


 

Katzkin Leathers created the customer interior using the team colors, featuring a black body with special Crimson Carbon inserts that mimic the teams jersey. Blackhawks logos embroidered on the head and arm rest finish off the seats.   A custom Blackhawks silhouette on both door panels is covered in red suede to give it an awesome embossed 3D look.  With red Varad accent lighting, the custom billet features from RWC really pop.  The most exciting part of the interior is the custom made shifter.  Not only was it custom made with a hockey puck, it is signed by both Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews.  And since no car would be complete without new sounds, Cartronix Inc added a premium Phoenix Gold Audio system.


Under the hood RWC had Liquid Ink add some of their special touches.  Starting with the engine cover using hydro-graphics, they wrapped it in a tow-tone bred and black carbon fiber.  This carried into the stabilizer bar and was finished off with the straight black carbon fiber on the air intake and fuse panel covers. 

I’ve been fortunate to photograph some of the previous years’ editions, and I have to say that this year’s car is hands down my favorite.  From the planning to all of the hard work put into building this, you can tell how much ChevyDrivesChicago.com and RealWheels Corp care about producing a quality product.   When you go check this out at this year’s Chicago Auto Show, be sure to take a close look at the custom upper and lower grilles featuring custom silhouette Blackhawks logos.  Cory added a VERY special something extra that no other NHL team can say they have.   I will not spoil this extra feature; you will have to look very carefully to find it!

Trivia -  If you look behind the Chicago Logo, you'll see the Stanley Cup


 

The Camaro will debut at The 2014 Chicago Auto Show, and will be on display at all Blackhawks home games. It is scheduled to make appearances throughout Chicagoland for the remainder of the Summer.   You can register to win this awesome car at any one of these locations and the winner will be announced at the end of the 2014 NHL season.  One lucky fan will take delivery at the annual Blackhawks Convention in downtown Chicago…it could be you!  For more information please visitwww.chevydriveschicago.com
