    The automotive aftermarket tradeshow known as SEMA begins today in Las Vegas but the action actually kicked-off last night with the SEMA Reveal Show. GM Performance Manager Jim Campbell served as the host and immediately we see the stage is occupied by the 2020 Corvette Stingray Convertible in Rapid Blue. Driving the car was racing legend Ron Fellows and riding shotgun was Chevrolet's Global Chief Designer Phil Zak.

    Ron grabs the mic first and talks about the driving aspects of the car, as well as how its fun to drive on the track. As the namesake of the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School, he says they will soon have their 3rd generation of Corvettes at the school and he's looking forward to the new program around the car.

    Chevy designer Phil Zak talks about the overt changes to the design of the car with the move of the engine to the rear of the car. As SEMA is all about customization, Phil walks through some of the various options available saying that you can get a bespoke Corvette based on the customization available.

    Next up was Corvette Racing’s C8.R making its way to the stage with Corvette driver Tommy Milner behind the wheel. Tommy talks about the feel of the car and how well it drives. With Jim’s prompts, Tommy drops the name of a few of the historic tracks the car was tested on, mostly in secret.

    There was also an electric concept built from a 1962 C10 pickup which they are calling the E-10 Concept.

      I think the announcer stated zero to sixty mph in 2.9 seconds and 194 mph...
