The Chevy Beast is aiming to steal the show at SEMA 2021
This Warthog-style thing is a 6.2-litre V8-engined desert running concept
It takes something pretty special to steal the show at SEMA. Welcome then, to the Chevy Beast. No, you're lost for words.
Channeling full Halo Warthog vibes, the Beast (great name) is a high-performance desert running concept specifically developed for the Las Vegas tuning show. It sits on a modified Silverado short-bed chassis and gets a custom, lightweight body with short overhangs for optimum approach and departure angles.
Power comes from a crate engine to show off some of Chevrolet Performance’s offerings. This one is a 6.2-litre LT4 V8 with 641bhp and 650lb ft of torque. That’s sent to all four wheels through a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
The Beast also gets Chevrolet Performance’s Big Brake Upgrade System, plus 20-inch wheels and 37-inch off-road tyres. The track is widened from the standard Silverado too, and there’s custom long-travel suspension.
The inside (if you can call it inside) gets four Recaro seats, proper race harnesses and a pair of seven-inch screens to monitor your performance and vehicle data.
This is what concepts should be like.
