NASCAR star Tony Stewart helped design the personalized appearance of his ZL1, which features a custom gray metallic exterior accented with tribal and Smoke graphics in flat red and silver pinstripes – as well as tinted headlamp lenses with red halo lighting.

2012 Chevrolet Tony Stewart Camaro ZL1

Three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champ Tony Stewart enjoys driving on the street as well as track and his sinister-looking Camaro ZL1 reflects the personality of a man nicknamed Smoke.

Stewart visited the GM Design Center, in Warren, Mich., to work with Chevrolet Design Manager Dave Ross to imbue his personality and tastes on the supercharged sports car. The collaboration delivered a custom gray metallic exterior accented with tribal and Smoke graphics in flat red and silver pinstripes. The headlamp lenses were tinted and feature red halo lighting; and this personalized performer rolls on custom wheels with a Piano Black finish and red accents.

Inside, Stewart’s ZL1 feature Jet Black leather seats with suede inserts and scarlet accent stitching, as well as:

*Embroidered Tony Stewart signatures on the seats
*Suede leather door panel inserts and instrument panel wrapping with laser-etched details
*Jet Black leather door armrests with French stitching and white piping
*Jet Black suede leather-wrapped steering wheel with scarlet accent stitching
*Piano Black trim plates and gauge cluster bezel.
