Our man on the spot, SonicInsider.com's own, photog extraordinaire, Lucas Priamo, took us behind the scenes for a quick look at what was to come...

2011 SEMA Feature Profile: Chevrolet Sonic Boom Concept
The Sonic has been represented in serious numbers at SEMA 2011. Chevy spent
a lot of time working with partners to build custom cars, but also designed
a few serious gems of their own. One thing Chevy knew they needed was a
Sonic that would really go "boom!" and hence the Sonic Boom Concept was
The Sonic Boom features a 4,000 watt audio system by Kicker® Performance
Audio, custom 19" wheels, Z-Spec Concept Ground Effects, Grille and
Spoiler, along with an Anodized Flat Red paint job. A custom "Panic Button"
on the front dash activates the Sonic Boom's jet engine- inspired audio
system, opens the trunk and back doors while droppin' the hardcore bass on
any innocent bystanders.
I caught up with Rob Cameron of the Chevrolet Design Team on Monday night
and had him tell us a little about the car. Check the video out (you know
the drill) after the jump!
CHEVY SONIC: FATLACE X ROTIFORM = HELLAFLUSH
One of the dopest things about SEMA is the myriad of people that you have
the potential to run across at any given moment. From industry, to media,
to old friends— around every corner, a familiar face. Gotta love that.
Well, this morning, as we were drooling over the Fatlace Sonic at the Chevy
booth (which we'll get into in great detail shortly), we made a new friend,
Brian Henderson, owner of Rotiform Wheels. For those that don't know,
Rotiform is one of the hottest wheel companies in the game right now.
SonicInsider.com's Dave Rodriguez, a.k.a., Johnny on the Spot, caught Brian
for a quick interview as he popped by the Chevy booth to check out the
Fatlace Sonic and chop it up with Mark Arcenal.

SONICINSIDER CHATS WITH MARK ARCENAL
For those select enthusiasts that obsess over their cars, and in
particular, the subset consumed by a vehicle's "stance," Mark Arcenal's
aesthetic and approach to car building is revered. Godfather to the
Hellaflush movement, Mark's website Fatlace.com, has long been a touchstone
for the legions of style-hungry youth who gallivant about the Internet in
search of the "illest" ride. SonicInsider.com's own, Andy Williamson,
caught up with his old friend, Mark, and picked his brain on all things
Sonic. Peep the interview freshness after the jump!
