A mix of custom roadster, open-air sports car and hot-rod pickup, the unique Chevrolet SSR is entering limited production with 25 "Signature Series" vehicles. First shown in January 2000, the SSR concept is designed to capture the Chevrolet brand and design heritage without missing out on the advantages of the latest high-tech engineering.

The Signature Series vehicles will be identical in appearance and have certain features not found on any other 2003 model year SSR including ultraviolet paint, unique badging, and special interior.
