Chevrolet Rolls Out Chip Foose Tahoe for MTV Awards

A 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe concept customized by Chip Foose will make its red-carpet debut on August 31 at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards.

The concept showcases what General Motors describes as "classic Foose details," including a black powder-coated billet grille. Foose lowered the Tahoe and applied a two-tone paint job of silver birch and black with a thin Tangier orange stripe along the top of the door cladding.

Exterior features include Foose badging, dual stainless steel exhaust tips and chrome side molding. Inside, the Tahoe includes a stainless steel instrument panel and the Foose logo stitched into the headrests and stamped onto the door sill plates.

The event will also feature a customized fleet of 60 E85 SUVs. The fleet includes 2007 Chevrolet Tahoes, Suburbans and Avalanches. The vehicles are decked out with a custom billet grille, 2006 MTV Video Music Awards badging, Chevy wheels with Goodyear Eagle tires and chrome center caps, and a special cover trailer hitch receiver (on Tahoes and Suburbans only).

The vehicles will go on sale after the show at Chevrolet dealerships in the New York area. A commemorative plaque will be included with each sale.

What this means to you: Awards shows are becoming auto shows, judging by the effort put into them by automakers and customizers.
