LAS VEGAS (AP) - Chevrolet unveiled its 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup car Thursday.

The matching Chevrolet SS passenger car, a new rear-wheel drive vehicle that will be available in showrooms in August, will be unveiled in February around the season-opening Daytona 500, when it will debut on the track.

The passenger car will be built in Australia and sold in the U.S. It’s the first time in 17 years that Chevrolet will offer a rear-wheel-drive sedan in the U.S., and Chevy will rely on the engineering, technology and infrastructure used to build the Holden Commodore in Australia to build the SS.

Chevrolet officials used the events surrounding NASCAR’s season-ending awards ceremony to unveil the car, and had several of its drivers and team owners on hand with their 2013 cars.
