There is an interesting Easter Egg lurking in the options list of the new Chevrolet SS configurator; namely, if you click your way through the transmission, paint, etc. all the way to the splash guards and floor mats, you’ll find that they ship with a familiar Australian jungle cat printed proudly upon them.
Yes, as Jalopnik pointed out, Chevrolet never bothered putting their own bow-tie badging on these optional extras for the 2015 Chevrolet SS. The options descriptions state – almost proudly – that these items feature the Holden logo.
Like Jalopnik, we, too, would like to believe that these regal lions from a land down under were left intentionally as a tribute, a carefully placed and subtle nod to the enthusiast crowd who might appreciate such things. But more probably, Chevrolet simply didn’t care to give such details more than a moment’s thought. They’ll only sell perhaps 2,500 of the things next year, after all.
No matter. If you are an enthusiast, of course you are allowed to relish the mats as an Easter Egg: the only part of that car which pays proper tribute to the country – and brand – from which it hails.
