Camaro’s Comeback with the Z/28

7 APR 2014

The legendary Camaro Z/28 is back! Originally introduced in 1967, Camaro Z/28 was lightweight, nimble and incredibly powerful, ideal for road racing. The 2014 Z/28 carries the same credentials, able to run laps around race tracks in record times. A hand-assembled LS7 engine powers the Camaro Z/28, boasting an incredible 505 horsepower and 481 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful normally aspirated regular production small block V8 ever. Durable, lightweight components like titanium intake valves and connecting rods coupled make the LS7 engine incredibly robust. The car also features a 6-speed manual gearbox that’s optimized for the engine’s power characteristics, ensuring quick and precise shifts. Power is distributed to the rear wheels, allowing drivers to get through corners faster, or adjust the level of throttle to match their driving environment.

“The 2014 Camaro Z/28’s 7-liter (427-cubic-inch) V-8 engine puts out more than 500 horsepower, and is said to have excellent zero to 100 kmh time. A six-speed manual transmission with close gear range gives the driver precise control over the engine’s speed and range. This is a car that harkens back to the glory days of Chevrolet and will be fast and very fun to drive. On the outside, Chevrolet has improved aerodynamics by adding fender flares over the wheels, which reduces wind drag, as well as a rear spoiler and extended panels at the bottom of the doors.”
