2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 based on original 1967


The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is more of a stripped-down and street-legal car, which has the essence of the original 1967 racing machine.

Chevy manufactured this car with one thing in mind – to make it the fastest Camaro ever in a racetrack. This new model is not 2002 drop top Camaro.

This new car has a number of fat trimming measures, like coming out of the factory with an uncarpeted trunk or without air-conditioning. This car only has one speaker that looks like a door-open chime. Also, the glass is thinner, and the back seats are lighter and thinner to cut weight.

With the fat trimmed down, Chevy’s 7.0-liter V8 will be used. The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 racecar pumps out 505 horse power and 481 lb-ft of torque with a legendary throttle response. Its six-speed manual turns power to a Torsen limited slip differential to make sure it will stay on the tarmac. It uses an electronic traction control system that proves to be one of the smartest in the business.

There are changes and improvements in the body as well. Its spoilers, vents, diffuser, rockers, and splitters look exactly the same as the Z/28.R Chevy racecars. Those cars competed in the Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge. They created 150 pounds worth of down force going at 150 mph.

The civilian version of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 uses the pressure through the widest front tires for a production car and it has a set of shock that is very unique. These are spoon-valve dampers that were created in Formula One. Thee can be tuned for independent rebound and compression. These are stiffest in the Z/28 during the start of the travel, and then it loosens up as it pass through bigger bumps.

The new 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 seems to be designed for the curves, because it has a quick and responsive steering. Its fat tires always work in sticking to the pavement on the road.

Though the Camaro is a big and heavy 3,820-pound car, it has the ability to swerve smoothly on a curve, unless the driver doesn’t know what he is doing.

Braking during the drift is supported by the Brembo callipers and carbon ceramic discs. Chevy provided a 1.5 g worth of deceleration. It also has a deep Recaro bucket seat to make the driver stay properly on the seat.

With all these amazing features, it would be to no surprise that the price of this car, including the delivery is $75,000.
