2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28: First Look Video

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28: First Look Video

Chevrolet unveiled a surprise today at the 2013 New York Auto Show when it announced the Z/28 nameplate’s revival.

Not only that, but the badge is back with a vengeance as the fastest Camaro ever built. There’s a 7.0-liter LS7 V8 under the hood with 500 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. That’s quite a distance south of the supercharged ZL1’s 580 hp and 556 lb-ft of torque.

Regardless, the Z/28 is 300 lbs lighter, wears carbon ceramic brakes and beat the ZL1’s lap time by three seconds, although Chevrolet didn’t say where that took place.

Also of note, the car will only be sold with a six-speed manual transmission and comes fitted with a body kit designed to deliver downforce at speed.

  • How much Luke? I keep reading about $45K? In line with the Mustang Boss perhaps? A/C being an option sounds like this machine is back where the late 60’s muscle machines were?? Cool stuff here but I’d love to own the ZL1.

    I am curious as to what the price will be as well.  However, I have to disagree with you Louie, I would buy the Z/28 way before the ZL1.  The look of the Z/28, both inside and out, is just over the top for me compared to the ZL1.  Better braking capability, newly designed spoiler, and the better looking taillights are incredible, not to mention the body kit on the bottom.  Simply an amazing looking piece of machinery.

  • White Zombie Dragster proves the torque is available, Google nano carbon super capacitors for the Power Densities approaching, even exceeding that of gasoline to prove that 1000 km trips are reasonable, and if still not convinced of the “Electric Takeover”, Google Israel’s electric 1000 km car, and the Chreos. All carbon sequestering hemp bodies next, from University of Alberta’s hemp molding technologies – and Thorium heat and electric power will yield Aluminium undercarriage parts for as cheap as U.S. steel. 21st Century technologies will not be refused. Global Village moving ahead very fast. Three moving part power trains, far lower failure rates, much longer lasting. Thankfully even the Camero is adaptable to the newer higher power technologies, may live on into the 21 century if GM can keep up? Volt – not the answer.

    I own a Z06 and know first hand the power of the LS7.  Fit that into the Camaro with the seats pictured in the blog, & you’ll have a ride worthy of the Bow Tie marquis.

    I have a Z06, the LS7 is an epic engine, add a CAI and a tune and you’re at 539 hp, but what catches you by surprise is how fast the engine revs…driving a Z06 is simply exhilarating.
