2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28: What Makes It Special

Compared to the standard Camaro, the Camaro Z/28 is a more capable car designed specifically for road racing. While the standard Camaro is good enough for everyday use, Chevrolet had to put in a lot of efforts to come up with the Camaro Z/28, a lightweight, agile and supremely powerful version of the car.

For 2014, Chevrolet carries the excitement by introducing the updated Camaro Z/28 which promises to be even more potent when it comes to performing on track. Starting with the aesthetics first, all elements on the external of the car are for a purpose. The body features several race-inspired components that are a result of the hard work that went into the development of the 2014 Corvette Stingray.

The face of the Z/28 has received a significant update and is based on the Camaro SS. To name some of the elements you have an airflow-optimized grille and a modified bottom for better brake cooling. The main job of these elements is to channel air toward the unique splitter and wheelhouse liners. On the hood sits a functional carbon fiber extractor for increased cooling.

Other important and functional elements on the exterior include front wheelhouse liners, unique wheel flare moldings featuring deflectors for increased downforce, a rear spoiler featuring a “wickerbill” for better grip and stability, a belly pan, and a thinner rear glass windows. On the inside the Camaro Z/28 gets a 4.7 kg lighter rear seat that has less foam and a fixed design with no folding feature.

Powering the vehicle is a 7.0L LS7 engine that is rated at 505 hp and delivers a peak torque of 481 lb-ft or 652 Nm. Complementing the powerful engine is the TREMEC TR6060 6-speed manual transmission that transmits the power to the rear wheels.

The Camaro Z/28 rolls on 19 inch alloy wheels shod with P305/30/ZR19 tires at the front and rear. Stopping performance is offered by a set of track capable carbon ceramic matrix brakes by Brembo.
