2014 Chevrolet Camaro Line-up Features Track-Focused Z/28
Chevrolet rolls out the restyled 2014 Camaro line-up at the New York Auto Show, which includes the return of the iconic Z/28.
Designed to be the fastest road-racing Camaro, that’s still street-legal, the Z/28 forgoes ultimate horsepower and torque for improved weight balance and track performance. The heart of the Camaro Z/28 is the lighter, naturally aspirated 7.0L LS7 which features unique induction and exhaust systems, and delivers at least 500 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
“We looked at every subsystem for opportunities to save weight,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “Our goal was to get rid of everything that didn’t make the car faster, and keep only what was required by law. For example, we wanted to eliminate the audio system completely, but we had to keep a single speaker for the seat-belt chime to meet safety requirements.”
The new 2014 Camaro line will arrive at Chevrolet dealers later in 2013. The Camaro Z/28 is expected to be appearing at track events across the United States in spring 2014.
