Chevrolet unveiled the Camaro Z/28 as the most capable and fastest Camaro currently availablet. When compared to a standard Camaro, the Z/28 version will feature a full aerodynamic package, an updated interior look, high-performance suspension and brakes, and of course, a more powerful engine.
Under the hood, Z/28 gets a naturally aspirated 7.0L LS7 V-8 engine that delivers a total of 505 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to a Tremec TR6060 manual transmission that sends the engine’s power to the rear wheels.
The 2014 Camaro Z/28 is priced at $75,000.
The 2014 COPO Camaro was unveiled at the 2013 SEMA Auto Show and, just like the previous version, will be limited to only 69 units.
The model will be offered with a pair of new racing engines, including a revised take on the naturally aspirated 427 engine, as well as a supercharged version of the 350-cubic-inch engine. Other updated will also include an NHRA-approved roll cage and suspension and an exclusive live rear axle.
