2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 - Nurburgring Lap in 7:37 [video]
2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 lapped the "Green Hell" (Nurburgring) in just 7 minutes and 37.49 seconds.
The 2014 Camaro models comes with revised exterior featuring a full aerodynamics package that creates down-force at high speeds making the Z28 the most track-capable Camaro in history.
The aerodynamics body kit includes a new front splitter, flared fenders and extended side skirts. There is also a prominent spoiler, a new rear diffuser and underbody paneling. The exterior also features a quad sports exhaust system and a set of enormous 19" alloy wheels fitted with Pirelli PZero Trofeo R ultra-performance tires.
The interior boasts a pair of Recaro sport seats, a flat-bottom sports steering wheel, Octane matte trim and a new rear seat from high-density foam for more rigid structure.
The engine is a 7.0 liter LS7 V8 with 500HP (373 kW) and 637Nm (470 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a 6-speed Tremec gearbox powering the rear wheels, where an LSD takes care about the traction.
It is interesting that Z28 weighs whopping 136 kg (300 lbs) less than the powerful ZL1 model. That's why, it is considered to be faster at the race track.
Other nice feature is the Brembo carbon ceramic brake system. There's also a track-tuned suspension with stiffer springs and adjustable spool-valve dampers.
Still, there is no official pricing for the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28, but it will be around $56,000.
