Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Goes Officially On Sale
2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 officially goes on sale. The car will be offered in five distinctive exterior colors - Red Hot, Black, Silver Ice Metallic, Ashen Gray Metallic and Summit White; as well as one available option package which includes air conditioning and a total of six audio speakers.
It is no secret that this Camaro has been optimized aerodynamically and has achieved a lap on Nürburgring road course that was four seconds faster than the Camaro ZL1. Another factor that plays crucial role in these terms is the power of the Chevy which comes from the 7.0L LS7 engine.
The petrol unit generates 505 horsepower (376 kW) and 481 lb-ft of torque (652 Nm) and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The power is distributed to the rear wheels via a Torsen limited-slip differential that includes a helical gear set in order to achieve optimal traction.
2014 Camaro Z/28 is fitted with race-proven, spool-valve dampers. They allow four-way damping control, greater damper stiffness without a significant change in ride quality. Other changes regarding the chassis include stiffer spring and bushing rates for better cornering response.
19-inch forged aluminum wheels and Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tires in size 305/30ZR19 is what also gives the Camaro the exceptional qualities of a fast and furious car. To fully exploit their grip, the Z/28 also features Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix rotors and fixed, monoblock calipers.
Inside, this vehicle includes unique matte-metallic finish called Octane, a flat-bottom steering wheel and Recaro seats with microfiber inserts. The seats also feature bolsters for high-performance driving, and seat cutouts inspired by the five-point harnesses found on racing seats.
2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will be available for those willing to buy it for the price of $75,000 USD in late January.
