New 2014 Camaro Z/28 Priced from $75,000, Nearly $18k More Than Slower ZL1

When the performance oriented 2014 Camaro Z/28 arrives in Chevrolet dealerships this spring, it will carry a suggested retail price of $75,000 (equal to about €55,100), including a $995 destination charge and gas-guzzler tax, but excluding state tax, title, license and dealer fees, making it the most expensive model in the range.

For reference, that’s more than double the price of the 426HP 6.2-liter V8 Camaro 1SS ($34,050), and a $17,650 premium over the Camaro ZL1 that comes with a 580HP 6.2-liter supercharged V8.

The Z/28 is a more specialized and performance focused model than the ZL1 offering better aerodynamics, less weight and greater grip (up to 1.08 g in cornering acceleration), while power is provided by a naturally-aspirated 7.0-liter V8 LS7 rated at an SAE-certified 505HP (376 kW) and 481 lb-ft of torque (652 Nm).

The only transmission offered is a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission channeling power to the rear wheels via a Torsen limited-slip differential featuring a helical gear set.

In October, GM announced that the new Camaro Z/28 went around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:37.47, or four-seconds faster than the ZL1 while also beating published times for the Porsche 911 Carrera S, Lexus LFA and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.

Other notable features include 19-inch forged aluminum wheels with massive 305/30ZR19 PZero Trofeo R tires, Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix rotors and fixed, monoblock calipers, a flat-bottom steering wheel and Recaro bucket seats with microfiber inserts.

The Camaro Z/28 is an uncompromising performer that’s bred for the track – and every one of its unique components supports the goal of faster lap times,” commented Mark Reuss, president, General Motors North America.

You’ll be able to place your order in for the new Z/28 in late January for delivery in the spring, while bragging rights to the first Camaro Z/28 with VIN 0001, will be auctioned at Barrett Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona on January 18.
