When it was launched at the 2013 New York International Auto Show, the Camaro Z/28 was hailed as a track-focused sports coupe that also happens to be street legal.
Its spec sheet sure is impressive. The Corvette-sourced 7.0-liter V8 pushed out 505 HP and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque, but, most importantly, Chevrolet had fitted it with carbon ceramic brakes, super sticky Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R tires, stiffer suspension, a close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox… the list of changes is long and also comprises of weight-saving measures, like thinner glass or a new, lighter battery.
It’s safe to assume that all 500 of the initial 2014 batch were lapped up pretty quickly, despite the $75,000 sticker price. Yet, there is currently one 2014MY example that’s showing just 336 miles on its odo and it’s up for sale at Naples Auto Collection in Florida.
According to the vendor, this car was used by GM as a display vehicle and was never shipped to a dealer, hence its practically brand-new condition. Now, there might be a new Camaro out there and 50 grand can get you some pretty good new metal, but this Z/28 sure is tempting at a $25k discount, isn’t it?
