The much awaited 2014 Camaro Z28 has been unveiled today at the New York Auto Show.  While we enthusiasts will not see this stellar Camaro until 2014, it is still exciting news.   Camaro fans have long been clamoring for a real hard nosed version of the Z28.  A car that the hard core drivers and enthusiasts could get their teeth into.  Something that still fits the mold of the early 1967 to 1969 Camaro Z28 models that became legendary in the SCCA Trans Am Series from that era.

Track enthusiasts have always wanted a Camaro built under the premise that any part of the car you throw into the air that comes back down, is too heavy to put back on.   Brakes should be spec’d to much more than required.  Suspension should give the best level of handling, not just adequate.  Cooling components should be overbuilt.   In essence, if it does not make the car faster, lighter or more reliable….it should not be in the design!

This enthusiast is completely ecstatic that they have released the new 2014 Camaro Z28 built just as it should be.   The way the engineers dreamed of doing it.   The way the hard core drivers wanted it.   Only the “good stuff” is built into the new Z28.  Recaro seats with light weight manual adjusters, half thickness back glass, aero package, lighter rear seat, dry sump LS7 427 engine, Tremec TR6060 6 speed manual trans, helical gear limited slip differential, adjustable Performance Traction Management. Air conditioning is not standard, you have to order it on purpose!

There is much more to the street/track Camaro that is destined to become as legendary as the Gen 1 Z28.   We cannot wait to have one out at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park for a shakedown.

Instead of me listing all the features of this 2014 Camaro Z28, I have attached the original General Motors Press Release to properly cover all the aspects of this great Camaro

What do you think about the 2014 Camaro Z28?
