Chevrolet Reboots the Classic Z/28 Camaro
During the New York Auto Show, Chevrolet unveiled its latest reboot: The Chevy Camaro Z/28!
It’s lighter and has the supercharged ZL1 power-plant, aero package, rear wing and diffuser. It’s the fastest Camaro yet, equipped with the 7.0-litre V8 as you’d find in the Corvette ZO6. And it’s been tweeked by Corvette Racing, which means there’s a dry sump, titanium intake valves, ported aluminium cylinder heads and a high-lift cam and a Tremec TR6060 six-speed, close-ratio manual transmission. To control all that muscle, Chevy’s fitted a set of Brembo carbon ceramic brakes and six piston callipers. Combined with Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tires and is said to be capable of pulling 1.5g in deceleration.
GM hasn’t released the stats yet, but output should be around the 500 brake horsepower range.
