2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 aims at the Boss 302

Track day beast!

Although I've owned more Ford Mustangs any other vehicle in my life, I'm not really a Ford person. I like all kinds of vehicles, I just happen to like reasonably priced American muscle. There were some things about the new Camaro but I didn't like which left me purchasing a Ford. I am very interested in the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.

This isn't like the Z/28 of the late 80s and 90s, this new Z/28 is a naturally aspirated American muscle car designed specifically for track day enthusiasts. Chevrolet calls this the ultimate track-capable Camaro. The vehicle uses a high revving dry-sump LS7 with carbon-ceramic brakes and fluid coolers specifically made for track work.

The only potential downside to this car is that it has a stripped-down interior that may make it uncomfortable for some drivers. The car is also light with a curb weight by 300 pounds less than other Camaros in the line and has a special tracking suspension and aerodynamic treatments. The engine produces 500 hp and 470 pound-foot of torque. Pricing is unannounced, but if those carbon ceramic brakes are standard you can bet this will be the most expensive Camaro in the line.

Grainy Colorado: Chevy Sculpts New Mid-size Pickup Out of Sand

Sep 2 2014 4:53pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

First things first. The best thing to happen in San Diego during the Labor Day weekend was the Drive Like Jehu reunion show in Balboa Park, which found the angular rock geniuses accompanied by the gigantic, century-old Spreckels Organ. Everything else of note was simply vying for second place, including the annual U.S. Sand Sculpting Championships. Since Chevrolet apparently couldn’t get (or more likely didn’t try to get) Jehu frontman and noted ...
