The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 has officially hit the market and unsurprisingly, dealers are making the most of exceptional demand and excitement over the track-focused Camaro.
As a matter of fact, it has emerged that the Felix Chevrolet dealership in Los Angeles, California has marked up a black Camaro Z/28 by an extraordinary $30,000 bringing the total asking price up to $106,165!
As you’ve probably noticed, the black paint scheme of this 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 really makes it look like a muscle car Bumblebee from the Transformers movie franchise would be envious of. When combined with the gloss black wheels, unique front Chevrolet badge and the prominent black front splitter, this Z/28 is certainly stealthy.
The most notable changes featured on the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 when compared to the base model is its aggressive aerodynamic package which incorporates a new front splitter, larger flared wheel arches and larger rocker panels. These changes are then topped off with a small rear lip spoiler and rear diffuser.
In order to reduce weight on the car further, Chevrolet went about thinning the rear window to only 3.2mm from 3.5mm, and removed the HID headlights and fog lights. As a result of these changes, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Z/28 weighs a substantial 300 pounds less than the ZL1 and an impressive 100 pounds less than the performance-oriented Camaro SS variant.
Under the hood, the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 features a similar 7.0-liter LS7 V8 engine as present in the previous-generation Chevrolet Corvette Z06 with it delivering 500 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. Consequently, the car is three seconds faster around GM’s test track than the Camaro ZL1.
In order to restrain this power and help bring the car to a safe stop, Chevrolet then went about tinkering with the brakes and have fitted it with brand new Brembo carbon-ceramic brake discs capable of generating 1.5g of deceleration.
Update: We have since learnt that this markup was a mistake and Felix Chevrolet has adjusted the price accordingly.
