As it stands, the fastest variant of the just launched sixth-generation 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is the V8-powered SS variant. It is inevitable however that in the coming years, a whole host of new Camaro variants will be offered and the one most likely to be given the nod of approval for production is a new Camaro Z/28.
The outgoing Camaro Z/28 set new standards for performance for not only a Camaro but also an American muscle car. So well received has the Z/28 been that it’s continually spoken of in the same breath as many of its European rivals costing significantly more. As a result, it seems inevitable that Chevrolet will only want to expand on that success through the release of a next-gen Z/28. The new car would also pose the perfect rival to the recently revealed Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R.
Visually, the following rendering of a new Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 depicts the car with a host of new aerodynamic and visual elements. These include a new front grille and splitter, an aggressive bonnet with a prominent power bulge, flared wheel arches and extended side skirts. A subtle bootlid lip spoiler has also been fitted.
As for the existing Camaro range, engines include a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, a naturally aspirated 3.6-litre V6 and the 6.2-litre LT1 V8 from the Corvette Stingray producing 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque.
