Chevrolet surprised attendees at the 2013 New York International Auto Show today with the unveiling of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. The Camaro Z28 is a special edition version of the muscle car that slots in above the SS trim level, and it is designed to appeal to racing fans looking for a lightweight sports coupe.
Stripped of its trunk carpeting, sound insulation, air conditioning, and all but one speaker, the Camaro Z28 tips the scales lighter than the SS. It also features a 7.0-litre engine that pumps out roughly 500 horsepower, and it is packed with track-ready equipment including heavy-duty engine and brake cooling systems and Recaro sport seats.
In some ways, the Camaro Z28 takes on its cross-town rival the Boss 302, but the latter offers a host of creature comforts that have been erased from the Chevrolet’s list of standard equipment. This leaves the Z28 essentially unmatched on the muscle car market.
