  • 505 HP 7.0L

The 4,118-pound coupe was a stoplight king with a good set of lungs (0-60 in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 184 miles per hour).

Beyond the monster naturally-aspirated engine, the Z/28 features unique shocks, tires, brakes, suspension tuning, and a comprehensive and strategic lightening that ditches many of the niceties found on "consumer-grade" Camaros in pursuit of maximum performance.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

Stopping the Z/28 are lightweight carbon ceramic brakes fitted to 19-inch lightweight forged aluminum wheels.
by cars.com (Apr, 2013)
Zero to 60 mph passes in 4.4 seconds, and the quarter-mile clears in 12.7, by which time you’re doing 116 mph.
by Car and Driver (Mar, 2014)
With this car's emphasis on performance, it's no surprise that options abound to make it look and handle better.
by KBB (Jul, 2013)

Powertrain

Both the differential and transmission have been fitted with high-capacity liquid-to-liquid coolers for extreme duty.
by AutoBlog (Mar, 2014)
In yet another a nod to enthusiasts, the Z/28 is only offered with a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual, a transmission using close-ratio gearing and a 3.91:1 final drive ratio optimized for the LS7's power delivery.
by AutoBlog (Mar, 2014)
For drivers who can't envision anything but a V8 under the hood, several iterations are available, from the 580-horsepower supercharged monster in the ZL1 to the Corvette-derived LS7 in the new, track-ready Z/28..
by KBB (Jul, 2013)

Handling

Under the Z/28 is a new suspension that Chevrolet says is one of the first in a production car to use four-way adjustable shocks for tuning high- and low-speed shock adjustments.
by cars.com (Apr, 2013)
Even without the ZL1’s magnetic dampers, the Z/28 retains ride-height sensors at each wheel to feed data to the five-mode perform­ance-traction-management system that determines when to straighten the car with the brakes, reduce torque via engine management, or feed power to the rear wheels.
by Car and Driver (Mar, 2014)
Despite the abuse of relentless full throttle, consistent ABS braking and high-g cornering, the engine oil would stay cool, the tires would wear perfectly level and nary a warning light dared illuminate on the dash.
by AutoBlog (Mar, 2014)

Engine

Other than the flat-bottom steering wheel and rescaled speedo and tachometer, from the driver’s seat the Z/28 could easily be confused for a six-cylinder Camaro.
by Car and Driver (Mar, 2014)
With a 7.0-liter V-8, carbon-ceramic brakes, damper technology borrowed from Formula 1, and the widest front tires on a production car, Chevy’s Camaro Z/28 is a Boss 302 fighter raised on growth hormones and testosterone.
by Car and Driver (Mar, 2014)
Chevrolet says it has taken 3 seconds off the Z/28's lap times compared to the supercharged Camaro ZL1 in initial testing.
by cars.com (Apr, 2013)

Braking

It is stoic and stable as it bounds over the curbing and hunkers into hard braking through the tight corkscrew of Barber’s eighth and ninth turns.
by Car and Driver (Mar, 2014)
The 15.5-inch carbon-ceramic two-piece front rotors with six-piston Brembo calipers and 15.3-inch rear rotors help provide up to 1.5 g in deceleration.
by MotorTrend
Oversized Brembo six- and four-piston alloy monobloc calipers clamp down on 15.5-inch rotors up front and 15.4-inch rotors in the rear, and the anti-lock brakes have even been reprogrammed to specifically accommodate late braking into corners and assist initial turn-in.
