In initial testing, the Camaro Z/28 is three seconds faster per lap than the Camaro ZL1.

No AC/ sound deading/ base radio w 1 speaker <--- this is a true track car that is road legal. So it is not a direct competitor to the ZL1 but more of a weekend toy.

Hand built LS7 and the Carbon ceramic brakes (which are big $$$) are going to add a ton of cost. My guess is the shocks are pricy too. So add those in and it is not going to be cheap.

Agree it will be the same as ZL1 or more....

Only 100 less than the SS, so not huge weight reduction, I lost half of that just dumping the stock exhaust....

There are some foilers out there for our Camaros, I will try to find a pic. I think they may just be the perfect fit now. They never looked right before.

True, I have a feeling some people will buy one for the badge alone "Z/28". (The LS7 is also a plus )

My question is just how much of a stripper model is it? Can items be optioned back in like the radio, etc. Or is it an all or nothing package?

I'm not in the market for a new Camaro so it doesn't really matter to me but there are a lot of people who wanted a Z28 with an LS7 and all the other track parts that also want the creature comforts in spite of the few pounds they would add.

I wonder how insurers will look at the Z28 as its being promoted as a track car. My guess is some insurance companies will not be willing to insure it or charge through the roof.

It sucks when you have money to spend and they won't sell a person what they want.

Lol. He was on a list with Becky, anyone could have called her and got on a potential list. Nothing was actually ordered before today.

Give Becky a call today, she'll help you too.

So you're saying ordering opened today? I'm waiting for my dealer to call me back as we speak. He's a friend so it makes it tough for me to go anywhere else.
I did tell him though that I wasn't messing around like we did the the ZL1.

Not sure when ordering will open but I'm sure there was none before today, that's my point.

I guess this is like the new Stingray because the pole shows that so far 47.73% love the renewed Camaro and 52.27% Don't like it.

So its one of those hate it or love it situations.

I have a feeling that the price of this car is going give some people a stroke. It's going to be a kick in the jewels if this car is priced in Z06 territory (or more) which is what I'm thinking. Let's hope for the best.

Yes, I thought it was going to be somewhere in the 40's but after reading on some more info it has been stated in a couple different places that its going to be more expensive than the ZL1. Which I think is ridiculous. It should have been between the ZL1 and SS price range.

I know the LS7 is amazing and expesive but c'mon GM!!

I believe orders cannot be entered in GMs system yet but some people who have a good relationship with their dealer have had a commitment for, lets say a dealers 1st allotment. Thats what I have.
