It cost a stupid amount of money to bring another car to the line up. The car might share same the same sheet metal however there is alot more there. Glass, brakes, tires, rims, front spoiler, rear spoiler the list goes on. look at the fender flares. You just can't slap those on. Between the motor and brakes there's 20-25K alone. And you have to make sure it all can take a beating.

A simple addition exercise of adding up the incremental costs of the known improvements over an SS with the 1LE package ....... like the LS7, dry sump, brakes, seats, tires, etc will have this car easily running $60k or more. That's my guess anyway.

Truly takes the wind outta my sails...LS7 was the dream come true but not at the price some are speculating...surprised GM would price this Camaro beyond the reach of most targeted buyers.

The good news is I have a renewed interest in my car that I lost for a day or so...

I thought the ZR1 was the most expensive Camaro offered. Not counting the new 69 copos.

The is no such thing as a Camaro ZR1.

Well this will certainly sqaush the dreams of a lot of people who yesterday thought they would be getting it. Will not be seeing many of these on the road, that's for sure.

They didn't build this car for race interested ppl. They built it so the ones who wanted it could drool and the ones who can afford it to buy them up and store them in a vault.

It's sad the nostalgia increases the price heavily. With all the comfort and amenities dropped from the car,the price of just the car itself without the Z-28 specific parts would bring it to be around $20-26k tops? Leaning more towards $20k. Add in the specific parts and it shouldn't be more than 45k. They're into producing dream cars rather than cars made for the general public. The regular everyday ppl wanted the ls7 camaro, the regular everyday ppl wanted the z-28 and GM delivers something the avg guy can just wish and dream about. Rather pathetic dont you think?

Pricing aside, I think the Z/28 throws a great concept and fresh ideas into the mix for all of us, and some may have forgotten...No frills, factory performance, cars that we can race...all our cars have great handling and track capablility built in already....Take them out to the track and race them!...It's in your Camaro's DNA...Don't be bummed over the price of the Z/28...It's a fantastic addition to the Camaro family....Enjoy!

What was the price of a Z06 with the LS7 engine? The Z/28 probably has more technology in it than the C6 Z06. I wonder what the difference in performance numbers will be?

On chevrolet.com, the Z06 runs $76K to $85K between the 1LZ and 3LZ packages. 505 Hp 470 Tq, 3.7 sec 0-60.

You think the Z/28 will be less than that?

It'll be 505 HP no doubt. I'm happy they produced it, just pissed that they're gouging for nostalgia.

Kids used to have dreams about growing up and owning Z/28's!! Now they will grow up to be men and never feel like kids again because they will never own or drive a Z/28. Well except for maybe Rick Hendrick's kids.

Less comfort and less power than a ZL1 at a higher price. Pretty simple choice for me if I was buying right now.

Meh, they can have an SS and feel just as kid-like. I know I do in mine.

For so many years of Camaro's thru the 70's,80's and 90's the Z-28 was a street driving option. No more, it's back to it's original roots. RACE CAR. Not intended for everyday street use. And race cars are expensive. The Z-28 will probably be the most expensive street legal Camaro. For us regular people, we have the SS and I hope the ZL1 and 1LE will still be options. There is something for everyone. I think this whole Chevy line up is just awesome.

I can agree with this as long as the 1LE remains. The ZL1 is confirmed for at 2014 if I am understanding correctly.

The Camaro never was intended to be out of the price range for the average hard working American...it has ALWAYS been a car you could buy on Saturday and race on Sunday if you wanted to...We enjoy getting our hands dirty and making them "ours" Never intended to be thought of as "Wear your wall street business suit on Friday and go out to your garage in your slippers and stare at it on Saturday and Sunday"

I sort of remember a lot of similar griping over the cost, and the dealer-mark up, limited numbers to be made, out of reach for buyers, etc., for the ZL-1...I'd say the first reactions to the Z/28 are quite similar...so maybe just wait and see...

most expensive Camaro? = hahaha = COPO
..should've clarified comment as 'street-legal'
..might as well buy it's weight in gold and store it Fort Knox, at least gold appreciates better, and mass approved(I think I'll put some gold bricks in my 2010 and let it sit awhile).
..here's an afterthought, get rid of the rear seats, and put a lightweight roll cage in it, for that price..
