Love the motor choice....but not liking much the fender flares and extended front splitter. But congrats to all those who have been waiting for its return. Well done Chevy....

The COPO was 100,000.00 and it was stripped too.I could be wrong but....somewhere between the ZL1 and the COPO.
True but the COPO is what? A 9 sec. car? The Z-28 having less HP than a ZL-1 (being detuned) shouldn't make it more than the ZL-1 IMO. It'll be basically a bare bones street racer, but in order to be more expensive, it's going to to have to be a total street brawler blowing out the doors of any competition. It may be more. But it's hard to believe it would be since most ppl like the luxury in their street cars. I mean why not get a Vette for 70k? Wouldn't that be faster on a track than a Z-28? Sure it's different cars but somehow I can't see you spending an enormous amount for a car that would be street legal yet outperform a Vette without amenities. Idk, we shall see.

Would be cool if you could get it with manual hand crank windows... I might be persuaded to consider the z/28 then... I hate power windows. My last z/28 (94) had manual hand crank windows.

Got them in my 2005 Xtreme Colorado along with manual locks and transmission.

Love the aggressiveness of this thing. And I LOVE the equipment like the LS7, the seats and the carbon ceramic brakes...should be killer on the track. Plus I gotta get me a set of those seats...

This thing is going to be priced high...for all of you guys that think its not...you've been warned. Think about it...the brakes alone are gonna add a few grand to the price tag alone (Carbon ceramic brake option on a Porsche Cayman...$8,150)....and that's just the brakes. And don't think that because they took a bunch of speakers out that you're going to somehow recoup that money in the price tag. Hell did you guys look at how wide those front tires are? 305's up front...and I assume out back as well. Also preeeeety expensive. Not to mention that hand built LS7....yea they're going for pretty cheep. Lol

Don't get me wrong...I love the car, the idea of it is very exciting and I want to steal some of the stuff off of it for my car lol. But it's going to be pricy. Stand by...

Im guessing around the same price as a ZL1. Those carbon brakes are pricey. I already have a promise from my dealer that I am getting their first one. Seeing as how I have bought 10 trucks from them in the last year I have a little bit of pull. Of course they will kill me on my 2010, 83000 mile SS that Im trading in! I think it will be killer in black. Dry sump, 7,000 rpm, carbon brakes, ah yes!

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Introduced (in Refreshed Style)!

One thing I really don't agree with is the stick on fender pieces. They look like panel gap just waiting to happen...

I hope for the 6th gen the Z28 and ZL1 come with widebody kits ala Z06/ZR1. Instead of this stick on crap...

Maybe you're right about pricing but remember, it was stated that the LSA 6.2 is the camaro's most powerful engine and will STAY as the supreme engine in these cars as far as horsepower goes. So the engine alone will NOT cost as much as an LSA hand built or not IMO.

They will keep the ZL-1 as king. In the 60s is was king and today it will be considered the king of camaros.
