Times like this all you can say is dear lord screw me with a chainsaw, gently.

I want to know the price. I want to see if I can swing it. The taillights will have to go, but still cheaper than getting an LS7

only problem is, z/28 has no mylink, no halo's, only comes in manual, and ac is optional. lol this is mostly a track car.
That's not a problem. It's suppose to mostly be a track car. It's a Z/28. They took out all that crap to decrease the weight like we have screamed about forever. 100 lbs is a nice weight reduction.

F&%K the radio, halo's and AC when you have a LS7.

I 200% take back any negative comment I made about this car from the earlier pics.
Thank You !

It proves to me they can build a car without all the techy-mommy-mobile crap that should never be in a performance car in the first place....Hopefully the success of this style car, without all the extraneous bs, will filter down to less expensive models...

Why? The 1LE is only $3500. I would bet good money that a Z/28 is going to cost you a lot more than $3500.

I just need to figure out how much.

The front looks pretty good in this shot. The rear of this thing may not fly with me. Nothing the after market companies won't fix for me. The hood wasn't going to stay anyways, makes no difference to me.

On the other hand I love the z28 but I do love the Rs halos and the z does not have them oh well :( Just might go for a zl1!

Amazing news. Looks like GM chose to put the Z/28 at the top Camaro. The option list is much more impressive than the ZL1. It's a true Z/28 although pricing will be high.

Only because thousands of Camaros with "all the techy-mommy-mobile crap" that the vast majority of consumers demand in a modern car have already been sold.

The fact that GM can offer a model like the Z/28 proves how much profit they've raked in with the 5th gen.
