No stereo no carpet no AC unless ordered. you might as well order the COPO. its a race car not a street car.

you can have it.
I'll take my 510rwhp Dusk over it all day long. or a ZL1 any day of the week over this.

"The Camaro z/28 is back with an LS7 V8 and 500 horsepower. Carbon brakes, AC is optional, and tons of weight was taken out.
The Z/28 name means lot. This is a Camaro with the 427 engine (7 "liters" to you Anglophiles) from the C6 Z06. That means we have a naturally aspirated Camaro with 500 horsepower and 470 pound feet of torque. That's what I'm talking about.
Mark Reuss said that the Z/28 can run on a drag strip all day. But that's not what it's all about.
This car is built for the track.
Weight was taken out with a shovel. There is no carpet in the trunk. Extra cooling everywhere. Brake cooling. Optional AC. There is only one speaker for the notifications, which means that there is no stereo. It's about 300 pounds lighter than the 580 horsepower Camaro ZL1. That's a good little weight savings in a car that has always been a little too portly

I think late fall, winter is when it will hit dealers. The real question is, how much will it cost?

I'm going to say $70k.

Very, very nice...at last a Z28. I'm guessing $53K since they're taking so many amenities out including carpet and sound deadening. What would performance be like???

My 2012 LS3 weighed 3820 with half tank of gas. The Z should weigh in the 3500 lb range.

12.00@120? Zero to 60 in 3.8?

Your math is a little off, they said it is 100lbs lighter than the SS and about 300lbs lighter than the ZL1 so is is about 3,720 compared to your cars weight.

Very true!! The red SS is nothing compared to the Z28!
