Sooooo, the car should $44,995? So basically it should list for what a loaded 1LE lists for but have $25k in extra equipment for free.

That's what I was thinking too.

News Media: "So GM, why did you price the car so high?"

General Motors: "Well after observing the Camaro enthusiast community's predictions on price, we did not want to disappoint them again. I mean did you see the comments on our new Camaro's tail lights?"

I bet the price will be high. I'm guessing around the ZL1 MSRP. Too high for most, but not so high they won't sell every one with additional dealer markup.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it doesn't work like that.

They can't get too crazy with it. Doesn't a Z06 start at like $75,000 ? Why would you pay more for a camaro than a corvette?

What add-ons are you guys talking about? This car is stripped, and won't be offered with any options (except A/C). Consider that ceramic brakes, recaro seats, a hand-built LS7 engine, and 19 X 11 wheels are STANDARD equipment. Maybe they'll sell you a flower vase for the dash!!!

Just like other performance car manufacturers (Porsche, Aston Martin, Ferrari), when they strip a model down for track performance, you pay more money.

$67,490

You can bet Mr. Rick Hendrick already has his name on the first one.

There's no official word from GM on the price so all they have is an estimate from someone.

Those that keep guessing high 40's/low 50's please read the thread before you post. Lots of great information about why that isn't feasible or expected.

They didn't NEED carbon ceramic brakes. Nor the recaro racing seats. No one asked for that, and regular seats and zl1 brakes would've been sufficient no? It'd perform basically the same. Eliminate that and how much are you saving? Where would the price be??? Thank you!

Says YOU. YOU don't think it needed carbon brakes. Guess what, I'm not going to be able to afford one but I think it's awesome that they're offering the car that way. Obviously it wouldn't have been sufficient since those brakes help significantly in being able to be 3 seconds faster than a ZL1. And the seats? For a track car the stock seats suck. Anyone doing serious racing would rip the stock seats out so they did right in making the Recaros standard. Out of the box with no modifications, this car will outperform almost anything offered for less than $100k.

Bottom line is that GM doesn't care if you're not going to buy this car because someone else will. If there's not a Camaro out there to fit your needs then you obviously only care about the badge and not performance.

I actually think they can get close to 100k for it. I would still buy one. To me this car would compete with the GT-R, Viper and 911 Turbo. I don't think this car is intended for the SS guys looking to trade up. I think Chevy is heading up market and this is the new halo car in the Camaro lineup.

Wonder if they'll post times over at the ring for this car. If it kicks ass over there the price could easily make 100k.

Last time I checked everyone on the ZL1 forums was asking for Recaro seats. I was. I also wanted the carbon rotors.

Ditto on this estimate. The car's got expensive brakes, but is de-contented enough. My best guess on marketing is below the ZL1 at around the FORMER BOSS 302 price. Although, Chevy doesn't have to compete with that anymore...which is good for Ford (and I'm a Ford guy).

GM says 3 seconds faster than the ZL1 on the "track" that is the result of demb brakes... no way THIS car sells for under 65K. And THAT may be wishful thinking. The factory hand builds about only 30 LS7s a day.

Oh and removing content ADDs cost!!

+1

THIS car will be embarrassing A LOT of cars costing way more than 100k!!

If the 5th gen Z28 is going to be priced high, how much do you think the 6th gen will be.....the Z28 might be forever out of the price range for most .... i don't see prices coming down

Despite all the speculation, I still believe the Z/28 will be priced below the ZL1. If the ZL1 MSRP starts at $54,350 then I don't think the Z/28 will be over $52,000. It is really hard to speculate about a limited production "halo car" that is only being built to make a statement. Oh sure, it will make Chevy fans happy, but this car is all about throwing down the gauntlet -- to Ford and others. As such, there may be a strong incentive to hold the price down...
