Exclamation 2014 Camaro Z/28 price announced at $75,000

Good morning Camaro Comrades and Firebird Friends! We wanted you to be the first to know!

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Priced at $75,000

DETROIT – Chevrolet today announced the 2014 Camaro Z/28 will go on sale this
spring with a suggested retail price of $75,000, including a $995 destination
charge, but excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees.

The new Z/28 is offered in five exterior colors – Red Hot, Black, Silver Ice Metallic,
Ashen Gray Metallic and Summit White. Only a single option is available: A $1,150
package that adds air conditioning and four audio speakers. The standard Z/28
package includes one speaker.

“The Camaro Z/28 is an uncompromising performer that’s bred for the track – and
every one of its unique components supports the goal of faster lap times,” said
Mark Reuss, president, General Motors North America. “It takes the Z/28 back to its
racing roots and adds to the strong lineup of Chevrolet performance cars, including
a revamped Camaro SS and supercharged ZL1, as well as the SS sedan, Corvette
Stingray convertible and 2015 Corvette Z06, which we’ll introduce at the North
American International Auto Show next week."

The Z/28’s unique exterior is designed like a race car to produce downforce that
presses the tires against the track for greater grip – up to 1.08 g in cornering
acceleration – and faster lap times. The aerodynamically optimized design helped
the Camaro Z/28 log a lap on Germany’s legendary Nürburgring road course that
was four seconds faster than the Camaro ZL1’s and beat published times for the
Porsche 911 Carrera S and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.

Power comes from the 7.0L LS7 engine, with dry-sump oiling, rated at an SAEcertified
505 horsepower (376 kW) and 481 lb-ft of torque (652 Nm). The engine is
built by hand at the new Performance Build Center within GM’s Bowling Green
assembly plant.

A close-ratio six-speed manual transmission is the only transmission offered and
power is distributed to the rear wheels via a Torsen limited-slip differential featuring
a helical gear set, rather than traditional clutch packs, for optimal traction. The
differential works in unison with Chevrolet’s proprietary Performance Traction
Management system, allowing drivers to adjust the level of throttle and braking
intervention to match their capability and driving environment.

The Camaro Z/28 is also one of the first production cars fitted with race-proven,
spool-valve dampers, which allow four-way damping control, enabling engineers to
precisely tune both bump and rebound settings for high-speed and low-speed wheel
motions. The wider tuning range also allows dramatically greater damper stiffness
without a significant change in ride quality. Additional chassis changes include
stiffer spring and bushing rates for improved cornering response.
Lightweight, 19-inch forged aluminum wheels and Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tires reduce
unsprung weight by 49.6 pounds (22.5 kilograms) per car compared to the 20-inch
wheels standard on Camaro SS and ZL1.

The massive 305/30ZR19 PZero Trofeo R tires represent the first production-car
application in the industry and are believed to be the widest front tire on any
production car. To fully exploit their grip, the Z/28 also features Brembo Carbon
Ceramic Matrix™ rotors and fixed, monoblock calipers. The large 394 x 36 mm front
rotors are paired with six-piston calipers, while the 390 x 32 mm rear rotors are
paired four-piston calipers. Compared to similar-size, two-piece steel rotors, the
lightweight carbon discs save 28 pounds (12.5 kg) per car.

The combination of tire grip and braking power enable the Camaro Z/28 to achieve
at least 1.5 g in deceleration. With standard front brake cooling ducts, the Z/28 is
also capable of continuous track use.


Interior details

On the interior, the Camaro Z/28 features trim in a distinctive, matte-metallic finish
called Octane, a flat-bottom steering wheel and Recaro seats with microfiber
inserts. The seats feature aggressive bolsters for high-performance driving, as well
as seat cutouts inspired by the five-point harnesses found on racing seats. To save
weight, both front seats incorporate manual adjustment.

The rear seats of the Z/28 have also been modified for weight reduction. Nine
pounds, or four kilograms, were saved by eliminating the seat-back pass-through,
as well as using high-density foam in place of the rigid structure of the seat back
and steel mesh of the seat bottom.

Additional examples of weight savings include:

�� Elimination of the tire-inflator kit, except for Rhode Island and New
Hampshire, where it is required by law

�� Removal of some interior sound deadener, as well as trunk carpet

�� Use of a smaller, lighter battery

�� Thinner rear-window glass – 3.2 mm vs. the standard 3.5 mm

�� Elimination of high-intensity discharge, or HID, headlamps and fog lights

�� No air conditioning except as part of the single option package.

The Camaro Z/28 will be available to order in late January with the first cars
delivered to customers in the spring.

Rights to the first Camaro Z/28, VIN 0001, will
be auctioned at Barrett Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. on January 18.

The Z/28’s suggested retail price includes destination and freight charges, as well
as the gas-guzzler tax.

Wow. This will be a sweet car. Just won't be within my financial reach. But I think my 1LE should keep me satisfied! (Thanks to Becky!!) Now I just need to get to an event where I can actually get a ride in the Z/28 to see what that feels like!

If the gas guzzler tax is $2600 of it that's not bad.

Chris Blair poverty announced!

Due to the fact that his job won't promote and the business he's in is suffering, local man Chris Blair will not be purchasing a 2014 Z/28, despite the fact that he'd like to. Blair reports he'd also like to be able to buy "food and heat for the long bleak winter" but prospects seems slim, as dollar bills evaporate before he gets to even see the color of ink used for printing them.

Nice to finally have a price! Not the car for me even if I could afford it, but I'm sure Chevy will sell every one they make.

Now who had the closest guess on price??!!
