I also agree, but if you look the AC is C67 and speakers are UQ3. We think the order sheet is not set up correct at this time.

New era for begins Camaro Z/28.R at Daytona with IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge

The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 returns to its racing roots this week when the new Camaro Z/28.R race car debuts in a 2.5-hour endurance race ahead of the 52nd Rolex 24 At Daytona. It will be one of the most production-based competitors on the track, sharing aero, engine and even axle components with the new 2014 Camaro Z/28.
Stevenson Motorsports and CKS Autosport will campaign Z/28.R race cars in the GS class of the IMSA Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge. The Daytona race begins at 1:45 p.m. EST, on Friday, Jan. 24, kicking off the 12-race 2014 season.
“The original Camaro Z/28 was designed for racing and became an iconic performance car through its hard-fought victories,” said Mark Kent, director of racing for Chevrolet. “A new chapter in racing begins this week, as the new Camaro Z/28 makes its competition debut in one of the most hotly contested series in motorsports.”
Developed alongside its production counterpart, the Z/28.R incorporates the same performance elements that make the 2014 Camaro Z/28 the most track-capable Camaro ever. To enhance grip, for example, the Z/28.R’s body shares the same downforce-generating aero package as the production model, including:
Front splitter
Rear spoiler with wickerbill
Hood extractor vent
Rockers, wheel-house extensions and front tire deflectors
Belly pan.
The Z/28.R is also powered by the same LS7 7.0L V-8 engine as the production Z/28 and employs the unique, helical-gear limited-slip rear differential found on the production model. It is standard in the Z/28, helping the driver put down more power to the pavement when exiting corners.
“Apart from series-mandated equipment and the specialized suspension components needed for endurance racing, the Z/28.R is as close to a production-spec race car as you’ll find,” said Kent.
As Stevenson Motorsports and CKS Autosport kick off a full season of racing in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge with their new Camaro Z/28.R race cars, they’ll advance the legacy of Camaro endurance racing that dates to the original Z/28’s 1967 introduction, when it was developed for the Trans-Am series. More recently, the Camaro GS.R won six races from 2011 to 2013 in the Continental SportsCar Series Grand Sport class, helping Chevrolet achieve a runner-up finish in the GS championship last season.
“The new Camaro Z/28.R is a significant advancement from the GS.R that won multiple races in the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge the last three years,” said Lisa Talarico, Chevrolet program manager for the Continental Tire series. “We expect the new engine package, suspension components and aerodynamic improvements to help our teams to further successes in the 2014 GS class. The GS class is full of great competitors, and we believe the performance level of the new Z/28.R will provide us the opportunity to contend for a championship.”
The 2014 Camaro Z/28 goes on sale this spring.

Not all of those options can be ordered with the Z/28. There are some LPOs that can be ordered but the only factory installed option is A/C and it comes with the upgraded UQ3 7 speaker stereo.

Interesting. The Z/28 is a conversion package when you check RPO V9Q. Am I reading that right? I think it would be cooler if they just had the RPO Z28.

Man, it seems like we are getting screwed, with a conversion package on a 1ss camaro. They should of giving us more like aluminum chasis and carbon fiber body panels to reduce alot more weigth to compete with the new vetts.

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. It's painful to watch people post and have no idea what they are talking about!!!

I totally agree with you, but want to know what's really painful? Talking to your dealer salesperson and having them ask you if you want the "stripe package", 20" wheels, etc.

Welcome to my world, where I interact with a polite salesman . . . who at this moment knows precisely zero about Z/28, Z/28 allocation, or ordering the car at his dealership.

But I guarantee you when the car hits the floor, they get pretty sharp about adding the ADM to the sticker. Amazing how stupid some can "act" (some for real, granted) until the rubber meets the road.

SOMEBODY IN THE KNOW WITH CONNECTIONS HERE PLEASE HELP ME.

This is from an email I just received from my salesman, AFTER I clearly eamiled him the links to articles that state otherwise:

Mike,
No there are 19 and 20 inch wheels.
There more option than you are aware of. If you'd like to come in some time I will show you.


I have sent him the websites, the Z/28 article excerpts, even the GM website, etc. that ALL report the facts as we understand them here: Choose your color from those available, choose A/C with speakers, or no A/C, and THAT'S ALL.

I am 150 miles away from the dealer at the moment, so I cannot easily go in and see his screen, but what do I say to my salesman when he insists the opposite of all we know to date is wrong?

Not saying that it won't change but as of now, you can build and order the car in any of those 6 colors.
