HotRod: Brake Testing the Z/28!

Brake Testing The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

0–100–0 MPH

By Brandan Gillogly, Photography by Brandan Gillogly
Hot Rod Magazine, July 02, 2014

On the turns of a road course, the ’14 Chevy Camaro Z/28’s Pirellis grab like Artie Ziff, but what if you’re not a road racer? How do you impress your buddies with a car that’s got killer grip, 15.5-inch (front) and 15.1-inch (rear) carbon-ceramic brakes, and 505 hp? Simple, use the supercar test made famous by the 427-powered Shelby Cobra: 0–100–0 mph. When we asked Chevrolet what the Z/28 would do in a test like that, the company confessed it didn’t know. So when a pre-production car was sent to the West Coast, we teamed up with our brothers at Motor Trend to see firsthand what Chevy’s supercar killer could do.

Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago and Scott Mortara took turns launching the car from the big end of California Speedway’s unprepped dragstrip. The surface was smooth asphalt, so both drivers had to launch carefully to avoid wheelspin. With a GPS-based VBOX data logger installed in the cabin of the Z/28, they logged four 0–60–0-mph runs, with an average time of 7.08 seconds and an average distance of 327.86 feet.

Road & Track tested a field of supercars back in 2003 that included a Porsche 911 Turbo, a Viper SRT-10, a Lamborghini Murcielago, and a Saleen S7. The Turbo 911 took the crown then, but none of those cars posted a better 0–100–0 time or distance than the ’14 Z/28 Camaro.

When the guys made three 0–100-0–mph runs, they saw an average time of 13.34 seconds and an average distance of 1,087 feet. To put that into perspective, the Z/28 could back up to the stern edge of a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier’s flight deck, accelerate to 100 mph, and stop just in time to keep from taking a salty bath.

The ken miles AC cobra run was 13 seconds with a probable fudge factor since it was a handheld stopwatch.

Awesome numbers. I was wondering what the Z/28 was capable of doing this test in!

Why would they compare the braking to cars way back in 2003? They should have used the newer z06 centennial and 911 as a benchmark.

Probably because that was the best results ever posted, by them, in the test before the Z/28.

Wait. 0-100 and back to 0 in 13 seconds!? Lol that's insane!! In my V6 I'd be at 100 at about the time the Z28 was about to stop hahaha.

The Z/28 Camaro is an amazing performance machine even if some people do not like it.

0-100-0 in a bit over 13 seconds, also I can't wait to see it get a good lap in on the ring.

that may be true, but the way its worded makes it sound like they're comparing the new Z/28 to a group of cars tested in 03' lol

Thanks Bill, for showing all the non-believers a 331" small block Chevy powered car could outrun a 426 Hemi powered car. Thanks for the tube chassis, the splay valve small block cylinder heads, the strut front suspension, and the dry sump oiling system. I applaud your becoming the once king of the NA motors builders. Most of all, thanks for the racing memories and inspiring many young guys to follow in your footsteps.

Didn't Carroll Shelby have a "dollar bill trick"? Supposedly, as the story (or urban legend) goes, Shelby would tape a $50-dollar bill to the inside of the windshield, then bet his passenger that they couldn't grab the bill while he accelerated -- flat out -- from 0 to 100 mph. In the story, Shelby claimed that no one ever claimed the bill...

Hey doc, totally agree about the Z/28 and don't forget the amazing Corvette C7.

I imagine most members are aware that the last televised Continental Tire race had 3 Z/28 Camaros of the top 4 qualifiers and a Z/28 won that race in New Hampshire. I have missed some of the other past races on Fox FS1 races (formerly the Speed channel), unfortunately, but it appears that the other competitors can't match the power of these new Camaros (even with carrying an extra 50 pound race restriction). I previously was frustrated with this racing series (calling it bumper car racing), but it seems some improved racing rules have made it somewhat better. Sometimes, it seems there are too many cars on the track to allow good performance showings and passing. Also, be aware that the announcers seem to prefer to tout their European car buddies, particularly the lesser street tuner (ST) class.

Also, in the corresponding big brother races, the Corvette C7s (#3 and #4) racing teams have proven their moxy against their competition, including the European cars. The #3 C7 won the last race, and not sure which number, but the C7 has won the last 4 races.

Thought that this was worth mentioning and my opinions are not intended to put down other car manufacturers, but show my obvious positive bias toward these 2 GM awesome sport and muscle car capabilities (performance and beauty combined).

Citroen already tried the aircraft carrier test.
