Video: Motor Trend Head 2 Head – Z/28 vs GT-R

Posted by: admin In: Main ()

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R. But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD traction into a car without rear seats. The Z/28, by way of contrast, features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28′s tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car. Both cars are phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, “Gimme!” But only one can come out on top. Watch and find out!

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 to Pace 98th Indy 500

Posted by: admin In: Main ()

Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti will drive a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 to pace the 98th running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 25 [see photos of the Z/28 Pace Car].

It’s the eighth time a Camaro has been the pace car, starting in 1967 – and the 25th time a Chevrolet has paced the race.

Chevrolet has a long, shared history with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the Indianapolis 500 and the Verizon IndyCar Series. Chevrolet was founded in 1911, the year of the inaugural 500-mile race, and the Chevrolet brothers – company co-founder Louis, Arthur and Gaston – all competed in early Indy 500 races. Arthur Chevrolet competed in the 1911 race and Gaston Chevrolet won it in 1920.

“We are excited to have Dario Franchitti lead this year’s Indianapolis 500 starting field to the green flag,” said J. Douglas Boles, president of Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “Dario’s appearance in the Camaro Z/28 Pace Car will be special for race fans and it underscores Chevrolet’s important place in the past, present and future of the Indianapolis 500.”

Camaro Z/28 Engineers Get a Grip on Wheel Slip

Posted by: admin In: Main ()

While running fast laps at several of the country’s most challenging tracks, Camaro Z/28 engineers noticed the tires were providing so much traction and the brakes so much stopping force that the wheels rotated inside the tire – an unexpected challenge that required fast thinking.

What solution did GM engineers come up with? Read on inside.

This new report from Edmunds claims that an industry source has seen the next-gen 2016 Chevy Camaro (6th generation) design, and that its exterior styling will be an evolution of the current 5th gen design, rather than a radical departure.

Although the Camaro’s platform will change drastically – from the current Zeta platform to the lighter and smaller Alpha platform (used in the current Cadillac ATS and CTS), the styling change will not be revolutionary.
