Basically a ricey tuner car with Fast & Furious aesthetics that he licensed the "IROC-Z" badge for and is selling for well over $100k each.

Perhaps it’s the 6th gen Z/28 since they won’t make a Z/28 for 6th gens?

Looks like 6LE is tanking anyway so this car is vaporware.

I realize different generations and different geographic locations may feel different about some cars..

but being a young man in the 80's in MN...'87-'88 IROC-Z's were the $hit. We were just leaving the carb days and they were affordable, fun, cool name, #racecar..lol..

honestly, if GM put an IROC-Z on the bumper sticker of the Volt my dumb ass would probalby be standing in line waiting for the dealiership to open so I can buy one.. then dropping threads on y'all saying how much better my car is than yours. I know, it's pathetic. Just something about that name IROC-Z.

I've owned a few, just sold my 87 a few months ago. For what its' worth, the car stickered for close to 20k which is equivalent to over 40k nowadays. You could get one stripped down for low teens but it would come with that god awful TBI LO3 305 or carbed LG4. So affordability was relative. But there were more options from a build perspective.

Back then, the IROC series was actually popular. I remember watching some races as a kid and always wanting one. Didn't get my first one until '95 and it was an '88. Still have the MA registration certificate for it under my keyboard.

For me, a rebirth of the IROC-Z would be rubbish. There's no race series so why bother? It's gimmicky and something tells me it wouldn't hold the heritage, much like this 6LE nonsense didn't. The closest representation I could think of is something like a street-ready version of the GT4-R car. Beyond that, just slapping the badge on one wouldn't do it for me.

My IROC experience was what gpskinzhut just posted. I liked the car and it turned heads back then. The styling worked with the stickers to me. The 1992 Z28 non-sticker styling was good too.
$100,000 for that? Not me. Imagine what you could do buying a 3k mile ZL1 for $34,000 and putting another $5-15,000 into it.

That's the only element I'm curious about. Think it's a 10k component in of itself.

I call on this one and here's why:
First of all, V10? Not a single GM production vehicle engine is currently a V10 and no leaks have made it out for a supposed V10 powerplant.
Second, IROC is a failed racing league that GM doesn't own the naming rights to.
Third and probably the most obvious, the front end doesn't look Dodge enough to be a 2019 Camaro. I mean what's that bowtie doing up in the grill like that?
