Chevrolet is bringing back the Chevy Camaro Z/28 for 2014, and it will begin appearing in showrooms during the first quarter of 2014. GM worked for a number of years to build a new Z/28 that would proudly continue the legacy of the Chevy Camaro of the 1960s, and with the new 2014 Z/28, they built what will be the fastest version of the Chevy Camaro and also the priciest. GM is clearly proud of its latest Camaro, and it seems that even GM was surprised when this new muscle car beat the lap times of Porsche’s 911 and Carrera S and Lamborghini’s Murcielago LP640 at the Nürburgring in Germany. The video of the new Chevy Camaro’s 7:37.47 lap at the Nürburgring is going to end up being an awesome selling point for the new Z/28, so GM released a first-person version online (see the video below).
The 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 features an LS7 V8 engine that produces 505 horsepower and 481 pound feet of torque. It’s also about 300 pounds lighter than the Camaro ZL1, though with slightly less horsepower. I watched the speedometer closely during the longest stretch of the Nürburgring lap, and it looks like it topped out at 161 miles per hour. It’s impressive because not only did this Chevy beat the times posted by Porsche and Lamborghini, but it did so during a light drizzle of rain. Check out the new Chevy Camaro Z/28 in its Nürburgring run below and let us know what you think. Enjoy and Share.
Who would win in a drag race? A Corvette C6 or a classic Plymouth Road Runner?
