2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 [w/video]

In the chart of automotive performance, a thick horizontal line separates track-capable sports cars from genuine racecars. Nearly every major automaker offers a sports car talented enough to circle a racing circuit with some level of competence. These gussied-up machines with their oversized wheels and flashy spoilers blast down the straights, brake hard into the corners and hold lines with tenacity – at least for a time. In practice, nearly all of them are eventually sidelined for cooked brakes, overheated oil or tires chewed unevenly to their cords. Racecars are a completely... Read More

    We love Motor Trend's annual World's Greatest Drag Race video. Now back for its fourth appearance, the idea of lining some of the world's fastest cars up for a ten-wide, straight-line, full-throttle run is, well... it's pretty freaking badass. The lineup this year boasts some impressively fast cars to be sure. The group of ten includes the following ...

    The '80s is just far enough away now that it no longer seems like an era defined by Reagonomics and neon clothing. Filmmaker Matt Clark has embraced the look of the music videos of the decade in his new short film titled Orange Orchid, set in 1987 in Chiba and Yokohama, Japan. The video features some great sports coupes of the time and is set to the song ...

    Report: GM restricting Camaro Z/28 parts so you can't build yourself a clone
    1398878880

    Chevrolet is apparently making it harder to experience even parts of its $75,000, track-biased Camaro Z/28. The entire 500-car production run for the 2014 model year is already either sold or at least reserved by dealers. And it will be months before assembly of the roughly 2,500-car, 2015 model-year run will begin. In theory, though, couldn't someone buy ...

    Chevrolet may have struck gold with the Camaro Z/28. Not only is it a great car to drive, it's also proving to be a hot seller. A rumor has emerged that the brand has already fulfilled all the orders for the planned 500-car production run. Don't worry, though. If you want a Z/28 in your garage, Chevy plans to start building a second production order of ...

The Bowtie-cladded company has one rather obvious model that lines up squarely in the sights of the Nissan GT-R, that being the ...

    Chevrolet's fanatical pursuit of performance with the Camaro Z/28 is impressive on its own. That said, we can't help but feel that there's a bit more potential to be squeezed from the track-ready muscle car. It seems that the folks at Callaway agree with us, as the aftermarket tuner has released the Camaro SC652. As you may have guessed, SC652 is an ...

    The 2014 Camaro Z/28 had a problem spinning its tires. Not doing traditional burnouts, mind, the rubber was actually rotating on the wheels. Well it did, until Chevrolet engineers noticed the vibration that it caused and fixed the flaw. Chevy observed the issue while it was running laps of the Z/28 on a track. It claims that the Camaro's aggressive ...

    When you see a golden bowtie, you know you're looking at a Chevrolet. And that's completely by design. First introduced way back in 1913, the famed Bowtie has gone through several permutations, but it's never quite been modified like it has for the new Chevy Camaro Z/28. Instead of a solid bow, as we've become accustomed to seeing, the Z/28's Bowtie is ...

In fact, he just purchased the very first production 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 here at Barrett-Jackson for a cool $650,000. Considering that Hendrick owns both a NASCAR team and a ...

That sticker price includes a $995 destination charge, as well as a still-unspecified gas-guzzler tax.

With a 7:37.47 lap time, the Z/28 emerged as the fastest muscle car ever to lap the circuit. But what was missing from that picture was how fast the king of all Mustangs, the Shelby GT500, could manage to lap the Nordschleife. Ford ...

Using the same Z/28 that just set a 7:37 lap time at the Nürburgring, Chevy brought the hi-po coupe back to its super-secret, ...
