Those of you who couldn’t make it to the New York Auto Show only got a couple of pictures and a video of the Camaro Z/28 to enjoy. But you and the Camaro deserve more than that. For one thing, the new Z/28 is probably the most handsome version of its generation. It is also the best handling version, and with over 500 horsepower, it is going to give the mighty ZL1 a run for its money.
So here’s a new promo video which gives you a closer look at some of the details of this track-prepped muscle car.
Camaro Z/28 is three seconds faster per lap than the Camaro ZL1. That extra speed comes from three areas:
- Increased grip: The Z/28 is capable of 1.05 g in cornering acceleration, due to comprehensive chassis revisions
- Increased stopping power: the Z/28 features Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes capable of 1.5 g in deceleration, and consistent brake feel, lap after lap
- Reduced curb weight: The naturally aspirated Z/28 weighs 300 pounds less than the supercharged Camaro ZL1, with changes ranging from lightweight wheels to thinner rear-window glass
