GM: It’s the most track-capable Camaro ever
The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 – the most track-capable Camaro ever, GM says – is focused on one thing: going fast.
“The build sheet,” said Mark Reuss, president, GM North America, “is the wish list of any racer: lightweight, high-revving, dry-sump LS7 engine; carbon-ceramic brakes; integrated coolers for track use; true aerodynamic downforce; and a significant reduction in curb weight.”
Regarding that last item, engineers were fanatics.
“Our goal was to get rid of everything that didn’t make the car faster, and keep only what was required by law,” said Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer. “For example, we wanted to eliminate the audio system completely, but we had to keep a single speaker for the seat-belt chime to meet safety requirements.”
