    Exclamation 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 to start at $75,000

    Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Chevrolet, Racing


    Chevrolet has announced that it will charge a whopping $75,000 for its upcoming 2014 Camaro Z/28 when it goes on sale this spring. That sticker price includes a $995 destination charge, as well as a still-unspecified gas-guzzler tax.

    Essentially a racecar for the road, Chevy undoubtedly will justify the high MSRP of the Z/28 by offering up the car's performance bona fides. In the car's press materials, the company reiterates that the new Camaro is quicker around Germany's Nürburgring than bluebloods like the Porsche 911 Carrera S and the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640.

    Enabling much of this stunning performance is a truly tremendous 7.0-liter LS7 V8, rated at 505 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque. Chevy will only offer a six-speed manual transmission with which to modulate all of that power, and a limited-slip differential is standard equipment to keep the juice smoothly flowing to the rear wheels. Race-tested spool-valve dampers with four-way control, stiffer springs and bushings, and an aggressive aerodynamics package are also standard kit.

    Perhaps the raciest bits of the Z/28 package are the tires, with Chevy saying the 305-section Pirelli PZero Trofeo R front rubber is "believed to be the widest front tire on any production car." The tires are mounted on lightweight, 19-inch forged aluminum wheels that should just fit around huge 15.5-inch, carbon ceramic front brakes from Brembo (slightly smaller, 15.35-inch ceramics stop the rear wheels).

    The only thing that your $75k doesn't buy you is air conditioning and a six-speaker stereo - that single Z/28 option asks an additional $1,150. We say skip it - racecars are supposed to be hot and too loud for music, anyway.

    I guess they don't plan on selling to many. Why in the hell would I pay $75,000 for a Camaro when I can get a Vette for the same price?

    No A/C, are you kidding me. I do like the fact that they made room for 305mm front rubber and the 505hp is a bonus but 75k ? sales tax alone is 5300.00, that's more than I paid for my DD. I say but a low mile 2012 SS for about 25k and put another 25k into it and you should get close to the performance of the Z28 and you will save over 25k. Problem solved.

    Isn't this what killed the Camaro the first time around. Over pricing it out of the market that craves it the most.

    I agree, my 02 SS cost a little over 33k in 02, that's like almost 40k today so I hear you. If they could make the Z/28 Camaro for under 50k with that performance I could make that happen but 75k is too much.
