2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Starts at $75,000

2014-z28

The bare-bones, track-tuned version of Chevy's muscle car will go on sale this spring; the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will start at $75,000, including destination and a gas-guzzler tax — a hefty premium over the track-oriented ZL1 model ($56,050) and the base 1LS trim ($24,550). The Z/28's price also doesn't get you air conditioning: The system was ditched to make the car lighter and can be added for $1,150.

The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 was first introduced at last year's New York International Auto Show and wears unique front and rear bumpers for improved track aerodynamics, fender flares and extended rocker panels, a rear spoiler and a functional rear diffuser. Power comes from a 7.0-liter V-8 good for 505-horsepower and 481 pounds-feet of torque; a six-speed manual is the sole transmission. Carbon ceramic Brembo brakes are standard.

Inside there's a Z/28-specific matte-metallic trim called Octane, a flat-bottom steering wheel and microfiber Recaro seats; they are manually adjustable to save weight. The Z/28 is around 300 pounds lighter than the track-oriented ZL1 thanks to the elimination of several components, including the backseat pass-through, tire-inflator kit, interior sound deadening material, trunk carpet and high-intensity discharge headlamps and fog lamps. The rear-window glass is also thinner and the battery is lighter.

The Camaro Z/28 will be available to order in late January. Rights to the first Camaro Z/28, VIN 0001, will be auctioned at Barrett Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Jan. 18.

I personally think at the $75k ticket price people are more likely to opt for a Corvette. If I'm not mistaken the msrp for a 2013 Z06 was right around 75k!

The Z28 may best the new Stingray in performance but it costs more, has no amenities and is fugly!

GM is trying to pay the executives big dividends that badly? First the overpriced ELR, and now this? (CTS is another honorable entry in the overpriced list)
