Used 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is listed for $35,000 less than original price

The Camaro Z/28 was Chevy’s counterpart for the Dodge Hellcat and the Ford Shelby, with as much as 505 horsepower (376 kilowatts) from its V8 engine. The muscle car also comes standard with carbon ceramic brakes, sticky Pirelli tires, and a stripped interior to lose its weight and make it track-ready. It first made its debut in 2014 and today, one could get a brand new Camaro for $75,000.

When it first came out of the market, it was already difficult to get your hands on one of the Camaro Z/28s. But today, a couple of first hand owners are selling the model for much less than its original asking price. In fact, prices have gone down by half according to Road & Track. Some of them were being listed for as low as $35,000 to $40,000.

And the odd thing is that these examples are not that worn out yet to be priced that low. One of them, with 13,000 miles (20,921 kilometers) on its odometer since 2014, is being sold for $35,000. Another example, on the other hand, has only been driven for as short as 952 miles (1,532 kilometers) and now has a price tag of $36,000. You can find these cars on an auto auctions website, but if you search for used cars, you will see examples with similar pricing. So this will make you wonder why these low-mileage cars are being sold for such price.

Several years after it first came out on eBay, the “DreamRyder” convertible is back on the classified ads. But this time, it appears on “the world’s largest collector car marketplace” ---that’s the Hemmings to be exact.

In retrospect, this Camaro looks like a nice throwback to the 80s. It may not be as drop dead gorgeous as the Camaros we have today but it is a good reminder of Bill Logan’s lifelong dream.

So who’s Bill Logan? Well, he’s the guy behind this 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 creation. In case you don’t know, Logan spent thirteen years in customizing this Chevy into a dream machine.

Chevrolet might retain Camaro Z/28 in its product lineup if sales continue to grow

The limited-production Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 could become a permanent fixture in the brand’s line if its sales continue to grow at the current rate, according to Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheiser. Chevrolet plans to produce just 3,000 units of the Camaro Z/28 for 2014-15, but demand for the vehicle has been strong. Chevrolet sold all the 450 Z/28 units it built in the 2014 production year, and is expected to deliver between 2,500 and 3,000 units in 2015.

General Motors may decide to keep the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 on its list of product offerings to stave off challenges from a redesigned Ford Mustang and possible Shelby performance version. Chevrolet officials recently rented a racetrack in South Haven and let reporters take the wheel of some Z/28s, with a purpose of giving them a first-hand experience of the car’s track-ready handling and acceleration.

The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is powered by a 7.0-liter V-8 engine that provides 505 hp, allowing it to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of about 170 mph. It fuel economy numbers of 13 mpg city/19 mpg highway.

GM debuts the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.R

The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is finally returning to its racing heritage when the new Camaro Z/28.R race car takes part in the GS class of the IMSA Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge, a 2.5-hour endurance race regarded as a support series for the 52nd Rolex 24 At Daytona.

To be campaigned by Stevenson Motorsports and CKS Autosport, the Camaro Z/28.R will be one of the most production-based competitors in the event, as it shares engine, aero and axle components with the new 2014 Camaro Z/28. The 52nd Rolex 24 At Daytona commences on January 24, at 1:45 p.m. EST. It is the first of the 12 races in the 2014 season.

Mark Kent, director of racing for Chevrolet, remarked that they designed the original Camaro Z/28 for racing and it has managed to become an iconic performance car. He added that the debut of the Camaro Z/28 marks the beginning of a new chapter in racing.

General Motors today announced that the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will carry a price tag of $75,000, including a $995 destination charge, but excluding the tax, title, license and dealer fees. For those who don’t know, the 2014 Camaro Z/28 will be offered in five exterior colors: Red Hot, Black, Silver Ice Metallic, Ashen Gray Metallic and Summit White.

The standard Camaro Z/28 includes one speaker, but for those who want more, Chevrolet offers a single option: a $1,150 package that ads air conditioning and a total of six audio speakers. Each Camaro Z/28 will be powered by a 7.0-liter LS7 engine, with dry-slump oiling rated at 505 hp (376 kW) and 652 Nm (481 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine is bolted to a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission, while the power is delivered to the rear wheels via a Torsen limited-slip differential featuring a helical gear set, rather than traditional clutch packs, for optimal traction.

Chevrolet has unveiled the new-look MY2014 Camaro line at the 2013 New York Auto Show. The MY2014 Camaro models now bear a revised exterior design integrating high-performance aerodynamics for more efficient cooling and stability at high speeds. One of the models unveiled was the returning Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, which boasts of a full aerodynamics package that creates downforce at speed.

Chevrolet released the first Camaro Z/28 in 1967 as a competing car in the Sports Car Club of America's Trans-Am 2 class. The first Z/28 is powered by a smaller and lighter 302-cubic-inch V-8 for enhanced weight balance. The car also features quick-ratio steering and a heavy-duty suspension for track use.

Because the 1967 Camaro Z/28 was made to focus on road racing, it was not available with an automatic transmission or air conditioning. On the other hand, the new Camaro Z/28 is not intended to compete in a specific race series. Despite that, the new Camaro Z/28 is also focused on track capability. In fact, in initial testing, the Camaro Z/28 clocked three seconds better per lap than the Camaro ZL1.

It is rumored that a patent was filed recently by Chevrolet that covers the Z28 name used on former Camaro models. This move can be justified by several reasons such as guarding the name and expectations of potential uses in the future as well as having a specific product in the works. The muscle car segment will probably be exciting in the next several years.

The badge is also something that GM has immediate plans for. One theory is that it is the replacement for the current Camaro SS model as soon as the Holden Commodore-based Chevrolet SS is released. It’s also possible that the Z28 has a better performance than the ZL1. Ford’s Shelby GT500 is really very powerful.

The Z28 name may lead to the creation of another bracket in the lower end Camaro range, particularly since Ford intends to offer a turbocharged four cylinder engine in its next generation Mustang. It has a range of four- six- and eight-cylinder range, which means that it could do better than the Camaro when it comes to board marketability. It should be noted that Ford is boldly moving towards increasing the global marketability of its pony car.

There are reports from GM insiders that the latest Z/28 is fundamentally finished. Noteworthy details include the deeper front bumper face, larger front opening under the grill and the spotlights located in deep air vents on both sides. The new car receives a distinct grill mesh in contrast to the regular Camaro. At the tail end the lip spoiler that goes the full width of the vehicle is higher.

The bumper at the rear has new face and comes with a deeper section with in-built exhaust. It will come with 20-inch aggressive-looking 'tuning-fork' five-spoke design. The hood is new and comes with a large, forward facing air scoop.

Power under the hood is the 6.2-liter supercharged LSA V8 of the Cadillac CTS-V which can offer 556hp at 6100rpm and 551 lb-ft of torque at 3800rpm.
