Introduced at the 2006 North American Auto Show in Detroit, the all-new Chevrolet Camaro concept was the unqualified hit of the event. While its retro-style long hood, short deck bodylines by South Korean-born designer Sangyup Lee were inspired by the first-generation Camaro, the Camaro concept car was all-new in substance, based on the new GM Zeta platform. At once featuring a longer wheelbase and a shorter overall length than the prior F-Body Camaro/Firebird models of 1993 – 2002, the Camaro concept combined the 400 horsepower LS2 V-8 engine with a Tremec T-56 six-speed transmission, massive wheels, tires, and brakes, along with four-wheel independent suspension, a Camaro first. The Fifth Generation Camaro was finally released for sale during 2009 as a 2010 model.
Predictably, Chevy fans clamored for a production Camaro of their own, and GM did not let them down, bringing the all-new ponycar to market with relatively few changes from the prior show cars. Enthusiastic buyers immediately embraced the new Camaro once it entered production, with some 500,000 built for 2010 to 2015 and its sales outpaced its archrival, the Ford Mustang, throughout that period. No Camaro lineup can be considered complete without the Z28 and this all-out performer made a long-awaited return in 2014 with a 505-horsepower, dry-sump 7.0-litre engine and a definite race-bred orientation. The new Z28 was immediately praised by road testers, including Car and Driver, which reported The legendary Z/28 lives on, but forget the 80s This one takes its inspiration from the original Z/28 of 1967. It’s a serious track car-more than 300 pounds lighter than a ZL1-powered by a 505-hp 7.0-liter V-8 mated to a six-speed manual. LESS THAN 725 ORIGINAL MILES!
