Chevrolet has released more details on the 2014 Camaro Z/28, making it seem almost unfair to its track competitors.
In addition to the LS7 7.0 liter that makes 505HP and 481 lb-ft of torque, which is backed by a close-ratio 6 speed manual transmission, the Z/28 offers plenty of other features that should help it take the checkered flag come race day.
Some of the significant race track goodies are:
High-performance limited-slip differential (3.91 axle ratio) with rear heat exchanger that uses cooled transmission fluid to reduce the diff temps by 100 degrees.
DSSV (Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve) damper technology to maximize wheel control, a first for a high-volume production road car, according to Chevrolet.
Performance Traction Management (PTM), which offers 5 levels of performance to best match the driving situations, and to aid planting the tires at full throttle out of the corners.
Brembo carbon ceramic brakes that provide 60-0 MPH stopping distances of less than 120 feet. The 6-piston front calipers and 4-piston rear calipers even have electronic pad wear sensors to tell you when it’s time for a brake job.
With these features and more, the Z/28 looks to be a formidable opponent for the foreseeable future.
