New 2018 Camaro Z28 is lightning fast

By

The Camaro Z28 is a popular track-focused car; the last generation went on sale for just under $75,000 and sold quickly. The new one hasn’t been released yet, and details are still a little vague, but from what we’ve learnt, there are going to be some big changes happening; the car is set to be a monster, going head-to-head with the likes of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350.

GM have put a lot of thought in to what should make 2018 Camaro Z28 a trackday special (and still be able to cut it on the road).

The recent 2018 Camaro Z28 news is about testing the new car on the Nurburgring, where 2018 Camaro Z28 crash occur.

2018 Chevy Camaro Z28 Release Date

Nothing has yet been confirmed by Chevy. We’ve all seen the spy-shots, including the ones where the driver got it wrong while at ‘the ‘Ring’, but best guess puts an unveiling at mid-2017, with orders being taken just after, we could even see the Z28 in the showrooms before the end of 2017.

2018 Camaro Z28 Price

As we’ve already said, Chevy weren’t lacking for customers for the last generation Z28, they were selling like hot cakes at just under $75,000. With all the updates and equipment in this sixth-generation Z28, we’d expect to see a minimum 2018 Camaro Z28 price of around $78,000 when it’s finally released.

Where do we even start? GMC have really gone the whole hog with it, aiming to really take the fight to manufacturers like Porsche and BMW.

Starting under the hood, it seems as though the Z28 will have a tweaked 7.0 liter V8, it’s been upgraded to increase the 2018 Camaro Z28 horsepower rating from 505 up to around 540 -550 BHP. This won’t make it more powerful than the ZL1, but thanks to a lighter-weight, electronic slip-diff, Performance Traction Management system and custom launch control, it should be quicker on the zero to sixty sprint; just under 4.0 seconds.

2018 Camaro Z28 top speed is expected around 200 MPH. Overall, 2018 z28 Camaro specs are spectacular.

The motor is coupled to either a 6-speed manual or lightning fast 10-speed auto transmission.

As regards the equipment, or the go-faster goodies, we’ll see aero winglets and front splitter at the front, an adjustable rear wing, improved Magnetic Ride suspension, better handling, GM’s Performance Data Recorder, thinner glass, less sound insulation, Recaro racing bucket seats (no seats in the back) and Carbon-Ceramic discs fitted all as standard, the front being gripped by six-pot Brembo’s.

It’s thought that climate-control will only be offered as an option; not so much for the cost-saving, but as a performance enhancement and weight saving.
