The Camaro Z/28 has always been first and foremost a race car, and now it’s going back to the track with the all-new Z/28.R model. While the new model is built for racing, it still shares a lot of its platform with its production-ready sibling, which has already been named the most track-capable real-world Camaro ever produced. The Z/28.R hit the race track last weekend for a 2.5 hour endurance race that ran before the 52nd Rolex 24 at Daytona.
“The original Camaro Z/28 was designed for racing and became an iconic performance car through its hard-fought victories,” said Mark Kent, director of racing for Chevrolet. “A new chapter in racing begins this week, as the new Camaro Z/28 makes its competition debut in one of the most hotly contested series in motorsports.”
Both the production and race car models of the new Z/28 come with an exclusive LS7 7.0L V8 engine, pushing the Camaro to never before reached heights of power and performance. Did you miss the Z/28.R on the track last week? No worries—the 2014 Camaro Z/28 will hit showrooms later this year. Check back here on the blog for updates on when you’ll be able to find the Z/28 sitting, bright and shiny, (and used) in our showroom here at Pfeiffer Used Cars.
