If that’s not enough to turn heads and raise eyebrows, firing up the 5.0-liter V8 will. Like any true muscle car, this IROC-Z comes with a 5-speed manual transmission. There’s also a limited-slip differential to help you put power to the road.

Being a racer, this car comes with all the track-ready equipment like a painted roll cage, fire suppression system, König driver’s seat and harness, etc. It’s also outfitted with the front brake cooling ducts and other chassis upgrades included on the 1LE package offered for the 1989 model year.

This car has a solid record, having won 4 of 8 races in the 1988 season. Stuart Hayner and Bob McConnell were primarily behind the wheel. Side-by-side with the other Morrison-Cook Camaro, the team secured the manufacturer’s championship for the GT class in the 1988 Escort Endurance Championship season.

While the seller warns this 1988 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z race car needs new tires and some servicing before being tracked or driven regularly, this is still a tempting proposition. You can check it out on Bring A Trailer right now.
