A car famed for its track focus, this Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is tuned even further in the pursuit of perfection

The Z/28 is a moniker that needs no introduction. Since 1967, Chevrolet have been adding this option to their Camaro’s as a special order RPO code on spec sheets, and immediately it strolled into the hall of fame. Their attempts to strike a balance between street and track paid off immeasurably, as their endeavor to manufacture race ready cars came to fruition with the introduction of the Z/28.

Since then this stealth badge has been applied to a plethora of products, with only true gearheads understanding the real meaning of the code. After the fourth generation Camaro, there was a twelve year hiatus of the Z/28 and eight years for the model itself. Although still respected in some circles, the fourth generation was suffering from the same ailments as its rivals of the time; a blossoming gut and grey plastic for days.

Just like its rivals, the semi-retirement did it the world of good, and the Camaro came back on form for the fifth generation in 2010. By the end of 2013 the Z/28 had been prepared for release the following model year, and things were looking good. Al Oppenheiser, Chief Engineer for the Camaro Program, ensured the rerelease of the Z/28 was as good as it possibly could have been.

The LS7 was forced under the hood, the same engine as the previous generation Corvette Z06 packing 500-horsepower through 7-liters. The brakes were carbon ceramic as standard, and the suspension technology was only paralleled by the Aston Martin One-77, a car with a ticket price of $1.4million. Aero dynamic tweaks here and there, some unique alloys, badging and a thoughtful rear spoiler later and the Z/28 recipe had been perfected.

The car featured here, however, is even more visceral. The Z/28 program shaved 100 pounds off the cars weight, but despite this the car here clearly loved the diet and wanted more. The vendor points out the odd color scheme is down to a huge list of body panels being replaced with carbon fiber. To focus this car for the track even more, the standard Recaro seats have been replaced with Cobra Technology counterparts.

With less than 3300 miles on the odometer, check out this Z/28 in the Motorious classifieds, with a current listing of $49,900.
