For sale in our Dallas showroom is a beast that has been woken from a 12 year slumber. In 2002 Chevrolet produced its last Camaro Z28 for 12 years. In 2014 everything changed. Gone was the mass produced Z/28 badge with a mildly tuned suspension. Back is the pure performance that the Z/28 RPO stood for. This car was designed to go around a circuit quickly. That is what Chevrolet did in 2014, they brought the passion for circuit racing back to this car. Almost every part of this car screams performance and "I want to turn the corner fast!" Starting with the 505 horsepower 427 CID LS V8 under the hood to the sticky when hot Pirelli Super Trofeo R Tires. Getting into the Z you know the car means business, you are met with loads of options and leather appointment. You notice that weight savings is key to this car because the seats aren't power the door panels are plastic. The seats are heavily bolstered and definitely designed to keep you in place. Turn the key and this engine roars to life. The clutch not for daily driving is there to keep that 505 horses under control. Start your acceleration you'll notice that the traction control is working overtime until these Pirelli's are warm. This car does a few things well regardless of the temperature, makes a great noise, turns hard, and stops unlike anything you may have experienced. You may have noticed the humongous carbon ceramic disc brakes that are behind the Z/28 specific wheels. Never fading and there for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to stop quickly. It doesn't hurt that they are pretty as well. You'll also notice the Z/28 has some aero as well. The front splitter jutting out from the lower part of the front bumper and the ducktail spoiler. This car really isn't messing around. The black paint on this car gives this car an incredible visual presence that you don't get from most vehicles. It truly is a car you shouldn't mess with. The original owner ordered this car with a few creature comforts and why not really. Added was AC, Satellite Radio, and the back seat. It really is an incredible car inside an out. The features include, AC, Power Steering, Power Brakes, AM/FM/Satellite Radio, Power Windows, Power Door Locks, Keyless Entry, Aluminum Alloy Wheels, and Racing tires.
