2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28: Everything You Need to Know About the Aero Package

Mark Stielow compares the aero kit of the new 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 to the SS 1LE’s.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs. 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! [Head 2 Head Episode 52]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R.

But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD traction into a car without rear seats.

The Z/28, by way of contrast, features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28’s tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car.

Both cars are phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, “Gimme!” But only one can come out on top. Watch and find out!

This is the New Transformer 4’s 2014 Camaro Bumblebee Concept (Official)

The previously showed 1967 Camaro-based Bumblebee car will likely be used as an entry in the film before the so-called 2014 Concept Camaro Bumblebee steps in to take the first role.

Just as there’s no question that GM will use the placement of the Camaro in the movie to launch a Transformers edition of the car onto the market (as it did with the previous films), there’s also no doubt that it will look different than this concept that comes with a newly designed face, different than the one we saw on the facelifted model.

In The Set: Transformers 4 Robots Undisguised (Carscoops’s Exclusive)

While cruising around GM’s Proving Grounds center in Michigan in search for prototypes, our spies were surprised to see a filming crew for the upcoming Transformers 4 blockbuster, and together, an assortment of new Autobots, including the new Bumblebee dressed in a 2014 Camaro Coupe suite.

Other models featured on the set include the 2014 Corvette Stingray, a Bugatti Veyron Grand Vitesse, a Medium Tactical Vehicle from Oshkosh Defense (Hound,)and the Optimus Prime truck, all of which we’ve already had the opportunity to see through Michael Bay’s photo releases.

While not seen here, other vehicles that have been confirmed for the movie that arrives in cinemas next summer are the Lamborghini Aventador, Pagani Huarya, Daimler’s Freightliner trucks.

New Autobots in Transformers 4: A New Optimus Truck, Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, 1967 Chevy Camaro SS (Bumblebee) and 2014 Corvette Stingray

A new-look Optimus Prime has been snapped on the set of Michael Bay’s upcoming ‘Transformers 4’, accompanied by two mystery Autobots - but who are those robots in disguise?

The mystery production pics show the “classy” looking black and blue Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse, worth an estimated £1.6 million, and what Bay calls a “special race-inspired” electric green C7 Corvette, which we’re guessing ain’t cheap either.

The second car is a striking electric green Corvette Stingray, which director Michael Bay says is a “special race-inspired” model .

However, it has not yet been announced which characters will be played by the new cars, while speculation suggests a revival of the Deceptacon (bad guy) bounty hunter Lockdown or even Dinobots. The cast is also getting some new members including comedian TJ Miller, who will co-star along Mark Wahlberg and the regulars.

Despite building what is unquestionably the ugliest C7 Corvette Stingray in the world, Transformers 4 successfully made a pretty-looking Bumblebee out of a 1967 Camaro.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

GM designers have afforded the 2014 model with newly styled front and rear ends, which are supposed to make the Camaro look more contemporary and bring it closer to Chevy’s original sports car, the Corvette Stingray.

Moving to the rear, the first thing that catches your attention are the new one-piece LED headlamps that are completely different than those found on the European-spec Camaro, with inspiration likely coming from the 1967 and 1969 Camaros (instead of the 1968-style split units of the outgoing 2013 model).

Chevrolet also redesigned the trunk that is now fitted with a third-stop light and in some models, with a spoiler that looks like its flowing on top. Rounding out the changes at the back is the new diffuser in black that has grown in height reaching the center of the license plate.

Other notable features include the standard Recaro seats with microfiber suede inserts, a special aero package designed to produce downforce at track speeds, a limited-slip differential featuring a helical gear set, rather than traditional clutch packs, huge 305/30ZR19 Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tires and a braking system comprised of Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix rotors and fixed, monoblock calipers. Additional chassis changes include stiffer string rates and suspension bushings for improved cornering response.
