NEWS: Z/28 Performance Parts Will Be Available for Camaro Owners
This year Chevy introduced the much anticipated Z/28 Camaro. With a production run of just 500 and a price tag of $75,000 the 2014 Camaro Z/28 is already sold out and out of reach of most.
Early reports said General Motors was going to stop selling certain aftermarket parts to give Z/28 more exclusivity and limit the creation of Z/28 clones. Now it seems that the General will indeed selling almost every part that makes up a Z/28.
You can buy the 7.0L engine as a crate motor, the helical rear differential with supplemental cooling, the magnetic suspension and the Pirelli Trofeo R tires. The only items not available to the aftermarket is the “flowtie”, the Z/28 badges and some aerodynamic parts like the underbody tray.
If you werent one of the lucky 500 that was able to get their hands on a 2014 model, no worries - you can build your own and even keep your warranty if you get the parts installed at a Chevy dealership, however you will spend more than the price of the actual Z/28 itself. The engine alone will set you back $16,000 without installation.
Chevy will start offering several option packages that will make it easy for you to get the parts that you want to make your Camaro perform more like the Z/28. If you're looking to create a true clone and buy all of the options packages you're probably better off waiting for the 2015 Camaro Z/28 where the will be a production run of about 2500 units.
