(WXYZ) - General Motors has unveiled the restyled 2014 Chevrolet Camaro line at the New York Auto Show.
The redesign includes the return of the iconic Z/28 model.
The automaker has revised the exterior design in order to better integrate high-performance aerodynamics for more efficient cooling and stability. The company has gone so far as to include an aerodynamics package with the Z/28 that will actually create downforce when the car is at speed.
“As the ultimate track-capable Camaro, this car restores the mission of the original Z/28, and serves as a testament to the expertise of Chevrolet as the best-selling brand of performance cars,” said Mark Reuss, president, GM North America in a news release. “The build sheet is the wish list of any racer: lightweight, high-revving, dry-sump LS7 engine; carbon-ceramic brakes; integrated coolers for track use; true aerodynamic downforce, and a significant reduction in curb weight. This car could only come from Chevrolet, and could only be called the Z/28.”
The first Camaro Z/28 was introduced in 1967. The new version will only be offered with a manual transmission.
It will come with air conditioning. However, it will only be available as an option.
The new 2014 Camaro line will hit dealers in the fall. The Camaro Z/28 will begin appearing at track events across the United State in the Spring of 2014.
