A hand-assembled 7.0L LS7 engine is the heart of Camaro Z/28, boasting an incredible 505 horsepower and 481 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful normally aspirated regular production GM small block V8 ever.
Co-developed with Corvette Racing, the LS7 uses lightweight racing-quality components like titanium intake valves and connecting rods to ensure high performance and durability, even when redlining at 7000 rpm. The racing-style cold air induction system and large K&N air filter and standard dual-mode exhaust system maximize airflow, torque and sound generated by the LS7 engine. A 10.5-quart dry-sump oiling system distributes pressurized oil to protect engine components during high-g driving conditions, ensuring consistent, reliable performance.
If you’re on the race track and all four wheels of your Z/28 leave the ground during certain conditions, ride height sensors are enabled that temporarily disable traction control so that when the car lands it is still at full power, for the quickest possible lap times.
Z/28 attains the highest level of aerodynamic performance ever achieved in the history of Camaro. Carefully engineered aerodynamic elements help Z/28 produce an incredible 410 lbs. more downforce than Camaro SS at 150 mph. An exclusive, aggressively styled rear spoiler and large splitter help achieve such downforce and a hood air extractor helps cool the engine while also contributing to the overall track performance of Z/28. An optional adjustable rear wickerbill tops off this impressive aerodynamic package, when equipped.
Camaro Z/28 features Brembo® Carbon Ceramic-Matrix™ rotors and fixed, monobloc calipers like those used on high-performance supercars. The huge 394 mm x 36 mm front rotors are paired with 6-piston calipers, while the 390 mm x 32 mm rear rotors are paired with 4-piston calipers, helping to save even more weight. The combination of tire grip and braking power enables Camaro Z/28 to achieve 1.5 g in deceleration, and standard front brake cooling ducts allow for continuous track use.
