The first of the first generation Chevrolet Camaro was manufactured and launched by General Motors under the Chevrolet Brand in the early 1960’s as a competition for the Ford Mustang.
The Camaro was developed over four glorious generations before its production stopped in 2002. However, it was revived in 2009 as a concept car which then became the fifth generation of Camaro.
The latest iteration of the Chevrolet classic is the 2015 Z/28 which is a track-inspired muscle car combined with sleek furnishings and comfort. The model was jointly developed with Corvette Racing and features an aluminum V8 engine with titanium valves and a dry-slump oiling system.
With special upgraded features like the Brembo manufactures carbon-ceramic breaks keeping the speeding in check, the Z/28 is always track ready. Keeping that in mind, specific arrangements for occupant safety have been made which include the electronic traction and stability control and the standard six airbags along with the new LATCH security system for the children on-board.
As a street legal car the Camaro Z/28 offers a powerful V8 engine for all the long miles you drive it for, whether it’s a road trip or just a long drive on the highway, you can speed across the roads courtesy of the magnificent horsepower output it can dish out.
There are talks of launching a sixth generation of the Camaro which will start production in 2015, to be revealed in 2016.
The Camaro series is inspired and popular and decades old but, it still has competition. The biggest would be the Ford Mustang and for the Z/28, it would be the Mustang Boss 302. However Ford is at a disadvantage as it lacks the two plus two configuration that the Z/28 has.
A great choice for both the race track and the streets, the fifth generation Camaro is already popular among the masses as the vehicular version of the popular fictional character Bumblebee in the “Transformers” movie series.
The balanced and combined features of a street-legal car and a race car are what make the latest Camaro of the legendary series an equally fitting car for a regular user and a speed enthusiast.
