Camaro Z/28 hits the track

The Camaro Z/28 has invaded Europe!

The folks from Chevrolet are currently at the famed Nurburgring race track in Germany shaking down their new super-Camaro, which was recently unveiled at the New York Auto Show.

The stripped down, track-focused muscle car is powered by a 7.0-liter V8 borrowed from the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 that puts down at least 500 hp.

GM North America President Mark Reuss is on the scene and has shared the first semi-official video of the car in action via Twitter.

Unfortunately the video was uploaded vertically and the image is squished, but the roar of the angry V8 is well worth a listen.

The Z/28 features carbon fiber brakes, a track tuned suspension, lightweight body panels and even an audio system that has just one speaker to trim a those last pounds in an effort to deliver the highest performance possible.

The Z/28 is set to go on sale in early 2014, so this probably won’t be the last you see, or hear of it before then.
