It’s hard to find a fault in the 2014 Camaro Z/28. If you are already a Camaro fan, then sticking what some believe is one of the best engines General Motors has ever made under the hood, the 7.0-liter LS7, and garnishing it with racecar-like aerodynamics and carbon ceramic brakes is a recipe for perfection. The one area of the car you could criticize and not be blamed for it though is the pricetag. The Z/28 commands an eye-popping $75,000, which fueled the discussion on this week’s episode of After/DRIVE.
Drive’s Mike Spinelli along with Travis Okulski from Jalopnik and Bloomberg’s Jason Harper recently drove the Camaro Z/28 at Monticello Motorclub in New York. They all enjoyed driving the car and praised its capability, but the question of its price was still in the air. Contributing to the Z/28’s high price is its long list of model-exclusive parts, such as the ‘Flowtie’ and Brembo brakes, which GM has purposely restricted to prevent clones.
All 500 Camaro Z/28s available for the 2014 model year have already been spoken for, so no matter how you feel about that $75k pricetag, there are plenty of people who think it’s worth every penny. The guys from Drive also think the Z/28 is worth its asking price, with Spinelli even suggesting it might be good value for the performance you get in return. Check out their mini-debate in the video below and let us know your opinion on the price in the comments.
