The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is a special, special, breed. It takes an aging platform, and turns the Camaro into the shining star no one expected from the fifth-generation of the car. MSN happened to run into one of the masterminds behind the Z/28, none other than Al Oppenheiser.
They caught up with Oppenheiser while attending the Camaro5 Race in Houston, Texas who also happened to have the Z/28 on hand, beaming in its white paint hue. Oppenheiser begins by describing the work gone into the engine itself, and the cold-air intake system developed specifically for the 2015 Camaro Z/28, done in conjunction with K&N.
Most importantly, he spends a lot of time talking about the suspension on the Camaro Z/28, the masterpiece working in concert with the sticky Pirelli rubber. We love what we hear, too. Oppenheiser tells the interviewer how General Motors “took the shackles off of engineers” and told them “make it win.” Frankly, that’s awesome.
The Camaro team chose only the best in racing performance for their halo vehicle, including Multimatic, a Canadian company specializing in the 2015 Z/28’s dampening system. Their system also happens to be utilized in Formula One. You learn something new every day.
We won’t spoil the entire informative interview for you, so we’ve provided the link for your viewing pleasure located right here. Fun side note, try and count all of the Camaros you see in frame. It looks like a Camaro driver’s dream.
