Matt Farah seems to be as in love with the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 as we are. His ride in this white Z/28 gave him flashbacks to his trip to Watkins Glenn, where he noted the amazing turn-in and braking capabilities. He praises Al Oppenheiser and company for the mindful work they’ve put into developing the chassis.
Something everyone seems to love about the fifth-generation Camaro Z/28 is the lack of brake fade, and its ability to take a beating. And let’s not overlook the stout LS7 powerplant delivering 505 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque in this application. The on-tap power makes for a very fun drive.
Of course, getting a Camaro to be this extreme does come with compromise. The Z/28 was meant primarily for the track, and isn’t exactly the ideal candidate for a daily driver. That said, the upcoming Camaro ZL1 is said to be a jack of all trades, aiming to excel at both grand touring and track performance.
