500 HP - 470 lb-ft of torque
300 Hundred Pounds less then the ZL1
Manual Transmission only.
The rims, side skirts and new spoiler front and back complement the look of the new Z/28 very well.
The engine is a 7.0 LS7 motor, that is if nothing changes in the next few months.
You can expect these components :
- Titanium intake valves and connecting rods, and sodium-filled exhaust valves
- CNC-ported aluminum cylinder heads
- Forged-steel crankshaft and main bearing caps
- High-lift camshaft
- Hydroformed exhaust headers
- 11.0:1 compression ratio, and a 7,000 rpm redline.
- 10.5-quart, dry-sump oiling system
For the Camaro Z/28, the LS7 features unique induction and exhaust systems, and delivers at least 500 horsepower (373 kW) and 470 lb-ft of torque (637 Nm).
The racing-style, cold-air induction system and large K&N air filter provide maximum air flow.
The standard dual mode exhaust system and larger-diameter pipes enable improved air flow. By bypassing the mufflers during acceleration, the system increases both the torque and sound generated by the LS7 engine.
Here are the early specification. Again nothing is set in stone.

The ZL1 Camaro options, outside of the power plant will be probably pretty close to what you will receive with this Z/28. For more information on the ZL1 specifications Camaro ZL1
