2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Will Be Driven By Dario Franchitti At Indy 500 As A Pace Car!

Dario Franchitti, who not-so-long-ago retired from the racing world, is going to drive the spectacular Camaro Z/28 which is about to pace the “Greatest spectacle in racing”. The race shall take place at the famous Brickyard, where the 3-time Indy 500 winner shall be starting the ground May 25th at the 98th running.

The Camaro Z/28 is in intact condition, except for the decals affixed to the doors, the hood and behind quarter panels. The Z/28 has no problems of reaching speed and holding corners with its 505 horsepower, 481-pound-foot 7.0 liter naturally aspirated V-8. The massive 305-eries Trofeo R Pirelli PZero tires grip their 19-inch blacked-out wheels that rise to hubs holding enormous carbon ceramic rotors squeezed by 6 piston Brembo calipers up front and 4-piston units out behind.


Franchitti`s will pace Indy 500 for the first time, but its nothing new for Camaro. Its first time was back in 1967. This year shall be its eight time. The Chevrolet brand, anyway, has attended the field an amazing 24 times with many cars as the years passed. Last year, a 2014 Corvette Stingray had the honor.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

The release of the modified 2014 Chevrolet Camaro also pointed the comeback of the Z/28 nomenclature. 1967 was the year when the Z/28 name was used firstly . That year a special Camaro was created to contest in the Sports car club of America`s Trans Am Two class. According to the 2014 model of the year, the Z/twenty-eight nomenclature is to the most suitable and quickest Camaro put on sale currently.

The engine that boosts such power is a  LS7, a Seven.0 liter, small block V-8, pulling out an amazing quantity of 505 horses and 481 pound feet of torque. Thanks to its natural aspiration which has fewer power than its ZL1 Camaro brother, the Z/28 lays down quicker lap times because of the better grip, improved down force and aerodynamics, a retuned suspension and some 300 pounds missing from weight of the curb.
