Billed as the most track-focused production model in the Camaro's history, the spanking-new Z/28 is the poster child of the redesigned 2014 model of Chevrolet's muscle car series that was released at this week's New York Auto Show
We've seen the new Camaro Z/28 and read the preliminary specs, so how about we give you a taste of what its C6 Corvette Z06-sourced and hand-built 7.0-liter V8 sounds like? If thatůsounds interesting, make the jump over the break to watch the video.

The Z/28's eight-cylinder lump is rated at an estimated 500 horsepower (373 kW) and 470 lb.-ft. of torque (637 Nm), with the only transmission choice being a row-your-own gears six-speed manual.

The original 1967 Z/28 was fitted with a 4.9-liter (302-cubic-inch) small-block V8 producing 290 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque. Despite having a significantly larger displacement, the LS7 engine in the 2014 Camaro Z/28 weighs approximately 20 percent less, while also delivering nearly 73 percent more horsepower than the 1967 302 engine, according to GM data, but then again, that's something to be expected after almost five decades of development...
