This car could only result from Chevy, and may simply be called the Z/28."
Keeping in mind with its roadracing focus, the 1967 Camaro Z/28 had not been available using an automatic transmission or ac.
It's completely focused on track capacity, as the newest Camaro Z / 28 is perhaps not meant to compete in an unique race series. That additional speed originates from three areas:

In the front, the Z / 28 features a splitter, joined to an under-body panel that further reduces aerodynamic lift. In profile, the Z/28 features fender flares within the front and back wheels, along with extended rocking chair panels that bring to aerodynamic stability.
