If you're solely interested in cars for their convenience features and creature comforts, you can stop reading now. The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, debuting this week at the 2013 New York International Auto Show, cuts weight like a high school wrestler before a big meet, eschewing stuff like fog lights, stereo speakers and standard air conditioning — all in the name of maximizing track performance. And let's face it: You don't choose a Z/28 for backseat legroom.
It's that 7.0-liter V-8's 500 horsepower and 470 pounds-feet of torque that curries favor with the muscle-car faithful, though Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays suggest Z/28 fans might be put off by questionably redesigned taillights, which he likens to those found on a late-'90s Honda Prelude. Check out the video below and see for yourself.
