The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro boasts a lower weight, more powerful engines, and a streamlined design that make it perfect for the track. Chevrolet has officially announced that a new Camaro race car will be hitting the track very soon. The Camaro GT4.R boasts a whole host of performance-driven features designed to make it an absolute monster on the track.
The Camaro GT4.R is based on the already-speedy ZL1. A race-tuned 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine comes mated to a six-speed Xtrac transmission with paddle shifters. Two-way adjustable Ohlins Racing coil-over dampers, a large rear wing, and front end with a splitter and dive planes are just a few of the features added to further increase the performance of the beast.
The track-oriented model has garnered attention from professional racer Jeff Gordon. Gordon, who recently took home a win in the Rolex 24 behind the wheel of the Cadillac Dpi-V.R, posted about the car on social media.
“Just found the next race car I want to drive,” he wrote.
Whether Gordon will get behind the wheel of the new Camaro race car has yet to be seen. No matter who is behind the wheel, the GT4.R is bound to leave competitors in its dust.
