Chevy unveils Camaro Z/28 Indy 500 Pace Car

The North American based automaker Chevrolet has recently pulled the wraps off the new Camaro Z/28 Pace Car, which will be used for the Indianapolis 500 and will be driven by Dario Franchitti.

Chevrolet’s newest creation is aimed towards the world of motorsport and it will be used for the Indianapolis 500. We’re talking about the new Pace Car which is the Camaro Z/28. The vehicle in question will be driven by Dario Franchitti and it will easily differentiate from the standard muscle car.

“It is a tremendous honor for me to be asked to drive the Pace Car for the Indianapolis 500. As a historian of motorsport and as a three-time winner of this great race, I will appreciate every minute of getting to pace the field in the new 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. Although I won’t be competing in the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, this will be as close as one person can get to the action. I can’t wait until May in Indianapolis”, said Franchitti.

The brand new Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Pace Car has received a black exterior finish and it’s coming with an aerodynamic body kit, with the Indianapolis 500 badging on its exterior design, with 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires, with a four-tailpipe exhaust system and so on. The most important part of this model is found under its hood, where the 7.0 liter V8 engine is resting. The unit in question is producing a total output of 505 HP (376 kW) and it has a peak torque of 652 Nm (481 lb-ft).
