DescriptionEdit

"The most popular version of the 1st generation Camaro, tuned by Gran Turismo."

This is an original tuned model created by "Gran Turismo", based on the Chevrolet Camaro Z28 (1969).

The following is the description of the base model.

The sole purpose Chevrolet decided to produce the Camaro was to beat the Ford Mustang at the dealerships, and to dominate the SCCA Trans-Am series that Chevy had competed in since 1967.

In the days when "win on Sunday, sell on Mondays;" was the norm, Chevrolet put a grand effort into racing, most notably the Trans-Am series, and the creation of the Camaro gave them excellent foundation to build a race car. The Camaro Z28 was the result of Chevrolet to meet homologation requirements for the Trans-Am series.

Thus, the Z28 was a potent production car, one powered by 302 cubic inch (4949cc) OHV V8 that spit out 290HP. The engine naturally could be tuned to produce much more. Because SCCA rules stated that no changes could be made to the cylinder block and heads, the engines were equipped with racing-tuned parts from the very start.

Also, the racing car bodies were forced to conform to street specs, so the 1969 road car was equipped with a lighter fiberglass bumper and a cowl induction that led fresh air into the carburetor.

The Z28 also featured four-wheel disc brakes taken from the Corvette. This option, at over $600, was incredibly expensive at the time. The Z28 marked the epitome of the Camaro brand, and the original 1967 Z28 is now considered a classic, sought by muscle-car collectors all over the world.
