Some might call this purchase a mid-life crisis. Maybe it is, but I know it’s fun.
I don’t like this picture, but don’t have another yet.
If you don’t immediately recognize, it’s a 2015 Camaro Z/28. It’s a relatively expensive limited edition race car that’s just barely street legal. It technically seats 4, although the lucky people you allow to sit in the back seats may need some experience in extreme body contortion.
What you really need to know is that it’s just a absolute hoot to drive. At least when it’s sunny and dry outside. The LS7 engine has the power to put a huge smile on your face, and the exhaust note is like Barry White serenading you.
Did you know it’s faster around the famous Nürburgring race track in Germany than the current Porsche 911, Carrera S, and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640? Did I mention they did the lap time in the rain? No?! I should have, BECAUSE IT’S FUCKING AWESOME. Go ahead, watch the official video below.
I bought this 505 hp beast as my daily driver. Yes, I know that’s not what it’s intended for, and quite possibly stupid. Fortunately I have a job where I work from home so I don’t need to drive a lot. I drive by choice. Now that choice means the drive is even more fun. I plan on writing a little bit about living with a race car as a daily driver, and the engineering that went into making this special, special car. I’m just so thrilled it’s in my garage.
