World-renowned talk show host and avid automobile enthusiast Jay Leno recently had a chance to sample the latest 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, which debuted earlier this year at the 2013 New York International Auto Show.

Click here for our original post on the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 from the 2013 New York International Auto Show.

And in his latest webisode of Jay Leno’s Garage, Leno shares his thoughts on Chevrolet’s latest attempt at making “the most track-capable” Camaro in the company’s history.

Official performance figures have yet to be released from Chevrolet themselves, though as it sits right now, the new 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is powered by a 7.0L LS7 V8 good for a minimum of 500hp and 470 lb-ft of torque while weighing around 100lbs less than the Camaro SS. Only a six-speed manual is offered. Additionally, purists and enthusiasts alike would note that 7.0L of engine displacement converts to 427 cu in, which is directly in line with one of the most famous nameplates to be associated with Chevy’s high performance offerings.

However, Leno was able to share that the Z/28 will cost more than the previous Camaro flagship, the ZL1, starting at $54,350 before adding the $900 destination charge and $1,300 gas guzzler tax.

Check out Leno’s video after the jump.

    “weighing around 100lbs less than the Camaro SS”
    Camaro needs to loose more than 100lbs if it wants to compete against the Mustang.
    GM’s answer to heaver cars has always been “just throw a bigger engine at the problem” instead of using high strength steel which is lighter but cost more.
    I would think that bigger engines weigh more, cost more an does little to improve handling & MPG’s………that is if one cares about MPG’s when you buy a car in this class.

    HIDs better be included with production version! All else looks good and hoping the performance #s are much improved as well.
