Since the recent announcement of the track-oriented 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28’s $75,000 price tag, enthusiasts have been divided over whether they think General Motors can justify the price. And that is the question we are asking in today’s Thread of the Day.

Powered by the defunct C6 Corvette Z06 ’s 505-hp 7.0-liter V-8, the Camaro Z/28 made quite an impression as it roared on stage at the 2013 New York auto show. Other performance enhancing content unique to the Camaro Z/28 include upgraded brakes (six-piston Brembo front calipers with two-piece carbon-ceramic brake rotors and 15.3-inch rear rotors), aerodynamic aids (front splitter, rear spoiler, hood vents, rockers, fender flares), retuned suspension (stiffer springs and new dampers), wide tires (305/30/19), and a stripped interior for a manufacturer claimed 3837-pound curb weight. © Provided by MotorTrend

Around the Nurburgring, the 2014 Camaro Z/28 managed a 7:37.47 lap time slotting it between the Ruf RT12 (7:35) and 991 Porsche 911 Carrera S (7:37.9). That time also placed it ahead of the supercharged C6 Corvette ZR1 fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport ZP run-flat tires (7:38) and the Camaro ZL1 (7.41:27) coupe, as well as the C6 Corvette Z06 (7:42.99).

Does the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 ’s performance features and Nurburgring lap time justify its $75,000 price tag? Share your thoughts below.
