Arrow NEWS: GM restricting Camaro Z/28 parts so you can't build yourself a clone

Filed under: Car Buying, Coupe, Performance, Chevrolet

Chevrolet is apparently making it harder to experience even parts of its $75,000, track-biased Camaro Z/28. The entire 500-car production run for the 2014 model year is already either sold or at least reserved by dealers. And it will be months before assembly of the roughly 2,500-car, 2015 model-year run will begin. In theory, though, couldn't someone buy the components that make the Z/28 so special from the Chevy catalog and assemble a clone? Not so fast. It seems GM is one step ahead.

According to GM Authority, the company sent a letter to dealers that limited orders on 35 individual parts that make up the Z/28 package. The list included a mix of mechanical and aesthetic components like the brakes, wheels, differential, body flares, seats, grille and even the emblems.

This is clearly a move by Chevy to protect the exclusivity of the Z/28. As you can understand, it would harm the hardcore car's reputation if a replica could be built easily from a much more basic Camaro powered by a V6. In any case, for the time being, it also means that interested buyers must negotiate for the few remaining 2014 models left, or they have to wait for the 2015s to arrive.GM restricting Camaro Z/28 parts so you can't build yourself a clone originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 30 Apr 2014 13:28:00 EST.
