Yes, the new 2016 Camaro is on its way. And yes, it will be quicker and more fun than ever before.
But the RS and SS 2016 Camaro’s are fairly tame compared with the hardcore 2015 Z/28 — for which no replacement has been confirmed.
Geiger Cars of Germany is part tuner and part showroom — giving European buyers access to many of the fastest and most exciting American cars on the market. Geiger brings over cars that are not imported to Europe whatsoever, including the Z/28.
A $16,000 engine upgrade from Geiger is the only tweak on this stunning black pack Z/28: upping the factory 7.0-liter V8 to a shocking 620-horsepower. Louder, faster, meaner and more intimidating than any other new Camaro, the Z/28 will be a musclecar legend for years to come.
