2014 Camaro Z/28 Parts Restricted

Thinking of building a clone? GM says not so fast by reserving these 35 parts

It should come as no surprise that Chevrolet does not want you to build a clone of its low-production track star, the 2014 Camaro Z/28. Only 500 Camaro Z/28's will be produced in its first model year (2,500 planned for 2015), and GM is doing everything in its power to keep them unique by restricting sales of replacement parts that would otherwise allow look-a-likes.

If you want the special “flow-tie” emblem, fender flares that allow such a huge wheel/tire combo, or the carbon brakes of the 2014 Camaro Z/28 for your Camaro SS – you will have to wait for a wrecked example for scavenging. Even then we wouldn’t be surprised if GM operatives repelled from helicopters, hooked up the carcass, and flew to an undisclosed location. The $75,000 supercar could definitely be a collector’s item, and GM is hoping to protect its customers’ investment. Considering that your author saw a 2012 Camaro ZL1 front fascia on the floor of a certain shop before the car had even hit dealerships, I’d say this is a wise move. Its one effort to prevent ZL1 clones was to give the carbon hood insert an astronomical price, but of course the aftermarket quickly came to the rescue.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Rear Wing 3/6

The good news in all of this, though, is that pretty much everything under the hood of the 2014 Camaro Z/28 appears to be fair game. So building a dry sump motor for your Camaro just got a whole lot easier. And you'll notice those specially designed suspension parts also did not make the cut – adjustable shocks, larger sway bars, stiffer bushings, etc. Matter of fact, we wouldn't be surprised if they already have an SKU number for the Chevrolet Performance catalog. If so, it will be more than just a handful of journalists, enthusiasts and collectors praising the 2014 Camaro Z/28.
