Have you ever wanted to zoom past your fellow drivers on the highway in a race car? Well, now may be your chance. The Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R race car is now available to the public, but it does come with a hefty price tag.
The Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R race car bears a price of six figures. But make no mistake; this race car is the real deal. Chevrolet Racing designed the 6.2-liter V8 engine to deliver an output of 480 horsepower with ease.
The pure-action race car features all of the racing specifications a driver could ask for, including a 21-way adjustable carbon fiber rear wing. The doors, front fascia, front dive planes, and front splitter are all made from carbon fiber as well.
Designed for the action of the track, the Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R race car boasts Brembo® braes, two-way adjustable Ohlin® dampers, and antiroll bars. The race car rolls out on athletic 18-inch wheels.
The Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R race car has taken home trophies in the Pirelli World Challenge Series and the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Series.
Turns out, Chevrolet had more than just its official displays in mind at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit earlier this month, when the brand stealthily revealed what might be the first image of the next-generation Camaro.
2016 Chevrolet Camaro Teaser
Naturally, Chevrolet held a press conference at the event, where the automaker aired a slideshow with five new models to be launched this year. Among the images was a heavily silhouetted vehicle, with Camaro-reminiscent shape. Was this a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro teaser?
This model is the sixth generation of the Camaro, a muscle car that has been a staple in the Chevrolet catalog since it premiered in 1968. Hopefully a clear, official picture of the new Camaro will be released soon. Until then, all we really know about the vehicle is that it will get its debut sometime this year.

What happens when you have a pilot in a space suit try to land a plane that has only two sets of landing gear? The result: you need a really fast car to guide the pilot down safely.
The Lockheed U-2 spy plane is one of the most unique airplanes ever created. Its mission is to gather information. To do this safely, the U-2 flies at extremely high altitudes—70,000 feet—essentially in space. In order for a plane to reach this altitude, it has to be as lightweight as possible and when Lockheed was designing the plane, it surprisingly cut out a set of landing gear to save weight.
Scott Evans from Motor Trend recently got to ride in one of the Chevrolet Camaro chase cars that help the U-2 land and shared his experience in a recent article.
To help the U-2 pilot down, the Camaro driver has to literally drive just yards behind the rapidly descending plane and tell the pilot how far off the ground he is. When the plane reaches 2 feet above the ground, the pilot can finally touch the ground and land the plane. He then has to balance the plane on the two sets of landing gear until coming to a complete stop.
