12 Performance Edition Sports Cars Equally Great on Track and on the Road

Chevy Camaro Z/28

This Camaro Z/28 is designed to deliver results on the track and although road-legal, the producer Chevy emphasizes its purpose is to be a racetrack competitor. Debuting in the 1960, with ties to the SCCA’s Trans Am racing series, the Camaro Z/28 was considered the best of its kind from as early as the 70’s through to the new millennium. This particular Camaro will set you back $75,000 and promises outstanding track performance and experience for the driver. Despite a 12 year break in continuous production, the return was hugely successful.

The 2014 Z/28 is amazingly 100 lbs lighter than the Camaro SS and apparently its production required 200 specifically created parts. The same as the previous Corvette Z06, the Z/28 engine is a 7.0 liter, V8 engine, reaching an impressive 505 hp. The 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 has the ability of making the awesome Porsche 911 Carrera S look slow on the Nurburgring track. Chevy claims that their ability to produce 1.08 G’s is enhanced by the installation of the R compound tires, which are incidentally the biggest ever on the front of a production car.

Nissan GT-R Nismo

This super sports car is more affordable than many others, despite its fierce and ferocious racetrack abilities. Matching its competitors and often compared with the Corvette Z06, this Nissan Motorsports ‘Nismo’ model can reach speeds of 196mph and produces a massive 600hp. Impressive features of this latest 2015 GT-R Nismo edition include increased wheel and tire width, a stiffer structure, reduced overall weight, and an improved suspension using Bilstein dampers.

Despite these enhancements, critics may doubt the Nissan GT-R Nismo’s ability to have an impact on racetracks. To squash these uncertainties, Nissan is releasing the further improved aerodynamics, suspension, and the eagerly anticipated ‘N-Attack’ package. Let’s now wait and see what those critics have got to say about that!
