Apparently you have everybody stumped. I'll give it a shot, albeit probably a wrong one... 28 stands for 1928, the first year the built a camaro....? I just spent 2+ minutes googling, and I got nothing...

Now, my question(if I get to ask one, even though my answer was dubious...?): What company is responsible for the fastest sedan in the world? For bonus points, who drove it for the record attempt?

*edited because I came up with a better question*

I think it's a part # for the 302 engine. I could be wrong, and I lack another question.

Z-27 is the RPO number for the early Camaro Super Sport package, and Z-28 simply followed it sequentially..........

Packard built a automatic clutch system....... what year was it introduced and what was it called?

Actually it was first called Electromatic and was introduced in 1940.........

General Motors was the first to use ABS as standard equipment, I don't remember what year...... Cadillac started using them in 1971 but I think they were optional.

The first production car to use ABS as standard equipment was the Jensen FF in 1965.

hm...kinda late, ill hafta look later. On a semi-related note, saw one in the equipment trader from 1997 (i think) ... 400 (or 650, cant rememer) HP and gawdaful amounts of torque, mated to a 13speed tranny for under 20k. I was surprised at how cheap used ones go for. and 97 isn't exactly really old...

Well, it's not 4.2, it's 4.7 secs. The same as the Audi RS6.
The Subaru Impreza (2.0 WRX STi Prodrive PP) does 0-62 in 4.6 secs.

The WRX is 2.0 liters while the STI is 2.5 liters.

Depends on what you mean by 4 wheel steering. You mean Active 4ws only, or passive 4ws?

Didn't the prelude with 4ws start in 1988 or so? If so, there were cars before that with passive rear-steer.

Peacy, the American STI is 2.5 liters, 300 hp and 300lb/ft of torque. I do not know if everone else still get's the two liter. They must, because 2 liters is the max for WRC racing. They need to homologate a certain amount of models, and they wanted to eclipse the EVO in America with more horsepower. That is why we have the 2.5 liter engine.

The first decent production 4WS car was the Honda Prelude in 1987.

Before 1987:
- Mercedes-Benz 170VL (cross-country military vehicle) in 1938
- Nissan Skyline (not GT-R) in 1985 had 4WS, but it steered the whole rear suspension mounting sub-frame

The NSX prototype (1989) had a 3.0 V6 (w/o VTEC) and squeezed out 250 HP. This was unusually small compared to Ferrari's 3.4 V8 and Porsche's 3.6 flat-6.
Than the official release got VTEC and the power increased to 270 HP. This was also the first road car to use titanium con-rods.

I couldn't find any info about the prev usage of the engine...

Anybody???
