A number of 35 key replacement components for the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro aren't available to the general public according to a recently leaked Technical Service Bulletin. Looks like the only way you can order an original Z/28 differential or front grille is by owning the damn thing.
But that's another problem in itself. All 500 units of the track-focused American muscle car have been already sold, Chevrolet announcing that 2,500 further units will be built for the 2015 model year. That's a seriously low production volume, making the Camaro Z/28 an authentic collectible. So though luck if you missed out on the first batch of this $75,000 machine.

Chevrolet built the stripped-out road racer with one thing in mind: offer a package so good and unique that nobody would be able to duplicate it in terms of looks and driving dynamics. In order to protect the special edition model from counter-fitting, a customer would need to provide the vehicle identification number of its own Camaro Z/28 to the dealership before ordering the part he needs.

That's how Chevrolet protects the exclusivity of its most special Camaro version, preventing people from buying Z/28 parts and stick them on other models. The list of restricted components includes the Camaro Z/28's unique "flowtie", brake rotors and calipers, and other parts such as wheels, fender flares, the hood scoop, rocker panels, differential, driveshaft and front grille.
