Feature Flick: 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Takes On 2013 Ford Shelby GT500

As we noted in our comparison test between the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500, the muscle car wars never end. Heck, neither does our test, for that matter, as we now have some visceral footage of us putting the two through their paces on the road, strip, and track – albeit not necessarily in that order.

We start off by testing both cars at a muscle car’s natural habitat — the drag strip – and lay some rubber down before we then head to our next stage: a road course. There, professional race driver Alex Lloyd flogs both cars around Gingerman Raceway and sets some scorching lap times.

Which mega muscle car emerged victorious? You’ll have to read our conclusion by clicking here, but to be frank, both cars are incredible performance machines, and an incredible amount of fun to drive. Which one would you bring home? Send us your thoughts in the poll below.
