Motor Trend Tests The Shelby GT350R Mustang Against The Camaro ZL1: Video

Sponsored Links

The ZL1 is, so far, the most-hardcore version of the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro to come along – almost. Months after introducing the latest Camaro ZL1, Chevrolet announced the even hotter ZL1 1LE, which accomplished two things. First, it communicated to the American public that Chevy desperately needs help with regard to its naming conventions; and second, it built upon the enormously capable ZL1, unleashing even more performance through the use of aerodynamic aids, Multimatic DSSV (Dynamic Suspensions Spool-Valve) dampers, stickier tires, and the like.

That car hadn’t yet been announced when Motor Trend arranged the above comparison test with a Ford Shelby GT350R Mustang, leaving the outlet only a plain-Jane Camaro ZL1 to sic on the ultimate road-going Ford pony car. But that’s all right, as there’s plenty to uncover in such a comparison test regardless.

In Motor Trend‘s latest edition of “Head 2 Head”, we get to find out just how well Ford’s flat-plane-crank wunderkind stacks up against the first Camaro to use GM’s supercharged LT4 V8. The two cars enjoy similar MSRPs, target customers, and – as we learn late in the video – similar lap times around Willow Springs.
