Nothing tickles our fancy more than watching two of the most iconic American muscle cars - the Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro - go toe-to-toe. But, and this is a big ’but’, this one isn’t one of them.
You see, while they do possess the Camaro and Mustang plates, the former is actually the almighty ZL1 whereas the latter is the Boss 302 Laguna Seca . Sure, the 302 packs quite a punch, thanks to its 444-horsepower output. But it’s still no match for the top-end 580-horsepower Camaro ZL1.
This episode of Motor Trend’s "Head 2 Head" dives into the comparison between the American machines with pro race driver Randy Pobst taking both cars for hot laps around the Inde Motorsports Ranch in Willcox, AZ to find out which of these modern muscle cars will have supreme bragging rights over the other.
Something tells us that we already know what Pobst will say in the video, but regardless, it still makes for a compelling watch, especially if you’re actually in the market for a muscle car.
Now let’s see them put the Camaro ZL1 against the Mustang Shelby 500GT . Now that’s a showdown we’d love to see.
