Up until this point, we’ve seen many online magazines pit the incredible 2013 Ford Mustang GT500 against its underpowered rival, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 , but until now, we haven’t seen either of the two in depth, until MotorTrend recently released the following video of the two.
Conducted by Australian journalist, Angus MacKenzie, the video depicts the two together in an in-depth review for all-out muscle car supremacy. Rather than simply heading to the quarter mile, seeing which one is faster, and being done with it, the following video looks at three crucial aspects of these two insane cars.
The first test involves some quick blasts through Mulholland Drive where the real-world abilities of the two cars are truly tested, due to the undulations in the road as well as the average traffic conditions one may experience when going canyon carving in one of these two cars.
The second, and arguably most important, test conducted in the review, is a series of high-speed runs around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to see which car is consistently faster around the infamous track, and the result may surprise you.
The test concludes with a good-old fashioned quarter mile drag race and even through the result from that discipline may seem obvious, don’t ever underestimate the 580HP Camaro ZL1 as it turns out to be quite the performance car.
