In the last episode of Fifth Gear, Jason Plato decided to try his hand at reviewing the 2010/2011 Camaro SS and boy did he take advantage of it! Right off the bat, Plato explains that this beast of a muscle car runs the 0-60mph sprint in under five seconds which is one second faster than the Porsche Cayman. That shouldn’t be too hard to believe considering the Camaro SS also runs with 426bhp which is about 150 more horsepower than the Cayman.

The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS is powered by a 6.2L V8 engine and contains fuel-saving Active Fuel Management on automatic-equipped combinations or a six-speed manual transmission. It also features an FE3 (performance) suspension and a lower ride height.

Want to hear what Jason Plato thought about the Camaro SS? Well, you know we are not going to spoil it so just check out the video to see for yourself!

Well, for all the muscle car that I have known, I would say that bumblebee is great! I like the aggressiveness and high performance of this car.

What? How come that he compare muscle car in a sportscar? However, I believe that the speed performance of the Porsche cayman is not that impressive but I didn’t know that it could lose over a Camaro.

Mustang’s live axle is miles better than the torsion bar semi-independent rear suspension that most hot hatches have. Hot hatches get all the praise in British TV simply because the manufacturers are the sponsors of the shows, not because they have half-decent handling

If people can put "classic" Pontiac Firebird clips on, I’m sure a "classic" Vauxhall Calibra-esqe clip would be possible.

Mustangs have a turning circle of approximately 10 m, road holding of .91 G, and width of 1.9m. This more than matches enthusiast cars like the BMW 335i, which coincidentally is the price a RHD-converted muscle car would set you back. For the massive amounts of power and
style on tap, it certainly does prove an intriguing proposition.

You’re right, the engine makes a lot of difference, which is why most magazines chose the Mustang as a superior vehicle. It sounds better than the Camaro (most preferred the challenger srt8 engine note to both, however) and outperforms it in every category. Aftermarket gains have the edge going to the Mustang as well, and that was a shocker considering how easy the LS3 is to mod.

I can’t wait to see Chevy come out with the Camaro Z28 - should be a great contender for the legendary GT500... even if it doesn’t compete with that, the GT350 will also be a good match! Just my opinion.

Its suppose to have slight oversteer its a rear wheel drive car(DUH!). and you cant compare a muscle car to a SUV which is what the caymen is.
