This is brought to you by GM of coarse but it never gets old watching the Shelby destroy the ZL on the drag strip!



Enjoy I have watched it many times and it still makes me wonder

With all that Bail Out money you would think they could make a faster car!

Cheers

I like his final thought, although the mustang has better everything the brakes make the camaro the winner. Lol. Well still a fun watch, thanks for posting

I have banned Motortrend. Those idiots are less reliable judges than the boxing judges scoring the Paquiao vs Bradley fight. They understand the mustang is better in everyway that really counts but pick the Camaro cause you can't beat tgose brakes?! WTF.

It all comes down to..."the Payoff"! You know GM paid off Motor Trend. If the Shelby won, nobody would buy a ZL1. Car and Driver also picked the Camaro. GM must have shelled out alot of $$$

Wtf happend to dodge? They need to put the camaro into the 600s and put the viper engine in a challenger to make things alot more interesting. Talking about the viper what happend to it no reviews or nothing once they revieled it no more info on it since.

In July edition of auto week there is a drag kings section; the ZL1 and the GT500. From their "tests" the Shelby is faster, but I think it's odd that the Zl1s quarter mile time is the same as the 12.8 for the 5.0 mustang... Just thought it was interesting. Looks like the Shelby has a smaller engine, is lighter, had more horse power, is faster, has better mpg and is cheaper. Ford is really out doing itself oh and I want to add that the Shelby looks much better

Re: 2013 Gt 500 vs the ZL1

lol, i just got "Car and Driver "
the Shelby CRUSHED ( and that's putting it lightly ) the ZL1 in every major performance catagory except braking and the Zl1 only won that by 4 feet ..
but the Camaro was quieter and rode more comfortably ( in their opinion ) so it wins !!!! What a Joke ..........................

Re: 2013 Gt 500 vs the ZL1

Interesting two cars...
I am a Mustang person, however the ZL1 made me think TWICE and in my humble opinion, HOW CAN CHEVY build a car like the ZL1 and not make NAVIGATION system available!
That is a big turn off!

Answer is MUSTANG for sure...
Safe ride.
