The Battle Continues: Sights and Sounds of the Camaro ZL1 and Mustang Shelby GT500

During our recent comparison test of the 580-hp 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the 662-hp 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, we awarded the bow-tie the win despite its power disadvantage and slower acceleration times. The Camaro ZL1 shined thanks to its fully independent suspension and magnetorheological shock absorbers. Now, Automobile has released a video describing the staff’s driving impressions of the modern muscle car rivals.

After seeing which muscle car made it to the finish line first at Milan Dragway in Milan, Michigan, the crew took to the back roads for a trip to GingerMan Raceway.

Once at Gingerman, professional driver Alex Lloyd flogged the muscle cars around the track to get some driving impressions. Check out the video below to see the Automobile video about the two supercharged V-8 marvels.

As a refresher, we’ve included our video below with street-driving impressions from editor-at-large Angus MacKenzie and on-track commentary from professional driver Randy Pobst.
