Thought this was an awesome comparison. You always hear car media compare cars to the GTR, its nice to see a Camaro take one down (kinda). Chevrolet did a great job with that Z/28, the only thing they got wrong was the price. But for that performance maybe its not as bad as everyone thinks.

I've been listening to nothing but how much GM paid for the win. I mean after all the GTR is greatest car ever made.

You don't even have to drive it, it'll do everything for you.

Don't be so sure...



No matter who "wins" the inevitable comparisons, there's no denying that we are living in a 2nd golden age of performance cars. They all just keep getting better and better.

Thanks for the link! I enjoyed watching that, as well as their RS5 vs C63 AMG comparison

I love the GTR based on it's role as a supercar killer that only costs $100k even, but that Camaro Z/28 gets my vote. Sure we can all race stop light to stop light, and fall in love with the awd GTR, but when real men race, between these two machines the Z/28 takes my vote.

Did you guys read the motor trend article... Z/28 beat the GTR and the 911 turbo around a track, pretty crazy.
