Not too bad. Would have liked to see a review of the car itself, not a comparo. Especially to a car twice the price...

Anyone who watches this over in Europe will immediately see that a car costing $40,000 less is pretty much an equal in the speed dept. stock vs stock. Add a bolt-on and the Camaro wipes the floor clean against the AMG at the same track. Make it a stick shift instead of the automatic they tested and it would have done better as well.

Oh I know the Camaro did very well here and the guy wanted the Camaro in the end. It's just kind of weird to see an SS compared to an AMG.

I agree it is an odd car to compare it to. It was probably filmed before the 5.0 GT was released. Are Challengers available in England?

$100,000 AMG with 520hp 465tq vs $40,000 Camaro SS 426hp 420tq... both weight about the same...
and the AMG won? SHOCKING!!!

I guess we'll have to wait until there exists a Z28 to get a proper review and not a comparison..

I don't know why they compared the Camaro to the AMG. It's an apples and oranges situation but I predicted what would happen. I knew the AMG would be faster, but I knew that Hammond would prefer the Camaro. Great episode. This will be on iTunes in HD in a few months...

The Camaro was slow as balls but it appeared to be an L99 SS, which I would not want on the TG test track.
