600 HP Firebreather Camaro vs. Shelby GT500 Mustang [VIDEO]

As featured on CAMARO5 HOMEPAGE:

Quote:
Here is an interesting video review by TheSmokingTire of the Firebreather Camaro against the 2011 Shelby GT500 Mustang. This is the first performance review of the Firebreather Camaro that we have seen. The Firebreather Camaro is a supercharged 600hp hero car for the upcoming movie Jinn [photos and details HERE]. A limited run of 50 Firebreather Camaro will be made for sale by the movie company itself (for $60,000). These unique Camaros will feature:


Eaton Blower (running 12 pounds boost)
Eibach suspension
Hurst short shifter
Firebreather bodywork (just as you see in the photos and video)


This is not a true professional technical review, but it's a fun comparison and the video provides some great eye candy of the Firebreather Camaro.

Looked like the firebreather had a sunroof = less headroom.

at 6'4" tall and 275lbs I seem to fit exceptionally well in my Camaro... I wonder if they told him about the REST of the seat adjustments in the car.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought the GT500s came with IRS suspension. So why does he say its carrying the live axle?

The old Cobras and the Roush Stangs do. Man that Firebreather sounds mean.

That review had more holes than a sieve. Both cars were pretty nice though.
