I really do like the English goof balls on top gear. But they are seriously misleading the viewers. That HP was taken at the wheels on a portable DYNO and i am sure they were not at SAE environmental conditions. My Uncle has a GT 500 and it feels and drives like it has all of 500HP. Yea it is only good for a straight line and is super heavy, but they do look pretty kick ass. His uncle had a orig '65 shelby gt 350 that he sold after the third trany het put in it. wish he could have that one back.

Anyways...the price range that the camaro competes in....it beats em all...will even run the GT500.

The GT500 was overrated at 500 bHP...it was really pumpin out 400 bhp...search top gear gt500.

Silly ford....overrating thier engines...supposed to be the other way around.
Hmmmm....I guess I got a ringer then, because mine put down 443rwhp in stock trim with only 500 miles on the odometer.

Camaro's super heavy. The GT500 has a stick-axle.

Here's the review - http://www.gmhightechperformance.com...ure/index.html

11.97 @118MPH not bad for a 5 year old vette.

That was a good article. I have the issue and read it all the time. On the same token, they drive on a prep'd track with a good driver who's goal is driving the pizz out of the car, unlike the wine and cheese rags' who do roll starts, don't powershift, and try testing on pebble riden concrete. I'm not taking away from the 'Vette though. I hope that the SS will put down some numbers that are close. Those heavy/tall wheels and tires aren't going to help though. Still, I'm not discouraged at all
