GT500 numbers in (2010)...camaro SS still faster

The review by MT confirmed it

AND...the GT500 was done on hotter roads and better tires...and still was slower and less grip in the slaloms

0-60 4.7
60-0 109ft
.81 G through the slalom
pulled at 12.7 in the quarter (only aspect it was faster in...by .3 seconds)

HMMMM...i wonder which car a smart person would buy???

35k vs 45+k...hmmmm so hard

And if this thread has been posted already...I dont care

In my opinion GT500 should be compared to Z06 or ZR1 at the moment for the "like" product Ford VS Chevrolet.

Besides... it's a boring car. I mean the interior is like China fake chrome happy. I bet it's a bunch of compressed melamine.

obviously the car should be faster than the camaro 0-60 as well. The car is just too difficult to launch with that much tq. With the level of power these cars are at (especially the GT500), the only real way to utilize it would be with a set of slicks. Ford states ~4.3 if i can recall.

If there were a Z28 then we would have a comparison with the GT 500.

And the Z28 would probably win hands down based on the current starting models. So the SS is doing as well as can be expected.

In Corvette class? Gt500? I don't think so.

I'm a Chevy guy and will get a new Camaro, but you can't say it's faster than a GT500. The GT500 has more power and is much easier to modify for more power. It's also much much more expensive. Ford can't make good naturally aspirated engines but anyone can make a fast car with a blower.

Ford does make good NA engines, with their more powerful incarnations being in australia with over 420 hp. I guess the LS3 must not be any "good" either then. Eitherway, your quote can easily say "Chevy can't make good naturally aspirated engines but anyone can make a fast car with enough displacement". what qualifies an engine as good? Chevy can't match dodge's big boy engine (viper), I guess chevy doesn't make "good naturally aspirated engines" either.



or is a "good naturally aspirated engine" one that holds up to actual abuse and keeps going and actually lasts? because fords modular's have been in Wards top 10 engines for 7 of the last 10 years. You know how many GM has had with their Gen IV's in the last 10 years? 1. And that was their hybrid. Even dodge has made it 6 times with their hemi. AND THEY RELEASED THAT ENGINE 7 YEARS AGO.

Im not dogging GM, but "Ford can't make good naturally aspirated engines" is an ignorant blanket statement.

this statement cracks me up.

426hp / 6.2 liters = 68.7 HP/liter (LS3)
400hp / 6.2 liters = 64.5 HP/liter (L99)
315hp / 4.6 liters = 68.4 HP/liter (4.6 ford)

this engine that is so "crappy" only makes .3HP less per liter than the LS3, and makes almost 4 more HP/liter than the L99

and if rumors are correct, and the new 5.0 makes 400hp thats 80HP/liter. hell even it only makes 350hp thats 70hp/liter

the GT500 is faster than that... driver error is what those times are... but the good news is that most people who drive GT500s dont have the skills to drive it any faster than the magazines do... so with that in mind, its going to be interesting to see if any street driven GT500s score victories on the street... or at the track, for that matter, on stock tires.
