At least get a little closer to an apples-to-apples comparison and run it against that new Henessey.
I think that the GT500 should be allowed the same cold air induction, cat back exhaust and the same drag radials. I assume the boost for both is about the same. Now that would be a good match race.

6 tenths faster and at least 10k more yeah I think with that much $ in hand I could get it to spank the GT500 and buy a round of drinks for the entire bar after the win.

Yeah I agree, compare to the henessey one. Henessey just ran 11.6 and the gt500 is still at 12.4. Too much money for a gt500, 8k less would be a different story in my opinion

Here we go again....... .

And try 4.7 0-60 on the SS. That edmunds is inaccurate. And for $20+K more the GT500 better win. But, for less than $10K the Camaro will slam that wagon hard!

To be fair I think the cost of the GT500 is due to the components. You can push crazy horsepower through them no problem.

You can't reduce the SS to 4.7 if you don't then allow the GT500 to be reduced too. If the Edmunds drivers suck and can only get a 5.0 in the SS then they will suck on the GT500 too and "only" get a 4.3.

I really doubt that they dogged the SS on purpose and pushed the GT500 to its limits. It was probably the same driver for both

The fact is that the camaro just isn't as fast stock for stock with that car. But the GT500 needs to be compared to the Vette not the camaro

Why? Other than base price, what do they have in common?

Nothing stated in this thread should come as a surprise to anyone. It has been discussed, argued and beat to death on his forum and many others.

As for comparing it to the Hennessey S/C Camaro, we've discussed that as well. Give the GT500 a tune and drag radials and let 'em go at it.

Umm, base price and target audience?

I'll give you that the GT500 is gonna spank a SS, but j/c I would hope so for that money...

Edmunds is always a bit off on the 0-60 times... I'm pretty damn sure the SS can manage a bit better. That and the comparison is off... If we had a Z28 then you could compare but with 75 more hp and similar torque the GT500 is an entirely different beast imho.

Next comparison of this caliber:

Camry versus G8 GXP.

They're both four-doors.

Who is tired of hearing this.

I noticed that they conned the stang on the fact that it had a small back seat... WOW! I did not know that. I totally expected my pony car to have a back seat with the room of my impala. ITS A FREAKING PONY CAR!!! PONY IS SMALL. NOT AS BIG AS A HORSE, BUT SMALLER! DUH!

Maybe for some people, but not too many people I know cross-shop the GT500 and Corvette. I know I didn't. If I was looking for the best performance off the showroom floor for my $$, I would not have bought the car I did. Given all the Camaro fans on this site, I figured it would be understood that performance is not the only reason why you buy a car.

Yeah, comparing the GT500 to the SS is just as goofy as comparing a GT500 to a Corvette, but that didn't stop all the magazines from doing just that during the time there was no Camaro or Challenger to compare it to.

I'm with GL on this, the GT500 isn't on par with the Vette anymore than a 2SS is on par with a GT500. The truth of the matter is there is no Chevy that is fair to compare with the GT500...it's pretty much in a class of it's own in today's market.

I agree 100%, because the GT500 and KR are completely uncapable of doing a burn out.

It's no fun to make the car you want sound bad. COME ON MAN. No one needs your science to spoil the fun. I hate you science. :(
