agreed ^ I'd say the zr1 is stupid fast lol

The C5 Z06 will smoke it. The Camaro SS is about even with an LT4/LS1 (vette) at this point, if not a tad slower. Gotta shave some weight!

the vette is roughly 600 pounds lighter than the maro and more aerodynamic thats the problem.

well, the aero does play a small role, but it all depends on the speeds. At about 120 mph, the '10 Camaro's aero drag is killing ~15 rwhp more compared to an fbody.

Is it? I don't think the new ones are. My old 68 had a big old plate that said, "Body by Fisher" (F-body).

Fisher body was the GM body "manufacturer". Almost all older GM vehicles had "body by Fisher" stamped on the sill plate. "F" bodied cars were to Camaros & Firebirds as "fox" bodied cars were/are to Mustangs.

Twin is right, G8 is the closest to the new Camaro and I don't think you'll find an "F" in the 4th digit of the VIN.

huh??

2010 Camaro SS
Power = 426 fwhp
Weight = 3860 lb
Ratio = 0.11 hp/lb

02-04 C5 Z06
Power = 405 fwhp
Weight = 3116 lb
Ratio = 0.13 hp/lb

Also the C5Z has better gearing.

A C5Z will run low to mid 12 sec stock with crappy tires and that's just in a straight line. The two cars are in a completely different class and I don't think anyone would cross shop either of the two. In the end both cars are bad arse and will be for many years to come.

Corvette's are king of the hill because they should be, GM has never looked back since the 50's with the Vette. Like the others said Corvette = Permium Sports Car & Camaro = Muscle Car

Yes you can. I cross shopped my 03 cobra with the 02-04 Z06 and in the end (obviously) picked the Cobra.
