Doesn't look that way. Produces 90% of torque from 3450 through 7000 RPM. Broad peak torque curve through 7,000.

2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang rated at 526 hp, 429 lb-ft

So, what do you all think GM's answer will be to this? A Z28 with a lower price point, a 1le with more power than the standard ss at a lower price point than the mustang ? Exciting times we live in.

Here is a link to the article

GM's response will be the LT4 Z/28.

vs. GM's outgoing platform +21HP, but - 52lb torque...seems that GM doesn't have very much work to do.

And actually, the R variant will be the competitor to current and future Z/28, and at 61K base, that's 14K lower than current Z/28, so they will have to figure that one out.

As far as I'm concerned, a Camaro SS with MRC isn't going to be far off the pace of a base GT350.

That's fantasy racing at its finest...comparing two cars that aren't out yet...but its fun right?

ha...u are right, but it is fun to speculate.

would you think then the 1LE version of the SS would be more apples to apples on the GT350?
then GT350R to Z/28?

R package does following:
remove back seat
remove A/C
heavy duty front springs
engine oil, transmission and diff coolers
drive modes
carbon fiber wheels
better tires
CC brakes (front only???)
chassis tuning
chin splitter

this sounds more on par with 2/28? but 14K lower price, so that is where next Z/28 needs to be? Hard to know until we find out if GM has a new NA motor in the works, for now LT4 at 650HP is all we know - then if Ford does a GT500 with FI motor...???

I have to admit, that GT350R is looking pretty nice.

The GT350R has a lap time of 7:32.19 posted on the rings official web site. That's only 5 sec faster than the outgoing Z28. The Camaro team should be able to catch it with a new Z. Probably not with the SS though.

So much for the 550hp estimates the Ford guys were hoping. This thing is definitely going to be rev happy.

and the Z/28 ran a portion of the track in the rain.....of course the Ford boys will NEVER point that out. You can't tell me that didn't zap at least a second or two off the Z/28's pace.

Of course the new Camaro SS isn't going to be pushing the pace of the GT350R. Nobody expects that.

I noticed it on the website also, even though Ford never made it official. Interesting. Plus, no video to back it up.

If they do release a video, it would be pretty interesting to compare where the two cars are at, at the point where the rain soaked track begins in the Z/28 video.

That time was a rumor reported by horsepowerkings. The official time hasn't been released. If it had Ford would have reported it.

It's on there. https://nurburgringlaptimes.com/lap-times-top-100/

I always wondered why the Z/28 didn't do another few runs in better weather. Even watching the lap video with the rain is really impressive though 160mph with the wipers on lol.

That site is not an official page for the Ring. Someone purchased the domain from GoDaddy and then website is actually housed on a US server. Likely someone just posted it up there without fact checking.

That's a rumor.

The z28 was in the rain.

Gm has stated the car runs/is capable of a 7:31.... Even before the 7:32 gt350 rumor came to be.

But either way that's different drivers different day halfway across the world.

Waiting for a same day same track same driver comparison to z28. They will need the r version no doubt.


As for what's next? The bar wasn't set very highly terms of hp and tq. Plenty of choices. Even a hopped up lt1 in a lighter chassis would work.
