2010 Camaro V6 vs 2009 GTI

Who wins? I know the Camaro obviously has the HP advantage, but the GTI is so damn light.

Camaro will win. I just sold my 07 GTI and it basically is the same car as the 09-10 with 7hp less. A camaro V6 will run 14 flat in the 1/4 mile while the GTI mid 14's, the Camaro V6 can trap about 100 while the GTI would do about 95mph.

I also own a 07 GLI , again, same of the same, the Camaro will win. Cornering maybe not but straight line yes. Do a revo, a APR or a GIAC tune on the VW and the VW will have the lead.

Stock for stock, the camaro wins. But a simple 600 dollar flash on the gti, and it will outrun the stock camaro.

I don't know how the V6 with a flash will do. There's not that many GTI's that I see running, and I'm not sure what tune they're running- but I see them hitting in the high 13's. The fastest R32 I've seen hit right around a 14 even, I have no idea if the R32 was tuned or not. Since I don't know what the V6 Camaro tuned will do, I'll let you figure out the math.

Unfortunately there's no such thing as a tuned V6 Camaro yet.

Not much of a contest. The GTI does have a weight advantage and makes its torque a lot lower than the Camaro does but its not enough. You've gotta find the power to weight ratio to see if they're gonna be close. 2900lbs/207 hp vs 3750lbs/304 hp works out to 14lb/hp vs 12.3lb/hp. Camaro is gonna out accelerate it all day long.

But not everyone is into drag racing, it might have a significant handling advantage but I doubt it. I can't find much info, but a turbo'd fwd car is going to be very nose heavy and VW's aren't known to be exceptional handlers.

I have an 08 GTI with a downpipe, high pressure fuel pump and a stage 2+ tune and I will step all over GT Mustangs(the new ones)...., 350z's, and some firebirds, some older stock ss camaro's too and most definatley a v6 camaro....BUT they are stock I am not. So stock for stock I would say it would be neck and neck at the finish line with the 2010 V6 Camaro. I would be willing to bet a modded GTI against a stock SS would be a good fight.

Depends how heavily modded the GTI is. If its just intake/exhaust it still loses, yet its modified. If they put $50,000 into I should hope it crushes an SS.

My GTI is Stage 2+ (which means its chipped, it has a downpipe,high pressure fuel pump, and thats it.....running low 13's......it would be neck and neck with a ss from a stop....from a roll the gti would win.....

You have to compare stock vs. stock. If one guy mods, then the other guy gets mods. You could sink a $100,000 into a 1953 Studebaker and it would beat a gti or ss.

I put 1500 into my gti, and it will outrun a v6 camaro any day. and from a roll, it will stay pretty even with an ss, with the slight advantage going to the ss

Or, you could say including the price of the new car, you have $35,000. Go!

A. BS. I've seen and had to deal with a ton of annoying GTi guys, and everyone of their cars are slow. Even with tuning a other mods.

B. You put 1500 into the SS and you'll have to buy a crate engine for the GTi to keep up. Slight advantage to common sense.
