Camaro vs Ferrari

Went to a family get together this past Saturday
thinking I was going to impress them with my new
Camaro, well cousin Anthony shows up in a 2004 Ferrari
360 auto trans he just purchased. I guess both cars got
equal attention it is a v8 not sure of the displacement
but how would my Camaro pair with the Ferrari ?

12.3 @ 113mph is sticking out in my head...180ish top speed.. (just off the top of my head..) The old 360 Modena would have no issue beating the new 5th gen.

Don't even compare. You'll just upset with the results.

Here's the closest I could find. Looks like a drivers race.

Guys...it won't be that much of a slaughter, believe it or not...I've just read a few different articles on this car, and they all peg it at a 12.5-12.8 quarter, and a 0-60 at just over 4 seconds. And while the car is a Corvette-competitor (2 seats, lightweight, etc)...If "cousin Anthony" is a sucky driver, the Camaro has a chance (assuming it's an SS).

Be that as it may...chances of you winning, JerseyMonte, are low. Race for fun - not to win, if at all.

I was thinking the same thing. When I drove one a year back, I can tell you its only because the ferrari is lighter, because the 360 spider just doesn't feel like a ferrari if you know what I mean the 360 power just didn't feel like it even deserved to be labeled a ferrari.

Sure if you completely ignore the other time posted.

Dragoneye - The only reason I personally don't like to entertain things like that is you can't count on the other guy's inability to drive for a win. I do agree with you but I always assume best drivers in both cars when benchracing. For all I know OP would struggle to get a mid 13 out of his car so to be fair I try to look at the cars ability rather than what the average Joe can achieve.

The only dumb question is the one never asked. So don't crucify him for asking. He's cousin JUST bought it, he said...chances of him getting comfortable enough with a Ferrari (which I agree; under optimal conditions would beat a Camaro), is slim. There is a chance.

Be that as it may...I also don't like "because it's a *insert brand name here*" as a reason. So I offered an alternative view.
