Edmunds.com recently posted the tale of the tape of their test data gathered from the 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 and the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. From the looks of things, the numbers are pretty close. Then again, so are the price tags between the two.
On one end, Edmunds tested the brutish Camaro ZL1, which with 580 horsepower, rockets down the quarter mile in 12.4 seconds, despite being 4,096 pounds. The more lithe Corvette, with significantly less 460 horsepower thanks to optional performance exhaust, edges the range-topping Camaro in the quarter-mile with a 12-second flat time, and a higher trap speed. Predictably, the new Corvettes has the advantage over the aging Camaro ZL1 in nearly every category, but that doesn’t mean one would still prefer the pony car. Would you happen to choose the ZL1 over the Stingray? Let us know.
