The Mustang vs Camaro rivalry has been ongoing for decades. Through one-upmanship, lap times and performance figures, some of the best from Chevrolet and Ford has come through the Camaro and Mustang nameplates.
In 2017, the rivalry isn’t just the ongoing, it’s hotter. The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and 2017 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R represent the top dogs of both pony cars turned sports cars. So, naturally, a Head 2 Head was in order from Motor Trend.
The 2017 Camaro ZL1 takes the win when it comes to performance and outright numbers. It has more horsepower, more torque and downright outperforms the Mustang GT350R on the track.
However, there’s no denying there’s something a little more visceral and raw about the Shelby. It sounds better, it’s dramatic and those feelings convey more than the more powerful ZL1.
But, battles aren’t fought and won solely with feelings. To find out how this comparison shakes out, you’ll have to press play above.
