Normally, we don’t like to spoil comparison tests in the title, because we like to route you to the original publishing to take it all in for yourself. However, with a comparison test this high profile, it’s understandably worth it.
Why? Because the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, that ol’ blue-collar pony car of yesteryear, just took down a Bavarian prince; the Ultimate Driving Machine. This is big stuff, people.
Motor Trend decided it was time step up the competition for the 2016 Camaro, which also awarded the car its coveted 2016 Car of the Year award. What bigger opponent than a car that has done so much throughout motoring history than the M3-now-M4? The results are clobbering for the M4.
We still encourage you to read the original words at the link above, but to sum it up, the Camaro walked all over the M4 with utmost driving pleasure, performance and prowess. From the 6.2-liter LT1 V8, to the sublime Alpha platform pinning the chassis, the Camaro was one big, red, white and blue home run; with a tall-boy Budweiser and cracker jacks to boot.
“I was genuinely concerned that the M4 would wipe the streets with the Camaro, and yet the exact opposite happened,” Jason Cammisa said. “The Camaro’s win was wholesale.”
Wholesale: no middle man, no retail; just pure, bang-for-your buck performance well on display.
