For those looking for a high-performance Chevrolet, the bowtie brand offers to crown-topping options for the Camaro and Corvette. The first is the track-focused Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE. The second is the Corvette ZR1. Both will rip around a circuit with poise and power.
But, which is quicker? Sport Auto’s latest Track Battle video pit both American brutes against one another to find out.
As a refresher, the Camaro ZL1 1LE sports a 6.2-liter LT4 supercharged V8 engine pushing 650 horsepower. Meanwhile, the Corvette ZR1 cranks out 755 horsepower from its 6.2-liter LT5 supercharged V8 engine.
Around Hockenheim Ring, both sports cars dash down the straights and carve through corners as we’d expect, but it’s no surprise which car is quicker. The Corvette ZR1 with 100 extra hp simply outguns the Camaro ZL1 1LE in the straights. At the end of the day, the Camaro clocked a 1:09.60, but the Corvette managed a 1:06.90.
