Why does GM keep say stupid stuff like this? Do they ever come out of the closet, I know they still owe 2 billion in loans but come out from under your rock once in a while.

"Chevrolet has announced that its upcoming 2012 Camaro ZL1 will come packing 580 hp under the hood when it goes on sale early next year, which would make it the most powerful muscle car in America and a good deal more potent than the current top of the line Camaro SS with its 426 hp V8."

2007 Mustang super snake 605 Hp
2011 Mustang super snake 750 Hp

http://wot.motortrend.com/2012-shelb...how-65903.html

^^2012 is slated to have 800Hp^^

They did the same shit with the new silveraldo HD. The camaros aren't that great. They are fun to play around with but they body roll like a 80's caddy and they are horrible for long trips. My uncle and my friend at work both a 2011 SS.

The new camaro's aren't that fast. The 5.0 mustang's with less hp decimate them stock all day. There really is NO contest. GM sucks lately, esp with false advertising about Ford and other companies.

Motor trend used a GT500 not super snake. 2010 Hennessy Camaro is 705 Hp.

I'm with this guy:

"Motor Trend, you amaze me at your stupidity. You take a mid-range Mustang and a mid-range Challenger and pit them up against a RANGE TOPPING Camaro SS. What are you thinking?? Here is an Idea, when you compare cars, make sure they are the same trim levels. Look and learn...Dodge Challenger SRT8 vs. Ford Mustang GT500 vs. Chevy Camaro SS"

Yes it's a $100,000 car but so is the Hennessy Camaro. We can argue back and forth all day long I gotta go to bed. GM is wrong with their claim that's all I care about. I do like the camaro but I will always back up ford. It's in my families blood. Oh one more thing you half to keep in mind camaro is running a 7.0 corvette motor and the mustang is running a wipplecharged 5.4 and cranking out 750 hp.
