Camaro ZL1 vs Nissan GT-R

Pairing up the new 2012 Camaro ZL1 against Nissan’s mighty GT-R is the equivalent of bringing a knife to a gun fight. I mean sure, there is a chance that you could get lucky, but those odds are pretty slim, so the best bet would simply be not to accept the challenge in the first place. There is no question that Chevy’s new super mullet is a pure animal. It’s got 580 hp, performance traction management and enough testosterone to impregnate the state of Texas. However at days end the Camaro is still a muscle car, which means it has muscle car DNA, which means it was never meant to take on the likes of the GT-R. Yes it’s fast and to date there is no question that its probably the most well sorted production muscle car ever built. However the Nissan GT-R is a super car that was built to take on the world’s best and because of this the competition was over before it even began.

    I read the article – in fairness Chevy did tell them to bring any car to compare it to. It still was a pretty close comparison, believe it or not. I’d say it’s like bringing an RPG to a Sniper contest. The GTR is a bit more on point but the Camaro still gets the job done in it’s brutal way.

    Comparing a $60,000(rwd) sport/muscle car to a $90,000(awd) supercar, is a trial by fire to say the least but the ZL1 came out relatively unscathed.

    When all is said and done, this video seems like a glowing review of the ZL1.
