Hennessey Camaro SS
These are the heavy hitters. The big dogs. They're not playmakers or
finesse artists and they don't dish out assists. If the 2010 Ford Shelby
GT500 is Dick Butkus snuffing out a Jim Brown thrust up the middle, then
the 2010 Hennessey Performance Engineering Chevy Camaro SS HPE550 is Lawrence
Taylor with radar lock on Joe Theismann's right leg. And it's not just that
they're powerful and merciless, but intentionally provocative and
intimidating, too. On looks alone, either of these cars is enough to make
the drivers of other machines cower like a three-legged Labradoodle.
They are, of course, muscle cars in the rawest, most vicious sense of the
term. And they're quicker, faster,
meaner and flat nastier than anything built back when Ol' Shel and Don
Yenko were just guys. And not by a little bit either.
But which is the better beast? To find out, we drove these two
all-Americans on the street, at our test track and on the Dynojet chassis Dyno at MD Automotive in
Westminster, California. Then we did some big smoky burnouts just to piss
off the Sierra Club. By the time we were through, Greenpeace had threatened
to blockade the Inside Line garage and the Obama administration was
seriously considering a unilateral deployment of the fun police. Didn't
matter. By then the tires were shot and we had our winner.

Shelby GT500 Crushes Camaro SS! - Drag Race Showdown
When we first pitted the Camaro SS against the Mustang GT, Ford fans complained it
was an unfair race given the horsepower disparity. But
now Ford has tipped the scale way back in it's advantage with the top of
the line supercharged snake, the GT500. We head to the drag strip to see
how the underdog Chevy stacks up.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! - Head 2 Head Ep. 52
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber
Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well
known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R. But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track
Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo
V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD
traction into a car without rear seats. The Z/28, by way of contrast,
features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual
transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly
every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28's
tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are
certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car. Both cars are
phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, "Gimme!" But only one
can come out on top. Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
