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.

In our recent pony car comparison test, the retro-heavy — and just plain
heavy — 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS walked away with top
honors in its debut. The big V8-powered coupe needed a new challenge. It
was time to refocus the lens. Shoot from a different angle, so to speak.
So we squared the brooding visage of our SS-badged protagonist up against
the cruelest bunch of savages we could find, the range-topping 2009 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 and 2010 Ford Shelby GT500.
Fast & Furious 4: The Cars and Trucks
FAST & FURIOUS COVERAGE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Opens Friday, April 3!!!
In the movie business, cars are expendable. They're not respected, nowhere
near cherished, subject to abuse and constantly thrashed. It doesn't matter
if the cars are Ferraris or Ford Crown Vics, the job of any vehicle in a
movie is to tell the story effectively — even if it must be destroyed in
order to do so. And in a movie like Fast & Furious (opening April 3) the
cars do a lot of storytelling. We should know; we went behind the scenes.
In October of 2007, Dennis McCarthy was hired as the picture car
coordinator for Fast & Furious, and after leasing a 60,000-square-foot shop
in Southern California's San Fernando Valley and hiring a staff of
mechanics and fabricators, he got started building the 240 or so cars that
would be needed for the production — to portray about a dozen on-screen
cars tied to a character. After all, duplicates were needed of every car to
ensure the production never had to slow down; to perform specific stunts;
and to be wrecked in the most spectacular way possible.
Using documentation from the production's picture car department and
in-person interviews with McCarthy and his hard-working team of
fabricators, Inside Line has created the most comprehensive guide to this
year's hottest movie cars. Here it is: Inside Line's guide to the cars and
trucks of Fast & Furious.

Fast New Shelby Mustang GT500 Full Test
FULL Mustang GT500 COVERAGE
It's something like trying to drive the 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 on a
roller-coaster, only there are no steel tracks to keep you from slithering
off the pavement and ending up in a flaming heap of 540-horsepowerMustang.
You can't even see where you're going, really. Hard on it, the GT500's rear
tires begin spinning just as you can see nothing but sky in the windshield.
You're on top of the hump at the entrance to Infineon Raceway's Turn 6, and
as your stomach and both right-side tires go weightless, you start a long,
long dive to the left, sliding sideways all the way down the hill and
around the 180-degree corner.
The Shelby GT500 is so torqued up with the cornering force from the
low-profile 19-inch tires and the drive from the supercharged V8 that you
can practically hear the welds popping in the chassis. But something is
different this time — palms are not slick with sweat, tires are not
threatening to let go at the most inopportune moment and steering left in
order to go right is a joy and not a reflex of self-preservation.
The 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 gets 2 mpg more on the EPA highway cycle this
year. The Ford engineers are really proud of this. But every time we make
another lap and slide down Turn 6, we have our doubts that fuel economy is
what this car is about.
Serving Our Inner Adolescent
We're behaving like adults as the Ford engineers tell us all about the 2010
Ford Shelby GT500, even as we hear a couple of the cars making shake-down
runs on the quarter-mile strip at Infineon Raceway a few hundred feet away.
And in many ways, the GT500 itself is trying to act more like an adult,
casting aside the muscle-bound character of the 2007 Ford Shelby GT500.
As the Ford people tell us, they started with the limited-production 2008
Ford Shelby GT500KR, the exclusive (1,700 examples built) and
revenue-enhancing (MSRP $79,995) Mustang produced last year. And aside
from a few fewer Shelby badges (the KR had many to spare), the GT500 is
like the KR in almost every way, except it's built at the Mustang plant in Flat Rock, Michigan,
rather than at the Shelby facility in Las Vegas.
You can tell as soon as you open the new GT500's hood, complete with
hot-air extractors. The supercharged and intercooled DOHC 5.4-liter V8 with
its truck-style iron block is still in place, but now it carries a conical
air filter in its own sealed cold-air box behind the left-side headlight,
an innovation that increases airflow while resisting power-sapping heat
soak. For the GT500, this new cold-air intake required the migration of the
iconic Cobra badge on the grille from the left side to the right side.
Camaro is King! Mustang vs Challenger vs Camaro
We pit the much-anticipated Chevy Camaro SS against its strongest
competition: the Ford Mustang GT and the Dodge Challenger
R/T. Join as we head to the hills east of San Diego to find out which one
we liked best.

the line supercharged snake, the GT500. We head to the drag strip to see
how the underdog Chevy stacks up.
