Chevy pits the Camaro Z/28 against the Mustang Boss 302
While the Shelby GT500 is obviously a more powerful Mustang than the now-deceased Boss, Chevy found that the Boss 302 Laguna Seca actually performed better around the 2.9-mile MRC track. As Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheiser tells it, the Z/28's carbon ceramic brakes allows for deeper, faster corner entry, while the wider, stickier tires gives the car better peak lateral Gs. That still doesn't even factor in the F1-type dynamic damper system or the 505-horsepower, 7.0-liter V8 under the hood.
Released by Chevy, you've probably already guessed that the Z/28 comes out on top, but check out the video – posted below – for yourself to see how the new ultimate Camaro stacks up against the Mustang's "fastest track car."
