The V8 is 6.2L I think, and around 420hp with about 370 torque, thats not too bad, mustang beats it though. Independant rear suspension too, altough for drag cars, I am a bigger fan of a Live Axle.
Yeah, pretty good specs and Chevrolet actually hired a designer that didn't have the artistic capabilities of a retard. The Camaro actually looks good. Which speaks a lot for an American car.
The only thing I don't like about the new Camaro and Challenger is the curb weight. Both weigh roughly 4,000lbs.
Are you serious? Sure, they are American motoring icons, but you don't need to relate everything to America. They've already pointed out that we love our torque and straight line power, but we don't need them matching their cars to our national obesity problems.
American automakers should take a hint from Colin Chapman. Lightweightedness is next to Godliness.
