Haha, the V6 Camaro will beat the V8 Mustang. The V8's have Active fuel management so they only run on 4 cylinders during highway driving. The V6 is a 3.6L. You can see full specs here:

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.

How the hell do they make a sports car 4000lbs although thinks like the aston martin DB9 and the nissan GTR weigh in the realm of 3800 lbs so it isnt much heavier than them

At least the DB9 is pure pornography and the GT-R is a PS3. The Camaro...is a Camaro. It's impressive specs don't hide the fact that it's fat.

Haha, but if he was stayed in Japan to review a car, why would it be that? It's obvious it would be Japanese because...well he's reviewing it in Japan.

Yes i agree the DB9 is pretty good looking and with all the gadgets its clear why the GTR is like 3800lb
i dont know why it was stupid thught cos they are being built in brazil and columbia but i thought maybe there was some link to japan with it
plus the two japanese cars he tested had no relevance to the UK market
