THIS CAMARO ZL1 MANAGES TO STAY WITH A 2017 FORD GT ON TRACK

The recipe for the Ford GT was a pretty tasty one – design a Le Mans-winning GTE car and then work back to make it road legal. 647bhp is produced from its twin-turbocharged Ecoboost V6 which powers a chassis festooned in endless aero and that can hunker down into an aggressive track mode.

On track then, you’d expect Ford’s latest supercar to tear a measly muscle car to shreds, but the specific example in this footage isn’t just any old muscle car. The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is Chevy’s hardcore, stripped-out track toy that bucks the trend of poor handling and sluggishness and replaces it with capabilities once only found in the best of European and Japanese sports cars.

Sporting a 6.2-litre supercharged GM LT4 V8 rated to a GT-worrying 631bhp, the ZL1 certainly has track credentials considering a ZL1 1LE pumped out a 07:16.04 Nürburgring lap time just last month. And as you can see from this in-car footage, even a brand new Ford GT can’t shake it off.
