Fair fight? Shelby GT350 faces the Camaro SS

Fair fight? Shelby GT350 faces the Camaro SS

These aren’t muscle cars–they’re the best American-made sports cars ever to wear these badges. But would we pony up for the Camaro SS, or the Shelby GT350 as a daily driver?

In one corner, here’s the fastest Mustang yet: the Shelby GT350, with 526 horsepower, a slick limited edition tuned from the factory—with all the goodies we’ve come to revere, like the flat-plane crank and the track-ready suspension.

And in the other, the 455-horsepower Chevrolet Camaro SS, which is the top-of-the-line for now in a very good line, indeed.

But here’s the thing: Chevrolet hasn’t readied a special new top performer for the redesigned Camaro. So until it does, it’ll be down by nearly 100 horsepower while the Shelby and its racing stripes command the attention.

Still, this is a fight that could always manage to surprise. Watch the video from MotorAuthority and see how they stack up against each other.
