Proof Camaro and Corvette are on Equal Footing in the GM Hierarchy

For years Team Camaro was forced to keep a degree of separation between their car and the Corvette…

With 2017 Camaro ZL1 gaining a a new aluminum architecture, and the same supercharged, 650-hp, 6.2-liter V8 as the C7 Corvette Z06, the Camaro finally has the brawn to box with its big brother.

Watch tuner John Hennessey demonstrate:

The ZL1 hangs surprisingly well with the 359-lb lighter Z06, and there’s no 10-speed trickery here, both cars use manual gearboxes–7 shots for the ‘Vette, 6 for the ZL1–and both get top shelf rubber from Michelin and Goodyear, respectively.

It’s Camaro vs. Everybody, even kin…
