2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Makes Ford Mustang Boss 302 Its Whipping Boy Around Racetrack

By Jacob Brown | October 17, 2013
Like a red-headed stepchild, like Cool Whip, or even like scrambled eggs, the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro has soundly beaten the 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca in every way possible. It doesn't even look like a competition between the two; the Ford got spanked. In a new video, Chevrolet compares the two track-oriented muscle cars around its Milford Proving Grounds race course, fondly nicknamed the "Lutz Ring." We won't spoil the results for you any more than we already have, but suffice it to say that the 505-horsepower Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 lays the smack down on the 440-horsepower Ford. It should be noted that the 'Stang is about 400 pounds lighter. But why is GM comparing the 2014 Camaro Z/28 to a car that's been out of production for more than a year now? It's the fastest vehicle that Ford has had in its recent stable; not even the 650-horsepower Mustang Shelby GT500 can keep up with it.
This week, Chevrolet has hyped up its new 7.0-liter super coupe, showing it going around the famed Nurburgring in Germany more quickly than many a Porsche or Lamborghini for that matter. It's not yet production-ready, but that doesn't mean the 2014 Camaro Z/28 isn't ready for its close-up. Watch the video below. Would you get something like the track-focused Camaro or Mustang, or would your $60,000 or so go towards something a bit more practical?
