2014 Camaro Z/28 and Mustang Boss 302 Head-to-Head at Chevy’s Private Track [Video]
Before you start wondering about the reasons behind going for the Boss 302 instead of the more powerful Shelby GT500, Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheiser explains Chevy concluded that the Boss 302 Laguna Seca is the fastest Mustang its track after testing both vehicles.
Powered by a much bigger engine (7.0-liter vs. the Mustang’s 5.0) and fitted with carbon ceramic brakes and F1-type dynamic dampers, the 2014 Camaro Z/28 is five seconds faster than the Boss 302 on Chevy’s Milford course. It’s not a shocker really and we think Chevy should’ve picked “someone” its own size.
On the other hand, Ford and Chevrolet are known for their unfair comparisons - just watch the Blue Oval's HD three-way run and you'll understand what we mean - so it's not that weird actually.
