We live in an age of CAFE ratings, emissions concerns, and increasingly expensive gasoline – but despite all this, the high-horsepower muscle car wars continue. In fact, with the new 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Lagnua Seca and the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 on the market, the competition may be more intense than ever.
Motor Trend decided to let these two performance-tuned machines square off, and let professional racing driver Randy Probst pilot the two around the tight, challenging course at Inde Motorsports Ranch. Which car is deemed the victor? You’ll have to watch the clip below
We know what you’re thinking: doesn’t the ZL1’s supercharger make it more of a Shelby GT500 competitor? Perhaps. Seeing as a new, insanely powerful 2013 GT500 is just around the corner, MT promises to pit the Camaro ZL1 against the new supercharged Mustang as soon as possible. Stay tuned.
