You've got a V6 and a flat 6, big difference
Nathaniel Young Nov 08, 2011
Yes but it has nearly 100 horsepower than the Nissan which Is also turbocharged
Scott Gracey Nov 08, 2011
Isn't the gt 2 RS turbo?
Nathaniel Young Nov 08, 2011
Only impressive six Cylinder around that is
Nathaniel Young Nov 08, 2011
I'm well aware, just proving the gtr isn't the only six cylinder around
Nick Espinoza Nov 08, 2011
As well as the price tag that comes with it and little bottom end torque. They are completely different classes.
Nathaniel Young Nov 08, 2011
I prefer porsches flat 6, five hundred naturally aspirated horses in the 4.0, and 620 in the gt2 rs
Description: But with a twin-turbo kit from RX Performance boosting the Camaro's V6 output to over 500hp, the guys at Whiteside Customs have done a phenomenal job at matching Nissan's supercar killer. A ...

At least around the ring
Mario Callirgos Nov 09, 2011
The 2012 zo6 is faster then the 2011 gtr also
Shane Heid Nov 09, 2011
I didn't forget I was just naming domestics but correct all faster, and as for the z06 it's time in 2009 was faster than the 09 gtr
Kent Sullivan Nov 08, 2011
i would like to make it clear that i am not a GT-R fanboy. i just hate the camaro so freaking much.
Mario Callirgos Nov 08, 2011
@ Shane You forgot the gt2 rs(3rd) LFA nur(2nd).
Mario Callirgos Nov 08, 2011
The zr1 (130k)and the ACR (110k) are both over 100k and the new gtr beat the zo6 in terms of speed acceleration and track time. Honestly I prefer the ACR which was not in the multiple comparisons where I got my info : (.
Shane Heid Nov 08, 2011
Its very fast but it's a long shot from the fastest or the best
Shane Heid Nov 08, 2011
@ everyone who likes your precious stupid gtr, round the ring the zo6 the viper acr and the zr1 all faster than it. All around 100k. Gtr is not the all beating car you fan boys make it out to be
Michael Palazzo Nov 08, 2011
@ Buddy ya there are some pretty good Asian cars, and don't get me wrong, I do like the GTR.
Patrick Schalk Nov 08, 2011
Fastest in terms of what Mario?
Shane Carroll Nov 08, 2011
@Anthony....my brain hurts trying to comprehend that comparison.
Mario Callirgos Nov 08, 2011
Not as dumb as getting an automatic v6 camaro giving it twin turbos and calling out the fastest car you can get for under 100k
Patrick Schalk Nov 08, 2011
Compare a ZL1 to a 370Z? Are you f*cking high? That's the dumbest thing ever. That's not even close to race on ANY track.
Mario Callirgos Nov 08, 2011
I don't think so. The gtr recently beat a 458, Z06, and a LFA in the quarter mile. Motor trend
Jesse Demasi Nov 08, 2011
Pound for pound hp for hp the zl1 will win and yea the GTR has all wheel drive but in a 1/4 mile the ZL1 with more "poooowerrr" and more tq would win but the GTR is a good car but the ZL1 would win
Vince DeMasi Nov 08, 2011
Relax guys everyone takes me so seriously haha
Mario Callirgos Nov 08, 2011
Can we all agree that THIS camaro was a bad idea the ZL1 is a good car and the Gtr is faster than both
Kent Sullivan Nov 08, 2011
@vince, ricer fan boy? youve got to be kidding me... youre the one getting all pissy because the rest of the world isnt a crapmaro fan boy.
Buddy Robinson Nov 08, 2011
Palazzo, awesome name, but kinda arrogant comment, there are numerous brilliant cars from Japan and the GTR is an amazing piece of engineering, plus, to all, 4 wheels drive is just all kinds of win, 0-60, cornering... But of course rwd is heaps more fun
Ken Madison Nov 08, 2011
Calm down Vince, that's the ZR1 your talking about, thats a corvette. The ZL1 is a track Camaro, which won't beat the GTR except in maybe a 1/2 or mile drag.
Vince DeMasi Nov 08, 2011
And the ZL1 isn't just power it's a track car which beat the Nurembergring record
Michael Palazzo Nov 08, 2011
this article claims its a GTR killer, I think it would be close, and I'm guessing the GTR will beat the ZL1 on launch, then destroyed after about 3 seconds.
Michael Palazzo Nov 08, 2011
silly asians think that a fart cannon is all u need to go fast...
Hamish Johnson Nov 08, 2011
Silly americans. Thinking all you need is poooowweeer to go fast.
Vince DeMasi Nov 08, 2011
I'm loving the hate from the ricer fan boys
Kent Sullivan Nov 08, 2011
@vince, keep dreaming
Vince DeMasi Nov 08, 2011
And the ZL-1 will beat the gtr
Mario Callirgos Nov 08, 2011
I also agree with Shane.
Mario Callirgos Nov 08, 2011
The last comparo the gtr was faster to 60. Faster around the track and still cheaper as tested. The zo6 had the optional zr1 suspension and carbon fiber package It was around 95-98k. Also faster on the nurburg
Ken Madison Nov 08, 2011
Patrick is right. A $70,000 Z06 beats the GTR :) have a good day, it's been proven.
Shane Carroll Nov 08, 2011
I just wanna know why they'd build up a V6 Camaro. Anyone who really wants a Camaro is gonna get a V8
Patrick Schalk Nov 08, 2011
Z06 also beats the GTR
Brady Fereday Nov 08, 2011
Lol the ss can't beat the gtr no camaro will ever beat the gtr… now that's what the vette is for well the zr1 at least that's the only gm car that can beat the gtr and I would have the gtr over anything this camaro will never be as good as a gtr
Vince DeMasi Nov 08, 2011
All you guys trashing the camaro just remember that this is a V6 camaro not an ss if the ss was built up completely just without power adders I'm sure it would keep up if not beat the gtr but not the V6
Devin Babyn Nov 08, 2011
There no possible way this thing can handle as well as the GT-R no matter how much they put into this car
Patrick Schalk Nov 08, 2011
None of you wieners know how this will perform. While I too have my doubts, this thing hasn't hit a track yet.
Ken Madison Nov 08, 2011
This probably has over 500 rwhp, the GTR has 530 at the crank, so let's say 480 at the wheels, maybe 470. From a .2l larger engine
Scott Childs Nov 08, 2011
How much do they have to spend on a stock Camaro, just to make the numbers look like they can compete? All that, when the GT-R is turn key badness, and will still smoke the heavily modified Camaro!!!
Brady Fereday Nov 08, 2011
Lol this is stupid any car can number match the gtr but it wont be as good as it -_-
Mario Callirgos Nov 08, 2011
Not that the camaro is bad it's just the gtr is that good
Kent Sullivan Nov 08, 2011
yeah this doesnt hold a candle to the GT-R. not in performance or in looks. 500hp or not, the camaro sucks.
Mario Callirgos Nov 08, 2011
There is no way this could take on a gtr on performance
Buddy Robinson Nov 08, 2011
I like it. Small engines FTW!
Chandler Ryan Stout Nov 08, 2011
Boring or not, i'd drive it
Garrett Carpenter Nov 08, 2011
Yah it's old news. Nothing special anymore. Plus, this one isn't all that much to begin with. Quite boring actually.
Igor Natsioks Nov 08, 2011
Im so tired of these comaros..... There is 2500 different tuner editions already. Starting to be like civics, but faster and American.
Patrick Schalk Nov 08, 2011
That's pretty mean lookin. I like
Matthew Crighton Nov 08, 2011
Its cool, but they didnt fo much on the exterior exept for the wing and a cool paint job.
Jordan Smith Nov 08, 2011
The brake calipers should have been green.
Freddy Garcia Nov 08, 2011
I'm not a fan of cams but this is beast
Zachary Maurer Nov 08, 2011
That's a cool engine cover
Tim Puckett Dec 02, 2011
Idiots it does have paddle shifters
Eric Michael Beaudoin Nov 08, 2011
Yeah, auto is lame. At least the GTR has those dang paddles.
Connor Howard Nov 08, 2011
Auto? Boo. That's no fun
Shane Carroll Nov 08, 2011
A V6, with an auto. Where'd they get it, a rental car company?
Brian W. Soper Nov 08, 2011
Why would anyone do all this upgrading to an auto!
Josh Willes Nov 08, 2011
People can't seem to understand that your not driving a car if it's an automatic, your just aiming it.
Rocky Rock Nov 08, 2011
Uh oh, it's an autotragic
