Video: 1968 Chevrolet Camaro and 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Track Tested

With heavy modifications there isn’t an awful lot that separates the pair of Camaros.

Courtesy of Inside Line, this unique track test sees a supercharged 1968 Camaro pitted against a similarly supercharged 2011 in order to compare things such as torque, times, and, most importantly, soul. Comparing old with new is something most publications enjoy doing, but what's different here is that both models tested have been heavily modified. The '68 Camaro sports a host of upgrades, most notably the LS1 V8 taken from a 2002 Camaro that sits under the hooded aided by a Magnuson supercharger.

Other modifications include a six-speed Tremec transmission taken from the same car, Corvette C4 front brakes and rear brakes from a Camaro Z28. Modifications to the contemporary Camaro SS were done by Hotchicks who bolted a Magnuson supercharger to the 6.2-liter V8 with the result being around 500hp. Check out the video to see how they compare.
