Which Sportscar has More Performance to Offer?

The Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang offer unbelievable performance levels, especially if you choose the strongest engine in each model. While both deliver on their promise of thrilling on-road dramatics, Ford has a clear advantage if you're looking at the raw performance specifications.

At the top of the Ford Mustang engine lineup is a snarling 5.2L Shelby ® GT500® Supercharged V8 engine that boasts 760 horsepower. That motor is mated to a TREMEC® 7-speed dual-clutch transmission so you can quickly reach hair-raising speeds.

For the competing Camaro, the supercharged 6.2L V8 is the strongest offering yet peaks at just 650 horsepower.
