Road & Track Pits the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 against the 2013 Nissan GT-RBy Ant On February 4, 2012 Under Cars
Nevertheless, we do find the pairing -2013-nissan-gt-r-premium”>from Road & Track for its latest test a tad odd for one specific reason: pricing.
You see, Camaro ZL1 with its 580HP 6.2L supercharged V8 will retail for $54,995 (€41,800) when it arrives in dealerships this spring, whereas the 2013 edition of the 545HP Nissan GT-R starts from $96,820 (€73,500) not including destination and handling fees. This means there’s more $40,000 difference between the two cars.
Having said that, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the all-wheel drive GT-R comes out as the more advanced sports car of the two being faster and more potent on the track in R&T’s test.
However, the magazine does note that the rear-wheel drive ZL1 has more character and allows for more driver involvement, even though this comes at a cost on the track.
