This time the ZL1 is not pitted against the Shelby GT. It’s facing a much tougher competition this time, and it comes from 1969. Well, only the fabulous body comes from 69, the rest of it is new and unbelievably awesome. We’re talking about Mark Stielow’s Red Devil ’69 Camaro – a 750 hp and 800 lb-ft monster. This should be quite interesting.
The Red Devil features a 427ci, supercharged LS9 engine and modern suspension from Detroit Speed, who makes systems for ProTouring race cars. On the other hand the Camaro ZL1 benefits from a 580 horsepower supercharged V8, lots of electronic systems and a suspension with Magnetic Ride Control.
