However, when it comes to handling the ZL1 is the clear winner. The Camaro was faster through the slalom: 70.8mph compared to the Shelby's 69.1mph, while on the skid pad, the ZL1 recorded a 1.03g average lateral acceleration. This not only betters the GT500's 0.98g but matches the McLaren
MP4-12C and Porsche
911 GT2 RS for the highest lateral acceleration IL has ever recorded. The Shelby GT500 tested came with the SVT Performance package, Track Pack and Recaro seats, adding $8,085 to the base price, while the Camaro ZL1 came with a $500 Interior Microfiber package, a $600 carbon-fiber hood insert, and $470 bright forged wheels.
