The gap between these two LT4-powered cars ended up being smaller than we could have predicted. According to Hennessey, the Corvette wouldn't start pulling away until around 150 MPH. The ZL1 starts at $61,140 while the Corvette costs $79,450. The Z06 would probably handle better on track, but if you bought the ZL1, you would save around $18,000 and get a car that comes with backseats. We never would have thought that the Camaro ZL1 would be this good. The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 has gone in a different direction with natural aspiration
and a track focus, while the Hellcat is more powerful, but heavier. In other words, the ZL1 may be the perfect mid-point of the ultra-fast muscle cars.
