​Ford Shelby GT350 Vs. Chevy Camaro SS: Video Throwdown Page 2

You'll have to physically restrain yourself from adding 10 miles per hour to the speedo every time.

These badasses have some down sides, but they're no deal-killers. There are a few more in the Mustang column, though.

It's bigger, longer, and a little heavier than the Camaro, and it feels like it. The interior's better than before, but there's a lot going on, visually. We're not in love with some of the janky little details like the light pipes up front or the why-bother passenger-side dash binnacle.

The Camaro? We dare you to back up in it without using the rearview camera. The back seat's not a back seat, it's a backpack containment facility. The cockpit's a big upgrade, but the sheetmetal hardly looks any different than the fifth-gen car.

We're in deep with both of these all-American sportscars, but one makes a little more sense.

The Shelby GT350 is a straight shooter, the no-excuses Mustang we've wanted forever. At a base price of about $50,000 and with GT350Rs going for well over $65,000, it's a car we'd track a few times of year--then seal up in a nitrogen bubble, under glass, ready to break into it when the autonomous cars finally come to bore us all to death.

The Camaro SS? At about $37,000 bone stock, you could practically have two of them for what a GT350R gets on eBay these days. It's a huge bargain, and at its fire-sale price, you can have two--one for play, one for keeps.

Whichever one you choose, just know this: The Mustang and Camaro aren't pony cars any more, not at these prices. And they're not muscle cars either, not with their next-level road manners.

They're real performers. Real sports cars.
