Hi I'm Sean. I will tell you some suggestions. You said you love for power and speed. But, it depends on the engine. If you want the power, you will have to buy V-8 engine. Dodge Challenger SRT8 is 425horsepowers, and 0-60mph in 4.8 seconds. Chevy Camaro SS is 426horsepower(if you choose V-8) and 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds. It's almost same. You will just have to think about what kind of style you like. I will give you one more tip. If you choose to buy V- 6 engine, you will have to buy camaro ss. (Camero 306hp, 0-60mph in 5.7seconds, dodge challenger v-6 250hp, 0-60mph in 7.5seconds.) So, I would rather choose v-8. I hope this could help you little bit.


go for shelby cobra 500 takes both .


The real question is what do you want to do with the car? The Challenger will top out at just around 175 mph but where in the hell will you ever go that fast. The camaro is a little slower, but not by much. the real difference is that the camaro is designed around a Holden suspension and corners much better than the challenger. it is also much lighter and because of this, it is quicker off the line. the only bad thing is that the camaro has almost no rear seat and the challenger has a fairly large rear seat which if you have people with you can make a huge difference.


While you are right in a sense roy, the shelby is also a $55,000 car where a camaro SS is $32,000 car. Secondly, the shelby has much more power, yet it will not handle as well because the ford differential in the back is known to lock up too easily and the car tends to slide out much easier than the camaro or the challenger. Finally, chevy is in the process of building the camro z28 which will use a 551 hp supercharged V8 from the CTS and that will blow the shelby out of the water.




haha yea right you're just trying to find an inconspicous car to bomb something. Go back and burn in the hell your people created!


i love the new challenger looks great!
