MuscleCar Tuner Showdown: HPE650/SuperSnake/SpeedfactorySRT8
We've compared nearly every combination of modern American muscle cars on
the market. Now it's time for the ultimate showdown - Hennessey's Camaro HPE650 vs Shelby's GT500
Super Snake vs Speedfactory's Challenger SRT8. We head to the Dyno, the test track and the
racetrack to determine which of these tuned pony cars reigns supreme.

Camaro SS V8!!! [HD]
Chevrolet Camaro SS
powered by a 6.2 liter V8 engine that gives a total of 432 HP...
As per @randumbuller, "actually, the automatic Camaros produce 400hp with an L99
6.2L. the 426hp LS3 only came in the manual 1SS cars. Like this so the
truth gets out!"
Thanks for pointing that out!
Can Jag Beat BMW? Jaguar XF vs BMW 550i @ the Track
MORE TRACK INFO @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Last May, the newly introduced Jaguar XF surprised us. It went head to
head with the best midsize luxury sedans from Germany and came out on top.
It was fast, comfortable and surprisingly competent through turns, but of
course, that was the top-of-the-line supercharged model.
For 2010, the Jaguar XF gets a pair of all-new 5.0-liter V8s: one normally
aspirated in the XF Premium, the other supercharged in the new XFR. We'll
test an XFR soon, but today Inside Line is the first to take the new
non-supercharged 5.0-liter-powered 2010 Jaguar XF Premium to the test
track. Rated at 385 horsepower and 380
pound-feet of torque it's not quite as powerful as the former 4.2-liter
supercharged V8, but it's close.
To see just how close, we brought back a 2009 BMW 550i to see how the new
Jag stacks up when it's not getting help from a Supercharger. Given that the BMW is giving up 25
hp and 20 lb-ft of torque, we expected a close contest - and got one.
2010-2012 Ford Fusion review
The Ford Fusion rivals some of the best family sedans. The hybrid version
gets very impressive fuel economy. See how the Ford Fusion compares to
other family sedans: http://bit.ly/11eS5fW

Blistering performance, excellent braking, and capable handling,
distinguish the Chevy Camaro SS. But its girth
undermines agility, and visibility suffers from the styling.
