It’s the classic battle of old vs. new, technology vs. brute force in a a drop-dead Chevy vs. Chevy battle: The Camaro ZL1 vs. Pro Touring legend Mark Stielow’s 1969 Camaro, The Red Devil. Stielow is a GM Engineer and as such, poured plenty of wicked parts into his first Gen. Camaro, like a 427 CI LS9 under the hood that’s good for 750 HP and 800 LB-FT. It’s backed by a six-speed stick and full Detroit Speed suspension. As for the new ZL1, well, you know the drill: A 580 HP LSA under the hood, full road race suspension and massive brakes make it one of the best corner carvers of our time!

In this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, the two Camaros are pitted against each other at the famous GingerMan Raceway in South Haven, Michigan. Which one is faster? Watch and find out.

With a 580 HP LSA under the hood, full road race suspension and massive brakes the ZL1 ain't no joke.
