Way back in the day the streets of Tombstone, Arizona, was the place where two men could enjoy a good shootout, but the dark side was only one man would walk away. These days it’s the streets of Willow Springs International Raceway where two cars can pair off and shoot it out and no one dies.
Watch what happens when Chevy High Performance’s sister brand Motor Trend takes its 2016 Car of the Year, the 2016 Camaro, and pits it against a 2015 BMW M4 on the Streets of Willow. Motor Trend stated, “Our COTY award went to the Camaro lineup as a whole, but the model that really sold it for us was the SS. It’s got a 455 hp, 455 lb-ft, 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 heart connected to a stout six-speed manual transmission powering only the rear wheels. The chassis is the latest version of GM’s highly acclaimed Alpha platform, the same underpinnings you’ll find beneath the skin of the Cadillac ATS and CTS, the latter also a COTY winner. The M4 comes with so many changes compared to the regular 3 Series that BMW gave it a new chassis code: F82 instead of F32 for the run-of-the-mill 4 Series. Under the Haube rests a 3.0-liter inline-six souped up by way of two turbochargers that help pump out 425 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. Like the Camaro, the M4 has a six-speed manual and is rear-wheel drive. Although the Chevy has more power and torque, the BMW is lighter at 3,512 pounds versus 3,696.
