About Chevrolet Camaro SS and the Lexus LC 500:
Both the Chevrolet Camaro SS and the Lexus LC 500 fitted with powertrains that can produce more than 450 horsepower, so when it comes to their overall performance, the distinction between them comes down to other aspects such as the engines, weight, and aerodynamics.
A drag race between the two is the best way to compare the Camaro SS with the LC 500. Mainly because they are fighting side by side under the same conditions.
This exactly the purpose of the video you see here. It drags race simulation created in GranSo while some would say it just a simulation. It’s not, as a Gran Turismo drag race will help us find the faster one out of the two outside the virtual world. Turismo Sport. Before you inquire, Gran Turismo is one of the best racing simulators ever. All cars available in the game replicate their real-life counterparts accurately.
If after two minutes you stop watching this drag race. You may be tempted to believe that the Camaro SS is putting the Lexus to shame. But what happens in the remaining minute is a bit embarrassing for Chevrolet. The changing of the Camaro SS into sixth gear, which mostly serves as a highway mode, helps the Lexus LC500 to push it like a missile, all before winning the race in the most obvious way.
The difference between the two doesn’t seem so big on paper:
For example, the Lexus LC 500 comes equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 engine which produces just over 470 horsepower. It’s the same engine as on the Lexus RC F and it makes a 4.4 seconds sprint of 0 to 100 kph (62 mph).
On the other side, the Camaro SS is fitted with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 455 horsepower. Enabling the vehicle to accelerate in 4.0 seconds from 0 to 100 kph (62 mph).
