There is no lack of options when purchasing a contemporary performance vehicle. 

A new YouTube video pits a surprising duo—a 2023 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and a 2023 BMW M2—against one another in a category that includes a broad range of brands and models.

The Chevrolet 6.2-liter V8 engine with supercharging is what powers the Camaro ZL1. 

It outperforms the BMW with 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. 

However, the additional power has a drawback—a greater curb weight. The Camaro is 3,886 pounds in weight.

Both automobiles' six-speed manual gearboxes drive the rear wheels of their respective vehicles.
