The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 has been eating up the automotive headlines by being one of the most exciting sports cars of the year. Just yesterday, Motor Trend awarded the new Camaro Z/28 its 2014 Best Driver’s Car award, which goes to prove that the new top-of-the-line, track-oriented Camaro is a force to be reckoned with.

“The mission of the new Z/28 was to create the most capable, best-handling Camaro in our history,” said Mark Reuss, GM executive vice president for global product development.

We decided that today’s Face-off-Friday should focus on the new Camar Z/28 and then we decided it should go head-to-head with another sports car that makes a lot of headlines – the Nissan GT-R.
