TEASER. Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 vs BMW 435i M-Sport

VIDEO. If faced with a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and a BMW 435i M-Sport, which would you spend your $70K(ish) on?


Those of you with a spare $70K(ish) burning a hole in your pocket may be wondering how much bang you could get for your buck. We argue ‘plenty’, depending on which end of the spectrum you aim for.

With the BMW 435i M-Sport for instance, you get European refinement, comfort, and practicality, with the added bonus of 306hp on tap under the bonnet and rear-wheel drive for occasional lairiness.

And then there’s the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, which offers grunt, grunt and just an added dash of grunt courtesy of a supercharged V8 and 580hp just asking to be let off the leash. “Stuff seat coolers and Bluetooth”, you may be saying, “I want to melt some tyres.”

But which of our $70K(ish) coupes would we go for? You’ll find out in our full-length feature, coming soon to crankandpiston.com
