When I was a kid, the best car ever was the Lamborghini Countach. It was the fastest, coolest looking car around. I always wanted to have one when I was younger. I remember saying once when I was ten or so that I wanted to buy one when I was older, to which one of my uncles quipped, “You’d better start saving now!”
Today, I own a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro SS. On a whim, I decided to compare its performance specs with the dream car of my youth. Here are the results of my research*:
Looks like I’m already driving the supercar I always wanted as a kid!
*There’s a few tenths of a second variance in some of the performance numbers I’ve seen, since they are partially dependent on driver skill, but the Camaro consistently outperforms the Countach.
