Muscle Car Rental

We have the Muscle Car Rental consists of two current models.  We have the all new 2010 Chevy Camaro SS and the all new 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Hemi.

Now both vehicles are American made muscle cars.  And both vehicles are now available for rental at Olympic Rent-A-Car of Beverly Hills.  We have the Chevy Camaro SS a true muscle car manufactures by Chevrolet and we have the Challenger SRT8 another true muscle car manufactured by Dodge.

Now I don’t know, but I can almost certainly bet you that Dodge and Chevy had a muscle car rivalry while building each of these true American muscle cars.  Well, we have decided to put them to the test and offer you some research provided by professional drivers, magazine journalists and our rental clients reviews.

2010 Chevy Camaro SS

In our recent pony car comparison test, the retro-heavy — and just plain heavy — 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS walked away with top honors in its debut. The big V8-powered coupe needed a new challenge.  So we squared the brooding visage of our SS-badged protagonist up against the cruelest bunch of savages we could find, the range-topping 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8.

Math can’t do a burnout or scratch 2nd gear, but it can provide clues regarding the performance to expect from the Challenger SRT8. Each of the SRT8′s 425 horsepower is saddled with 9.8 pounds. The nerds would suggest that the SRT8 should be about 10 percent quicker.  Or not. The SRT8 posts a 5.3-second run to 60 mph (5.0 seconds with 1 foot of rollout like on a drag strip) and trips a 13.6-second quarter-mile at 104 mph.

Our first impressions remain unchanged. The Camaro’s tremendously stiff chassis allowed GM engineers to dial in the friendliest ride-handling trade-off here. Bumps don’t pound it senseless, as the suspension’s compliance absorbs even ruinous roads without flintiness or float.

And in the key muscle car measure of ass-hauling, it delivers. With a listless, flat roar from the 6.2-liter V8, 60 mph falls in 5 seconds flat (4.7 seconds with 1 foot of rollout like on a drag strip) and the quarter-mile drops in 13.1 seconds at 109.4 mph, beating out the pricier Challenger by a half-second. This trap speed is actually a hair lower than the last SS we tested and might improve with a few more miles on the clock.                                     2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8

It seems that the automobile experts in this true muscle car comparison have to give the advantage to the Chevy Camaro SS over the Dodge Challenger SRT8.  We have to give it a tie between our rental clients reviews and remarks about both cars before and after they have rented them.

The Chevy Camaro SS is priced a lot more attratively then the Dodge Challenger SRT8.  Keeping that it mind, I think you are getting more for your money when it comes to the Chevy Camaro SS.  I trully also like the smooth and really comfortable seats and ride that the Camaro SS provies over the Challenger.

However the Challenger is a bigger and better looking muscle car.  It sound a lot louder and offers a really more powerful sound and punch then the Camaro SS.  Since you are not planning on buying these muscle car rentals, I would have to call it a true tie.  But if you are coming into to LA to test drive one of these muscle cars as a prospective personal vehicle back home.  Then you may want to consider the Chevy Camaro SS over the Dodge Challenger SRT8?
