Corvette Z06 Stunning Huracan Evo, Ferrari 458 Race Car In Drag Races

Posted on

The Chevrolet Corvette is a car that always weighs above its weight. The high-performance Z06 is no different, able to compete with much more expensive cars. A new video from Emelia Hartford demonstrates the performance prowess of the new Z06 by pitting it against the Ferrari 458 race car and Lamborghini Huracan Evo. Does the Corvette stand a chance?

Powering the Corvette Z06 is Chevrolet’s 5.5 liter DOHC V8 engine. The naturally aspirated plant produces 670 horsepower (500 kilowatts) and 460 pound-feet (623 Newton-meters) of torque, and can send the coupe to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 2.6 seconds. It weighs 3,700 pounds (1,678 kilograms), making it the most powerful and heaviest car in the competition.

The Lamborghini Huracan Evo makes just 600 hp (447 kW) from the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10, but is also lighter at 3,400 lbs (1,542 kg). The Ferrari 458 race car has less power compared to other cars, producing 570 hp (425 kW). It weighs 3,200 lbs (1,451 kg).

The first race pitted the Corvette against the 458, and it wasn’t a great battle. The Corvette slid off the line and kept the Ferrari in the rearview mirror until the finish line. Starting the race off the beaten path didn’t help Ferrari, who quickly fell behind and couldn’t catch up.

The Huracan Evo is a better match for the Chevrolet, but better doesn’t mean perfect, and the performance difference is obvious from the start. The Corvette had a good launch from the starting line, leaving the Huracan behind and unable to catch up. The Lamborghini driver made a wrong shift in the first race, giving the Corvette another win, but he got a better start in the second. However, the Corvette still walked away from the Evo.

The Corvette Z06 will soon start reaching customers, and we suspect owners will be excited to race it. The car will line up next to a variety of performance vehicles, and we’ll be excited to watch where it lands among its other, often more expensive, competitors.
