It's another all-American !.

This time we have the new and magnificent going up against the great GT.

Let's enter the stats. The utilizes a 5.5 litre naturally aspirated flat-plane crank V8 that puts out 670HP and 625NM of torque. Power goes to the rear wheels just via an 8-speed Dual Clutch gearbox and it weighs in 1,585 KG.

The is fitted with a twin-turbo 3.5 L V6 that outputs 650HP and 750NM of torque. Power once again goes to the rear wheels only via a 7-speed Dual Clutch transmission and it weighs in at just 1,385 KG!

So will the more recent and more affordable Z06 take the win or will the mighty Ford GT prove its worth and put the Corvette in its location? LET'S RACE and learn!!!.

      Cause they had no professional behind the wheel of the Vette. I’ve seen Carrera S do a quarter mile of 11.2 seconds before, let alone a base C8 with proper launch.

    I’m surprised the GT wasn’t in V Max mode drops the wing down to its lowered position and reduces the drag for drag racing it would have pulled even harder! I have so much love for both of these pieces of art though

      Incorrect. That makes it slower on drags… in race mode it drops n makes the car more sticky and track based…

    The Corvette I discovered in the Gran Turismo game, it is the pathway to challenging race cars without the price burden of owning a race car. Great respect for it because on the track with sticky tyres, stiffened suspension and a sports NA tune up, it can hold it’s own against many cars that cost 5 – 10 times more. Mad respect for it, I’m impressed how the game never exaggerated it’s real world potential.

      The Corvette ZR1 of each generation always steals a few world lap time records for a production car, so in reality, Corvette is one of the few names in the car industry that’s truly considered a world beater, company shared with McLaren’s top spec cars like the P1 and Senna, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, and a few more

    Matt we all absolutely love your content, keep up the great work but if I may suggest you incorporate the 100th decimal place in the quarter mile time ? Seeing just how close it actually was I think is pretty interesting. Just a suggestion 🤝

      since a GT cost 10 times more… it only exists because Ford needed to homologate production to make it eligible to race. it’s a hand built carbon fiber race car.

      Go back to 2012 when Ferrari produced the F12, a 733hp naturally aspirated car. Go way back to 1994 when the McLaren F1 first came out, 620hp naturally aspirated. You don’t need metal snails to have a powerful car.
