Corvette 1 of 16 Supercars in Nitto’s Battle of the Streets
Nitto is running its Battle of the Streets bracket, a series of drag races between supercars. And guess what? There’s a C7 Corvette in the running.
When we first saw this C7 Stingray going up against a Lamborghini Gallardo, we figured the Lambo would walk the Corvette due to the increased horsepower and AWD. Let’s just say we were stunned by the outcome.
Well, this is the type of footage we have all been waiting for: straight from the onboard Performance Data Recorder of a C7 Z06 hitting the drag strip with some oomph.
Here’s what happens when you pit Chevy’s Corvette Z06 against Dodge’s Viper TA. Hint: All hell breaks loose when the drivers put their feet down.
Whoever said we’re in the twilight of horsepower and performance cars hasn’t looked outside recently. If anything, we’re in the new golden age of both.
Just take the following video of a race between a C7 Z06 and a motorcycle as proof.
