Default Lingenfelter ZR1 takes on 458 in Russia

Watch the video here: Lingenfelter ZR1 Goes Ferrari Hunting

Drag info has great drag racing vids, and this one isn't an exception. The focus is on seeing how the 458 stacks up against tuned versions of it's competition. At first, it seems a little unfair to put a stock car against supercharged versions of already fast cars. But consider the cost of the Ferrari against the other cars in the video and suddenly the comparison makes a lot for sense.

Either way, enjoy the vid.

True, but do keep in mind that the C6 ZR1 does come from the factory already supercharged. I'm sure you knew that of course but just wanted to make sure that anyone else reading this that might not know that doesn't suddenly think that someone actively put a supercharger on a fast car that didn't already have one.

And yes, that particular ZR1 was aftermarket modified, but recent acceleration results have shown that even a properly driven stock C6 ZR1 (capable of 10.6 second 1/4 mile ETs with nearly 133mph trap speeds ) would very likely still beat a stock Ferrari 458 in a straight line as well.

why are you stalking me??

Are you gonna show up at any races this year? Did you even buy a vette? or did you just use a google image in your smack talk thread?

Atco is open every weekend. Crowds are light, so plenty of passes to get your yugo dialed in. They are having a grocery getter race next week. nothing faster than 16.0 dial in. and a .700 pro tree. Maybe you can cut a reasonably good light with that tree... you'll still go home first round...

I'm not stalking you I just find myself strangely attracted to you. Does that make you uncomfortable? Pucker up, sunshine.

Listen up, Hot Rod, the day you come even remotely close to the RTs I cut on a pro tree will be the day I start to take your jabs seriously. I'm not usually the one to brag BUT..... you may want to take this into consideration before you continue (that's Angelo Valla in the right lane who's a damn good driver). Game on!

Even a blind squirrel gets a nut once in a while... More importantly, who's win light came on?

And you have a new car to learn... Good luck with that...

Did you drug Angelo??? Man was asleep at the wheel...

I don't think I've ever said you were not a good driver - at one time...

You've been out of the game a long time punk... reflexes might not be what you remember... I guess that's why you need a rental...

agreed. that ZR1 should have beat the Ferrari by a lot more than that. I would take that AMS GTR in a heartbeat tho. I love those cars.
