Instagram Video Catches Corvette ZR1 vs. Z06 Battle
Well, Corvette Forum member, “Iker”, had to know that this thread would heat things up a bit here. Yup, it seems that even with all the brotherly love you tend to find in the Corvette family, there’s a bitter rivalry brewing in the house between fans of the new Z06 and those of the Corvette ZR1.
While I sincerely doubt it was intentional, Iker’s post here of three Instagram videos of a C6 Corvette ZR1 beating a C7 Z06 in a street race seems to have flamed the fires.
Whether it’s questioning the skill level of the driver, or the comment posted by “PDCjonny” that reads, “Nothing says progress like being equal to or slower than a car from 2009,” (ouch) it’s a good indication that deciding whether the new Z06 is better than the ZR1 will probably forever be debated.
