Corvette ZR1 And Ford GT Do Battle In Half Mile

When it comes to the hottest cars on the market, naturally, as they come out with the new generations, car fanatics are going to want to compare them to one another. With the Chevrolet versus Ford rivalry that has been going on since the dawn of both of these brands, one particular matchup that you will see discussed over and over again is putting a Chevrolet Corvette up against the Ford GT in some capacity. This time, the Corvette that happens to be going up against the revived GT is the latest of the Corvette lineage in the 2019 ZR1.
With the ZR1 cranking out 755 horsepower, boasting more than 100 ponies over the GT’s 647 horsepower, you would think that in an all-out half mile drag race, it would be easy work for the Chevrolet product. However, when push comes to shove at the Wannagofast event in Immokalee, FL, it seems like both cars really have their hands full. With a competition like this, it’s really more of a car race than a driver’s race and as we can tell by the trap speed, the most important metric in a race like this, it really seems like these cars are quite evenly matched. However, it does look like the GT comes out ahead of the ZR1, at least in this particular setting.
Down in the video below from DragTimes, we’re able to spectate this clash of the Titans, seeing just how these cars deal with one another in such a competition. Perhaps it’s weight, gearing, or maybe it’s a little bit of something else but this GT really does seem to pull a little bit of something out of its pocket when we consider the power discrepancy that is overcome by the Ford product that really had to be a shock for everyone who saw the outcome of this one.
