This one was inevitable, and we figured it would be our friends at Dragtimes would make it happen. In their latest upload, Brooks in his yellow Ford GT challenge a new Corvette ZR1. Palm Beach International Raceway usually gets an afternoon shower this time of year, but last weekend was calm and clear.
Chevrolet’s latest Corvette prevails, at least on paper. It offers 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque. The opponent wearing the Blue Oval has 647 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque. The weight difference is marginal, with Ford beating Chevy by 200 lbs. Since both cars were designed to run above 200 mph, a series of roll races will show you who wins the aerodynamic battle. In V-Max mode, the GT drops 2″ and retracts the spoilers. The Corvette ZR1 has the “high wing”, which is great for road courses. But at high speeds, it acts like a parachute, not ideal for drag racing. Tell us which one would win from a dig, and which one you would drive in the comments below.
