We all know that tri-motor Tesla Model S Plaid with 1,020 hp is fast, but how does it fare against a heavily modified Corvette C8? CarWow wanted to find out, so they pit bot vehicles against each other in a drag racing showdown.
With a name like EXORCIST Camaro ZL1 ‘Final Edition,’ you’d expect Hennessey’s latest muscle car creation to be insanely fast. Thankfully, that is exactly the case, thanks to a modified supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8 engine that now makes 1,000 hp and 996 lb-ft of torque.
One auto enthusiast turned their 1999 C5 Corvette Coupe into a bizarre ‘Doom Buggy’, and it could be yours for the right price. Power comes from a 5.7L LS6 V8 engine sourced from a 2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 making 405 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
Does the Vetter Slash look familiar? If so, that’s because the vehicle is based on a C6 Corvette. Power comes from a 6.0L LS2 V8 engine making 400 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Aesthetically, it boasts a custom fiberglass shell framed with steel tubing, while passengers enter from the reverse gullwing doors.
We know the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 is a $105,300 USD sports car that is fast as some supercars, but what about the 2023 McLaren 765LT, which retails for over 3-times more? The former is powered by an LT5 5.5L V8 engine making 670 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, while the latter has a turbocharged 4.0L V8 generating 755 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.
