Corvettes, be they ZR1s or Z06s, have always seemed to rule in Edmunds’ Burnout Super Tests.
Driver Josh Jacquot’s latest challenge in his continuing series featured the “old timer” 2012 ZR1 against the “young whippersnapper” 2013 SRT Viper.
The rules? “Rev until the engine stops revving,” Jacquot says. “Engage first gear, foot off the clutch. Each car gets three runs – longest strip wins.”
With a guitar strumming reminiscent of a Wild West shootout to introduce the video segment, it didn’t take long for the “good guy” Corvette to remain on top yet again and send the “bad guy” packing.
In fact, the ZR1 was so dominant this time that it laid down a black stripe of 514 feet, 3 inches – nearly 100 feet longer than the Viper and 42 feet longer than the reigning champ, the GT500.
Get out of town, GT500!
In spring 2010, Edmunds took a Viper SRT-10 and a 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon prototype out to a track to determine which car could lay the longest burnout. That time, the Viper’s best stripe was 273 feet, 4 inches. The Z06 had a long run of 323 feet, 7 inches.
Then last year, the Z06 Centennial whipped a Cadillac CTS-V coupe.
We can’t wait to see what the upcoming C7 will do in a future test.
