[VIDEO] Supercharged Corvette Z06 vs Koenigsegg CCXR


Supercharged Corvette Z06 vs Koenigsegg CCXR

Here is a video that will make you feel good about owning a Corvette. This modified supercharged Z06 with 700 horsepower lines up against Sweden’s Koenigsegg CCXR with just over 1,000 horsepower for a 1-mile drag race. Both cars seemingy get off to a slow start thanks to a bunch a wheel spin, but the Z06 finds traction first, jumps out in the lead and never looks back.

The comments regarding the video on autoblog and Youtube are predictable: Z06 owner sandbagging hp, both drivers suck with quarter mile times in the twelves, Vettes can only go fast in a straight line, etc. But that’s racing. Exotic sports cars with huge horsepower numbers are great for bragging, but unless you know how to tap its power correctly, you’re going to get wheel spin and second place.

  1. I totally agree with your comments Keith, have seen this posted on so many web sites and had a good laugh at the denial of those that believe the Koenigsegg is the superior car. Having gobs of power doesn’t necessary translate to quicker times, then they are comparing the CCX to a Rolex and the Vette to a Swatch… what ever those all mechanical Rolex’s don’t provide accurate time either, they just can’t stand the facts that the better car won no matter what the price tag! Corvette forever!!!

  2. You actually believe this ? … it’s a 1000 hourse power car with 12.x sec in 1/4 mile how come??? i mean the stock z06 corvette could do 11.x sec in 1/4 …
