[VIDEO] Bone Stock 2020 Corvette Stingray Runs Quarter Mile in 11.56 @ 120.34 mph


Some of the first 2020 Corvettes in the wild found themselves at the drag strip over the weekend and the first match-up we want to focus on is this battle between the C8 Corvette and a Green 2020 Shelby Mustang GT 500 aka “The Hulk”.

The car’s owner hails from @EastCoastSupercharging and they got in three quarter-mile runs against the 760-horsepower Mustang at New Jersey’s ATCO Dragway.

The Torch Red 2LT Z51 Coupe is nicely optioned with competition seats and as the car is waiting in the staging lanes, the owner shows off some of the features including how the Front End Lift functions.

TITLE


When it comes time to line up, the first run is a bust as the owner of the 2020 Corvette failed to properly engage the Launch Control on the car. The Mustang’s owner tells him that’s what we are here for and the two cars set-up for their second run.

It’s during the second run that the Corvette runs its fastest time of 11.56 seconds at 120.34 mph. As a comparison, the official performance figures from GM on the 2020 Corvette Stingray are 11.2 seconds at 121 mph. The 2014 Corvette Stingray official quarter-mile time from GM is 12.0 seconds at 119 mph.

  1. OK…lets see..the Mustang has 760 HP and the Corvette has 495 HP…I guess we will have to wait for the
    Z06 to come out, to get a fair comparison. Or…we can compare the base, bare bones C8, to whatever
    the current stock, bare bones Mustang can do.

  2. Not much of a launch, maybe go home and practice what to do before you embarrass the Corvette brotherhood with some pathetic 1/4 mile pass.

  3. Kevin Williams, way too much would be my guess. Ford has lost it’s mind with the pricing of the new GT500 and the current Ford GT.

  4. Could have given us a little more info on the Mustang (and not hidden part of time slip) since we’re all car guys and interested in what the competition is doing. The Mustang ran a 10 something at 132, would like to know if that is stock? The Z06 will do MUCH better.
