Texas-tuner Hennessey Performance has been having some of the most fun during the COVID-19 crisis as we’ve seen them pick up a Sebring Orange C8 Corvette which then had the world’s first twin-turbo package added. We’ve also seen multiple comparisons against a number of challengers in a stock C8 Corvette, and following its nitrous upgrade, the same Corvette made a top speed run of 205.1 MPH.
With the nitrous set-up, the 2020 Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe now has 510 hp and with the added power, Hennessey decided to do a Roll and Dig Race comparision video against a bone-stock Lamborghini Huracan with 602 hp. The Lambo has the stealthly exotic car looks and the power to back it up! It’s a much closer competitor in our view to the new mid-engine Corvette than the Dodge Charger Hellcat and Ford Shelby GT500 that were compared to the Stingray before its nitrous mod was added.
In the race from the dig, the 2020 Corvette launches and grabs a car length lead on the Lamborghini and holds it until the very end of the dragstrip where the Huracan is able to out-accelerate the Stingray between the 100-120 mph mark. As the Huracan doesn’t have launch control, both cars were launched at idle instead. With the roll race, the driver of the Huracan crossed the starting line with the car in 4th gear while the Corvette driver was in 2nd. Once again, the Stingray was able to pull faster through the lower gears and it was only at the end that the Lamborghini prevails.
From Hennessey Performance via YouTube:
2020 C8 Corvette (Hennessey stainless steel exhaust, lightweight wheels with Hoosier race tries) and Lamborghini Huracan (bone stock) race each other from a dig and from a roll.
The Lamborghini costs a cool quarter-of-a-million dollars and is very fast as we see. But for that price, you could purchase all three levels of the 2020 Corvette (Z51 Coupe, Z51 Convertible, 1LT Base) and probably have a little cash left over for some custom wheels or other accessories.
