Last night we shared the Hennessey video featuring a C7 Corvette Stingray vs a C8 Corvette from both a roll and a dig. I was surprised by some of the mail I received saying it wasn’t a fair fight. Hardly any of these “comparison” videos are. My thoughts were, “did you see how well the C7 Corvette did?”
So let me spring this next “unfair” comparison video from YouTuber Speed Phenom as he races his stock 495-hp C8 Corvette against a straight-piped 755+ hp C7 2019 Corvette ZR1.
Speed Phenom is joined by his friend John and his Sebring Orange Corvette ZR1 with the ZTK Performance Package. Not only do we see the two Corvettes go head to head, but each of the owners drives the other’s car which opens up a whole lot of discussion about the characteristics of the new mid-engine Corvette Stingray.
In addition to the faceoff, we also get to see some scenes from the world-famous OC Cars and Coffee event.
From Speed Phenom via YouTube:
Welcome back to another Vlog! Today we head to OC Cars and Coffee, and experience one of the biggest turnouts ever! Also, John and his C7 ZR1 join us for the awesome drive. In this episode we set up a head to head 0-60 to test out how these two cars launch in comparison, and in the same real world environment. No sticky prepped surface at all! Does the mid-engine platform allow the C8 to compete with the ultimate C7? I hope you enjoy!
