Yesterday, we showed you the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 that had received the respectable aftermarket treatment and now we have back on the LT4-engined Camaro topic, albeit with the drag racing twist.
The 2017 ZL1 adventure here involves the bone stock car, one that Hennessey Performance is preparing to modify. As you could expect, a Texan developer couldn’t help but see how a standard vehicle performs before it started massaging the thing.
Thus, we’re now treated with the drag race involving a 2017 Camaro ZL1 and, of course, the 2017 Corvette Z06 (obviously, also the stock car.
As John Hennessey explains in this video while trying to hide a smile, the two duked it out over the length of around 1,400 feet or so – it only makes sense to go over the 1,320 feet mark to evidentiate and what happens once the quarter-mile brawl is over.
The start? It was done in second gear, at around 40 mph, with a pair of Chevys hitting 130 mph at the end of this fight.
With these machines both packing stick shifts, a scale footprint separating them, which sits at over 350 lbs, should make the Z06 the clear winner. Nevertheless, the supercar is known for certain traction issues, and we can’t solely rely on specs here.
