Two monsters of power at the drag strip.
As car enthusiasts, we love a good drag race. Two cars just hammering it out in a straight line in a showcase of power and driving skill. Here, we have two heavyweights of pure power from different continents with different ways of going fast.
In one lane is the Underground Racing twin-turbocharged Lamborghini Gallardo that is pushing four-figures of power with all-wheel drive. The other lane has the record-holding Corvette Z06 that has thrown down a 9.3-second ¼-mile pass and is the fastest Z06 in the standing mile.
One’s RWD, one’s AWD, both are seriously fast.
While launching was certainly an issue, the Corvette took home the win with a 9.526-second run at 148.22 mph pass. The Gallardo lost with a 9.836-second time but came in with a very impressive 173.58 mph trap speed, which means that the race might’ve had a different outcome at a longer track.
