The Corvette/Viper rivalry may be rekindled, but so far the snake hasn’t fared well against its Corvette ZR1 enemy. With the range-topping Vette beating the SRT on the track, and on the dyno, the Chevy seems to be winning in everything that matters. Perhaps the V10-powered powerhouse from Auburn Hills will win in a burnout contest, then? Nope.
Edmunds.com managed to lay a 514-foot streak with the ZR1 in their latest Burnout Super Test, nearly one hundred feet more than the Viper — setting a new burnout record for the publication. Still, listening to that leviathan 8.4L V10 motor bounce off the rev limiter in a cloud of tire smoke is intoxicating. And we knew the ‘Vette is good with burnouts… but 514 feet is incredible. New Year’s Goal: break a 514-foot burnout in a Corvette ZR1.
