Quick, ricer versus muscle car; who wins?
If you said “muscle car,” you’re 100% wrong, though that should be the obvious answer when the muscle car in question is a 650 HP supercharged Corvette C7 Stingray.
The video below shows the two cars battling from a 65 mph roll, and from the get-go, it’s apparent that the K20 Honda Civic has this one in the bag. Obviously, this is no ordinary Civic; it features a 67 mm turbo forcing air into the otherwise stock motor. It’s also running E85, which of course, has a higher octane rating, allowing for more ignition advance with no pinging.
The Corvette has an ECS blower, headers, and a methanol injection kit to lower the inlet air temperature. It’s not quite enough to give it the performance edge, although the Corvette does stick fairly close to the Civic through the 1600 foot run. The Civic posts a time of 9.28 at 154.9 mph, to the Corvette’s slightly lesser 9.34 at 150.8 mph.
