The C6 Corvette ZR1 was, and still is, an American hero for the Corvette faithful. The C6 ZR1 was capable of melting faces with its LS9 6.2-liter supercharged V8, making it the most powerful Corvette ever produced at the time, also earning it the name “Blue Devil.”
But, the U.S. is not isolated from high-power machines. In fact, the Swedes have their own take on high performance. Koenigsegg has entered the supercar elite with the CCR and its performance capabilities. And now, the two have duked it out. Does the brute from Bowling Green have what it takes?
Here are the specs: the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 found in the C6 ZR1 makes an impressive 638 hp and 604 lb-ft of torque. That’s more than enough to know you’re faster that 95 percent of what’s roaming your local roads. But, the Koenigsegg packs a greater punch. 806 hp and 680 lb-ft are produced from the 4.7-liter twin-supercharged V8.
You can see where this battle is heading.
The two cars start from a roll as to not burn in a fiery car wreck if launched from a dig, but it’s immediate the CCR has the C6 ZR1. Though, the ZR1 driver could use some practice with the gearbox, and possibly close the gap somewhat, the CCR outright outperforms the car.
