We knew it would happen, and it has. Chevrolet’s most powerful Corvette ever lined up for good ol’ fashioned drag race with Dodge’s potent muscle car, the Challenger Demon.
However, it doesn’t work out in the Demon’s favor as the 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 crushes Dodge’s pride and joy at the drag strip. Allegedly, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 is bone stock save for a set of drag radials. Which, even the Demon doesn’t exactly come with.
When the two cars line up, the Challenger Demon does shoot off first, thanks to a very quick reaction time, but the Corvette ZR1 quickly hauls itself down the track and scoots across the finish line first. The time slip doesn’t lie; the Corvette managed a 10.20-second run at 137 mph, while the Dodge Demon clocked an 11.59 at 134 mph. But remember, the Demon’s record factory time is still well under ten seconds.
But, there’s more to the story. The 10.20 time isn’t even the Corvette ZR1’s fastest time. Previously, the owner shot down the track in 10.12 seconds and became the fastest 2019 Corvette ZR1 in the process. Check out the race up above.
